Kinek Guide

WHAT’S KINEK SERVICE?

By shipping to one of Kinek's US border KinekPoints, Canadian customers can order from US companies and benefit from the greater selection of products and much lower prices. When your package arrives at one of our border locations, you will receive an email notification and an optional instant text message (SMS) letting you know it is ready to be picked up. You can then drive down at a time convenient for you, pick it up, and bring it back across the border yourself. This lets you save hundreds, and sometimes thousands of dollars on your cross border shopping.

5. Step Five

When the package arrives at one of KinekPoint’s border locations, you will receive an email notification and an optional instant text message (SMS) letting you know it is ready to be picked up. KinekPoint currently requires the following items from customers when they pick-up their order:

         2 pieces of Photo ID: All Canadians require a passport to cross the border so 1 of the ID’s is an official Government issued Canadian Passport. The second piece we request to see is an official Government Driver’s License. The addresses and photos on these two IDs must match.

         Order confirmation from MonoPrice.com: Kinek also requires customers to print off the order confirmation from MonoPrice.com which is compared to the package received. The order confirmation also includes the Billing Address which is compared to the Passport and Driver’s license.
