Sales tax on Vinted: info for buyers

As an online marketplace operating in Canada, Vinted is required by law to collect and remit sales tax to the relevant Canadian authorities.

When does Sales tax apply?

Depending on your location and other factors, you may have to pay the sales tax when buying an item on Vinted. The sales tax may apply to the purchase of the item itself, as well as on shipping and our Buyer protection services.

The applicable sales tax will be shown at checkout. It will be added on top of the item price, the shipping price and Buyer Protection fee.

We will calculate, collect and remit the applicable sales tax to the respective authorities without bothering you.

What is the Sales tax rate?

It depends on many factors. These include the item/service type and price, drop-off and delivery locations, and others.

The total amount of taxes to be paid will be clearly displayed at the checkout once you have selected a shipping method and provided both the billing and delivery addresses or service point. 

A full breakdown of the taxes applied will be provided on the invoice issued to you when your order is confirmed, and on the credit note if your order is canceled.
