Q. What is your Express Shipping Guarantee?

Click to view answer
A. If you pay for Express Shipping with your order, we will do everything we can to get your order to you within seven (7) business days*. If it doesn’t reach you within that time, please let us know and we’ll refund you the difference between Express and Standard Shipping.

*A business day is a weekday (Monday through Friday) that is also not a national or provincial statutory holiday. Please note that orders received after business hours start processing on the next business day.

Q. Do you require a signature for the delivery?

Click to view answer
A.  We can if you request it!  Please do request it if you do not have safe options for your mail drop off.  You can request any of the following options for your Canada Post delivery in the Customer Note at checkout:

  • Signature request: The courier will require that you (or someone at your shipping address) sign when accepting the package.
  • Card for pickup: The courier will drop a Delivery Notice Card off at your shipping address, and you then pick it up at the post office
  • Deliver to chosen post office: Your package will be delivered straight to the post office that you designate. Please provide your shipping address and the address of the post office you’ve chosen.
  • Do not safe drop: A delivery attempt will be made and if no one is available to receive the item, a Delivery Card will be left. It will not be safe dropped.
    (Safe dropping means to leave the package in a safe place that is sheltered from weather and cannot be seen by passers-by, such as inside a porch or inside a storm door.)

Note that we will only apply these optional delivery features if requested, as our customers’ preferences differ.

Q. When should I request additional protection for my package?

Click to view answer
A. We strongly suggest that you request a signature required and/ or have the package delivered to the nearest post office if you don’t have a safe mail box or mail facility.

Please do note that ContactsForLess is not responsible for inadequate mail delivery options and is not liable for packages lost or stolen after delivery. If a package is stolen after delivery* due to the customer not having a safe and secure mail box or mail facility, ContactsForLess will not replace the shipment or refund the payment.

*A delivery is judged complete once Canada Post has marked the item delivered.

Q. Where’s my package tracking number?

Click to view answer
A. Once your package is shipped, you will receive an email with your tracking number on it. You’ll then be able to check on the status of your package and see the estimated date when it will arrive.  Please check your Junk folder as well.

Q. Gasp! My package is missing!

Click to view answer
A. Oh, no!

If your package is showing as not yet delivered in the Canada Post tracking status, it could still be on its way. Deliveries can be delayed due to the weather, road conditions, or even statutory holidays.

If your Canada Post tracking status says your package has been delivered but you did not receive it:

  • Please wait an extra 24 hours. This is because Canada Post’s system sometimes marks it delivered early.
  • Please check your community locker, or possible safe drop areas such as your back porch.
  • You can also call Canada Post at 1 (416) 979-3033 to inquire if you’re not sure.

Can’t find your package where Canada Post says they left it?

Email us at contact@contactsforless.ca (or simply reply to any of your emails from orders@contactsforless.ca) and let us know your order number and the issue.* We’ll coordinate with Canada Post and do our best to get you your package as soon as possible!

*Please report missing or stolen packages to us within 60 days.  We will always do everything we can to assist you. Any failures to deliver result in an investigation being filed with Canada Post and can take at least 20 days before a resolution is determined. 

Canada Post will contact you during the course of the investigation to confirm some basic information as the receiver of the package.  Please note that the investigation must be completed successfully (with your cooperation) in order for us to reach a resolution with your case.

Please do note that ContactsForLess is not responsible for inadequate mail delivery options and is not liable for packages lost or stolen after delivery. If a package is stolen after delivery* due to the customer not having a safe and secure mail box or mail facility, ContactsForLess will not replace the shipment or refund the payment.  For this reason, please request a signature or even have it delivered to your post office if you do not have a secure mailbox.

*A delivery is judged complete once Canada Post has marked the item delivered.
