We go to great lengths to make sure that all our advertising is accurate, but we're not perfect. Given the many products we sell and the frequent price changes, it is possible that a price, description or other typographical error may occur.
As soon as a mistake is noticed we'll correct it and will notify customers who are affected. We reserve the right not to accept orders with prices or product descriptions based upon typographical errors. If an online order has already been processed at the incorrect price (payment processing is automated to expedite the order process), we will refund the order and give the customer the opportunity to re-order at the corrected price.
We cannot guarantee the availability of services or products as may occur due to unforeseen events and time delays.

After you complete the order process, your order will be sent for processing and final acceptance by Kerrisdale Cameras.
You’ll receive an “order confirmation” by email confirming that your order has been received. Payment for orders being shipped will be automatically processed by NUVEI payment services.
All orders are subject to final verification by us for availability and prices before processing and shipping. If there is any problem with your order, we will contact you by phone and/or email. If payment was already processed by NUVEI but the order can’t be accepted, a refund will be issued by our Accounting dept on the next business day. These payments are processed prior to price and availability verification in order to expedite the order and reduce delays that may be incurred by payment approval.
You will receive further email notifications to update your order status and keep you informed.
Please e-mail email@example.com or call 1-866-310-3245 as soon as possible. If your order has already been shipped, we cannot cancel it. Please review our Return Policy for returning.
Online orders will receive an “Order Confirmation” which confirms that we have received your order. The order is then subject to verification which includes prices, availability, and confirmation that online payment received (if applicable) before the order is accepted and approved for processing.
Orders are not binding until accepted by Kerrisdale Cameras Ltd. We reserve the right to reject your order for any reason, including an error in the price or product displayed on the website or an advertisement.
Prices advertised do not include shipping and handling or applicable sales taxes. Prices are in Canadian dollars.
Many sale prices include savings through a manufacturer’s ‘instant rebate’ and the end date will appear on the product’s webpage. These indicate the final date that an item can be purchased, including the date to pick up and pay for an ‘order online, pick-up in store’ order. Please ensure you allow adequate time to place the order and pick up in store prior to the promotion end date because our manufacturer won’t honour the discount on invoices processed late.
Customers are responsible for claiming mail-in rebates direct from manufacturers.
Website orders are subject to availability. Unless otherwise indicated, items on our website should be in stock. However, availability can change quickly and our website won’t reflect up to the minute stock availability. Receipt of your order does not guarantee that we can supply the selected products to you immediately. In the case that we are unable to ship as anticipated, we will notify you and ask if you still wish to proceed with the order.
Most products are available in all stores. However, since we carry thousands and thousands of photographic products, some specialty products are not available in all stores and some stores may have limited stock. Our best selection is at the Vancouver store. We would be pleased to transfer an item to another store that is more convenient to you…usually within one business day. Please feel free to contact us before visiting one of our stores if you wish to verify that an item is in stock. Check our store locations and hours page for our phone #s and e-mail addresses.
You will be notified by us as soon as possible if we are unable to accept and fulfill an order due to pricing, availability, delivery concerns or other reasons and we’ll ask if you still wish to proceed with the order. And, if applicable, credit will be processed to your credit card if the payment through NUVEI has already been processed.
ONLINE ORDERS, SHIP TO CUSTOMER: Secure online payment with your favourite credit card. Payment will be processed at time of order.
ONLINE ORDERS, FREE PICKUP IN STORE: Pay in store using Canadian or American currency, debit or the following credit cards:
IN-STORE SHOPPING: We accept Canadian or American currency, debit or the credit cards listed above.
Convenient, fast,and no delivery charges. Pay in store when picking up your order.
For shipping status, please email us. Or contact your store directly.
If you will be picking up your order at one of our stores, please wait for an email confirmation saying your order is ready for pickup. Most items will be ready for pick up within a couple of hours of your order, during regular business hours. Some items may need to be shipped from our Vancouver store or another store and may take up to a couple of business days. Orders will then be held for up to 48 hours.
Important Pricing information for Pick-Up-in-Store orders: Payment will be processed in store when the order is picked up. Our website shows today’s prices. Your final prices will reflect the prices and deals active at the time of pick up.
If the prices shown here are time-sensitive: we can not guarantee these sale prices if the order is picked up more than 24 hours after the sale price expires. The reason is that many deals are the result of ‘instant rebates’ offered by the manufacturers/suppliers for us to pass along to you, and they will not accept our claims after the promotion’s expiry date. Expiry dates are indicated on the website’s product pages.

We strive to provide the best value to our customers. We monitor local prices as best as we can and update our prices regularly.
In the event that you find a better price locally, we will match the advertised price provided that:
The item being priced match must:
If our price includes a bonus promotional offer, we may match a competitor’s price but exclude our bonus item.
We will not match prices that are the result of:
Therefore, some "Boxing Week" or "Black Friday" specials may not qualify, but please notify us of their advertised price and we will try to match it.
We strive to provide the best value to our customers by providing the best possible competitive price at the time you make your purchase. If you find a lower advertised price or if our own price drops within 14 days of your purchase then we'll refund the difference.
If our own price is reduced within 14 days of your purchase, bring in your original receipt within 14 days and we'll refund the difference. Amounts under $10.00 will be refunded using the original method of payment. Gift cards will be issued for amounts over $10.00.
If you find a lower locally advertised price within 14 days of your purchase, bring in the advertisement along with your original receipt within 14 days and
we'll refund the difference. Amounts under $10.00 will be refunded using the original method of payment. Gift cards will be issued for amounts over $10.00.
The competitor's advertised item must be identical product, new (not demo or refurbished models), include the same accessories (i.e. batteries,case), and the same manufacturer's Canadian warranty. The competitor must be a local retail store who is an authorized dealer that is currently stocking the advertised item.
Price protection does not apply to advertising errors, rebates, mail-in offers, coupons, free or bonus offers, limited quantity offers, limited time offers, close-outs and liquidations, demo or refurbished models, Boxing week sales, or Black Friday promotions or where free or bonus offers were included with the original sale.
If the lower price is time-sensitive, such as a manufacturer’s instant rebate, we must be able to process the refund prior to the rebate’s end date.
We endeavor to always offer competitive prices so our own prices may drop temporarily for an advertisement, promotion or to match competitor's prices.
The digital photography marketplace is rapidly changing, unlike the traditional film market. Products are regularly being upgraded so prices on current models may dip as new models (usually more expensive with different features) may soon be introduced. Other factors that influence manufacturer's costs to us can be manufacturing costs, the value of the Canadian dollar, or to gain a competitive edge. Typically these price changes will be relatively small. If our suppliers notify us that they are reducing their costs to us then we pass along these savings to our customers. Our retail prices will be reduced the same day and prices on our website are normally updated within 24 hours
Please note that refunds may be delayed if the request is received outside of regular business hours as we may need to be able to confirm the price information, particularly for larger discount amounts or percentages. We'll do our best to handle your request as quickly as possible. Phone inquiries welcome.
Interested in an item that we don't normally have in stock? There are many wonderful lenses, photo accessories, binoculars and other products that may fit your specific needs but, aren't normally carried by most photo retailers. We can special order most products for you from our large selection of suppliers. Delivery time will depend on these items arriving from the manufacturer/supplier and then shipped to you.
Please note that non-stocked special order items are often difficult to re-sell and our supplier's policies don't enable us to return these products. Therefore, we require a 25% NON-refundable deposit (usually a minimum of $50). Furthermore, these items can not be returned nor exchanged. This is similar to other retailer's policies for special orders. We'll do our best to help you decide if a special order item will be the best product for your needs before placing an order.
In the very rare situation where our supplier changes prices prior to shipment, you will be notified and given the option to continue with the order or refund of any pre-paid deposit.
Some new or ‘hot’ products may be in limited supply and high demand. This may require a deposit to hold the item for you. If you place an online order for one of these items to pick up in store, we may contact you to request a deposit. Customers with deposits will be given priority over other customers.
Under the current laws and regulations of each province, we will charge the applicable environmental Recycling levy according to the province where the merchandise is being shipped.
B.C. fees (GST/PST will be charged on the fee)
Other provinces (GST/HST will be charged on the fee)

We want you to get the best photo quality.
We maintain our equipment to the highest industry standards and we will produce products of the best quality possible. The best prints will result from high resolution images, large file size, good lighting, clean lenses and well composed photos. Images on camera and computer monitors may appear brighter and sharper than they appear on a print. If you’re unsure then please ask us for assistance. Photos from Facebook, twitter or email sources may not produce the best prints due to their small file size. Photos from a cell phone may also not produce the best prints in part due to their unprotected lens. Select your prints carefully. Due to the self-serve nature of online orders, our associates can not ensure that only high quality images are selected and colour-corrected. Therefore, returns will only be accepted in situations where the item is defective due to our equipment’s failure or photolab error.
Please note that this policy is for purchases made on-line only. The in-store policy may be different (refer to Returns & Exchanges for in-store purchases).
Please contact us by phone ( 604-263-3221 or 866-310-3245) or email prior to returning merchandise back to us. Please have your purchase receipt handy when calling.
