Since all window treatments from Blinds.ca are custom made to your specifications, all orders are
paid for when your order is placed. Visa, Mastercard and American Express are accepted online. Cashier's
cheques, personal cheques and money orders must be mailed to our office before your order is started.
All orders paid by cheque will require a holding period of 5-7 days for your cheque to clear before the
order will be put into production.
Changes, Cancellations and Refunds:
Because our products are custom made to your exact specifications, they are not suitable for resale
in the ordinary course of business. Therefore, it is important that you are sure of your purchase
decisions prior to finalizing your order. We place your order with the manufacturer and automatically
charge your credit card for the total sale price, including shipping, immediately after you complete
your online order. Unless there is a delay in placing your order because we need additional information
from you, an order received from you for in stock materials before 4 P.M. Eastern Standard Time will
normally begin production the morning of the next day.
Cancellations and Changes in orders can only be made for a period of 12 hours after your online order
is finalized. All cancellations and changes effected during this 12 hour period will be subject to a manufacturer's
restocking charge, where applicable, and a Blinds.ca 6% administrative charge. In the event that you
cancel your order during this 12 hour period, Blinds.ca will refund your money minus the manufacturer's
restocking charge, where applicable, and the Blinds.ca 6% administrative charge. Under no
circumstance will Blinds.ca either refund any money or issue any credits for a credit card purchase if
the cancellation or change occurs at any time beyond this 12 hour period.
On extremely rare occasions there may be delays caused by out-of-stock materials, shipping delays,
temporary factory overload, holidays, or other factors beyond the control of Blinds.ca and its
associates. In the event of a known delay, when the manufacturer contacts us you will be contacted that
day. Blinds.ca reserves the right to reject any order, at its discretion.
Discontinued and/or Back Ordered Items:
Blinds.ca has no control over products that are discontinued or placed on backorder by the various
manufacturers. Blinds.ca will make every effort to remove discontinued items as soon as we are made
aware of them and will notify you whenever we receive notice of any backorders. Also see
"Delivery Times" noted below.

What is Order Processing?
Due to an increase in our processing costs (e.g. credit card fees, package handling, etc.) we had to regrettably institute a price adjustment for
processing and handling orders. Our flat rate is now $4.95 per order, which represents only a fraction of our actual handling costs. We also do not
charge for shipping, which costs us considerably more than the $4.95. We appreciate your business. Please be assured that we will always strive to
bring you the lowest blinds prices, with superior quality and service.
Sales tax is automatically calculated for your province upon checkout.

Do I Need to Buy Hardware or Screws?
All hardware is provided with the possible exception of screws. This is due to the fact that
differing screws are needed in differing applications. In most applications a #6 x 1 1/2" screw is
appropriate. However, the exact length and type of screw will vary depending on whether you are mounting
your treatments into drywall, wood, concrete or metal. As a result many companies do not send mounting
screws with your order. If you find no screws came with your order you will need to purchase some. As a
rule of thumb you can assume two screws per bracket and 2 or 3 brackets per treatment.
