Shipping and Returns Policy

Placing an order with CatholicShop means you agree to our terms/conditions/policies. 

DELIVERY 

You can expect most items to ship within two weeks. However, out-of-stock items, special orders and orders imported from suppliers in the US or overseas may take 6 – 8 weeks (possibly longer). We will notify you of the approximate delivery date.  

While couriers make every effort to ship orders in a timely fashion, we do not guarantee delivery dates.  Due to the worldwide pandemic, courier companies are not guaranteeing delivery dates therefore nor can we. 

We ship via Canada Post courier or Canpar. We offer both options because depending on your location either company may not deliver in your area.  So the difference in price does not relate to shipping time.  Both couriers ship within a similar timeframe.  

It is the right for CatholicShop to ship via either courier company we offer.  While your payment for shipping will reflect your choice at checkout WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WE WILL USE THE CARRIER OF YOUR CHOICE.

Delivery times are estimates.  CatholicShop does not guarantee delivery within a specifified timeframe and will not refund shipping fees if or when deliveries are delayed.  

Should you not be home or your company or religious organization be closed during delivery hours the carrier may leave your parcel for you or leave a ticket advising you that your package may be picked up at their nearest depot. 

CatholicShop will not be responsible for non-retrieved parcels. 

In the event a package is returned to CatholicShop because it was not picked up within the alloted timeframe we will be happy to reship it to you with additional shipping fees.  A shipping fee is charged to CatholicShop by the carrier to have the package returned to CatholicShop for which the customer is responsible. 

If you chose not to have the package reshipped then the contents will be refunded with a restocking fee determined by the manufacturer or publisher unless product was a special order and deemed non-refundable or non-returnable in which case product will not be refunded.  In addition the pre-paid shipping fee to send the package originally then the shipping fee to return the package to CatholicShop will not be refunded.
