COVID-19 update

(Updated Jul 7, 2020)

To put it mildly, things are tough right now.  Since there is so much uncertainty, We wanted to update everyone on how Camera Butter and your orders might be affected by this worldwide pandemic. 

We have unprecedented demand right now, and our entire family is working very hard to make sure we've got raw materials to make our products to keep stock, and to get 100% of our orders shipped the same day or very next business day.  

We will update this page as things change.

The short version is this: full speed ahead, with some caveats:

  • Orders are still going out same day or the very next business day.  
  • There have been shipping delays to some areas for items shipped via Canada Post, resulting is some packages being on time, and some being weeks (or even months in some rare cases) late.  This is ever-changing, and depends entirely on your exact location, and how backed up the mail is there.    It probably goes without saying, but we do not have control over how long mail takes, it's up to your local postal service and delays at customs.  Because of this, we cannot offer refunds to people whose mail is taking a long time to arrive.   If you need your order more quickly, choose a tracked method or DHL/UPS/Fedex or you can order from one of our dealers listed in the dealer link at the top of the page.
  • Canada post has stopped accepting packages for some countries.  You can see the whole current list below.  If you live in one of those countries, you can still order using a different courier. 

If you are not prepared for a possible mail delay, then you may want to order from a local dealer.  You can see the list of dealers here.
