The billing address is the registered address that your credit card company holds. You can choose to have your order shipped to the same address or provide a different address for delivery.

How do I remove an item from my cart?

You can remove a selected item at any time from your cart before you make a payment. To remove an item, click on the "x" against each item that you have added to your cart on the Shopping Cart page.

How long will items remain in my cart?

If you delete the cookies in your browser then the item will be removed from the cart. Cookie lifespan will depend on your browser settings. If you are logged into the Canon Shop the item will remain in your cart up to 6 months

Why am I unable to find products on the Canon Shop?

The Canon Shop will close by 30 September 2020 as Canon shifts its focus to support local retailers in bringing the best value to consumers. Should you like to purchase an item not listed on the Canon Store, please contact the team via and we will provide a local retailer who does stock the item for you.

Why can't I find my item?

When you're searching for an item on the Canon Shop, you may occasionally find that your search does not return any results. This may be to a number of reasons, we suggest you check your spelling or the wording as we may not recognise spaces etc; and to check our website for all current products (as the one you want may no longer be available or we may not offer it on the Shop).

Payment & Security
What are the payment methods available?

The Canon Shop is able to accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and PayPal.

Can I change my payment method?

No, once the order has been submitted we are unable to amend the payment method.

Are my credit card details secure?

Our site uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) industry standard - the highest level of security available today for web-secured applications. SSL relies on a pair of public and private key technologies provided by VeriSign, Inc. and is based on a 40-bit encryption algorithm developed by RSA Data Security, Inc. Canon does not collect or store any credit card information when we are accepting your order. Canon uses Cybersource payment gateway to process and store credit card information. Cybersource is fully PCI compliant to level 5. To see the Cybersource terms and PCI compliance, please visit :

When will my credit card be charged?

Canon receives authorisation to charge your account prior to shipping your item(s) therefore your card will be charged once you have confirmed your order.

Will my Canon purchase attract additional financial institution fees?

Canon does not charge financial institution fees to our customers. We encourage customers to check with their card issuing financial institution for any additional service charges or fees that may apply.

Can I change my billing address?

Your billing address is the registered address that your credit card company holds. Please ensure that your billing address is correct at the time of placing your order. Once your order has been accepted by Canon, your billing address cannot be changed.

If I am travelling, how do I get my GST refund?
Why was my credit card payment not processed?

Your credit card company may have declined authorisation to debit your card due to a number of reasons. We suggest you contact your card issuing financial institution or check the "Troubleshooting credit card payment errors FAQ" below for more information.

Troubleshooting credit card payment errors - checklist

Double check the card type (for example, American Express), the account number and expiration date.
Remove any dashes or spaces from the account number.
Is your card new or recently reissued?
- Call the financial institution to make sure it has been activated.
- Is it possible you have exceeded your daily spending limit for your card?
- Most debit and credit cards have daily spending limits that may substantially delay the processing of an order — even if there is enough money in an account. When using a debit card, funds are immediately reserved in your bank account at the time you place your order. Please consult your card-issuing financial institution for information about your daily spending limits if you are having trouble placing your order.
Have you checked if you have sufficient available credit for the purchase amount?
- Check with your financial institution.
Do you require authorization to proceed with the purchase?
- Check with your financial institution.
Does your billing address match the address details with your card issuing financial institution?
- To prevent any unnecessary delays processing your order, please ensure that the billing address on your order matches the information on your credit card account. If you have recently moved or are unsure whether you receive your credit card statement at your work or home address, please contact your card-issuing financial institution using the number on the back of your credit card to confirm.
Did you use the correct security code?
- The card security code is a unique three or four digit number printed on the front (American Express) or back (Visa/MasterCard) of your card, in addition to the account number.
