Shipping

    We ship your order from our 20,000 sqf warehouse in Calgary, Canada. Our warehouse team works closely with our front office, and we are all dedicated to accuracy, efficiency and quality packaging. We don't use 3PL companies to send your order, as we want to give you the best possible experience when shipping your sweet coffee gear. 

    As soon as your order has shipped, you will receive tracking information via email from us (unless an untracked shipping method was selected at checkout). Once your order has been shipped, please feel free to contact the shipping carrier directly for any delivery related updates.

    We aim to ship same or next business day, depending on the time of day you place your order, but may have a delay during peak holiday seasons.

    Shipping Costs

    Orders over $75 (before taxes) within Canada qualify for free standard shipping. For all orders within Canada under $75, we charge a flat rate of $10.

    Orders over $100 to the Continental USA ship free (standard shipping). Orders to other countries are charged the actual shipping cost to that area. 

    We mostly use UPS, and Canada Post when needed. 

    *Please note: areas that are hard to access by shipping carriers may not qualify for free shipping 

    Express Shipping

    Whenever possible, we prioritize orders with express shipping. That being said, we print our last batch of orders at 11pm MST, so if you're placing an order with express shipping between 11-3:30pm, please give us a call at 403-457-9844, and we'll do our best to make sure it ships out the same day.

    Packaging

    We could buy a new box for every order and pass the cost on to you... but we prefer to reuse packaging that has been sent to us - not only to keep your price down, but because it's just better for the environment. If your package comes with bubble-wrap, it's second hand. If you have packing peanuts in your box, they're made of vegetable starch, not styrofoam! Run them under water and watch them disappear (trust us, it's a fun party trick). When we do need to use brand new packaging, we try to find the most eco-friendly products available.  

    Pre-Orders

    We don't want you to have to wait for all the fun gear that you've ordered just because one of the items is a pre-order, so please purchase pre-orders separately or your entire order will be held for shipping until the pre-order product arrives at our warehouse.

    Import and Duties

    If, like us, you've ever ordered online from a US company, you'll know that it's a gamble whether or not you'll be charged at the border with duties, taxes, and high brokerage fees (sometimes more than the value of the item!). Shipping costs are often higher, and sometimes your warranties aren't even valid in Canada. And that's all if you've managed to get to the final checkout page without finding a "State" field that only lists 50 options.

    We've taken care of all the Canadian duties and taxes for you - and no nasty "extra charges" surprise when your package is delivered. The personal exemption into Canada from other countries is only $20, so if you order anything online from outside of Canada, your purchase is likely to be taxed upon delivery.

    For our US and international customers, you may be billed by your government for import fees based on your countries import guidelines when your order crosses into your country. The personal exemption amount into the United States is $800, so if your order is valued less than this, you will not be taxed upon delivery. Your warranty and support is valid with us no matter where in the world you are. 

    Don't see shipping to your area, need a different shipping method, or want to use your own shipping account?

    Send us an email! We'll help you work out the best possible shipping option for what you need. 

    **Eight Ounce is not responsible for any applicable import fees associated to orders within the US.**

    Within Canada:

    Alberta - 1-2 business days

    BC/Saskatchewan - 1-3 business days

    Manitoba - 2-4 business days

    Ontario + Eastern Canada - 5 business days

    This is our most affordable option within Canada, and is usually the method we’ll use when you select “Standard Shipping (Order less than $75)” or “Free Shipping Orders Over $75”. You will receive tracking with your guaranteed delivery date included with your shipping confirmation.

    UPS Next Day Air Saver

    1 business day

    If you need to guarantee that your package will be delivered in less time than the standard option allows, this method will likely be your best friend! It has a guaranteed delivery time of one business day, and is usually the most affordable express shipping option (with a couple of exceptions, see Canada Post XpressPost).

    Canada Post Xpresspost

    1-4 business days

    There’s a few locations where UPS isn’t able to deliver to (the Territories or P.O. Boxes) or where it becomes very expensive (rural Quebec). If you are in one of these locations and you need an express option, this is the one you’ll want to select.
