Online Ordering

You can now pick up your online order at your local Simply Computing location! If the product you are ordering is available in a Simply Computing near you, you will have the option to pick your order up in-store. If you select this option, you will need to provide a piece of government-issued photo ID and your confirmation number.

If your local Simply Computing is out of stock of the product you ordered, in-store pick-up will be unavailable but you can contact them to ask if they can order the product for you.

If you want to purchase a Pre-Owned device from our clearance list, please visit our partner website Computer Clearance Centre here. Our clearance page is updated twice a week, so if you do not see the device you want to purchase on Computer Clearance Centre, the unit may already have been sold.

If you see on a product page the status is Special Order or Backorder instead of In Stock, that means the product isn’t available for immediate shipping. However, you are still able to place an order for the product and once it becomes available, we will ship it to you!

Special orders and backorders usually take between two to four weeks to arrive at our Vancouver warehouse once we receive your order. Please contact us if you would like to get a more precise delivery estimate on the specific product you are interested in.

If you wish to purchase or finance a custom built Mac, please email us at onlinesales at with the specifications you want, and we will send you a quote. Once you have reviewed the terms and conditions and paid in full (or have been approved for financing), we will order your custom Mac from Apple. Delivery usually takes about three to four weeks from the date of ordering, and is subject to delays if there are supply constraints (especially during a new product launch).

Route+ is premium package protection for your online orders. When you add Route+ at checkout, you can easily insure your order, and file claims for lost, stolen or damaged packages in the unfortunate case that they arise. Most claims are processed within 24 hours.

Route+ premiums may decrease or increase depending on seasonality, industry, or loss rate.

Due to manufacturers’ restrictions, we can only ship to Canadian addresses.

If the postal code you have provided during checkout does not match with the information that your credit card issuer has on file, you will not be able to complete your order. You must contact your credit card issuer to confirm the billing address and postal code associated with your credit card.

When you enter your credit card information, a pre-authorization is placed on your card. If you have a pre-authorization, no money has exchanged hands. The pre-authorization is there for when you complete your order. If you decide to not continue with the order, the pre-authorization will be removed within seven to ten business days.

We strive to fulfill your order within one business day. Once it has been fulfilled, we will ship it with UPS (sometimes we use Canada Post for remote addresses) and you will receive an email with the tracking number.

Moreover, please double-check to make sure the product you have ordered wasn’t marked as Special Order or Backordered by visiting the product page for the item you have ordered.

Please contact our customer service team and we'll try our best to accommodate you! However, we're usually pretty quick in preparing your shipment, so sometimes changes are not possible.

If you wish to cancel your order, please reply to your confirmation email to notify us of your intention to cancel your order.

If your request is received after your order has shipped, we ask that you decline the delivery so the package can be returned to us. Once we receive it back at our warehouse, we’ll issue you a refund within three business days.

If your order was considered “High Risk” it will be cancelled. Reasons for an order being considered “High Risk” are, but not limited to:

- Your shipping and billing address being different

- You placed the order while connected to a VPN, and we cannot reliably confirm your location.

- Your identity, address, phone number, etc. were compromised or were associated with fraudulent activities in the past.

- Your purchase pattern does not match the profiles of our typical customers.

- Prior chargeback claims.

We also reserve the right to cancel your order and provide a full refund without providing an explanation.

You may have someone pick up your in-store pick-up order. Once you receive a confirmation email that your order is ready for pick up, please reply to that email with the details of the person who will be picking up your order. They will be required to provide the same documentation as if you were picking up the order.

We accept trade-ins on most Apple products produced within the past 8-10 years. Use our trade-in calculator to determine the value of your device!

If you agree to the trade-in valuation, you can request a complimentary shipping label from us, so you can send the device to us for evaluation. Once we've confirmed the value, we'll let you know and you can apply that as a credit towards a new purchase, or we can send you a cheque. We recommend that you take the credit as the better option though, as you'll only need to pay the tax on the remaining amount of your new purchase, saving you even more!

Yes! Please contact our customer service team to discuss the opportunity.
