When giving your card number, please be sure you supply all of the digits in the number as they appear on the card and also the expiry date.

Great Hobbies no longer ships parcels COD. All orders must be prepaid by the previous methods discussed.


Orders which are mailed in may include prepayment in the form of money order or cheque. Please note that if the cheque is not certified, there may be a three week delay in processing your order to allow for the cheque to clear. Customers whose cheques are returned to us because of insufficient funds (NSF) will be charged $40.00 processing in addition to the amount of the cheque.

Please be sure your prepayment is sufficient to cover the entire cost of the order including merchandise, shipping charges and all applicable taxes. If your payment is short, your order may be returned with an accurate quote of the cost involved or we may only send a partial shipment to the value of the amount tendered. We will attempt to reach you by phone should we run into such a problem. Please be sure your phone number is included with the order. Again, please be advised that our prices may change over a period of time and we will only sell product at the price current at the time of receipt of the order.

At your request, we will issue a refund cheque for any outstanding credit on your account generated by an overpayment by cheque or money order. If your order was paid by credit card and, for whatever reason, a credit is due to you, the reimbursement will be applied to the credit card. Due to processing costs involved, we ask that you do not request a refund for any amount under $5.00. Any such credits will remain on your account and may be used towards a future purchase.
