Ranks #18 of 24 (better than 26%) of all Retailers
Introduction(About yourself, 1-3 sentences maximum)
I am constantly on the look out for quality supplements that do not break the bank. Being from Canada,
this is much easier said than done. There are a few online retailers that offer shipping to Canada, but the price conversions are much too high. I have found that Amazon.ca has some very good prices and free shipping for Prime members, but only if looking for basic supplements. Because of the free shipping, I keep coming back for my basic supplement staples.
SelectionAs stated above, Amazon.ca offers a very different selection from Amazon.com. If you are looking for basic supplement staples like omegas, multis, green tea, Creatine and beta alanine, then you will not be disappointed with the selection. If however, you are looking for more specific/specialized supplements like pre workouts, sleep formulas and focus formulas, you really will not find much. Most of this is due to the fact that some ingredients in the supps, like yohimbe, dmha, dmaa, just are not sold in Canada, and/or are banned here.
Also, some of the American companies that do have their products listed on the Canadian version of Amazon, have an outrageous price attached to them. An example of this would be Nutrabio's whey protein isolate, unflavored 5lb tub. Looking at it right now, the cost is $245.74. So a lot of the supps that are available are just not affordable.
Layout and Ease of OrderingIn terms of layout, Amazon.ca is what you would expect. It is the same as the .com version. The tabs at the top of he page make it easy for you to find what you are looking for, with an option to search by department. However, just by typing in your search selection, the engine is really good at bringing up the products associated with your search. At the bottom of the page, you will find quick picture links to your recent searches as well as recommendations based on your history, which is helpful.
Ordering is quite simple, especially if you are a prime member. There is a one click option, which can be used with your saved information and credit card payment info. It makes the process very simple. If you are not a member, it is just as simple as I putting your information and you are all set.
