When Placing an order:
1. Create an account or register as a “guest”
2. Go shopping. (Place your items in your shopping cart)
3. Proceed to checkout
4. Confirm your order, choose your preferred shipping method and method of payment.
PayPal transactions are processed immediately and can be charged to your credit card. Alternatively, credit card transactions can be telephoned in to 403-948-1958 to be securely accepted. Transactions will be completed just before shipping (orders usually shipped within 24 hours)
You will receive confirmation via e-mail that on order has been placed and you may also receive multiple e-mails as your order is going through the various systems and being processed.
Shipping rates are determined after the ordering process has begun and you are ready to checkout. The dimensions and weight of each package are quickly calculated and a list of shipping options will appear. Click on your choice of shipper and confirm to complete your order.
PLEASE NOTE: Postal codes must be entered in UPPERCASE to give proper quotes. Sometimes the shipping rate gets a little crazy and gives out some outrageous amount to ship your order across the street or across town. Not to worry, The Kite Guys will catch these little blips. If there seems to be an extraordinary charge for shipping, we will confirm the actual package dimensions and weight and make an adjustment for you. More often than not, this results in a credit to you. Your credit card order will not be processed until the order is ready to ship.
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for an in-store credit only on the return of those items including GST (if applicable). This credit does not and will not include shipping cost.
We'll pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
You should expect to receive your refund of in-store credit within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive your in-store credit refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 14 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days).
If you need to return an item, contact us via e-mail. All returned items must receive an "item return code" to be accepted. This code number is only available from The Kite Guys. We'll notify you return e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.
We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations.
We use Canada Post and FedEx and UPS exclusively or if you prefer "special delivery" we also offer, for your convenience, another courier of your choice. If you have an account with your own courier service, please provide us with all the necessary account information and we can set you up with this method as well.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are calculated based on length, width and weight. The weight of any such item can usually be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full kilogram/pound.
