Delivery & Shipping

Same-Day Delivery Policy

Lotus Toronto ships same-day for orders placed before 5:00PM and next-day (potentially sooner) for orders received placed after.

Orders that have fulfilled our same-day guarantee eligibility and are placed before 5:00PM will receive their parcel no later than 10pm. If you are a new customer, your order will not be dispatched until your payment has been processed. Your order will arrive in a discreet, unmarked vehicle, and your courier will be similarly discreet and smell-proof. We provide door-to-door delivery for all houses, and deliver to the lobby for all residential buildings or hotels.

Lotus Toronto delivers same-day within the GTA. Orders outside this region are eligible for mail-order, or may be subject to a delivery fee for same-day delivery determined on a case-by-case basis.​

Tipping is not required, but is greatly appreciated!

Mail Order Delivery Policy

Orders that are outside of our same-day delivery zone are sent via Canada Post mail order with tracking. Orders placed and paid in full before 3pm EST will be shipped the same business day between Monday - Wednesday only. Please note that mail orders placed from Thursday - Sunday will be shipped on Monday. Unfortunately, Canada Post has become increasingly unreliable during our experience with them, and therefore, Lotus Toronto assumes no responsibility for lost or undelivered parcels. Please proceed at your own risk.

How fast do I recieve an order if I place it today?

Your order is guaranteed for same-day delivery within the GTA, given that your order has been submitted before 5:00PM EST with all necessary requirements. We do not provide time stamps or ETA on any orders, however, you will be notified 30 minutes before your courier arrives, as well as on arrival. Orders placed after 5:00PM EST ship next-day or sooner, upon our discretion.

Canada Post Mail Orders submitted and paid before 3pm will be shipped out the same business day.

[NEW CUSTOMERS] - If you place an order without paying, we will hold your order for up to 24hours to receive payment, after which it will be automatically cancelled.

What happens if I can't be present during a delivery?

If you would like us to leave your parcel in a safe-drop location, mailbox, or building concierge, please specify before checking out in the "Additional Notes" field. Please note that we do not assume responsibility for lost or stolen parcels should you choose to safe-drop your delivery.

If you suspect you will not be present to receive your parcel, please call, or email us letting us know so that we can avoid dispatching your order, should you wish to receive it the next day. You may cancel or reschedule your delivery up until 5pm the day of your delivery without any penalty.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your delivery after 5pm, you may be charged a $15 re-shipping fee.

Please note that all sales on our website are final and we do not provide refunds.
