The Top 10 Online Shopping Sites that Ship to Canada
If your a Canadian shopper searching for sites that ship to Canada and want to enjoy online shopping again or whether your an online shopping virgin, use this list to ease the pain and find the brand names you crave! (You may also find a designer bargain in the process!)
That said, here are The Shopping Supplement’s favourite Top 10 Online Shopping Sites for stylish Canadian online shoppers, based on the Shopping Supplement’s nutritional-value calculator which considers: Style, Steals, Service and Simplicity.
- Shop Bop
- Style Fly
- Top Shop
- Urban Outfitters
- Aldo / Browns
- Beyond the Rack
1.Shop Bop: Offering free delivery to Canada within 3 days is unmatchable. Shoppers can also create an account to save your favourite designers and items to make shopping more personable. Here you can find any American designer your after. Or if its a sale your desire they have a dedicated 70% off site that will keep you shopping for days. Well deserved first place honours from the Shopping Supplement.
2.Asos: “The undisputed champion of online fashion.” The Times Magazine. Offering men’s and women’s clothing, beauty, designer and an impressive outlet site, you won’t be dissapointed by product selection or price. This site is a favourite among Shopping Supplement readers who are no stranger to the world of online retai.
3.BlueFly: Here you can find every mid-range and high-end designer you can think of you can find it here at minimum 20% to 40% off the retail price. Shopping is made even easier by allowing users to shop by colour, price, designer making it exciting to discover a new favourite brand and shop the latest trends.
4.Overstock: Do you love a brand that you can’t get easily nearby and want to find it for less? Not a difficult task if your using Overstock.com. Now shipping to Canada, Overstock offers items from well-known brands such as BCBG, Calvin Klein, Tahari and Michael Kors. Shipping costs are calculated at time of payment as items may be shipped from various locations. Organization of the site is superb as you can shop by price, size, designer, clearance, etc.
5.Style Fly: Looking for a Canadian designed line such as (my favourite) Gentle Fawn? You’ll find it at StyleFly. Shipping is a bit steep at $15 but worth the extra dollars if you’ve found the brand you’ve been searching for. They also offer a price match guarantee and a style point program.
6.Top Shop: This famed UK brand has opened its doors to many long-awaiting Canadian customers by offering shipment to Canadian addresses. Delivery is 5-7 days and 7.50 pounds. Shop their exclusive celebrity lines (such as the enormously successfuly line designed by UK model Kate Moss), their own cult-followed Top Shop line or their studio line which is home to a handful of iconic UK brand names.
7.Urban Outfitters: The $10 flat rate shipping and free shipping on orders over $150, Urban Oufitters is a popular go-to site for urban chic style and scoring unique items with a hippie inspiration. I also love their apartment collection and sale section where you’ll find great deals on trendy styles all year round.
8.Sephora: If you’ve ever been to a Sephora location you know its your one-stop shop for quality makeup brands. Even if there is a Sephora store in your area the site offers a greater variety, additional brands, and reviews. If you can pick it up in-store its not worth the extra shipping charge (even if you do get free samples with every order!) but its still worth a look around the site to see what fellow purchasers thought about the product your thinking of buying as the site has an excellent rating system.
9.Aldo/ Browns: These two are tied for the best shoe site around! If you search for designer shoes you can find it at any of the above mentioned sites. But if your looking for quality and great style, sales, service and shipping costs then look no further. Both offer in-store returns at a location near you to take the stress out of buying shoes online and offer a huge selection of shoes, bags and jewellery (aldo).
10.Beyond the Rack: This is the one members-only shopping site that made it on this list – and for good reason. Each day the site unveils new designer events running for a limited time offering limited quantity at up to 70% off. Shipping is reasonable at $11.95 and delivery time varies. Don’t shop for items that you need for an upcoming event or for gifts. Delivery time is unreliable as Beyond the Rack works as a middleman in scoring us great deals so if their supplier takes a long time it will take even longer to get to you. Knowing this as you go into the sale makes a world of difference and nothing is quite like the excitement of scoring a designer item at 70% off!
Now that you have the online shopping insider info for Canadians what more do you need to shop?
