What do the Camera Canada Stock shipping icons mean?

Regular Shipping
Regular shipping rates apply to products with this icon. This means that the product fits into a “normal” shipping box and is within the dimensional and weight guidelines set out by Canada Post.

Oversized Shipping
Products that are either heavier or larger than “regular” items are deemed oversized. This includes heavy items such as some tripods, inkjet paper, dye-sub paper, some lighting kits and printers to name a few. Canada Post charges weight and dimensional surcharges that apply to items in excess of their guidelines.

Special Shipping Rates Apply
Items that are very large, very heavy or very delicate will be given special shipping rates depending on the shipping destination. These items may include selected printers, lighting kits, etc. that are simply too big or heavy to be shipped using the oversized rates.

No Shipping Cost.
Items that are very small or light may be deemed to have NO shipping. Gift certificates fall into this category.

No Shipping Cost.
For selected products Camera Canada may have promotions that include free shipping. While free shipping applies to a particular item, if the item is combined with other products, free shipping may not apply.

NOTE: Generally speaking, Camera Canada chooses a shipping rate based on the heaviest product being shipped even if there are lighter products in the cart. For example, if the Camera Canada order includes 1 camera, 1 gift card, 1 filter and 1 tripod, the shipping rate is based on the tripod (the heaviest product) even though the gift card shows free shipping and the camera shows regular shipping.
