So in our case where everything goes through customs, am I correct in guessing that the labeling shows a 0 value on everything? Would be okay for Canadian orders but would not be accurate for international nor would the various countries accept this as they would not be paying the duties due. We usually always get the packages back eventually (although can take up to 4 months sometimes). When that happens how do you handle the inventory. It is a very creative work around for Canadian orders. I like the fact as well that the history would be tracked automatically to the customer so you can see later what went on. Not sure but will try it on some international orders as I have two that went missing in Spain and Italy and have to resend.
Still amazed that something that happens in every business Shopify has no valid process for and has people all jumping through hoops to make the system work.
