Can you tell me a shipping rate for my order?
Your shipping rate is calculated at checkout, just put your country and postal code into the box and click “Estimate Shipping”.

We do not currently offer same-day or next-day delivery, but we hope to in the near future.

Check your billing and shipping information.

This information includes cardholder’s name as it appears on the card, billing address, credit card number, expiration date, and CVC code.
What do I do if I never received my order?
There are a few options here:
1. You got an order confirmation, but never got a shipping confirmation.
- In this case, your order has not yet shipped. We will contact you when it does!
2. You never got an order confirmation. (And I checked my junk e-mails for it!)
- In this case, it is possible that your order was never put through. Please check your Account under My Orders to see if it is there, and if you didn't create an account, contact us at [email protected]
3. You got an order confirmation and a shipping confirmation, and the tracking of your shipment says it was delivered.
- Oh no! It looks like there was an issue with your shipment. Please ask your neighbours if they got your package, check under and around your front door. If all that yields no results, contact us at [email protected]
What about if I received a defective item in my order?
Please contact us as soon as you open the box and notice a problem! Send us pictures of the defect to [email protected], and we will guide you from there.
Why was my order cancelled?
We sometimes have to cancel an order because it is identified as being fraudulent. We also reserve the right to cancel any order that violates our terms and conditions, including shipping certain items outside of Canada. In any case, please contact us for us to guide you through the next steps.
Can I split my current order so the items ship separately? Can I combine multiple orders?
We do not currently offer the option to split/combine orders. If you do make multiple orders going to the same shipping address, our Warehouse Department may package them together.
Is my Maison Lipari purchase covered under a warranty?
We do not have a warranty in place currently, but some of our suppliers do. Feel free to contact us if you have trouble finding the warranty associated to your item!

Please contact us as soon as you open the box and notice a problem! Send us pictures of the item to [email protected], and we will guide you from there.

We occasionally require additional information if a placed order shows a potential risk of fraudulent activity. We reserve the right to cancel and refund any orders which we think may carry a high risk of fraud and have not been placed by the cardholder.
How do I make an order?
You can make an order by visiting our website and adding items to your cart. When you are ready to place your order, click the cart on the top right of your screen. Then, select "Checkout" and proceed with the steps outlined.

Do you offer a student or teacher discount?
We do not currently offer a specific discount to students or teachers, but we do have "Back To School" sales that everyone can take advantage of!
Do you price match?
We can price match from time to time, presuming that we get permission from our vendor to do so.
To proceed with a price match, please send the URL and a photo of the website (showing the product you would like to price match and the price listed) to [email protected] Our customer service team will help you with the rest!
I recently placed an order before your sale, will you honour sale prices?
We unfortunately cannot honour sales for orders made outside the sale period, as we get permission from our vendors to decrease prices when we have sales.
How can I get a discount code?
We send discount codes to our newsletter subscribers and post them on our social media accounts! Following those and subscribing to our newsletter are the only ways to get accurate coupon codes from us.
Why are some products not discounted in my cart?
The products that are not discounted are likely not part of the sale or not included in the promotion that involves a coupon code.
Why isn't my code working?
There are a few reasons why this might be happening!
Some items are not eligible for discounts. Some of our discount codes cannot be combined with each other. If an item is on sale, it is possible that it is not eligible for an additional discount. It is also possible that the code has expired. If none of these apply to the situation, please reach out to us to get that corrected!
How do I see that a promo discount has been applied?
After any promos or coupon codes have been applied, in your own cart, next to each item you will see an "Item price", a "Discount" price and a "Subtotal" price. The amount in the "Discount" column will indicate how much was taken off the original price due to your promo discount, and your "Subtotal" will reflect that discount.
Do I need an account to make an order?
No, you can make an order on our website and checkout as a guest.
I forgot the password to my account. What do I do?
If you have forgotten your password, simply click on the 'Forgot your password?" link at the bottom of the login page, input your email in the space provided and we will send you a link to reset your password.
How do I access my account?

What payment methods can I use?
We accept Visa and Mastercard.
When will you charge me for my purchase?
We charge you when your order is placed. Please only click the “Place Order” button once to avoid multiple transactions.
I just placed my order and see a charge on my bank account under "Authorized". Why is that?
That is an “Authorization”. This is a practice that most banks use to make sure you have the funds to pay for your purchase and to verify account authenticity. Depending on your banking institution, this normally clears within 2-3 days, and either disappears or moves into the charged amounts.
How do I sign up to the Maison Lipari newsletter?
On the bottom of every page on our website, there is a "Join the Lipari Family" box where you can type in your e-mail. When you do so, you will have to confirm your e-mail to begin receiving newsletters from us.
Why should I sign up to the newsletter?
Our newsletters are awesome! Not only do we announce all of our new products and brands on them, we offer discount codes, advice, and seasonal updates on the store. We also try to include a nice picture with an inspirational quote to use as your phone background every few months!
Why do your emails always end up in my Junk folder and how do I fix it?
Depending on your e-mail provider, our e-mails may unfortunately end up in your Junk folder. To get us out of there, you can click "Not Junk", usually at the top of the e-mail. That should do it!
How can I unsubscribe from e-mails?
On every newsletter we send out, there is an "Unsubscribe" button on the bottom. If you click that, it will unsubscribe you! And if you're having any additional problems, please feel free to contact us.

How do I use my Contribution Registry balance on the new e-boutique?
Do I need to make an appointment to meet with a member of the Registry staff?

No. Our in-store selection is very different from our online selection. Even from store to store, the selection can be quite different!
Do you carry replacement parts for products?
We do not carry them, but we can inquire about getting them from our supplier. We do not do any repairs, and it is sometimes faster for the client to go straight to the supplying company.
