Canadians! Moroccanoil Launches Innovative E-Commerce

I remember when it was difficult to get your hands on Moroccanoil products in Canada. 
You could either A) get it shipped from USA which resulted in high duty fees or B) Take a trip to Buffalo. 
Beginning July 1, 2013 (Canada Day), customers within Canada can now visit the official website,, and make fully authorized purchases from the entire range of hair and body care products. Designed to attract sales away from unauthorized online vendors, the brand’s e-commerce initiative features an innovative profit-sharing platform that rewards all facets of the distribution channel: whenever a customer purchases a hair care product, they will have the option to select from a list of participating salons that will benefit from a percentage of each sale. If a client chooses not to select a salon during their purchase, the closest Moroccanoil Loyalty Salon to their address will automatically be credited with the sale. The client is also sent a list of five Moroccanoil salons closest to their location along with their order. There are now hundreds of salons in Canada that are part of the Moroccanoil Loyalty Salon Program, which continues to grow rapidly.
As a Canadian, it's amazing to get access to e-comm sites that cater to us.

Beware online shopping!

About a few month ago I was cruising a blog and I found a hair product that really interested me. It was given a rave review from the blogger and I felt like it could possibly work for me. Even though I searched the internet for more reviews I didn't see any. But I did what any other reader would do.. I purchased a jar of this product.

After my transaction, I realized that I didn't get a receipt BUT the money was removed from my account.

Bizarre... but I told myself wait a bit because I really wanted the product. A week with no receipt went by and I sent them an email. I included my name, email, Paypal transaction number and date I purchased. I received NO answer.

I then sent another email inquiring about the product delivery. NO ANSWER.

To make a long story short. I filed a claim to Paypal. Paypal sent me a refund because the company did NOT respond back to Paypal.

They did respond back to me after a month with a sob story about how the website had errors...

I will tell you the product cost $7.99.. petty cash to some but honestly it's the principal.

I didn't write this to cause problems.. I didn't even put the bloggers name or company. I just want you all to pay attention to the online companies that you buy from. If something seems wrong please "speak" up. 

Also always use Paypal if you can!
