How can I be sure that shopping on-line at this site is safe?
TheSportsDen.ca uses SSL Technology (Secure Sockets Layer) to process credit
card transactions. We use industry standard encryption technologies when
transferring and receiving data that you exchange with our site. This same
industry standard SSL Technology is used by major banks and stock brokerage
firms. This encryption procedure "scrambles" the information you send to us
and makes online transactions extremely safe. Despite what you have heard,
it is not simple to "hack" to intercept your personal information and decode
it. Billions of dollars are spent via the web every day.
How do I know if the page is secured or not?
There are two ways to see the security at work on this site. The first way
to tell if a page is secured is in the address bar. As you will notice some
pages start with the letters http:// - these are non secured pages that are
only showing general information. Secured pages show https:// in the address
bar; these pages are encrypted to provide the utmost in security.
TheSportsDen.ca uses secured pages on any page that requires you to enter
sensitive personal information, ensuring your information is secured. The
second way to know if you are on a secured page is by looking at the top of
your browser. Secured pages will show a lock, letting you know that the web
page you are on is secure.
Do you have a sizing chart?
Yes, we have a SIZING CHART AVAILABLE HERE, all measurements are
approximates and are to be used as guidelines. Items being produced by
different manufactures in different countries will make the garments
fluctuate slightly in size.
How do you ship?
Currently TheSportsDen.ca ships with Canada Post courier service.
Do you ship overseas?
Yes we do ship overseas but, all overseas orders must complete payment by Pay Pal. Credit card payment is not accepted for overseas orders.
Can my "ship to" address be different than my "bill to" address?
Yes, but please be aware that for security purposes your billing address
must match that on file with your credit card company.
What methods of payments are accepted?
All payments are processed using Pay Pal.
What currency will I be charged in?
We are a Canadian company and so by law have to invoice in Canadian funds.
U.S. orders will be billed in Canadian funds, with the purchase price being
converted back to U.S. funds by the credit card company. This amount will
vary depending on the exchange rate of the credit card company.
What about sales tax and duty?
Orders shipped to areas outside of Canada are NOT subject to Canadian tax.
It is the customer's responsibility to pay any customs, duties or taxes for
any goods shipped to an international address. Any shipping charges for
packages returned as a result of a customer's failure to pay customs, duties
and taxes will be billed to that customer.
The amount of tax charged on Canadian orders depends on many factors,
including the destination of the shipment and the type of item purchased.
All items shipped to destinations in Canada are subject to Canadian Goods
and Services Tax ("GST") at 5%. In addition, the following Provincial Sales
Tax ("PST") or Harmonized Sales Tax ("HST") might apply, depending on the
item and the destination of the shipment:
• Nova Scotia: HST at 15% (including GST portion)
• Prince Edward Island: HST at 14% (including GST portion)
• New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Ontario: HST at 13% (including GST
If you purchase an item and have it shipped to a province other than the
ones listed above, you might be required to self-assess PST and remit the
amount in accordance with the applicable law of that province.
When is my credit card charged?
All orders are processed immediately however, we will not charge your credit
card until the order is ready to be shipped (excluding jersey customizing and special orders). We do not believe you should
have to pay ahead of time for a product that is not ready to be delivered.
When will my order ship?
In-stock orders ship on or before the next business day. Please keep in mind that sometimes our suppliers run out and some items may need to be special ordered which may require a delay of a few days or even weeks before we are able to ship. In this case we will e-mail you to let you know and give you an approximate arrival date. We appreciate your patience, and will fill your order as soon as we receive stock. If you prefer not to wait for a delayed item, we will happily cancel your order and refund the full purchase amount on your credit card.
Can I cancel my order?
If the order has not yet shipped, we can change or cancel your order if you
notify us. If it is a special order or a custom jersey and the process has
started on these items then the order can’t be cancelled. Please review your
order carefully during checkout to make sure it is accurate. If you need
assistance feel free to contact us.
Are the items shipped identical to the pictures shown online?
We have made every effort to display products exactly as they will look when you receive them, but in some cases the manufacturer will update their graphics on a particular item and the colour shades and/or graphics may differ slightly to what we have sent you.
What about packages lost in shipping?
Due to the high level of fraud, our shipping policy is once an order leaves our warehouse, the shipper (Canada Post) becomes the responsible party. If your shipment is lost or damaged, we will file all paperwork necessary to start an investigation with the shipping company. We will make every effort to recover your loss for you. A replacement or refund will not be given until the investigation is complete and a claim has been issued and paid.
That has got to be a pricing error or misprint?
We take extra effort to ensure that our pricing and product information is
accurate and up to date, but sometimes errors occur. In the event of an
error in product price, availability, description or other material detail,
TheSportsDen.ca reserves the right to cancel any order placed, limit
quantities or substitute a substantially similar product. Prices are subject
to change without notice and are limited to stock on hand.

Do you mail catalogues?

negative impact on the planet as possible. Most products we sell are
available for review on this website. We do offer more products not listed
on our website at our store, but due to shipping reasons we don’t offer them
on our website. We can keep up to date accuracy on our website, unlike print
catalogues that can be out of date before they are even mailed to customers.
