      Shopping with the Audio Ideas Guide is easy and completely secure. Audio Ideas Ink Ltd. is an Internet Secure Certified Paypal Merchant, which means that ONLY our transaction processing partner (Internet Secure) “sees” your credit card information. AT NO TIME DURING THE TRANSACTION PROCESS DOES AIG HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION.

     We also now accept Paypal. Simply use the shopping cart system as normal and choose “Paypal” from the drop down menu at the bottom of the shopping cart when you are ready to check out. You can either pay with your Paypal account or with any major credit card. You do not need to have a Paypal account to pay via Paypal. Currently all Paypal transactions are in US dollars.

      Our shopping cart system simply records your purchase requests, calculates tax and shipping, accepts shipping and billing information, and then passes this data to Internet Secure’s secure server or Paypal. They collect credit card information, perform the credit card transaction and deposit the funds in AIG’s bank account directly.


      Shopping transactions with AIG are carried out in Canadian Dollars for orders shipped within Canada, and in U.S. Dollars for orders shipped anywhere outside of Canada. When paying by credit card U.S. and international customers MUST select the “Secure Credit Card Payment (U.S. & International)” option from the payment options drop down menu. Similarly Canadian customers MUST select the “Canadian Secure Credit Card Payment” option from the drop down menu. Incorrect payment method selection will significantly delay your order and my result in additional charges.


      Compact discs, magazines and other products returned within 30 days in “as new” condition will be exchanged for credit or refund. Mailing costs are not refundable. Refunds are not available on magazine subscriptions.

      Ordering By Cheque or Money Order

      If you’re still nervous about ordering online with your credit card our shopping cart now has an option allowing you to order by cheque or money order. Under “Payment Option” choose “Check or Money Order” from the drop down menu. This will take you to an invoice form. Print this form and it send to AIG by mail with a cheque or money order for the total amount shown. Note: YOUR ORDER WILL NOT BE SHIPPED UNTIL WE RECEIVE YOUR PAYMENT BY MAIL.


      As an Ontario Corporation we are
legally obligated to collect PST (8%) on orders shipped within
Ontario, and GST (7%) on orders shipped within Canada.

     Please make sure to select the
appropriate taxation from the drop down menu.

     U.S. and international orders are exempt from these taxes. Customers ordering from outside Canada should be sure to select the “None of the Above” option from the Sales Tax drop down menu in the shopping cart.


      All orders are shipped by first
class mail within one week of receiving the order. Orders by Check
or Money Order are shipped upon receipt of payment. North American
orders should arrive within two to three weeks

     Shipping charges are as follows:

     CANADA: The first item in an order is $3.00. Each additional item is $0.50.
     U.S.A.: The first item in an order is $4.00. Each additional item is $1.00.
     EUROPE: The first item in an order is $7.00. Each additional item is $1.50.
