What is your payment policy?
If a coupon or discount has been missed from an order, we must be notified within 72 hours of the order being placed to add or adjust the balance. Both the currency and tax for an order is based on the Shipping address, if an order is shipping to Canada the card will be billed in CAD with provincial taxes even if the billing address is in the USA. Please note that there may be additional administrative, exchange or transaction fees charged by your credit card provider as we are a Canadian company.  To further inquire about this, please review the terms and conditions with your credit card provider. Your credit card will be automatically charged for outstanding payment, including but not limited to overdue invoices and fees for additional services. Once a transaction has been completed, if the customer asks to change the credit card information or charge amount outside of 24 hours there is a 3% transaction fee reduced from the refund. Please note that for all orders, including pre-orders awaiting back ordered items and custom orders the full payment will be charged upon placement of the order.  We do not accept cheques with a billing address outside of the US or Canada.
 
What type of cards do you accept?
We accept Visa, MasterCard and AMEX
 
 
Why has my payment failed?
Payment can be declined for a variety of reasons. The first thing to do is to check that we accept your card type. Next, make sure your card details are correct and your billing address is the one assigned to your card. If it still isn’t working, we recommend you give your bank a call and let them know you are making a online purchase.  This type of issue can usually be attributed to your credit card company not recognizing our company.  We are based in Canada and therefore the transaction is flagged as a suspicious foreign transaction.  Once you have spoken with your card provider you can give us a call back or send us an email to authorize us to submit the charge again. We can only accept payments from credit cards which have a US or Canadian Billing address.
