I submitted a request to your Customer Service team/Social Media team but haven’t received a reply. How can I get ahold of you?

Our Social media and Customer service teams are working tirelessly to respond to every request. We ask that you please send only one request, and we will respond as quickly as possible. Duplicate requests are unfortunately causing bottle necks that increase response times. The most common questions we’re receiving are answered below. If you have a question pertaining to an open order please, send a message to help@ebgames.ca with your order number and we will treat those requests as a priority.

What are the shipping timeframes for orders made at EBGames.ca right now?

We are taking measures to ensure the safety of our Distribution Centre associates. As a result, order processing timeframes are currently delayed by a few days. Please visit our Shipping Information page up-to-date information on expected delivery times.

↑ Back to questions

When stores re-open, will I be able to pick-up my pre-order?

Absolutely. We will hold your reservation until our stores re-open, and you will receive any applicable pre-order bonus items at that time.

Please note that the item you pre-ordered may not be available in store immediately when our stores re-open, as all new inventory is currently being stored at our Distribution Centre. After stores re-open, we will ship the item you pre-ordered to the store where you made the reservation, and one of our associates will contact you by telephone when your order is ready for pick-up.

If you would like to receive the item you pre-ordered now, please feel free to place a new order at EBGames.ca (where stock is available) and we will ship the item directly to your home with contactless delivery. When our stores re-open, you will have the opportunity to cancel your pre-order, move your pre-order deposit (if applicable) to another product purchase, or cancel your pre-order and receive a refund for your pre-order deposit (if applicable).

↑ Back to questions

How long will I have to collect my in store pickup reservation after the store re-opens?

We typically hold pre-orders for up to 2 days after the release date, and EDGE members have an opportunity to have their pre-order held for up to 5 days after the release date (depending on membership level). Please visit our EDGE page for more information on the Pre-Order Hold Benefit.

Please note that the item you pre-ordered may not be available in store immediately when our stores re-open, as all new inventory is currently being stored at our Distribution Centre. After stores re-open, we will ship the item you pre-ordered to the store where you made the reservation, and one of our associates will contact you by telephone when your order is ready for pick-up.

Given the current circumstances, we are working on options for pre-order pickup extensions when our stores re-open. We will update this page as more information is available.

↑ Back to questions

Is it possible to reclaim the deposit I paid for a product in store?

Your deposit will be held for you indefinitely. When our stores re-open, you will have the ability to apply your deposit to the item you pre-ordered, transfer this deposit to a new pre-order, cancel your pre-order to receive a refund for your deposit, or apply the deposit to a product purchase.

↑ Back to questions

Can my Pick Up At Store reservation be shipped to my home?

Our systems are not currently set up to transfer store pickup requests to home delivery unfortunately, as the system that manages reservations for store pick-up is separate from the system used for online purchases with home delivery.

If you paid a deposit when placing your pre-order for store pickup, when our stores re-open, you will have the ability to apply your deposit to the item you pre-ordered, transfer this deposit to a new purchase, cancel your pre-order to receive a refund for your deposit, or apply the deposit to a product purchase.

↑ Back to questions

Can I request a cancellation for a pre-order I made in store while stores are closed?

Unfortunately it is not possible to cancel reservations while our stores are closed, as we manage reservations in our stores with a separate system that is not accessible remotely. When our stores re-open you will have the ability to cancel your store pick-up pre-order, and will have the ability to receive a refund at that time.

↑ Back to questions

I want to purchase an item that is currently out of stock on your website. How can I purchase it?

We regret to inform you that we're unable to provide estimates on restock dates for all items on our site at this time. We do not currently have a wait list option for our catalogue items, but will add additional stock to our site for purchase as we receive new shipments.

How will I know when my local store re-opens?

As stores re-open across Canada, we will be updating our Store Locator page at ebgames.ca. Please visit this page and search for stores that have re-opened near you.

Am I able to return or exchange a product at my local store once it re-opens?

Yes! We have established procedures in stores to safely manage returns and exchanges. If you made a purchase in store between February 21, 2020 and March 20, 2020, you will have the ability to return the item you purchased for an exchange or refund for a period of 30 days after your local store re-opens. As always, returns and exchanges will need to adhere to our Return Policy.

If you purchased an item at ebgames.ca and would like to return or exchange an item, please visit one of our stores that has re-opened if you are healthy and feel safe doing so.

Yes! We are accepting exchanges for products under warranty that expired while our stores were closed. Exchanges will be granted for a period of 30 days after each store re-opens.

↑ Back to questions

What measures are you taking to protect customers and associates?

Before opening our stores, we performed a deep clean on all surfaces, including payment pin-pads, counters, door handles and doors. In addition, we have marked off our line queue with 6-foot interval markers to ensure social distancing, and are limiting each store’s capacity to a maximum of 5 customers at one time; please note in some provinces, the amount of customers permitted may be lower than 5 due to the number of associates working.

If you are planning a visit to one of our stores that have re-opened, we ask that you avoid physical contact with other customers and our associates, maintaining a distance of 2 meters (6 feet) or more.

↑ Back to questions

Can I transfer my pre-order from a store that is not open to a store that is now open?

This is not possible at this time due to technical limitations unfortunately.

↑ Back to questions

What if I don’t want to go into a store because I feel unsafe, or if I feel I may be a risk to other customers or associates as I am not feeling well? What will happen to my pre-order? Can I still return a product I purchased for a refund or exchange?

If you do not feel safe or feel unwell, please stay home! We will save your pre-order for pickup when you feel comfortable to visit a store and/or it is safe to do so.

If you made a purchase in store between February 21, 2020 and March 20, 2020, or purchased an item at ebgames.ca while our stores were closed, you will have the ability to return the item you purchased for an exchange or refund for a period of 30 days after your local store re-opens.

If you did not pay a deposit for an item you pre-ordered in store, please feel free to place a new order at ebgames.ca, and we will ship the item directly to your home.

↑ Back to questions

Do you offer curbside pick-up?

We are unable to offer curbside pick-up at this time due to technical limitations, but we are working quickly to make this option available. We will post an update on this page once curbside pick-up is available.

While we are not currently able to offer curbside pickup, we are following strict procedures to protect our customers and associates. Please see What measures are you taking to protect customers and associates? above for more information.

↑ Back to questions

How are you managing in store trade-ins during COVID-19?

To ensure the safety of our customers and associates, we are now taking the following steps when processing trades:

1. After arriving at one of our stores with the item(s) you’d like to trade, one of our associates will direct you to our new designated TRADE area
2. The associate assisting you will apply personal protective equipment, and will ask that you place your item(s) in a designated protective TRADE tote bin
3. The associate assisting you will assess your item(s), ensuring they meets our trade-in requirements
4. After completing the assessment of your items, the associate will remove their personal protective equipment, and will issue store credit (if eligible) on our Point of Sale.

Each business day, all items received will remain in the protective TRADE tote bin, and will be disinfected the following morning by a certified associate. This process will happen to all items received prior to resale or refurbishment.

↑ Back to questions

Are you currently accepting cash in store for payments and/or refunds?

Yes! We are now accepting cash payments, and will pay cash for eligible refunds if used for payment during the original transaction. To ensure the safety of our customers and associates, our associates will be using protective gloves when handling cash, and will dispose of the gloves after each transaction.

Pre-ordering products for in-store pickup is fast and easy. First, ensure you’re logged in on ebgames.ca, and simply add eligible pre-orders to your shopping cart using the "Add to Cart" button. In your shopping cart, click on the "Pre-order online & pickup in-store" button to continue. A $5 deposit is required to ensure your product is reserved for you in-store. Please be aware that regular in-stock merchandise are not eligible for pickup in-store.

You’ll need to select an EB Games store where you’ll pickup your order. You can do this by using the map feature at the checkout and searching by city, store address, or postal code. Once your order is placed, you cannot change your selected store. You will receive an order confirmation by email and a call from the store once your product arrives. At that time, you’ll be required to pay the balance of your order at the store.

If you would like to cancel your pre-order, please visit the store that you directed the order to. An associate will be more than glad to assist you with the refund.
