Shipping & Returns



Our shipping options are simple and affordable!  Let us know if additional shipping options are important to you and we will add them as demand dictates.

1. General Information

Minimum online order is $25.00 before shipping and applicable taxes. Only online orders will be accepted.

We ship orders throughout the week with the exception of weekend and holidays. All orders are subject to product availability. Shipping of orders is usually completed within 48 hours. We occasionally will hold an order when out-of-stock items are due in within a week but will advise you of this.

If an item is on backorder or not in stock at the time you place your order, you will be notified via email with an estimated availability date.  If you wish, we will refund you the total amount of your order, using the original method of payment.

You also have the option of waiting for the item to become available, or cancelling it. Our backorder program allows you to purchase items that are currently out of stock, but will be available again. This way, you get to be the first to reserve our best selling items by purchasing them in advance before they arrive. In order to get early access to backorder items and reserve them, we need to take payment for the item at the time the order is placed. This means that all backorder items in your shopping cart will be charged to your account once you checkout. Shipping and taxes will also be charged at this time, so you won’t have to pay any additional fees later on!

Whenever a backorder item is purchased, we will provide you with an estimated shipping date which takes into consideration the time it takes for the item to become available and shipped to us, as well as the time it will take for us to stock the items and process your order. Please be aware that backorder dates are estimates and are subject to change. We do our best to notify you about backorder items whenever an update is available. If your order consists of both in stock and backorder items, we will reserve these items for you and ship your order in full as soon as your backorder item(s) arrives. Depending on the length of the estimated arrival date on your backorder items, your in-stock items may be shipped out to you first.

We know that patience is a virtue… and sometimes, you just change your mind! You can cancel your backorder at anytime, as long as it’s not a custom made or special order item. Simply send an email to info@baitcasters.ca with your order number or log in to My Account to submit a request. Please note that sending in a request does not automatically cancel your order. You will receive a cancellation confirmation email once it has been processed.

2.  Pricing

Prices shown are in Canadian dollars but may be viewed in US dollars by choosing this option in the Currency option. All prices are subject to change without notice. All prices, unless otherwise stated, exclude applicable taxes. All Canadian residents must pay HST (13%) or the applicable sales tax for their province.  All orders shipped outside Canada are tax exempt from Canadian taxes. Please note: If your country requires an import permit or import licence, you are responsible for obtaining them in advance of ordering. We cannot ship to countries which require signed consulate invoices or advance payment of custom duties or tariffs. Tariffs, Duties, Custom Taxes, Excise Taxes, etc.  Payment of all import tariffs, import duties, and import taxes (if applicable to your country) are the responsibility of you, the customer (importer).

4. Delivery Location

Items offered on our website are only available for delivery to addresses in Canada and the US. Any shipments outside of Canada and the US are not available at this time but please feel free to contact us for more information.

Certain remote areas within Canada have limited delivery service and this results in a high shipping cost. We are unable to offer our free shipping specials to these areas but do have competitive rates with Canada Post that you can take advantage of. Once we receive your order we will contact you with the shipping surcharge. We apologize in advance for any delays or inconvenience this may cause.

These exception areas include: Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunvaut. Orders shipping outside of Canada or internationally are not eligible for free shipping.

5. Delivery Time

An estimated delivery time will be provided to you once your order is placed. Delivery times are estimates and commence from the date of shipping, rather than the date of order. Delivery times are to be used as a guide only and are subject to the acceptance and approval of your order. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we make every effort to fulfill your order within the specified shipping timelines. Date of delivery may vary due to carrier shipping practices, delivery location, method of delivery, and the items ordered.
