Why don't I see my membership discount in the cart?

You must be signed in to your account to receive the membership discount in the cart.


How much is this in American dollars?

All orders placed on Altitude-sports.com are in Canadian dollars.

The amount you will be charged in American dollars will depend on your bank and the platform used to pay. For instance, if you pay with a credit card, then it will be the bank’s daily rate, while if you pay with PayPal it will be their rate. For this reason, we cannot tell you exactly how much a product will cost in American dollars.

Note that if a return is made, we will refund the same amount in Canadian Dollars that was originally paid for the item, however in certain rare cases the amount received in your country's currency may differ slightly from the original charge as the exchange will be determined by the daily rate at the time that the return is processed.

What are Altidollars and Expirable Credits?

If you decide to return your purchase, any Altidollars used will be automatically returned to your account for future use.

Expirable Credits can be earned by reviewing your previous purchases, but be careful, these have a marked expiry date! Please note Expirable Credits are single use only and will not be returned to your account should you decide to return your purchase.

    Shipping

    How to check if my order, which is over $49, will be eligible for free standard shipping within Canada?

    To know if your purchase qualifies for free standard shipping, simply add the item(s) to your shopping cart. While viewing the complete contents of your shopping cart, you may ask for a shipping estimate after you enter your country, province, and postal code by clicking “Get a Quote.” A menu entitled “Choose a shipping option” will appear below, indicating the shipping methods available to you, as well as the delivery dates and respective prices of each method. You will then be able to see if your order qualifies for free standard shipping with FedEx and/or Canada Post.

    If the standard method of shipping indicates a fee, this is either due to the remoteness of the delivery address, the dimensions of the order, or the exceptional weight of the order. We work hard to minimize these surcharges by negotiating the best possible prices with the courier companies, and by assuming most of the shipping fees for almost all of these situations. Canada, as we know, is a vast country and so a line must be drawn to render our business viable in the long-term. We appreciate your understanding.


    How to obtain the estimated date of delivery of my order?

    In your cart, click “Proceed to checkout.” In the section called “Shipping Method” you will see the estimated delivery dates of each shipping choice.


    Where can I get my tracking number?

    As soon as your order ships, you will receive confirmation via email, open the email and click the "Track your shipment" icon, this will allow you to follow the progress of your order. Should you require any further assistance, please contact our customer support department by chat, phone or email.


    Which brands can be shipped outside Canada?

    Due to agreements with certain brands, we cannot ship all brands outside of Canada. On each product page you will see an icon indicating to which country the product may be shipped. It can be found under the ‘Add to Cart’ button.

    We will reimburse each item returned at a Y% discount.

    Promotion: Buy for $X amount, or X number of a type of product, and receive Y% discount on the order 

    We will reimburse each item returned, minus the Y% discount.

    Promotion: Use a discount code and get Y% discount on specified products 

    We will reimburse you each product returned, minus the Y% discount if they were part of the specified products.

    Promotion: Purchase for $X amount, or X number of products, or a specific product, and receive another product free. 

    We will reimburse you the products returned on condition that the free item is also returned. If the free product is not returned, we will deduct the cost price of the free item from your reimbursement.

    Promotion: Purchase for $X amount, or X number of products, and receive $Y in discount on your order. Promotions discounting an amount of taxes are treated identically. 

    We will reimburse you each item returned, deducting a percentage of the discounted $Y, proportional to the price of the product in question versus all other products in the order that were affected by the promotion.


    How do reimbursements work if I paid using Altidollars or Expirable Credits?

    If you placed an order using Altidollars and you return that item, your Altidollars will be added back into your account for future use at the moment of reimbursement.
