Default HST?

whats the current status on HST and buying from etailers? just wanted to know as i'm buying from directcanada/ncix around dec/jan and if the hst is existant then i might as well just go to a store to buy.

i'm from ontario so usually pst is exempted when getting products from BC.

I am in NS (already have HST) and assuming its going to be the same in ON, then you will pay the full HST when ordering out of province. It sucks, but it is what it is. There are never exceptions for paying one tax or the other...its all or nothing.
