Hi, I’m Canadian. I have a friend who lives a squidget from the border. I’ve shipped Smoylent and People Chow no problems. In these cases I had the option to make my address my actual Canadian address and my shipping address my friend’s address. I could also then put my friend’s name on the ship to address so that he could go pick it up at the post office (this is essential)
Currently, when I try to subscribe to Soylent, I cannot put my address as Canadian while making my shipping address American. Why not? Do I just ignore this and put my friend’s address as as the billing address…? But then, I’ll also need to put his name on the billing address if I want him to pick it up for me. So now it’ll look like he’s using my credit card.
Look, I want to be a long-term customer so I really have no interest in making your system confused and not getting my monthly shipment or getting in trouble with my bank. As it currently stands I do not mind driving across the border once a month and paying customs (still works out more convenient than normal food plus I have a neat excuse to hang out with my bro once a month).
Is there no way around this? Or are Canadian customers willing to go so far as to enter America once a month for Soylent still out of luck?
UPDATE: Following EveB’s advise I did the “Actually, my adress is Vancouver…” and everything worked fine. I now have a month’s worth of Soylent and am a happy Canadian subsriber who drives down to the states once a month for pick-up. The border patrol did stop me, but after looking at it they let me through tax free. Also they now know to expect me every month so I probably wont be stopped next time. Woo hoo!
