You can remove a selected item any time from your cart before you make the payment. Press the x against each product in the cart you wish to remove.

Why am I not able to add a product to my shopping cart?

If a product has "Availability: Out of stock", it means that this product is out of stock at the current time and unavailable to purchase. Stock levels fluctuate and we try our best to ensure that there are always products on the site for you, but there are going to be some products that are very popular and so stock will be at a minimum. Please keep checking the site for updates.

How long will items remain in my shopping cart?

Why can't I find my item?

When you're searching for an item on the Canon Online Store, you may occasionally find that your search does not return any results. This may be to a number of reasons, we suggest you check your spelling or the wording as we may not recognise spaces etc; and to check our website for all current products (as the one you want may no longer be available or we may not offer it on the store).

Payment & Security
What are the payment methods available?

The Canon Online Store is able to accept American Express, MasterCard, Visa and PayPal.

Can I change my payment method?

No, once the order has been submitted we are unable to amend the payment method.

When will my credit card be charged?

Canon receives authorisation to charge your account prior to shipping your item(s) therefore your card will be charged once you have confirmed your order.

Can I change my billing address?

Your billing address is the registered address that your credit card company holds. Please ensure that your billing address is correct at the time of placing your order. Once your order has been accepted by Canon, your billing address cannot be changed.

If I am travelling, how do I get my GST refund?
Why was my credit card payment not processed?

Your credit card company may have declined authorisation to debit your card due to a number of reasons. We suggest you contact your card issuing financial institution or check the “Troubleshooting credit card payment errors FAQ” below

Troubleshooting credit card payment errors - checklist

Double check the card type (for example, American Express), the account number and expiration date.
Remove any dashes or spaces from the account number.
Is your card new or recently reissued?

  • Call the financial institution to make sure it has been activated.
  • Is it possible you have exceeded your daily spending limit for your card? 
    • Most debit and credit cards have daily spending limits that may substantially delay the processing of an order — even if there is enough money in an account. When using a debit card, funds are immediately reserved in your bank account at the time you place your order. Please consult your card-issuing financial institution for information about your daily spending limits if you are having trouble placing your order.

Have you checked if you have sufficient available credit for the purchase amount?

  • Check with your financial institution.

Do you require authorization to proceed with the purchase?

  • Check with your financial institution.

Does your billing address match the address details with your card issuing financial institution?

  • To prevent any unnecessary delays processing your order, please ensure that the billing address on your order matches the information on your credit card account. If you have recently moved or are unsure whether you receive your credit card statement at your work or home address, please contact your card-issuing financial institution using the number on the back of your credit card to confirm.

Did you use the correct security code?

  • The card security code is a unique three or four digit number printed on the front (American Express) or back (Visa/MasterCard) of your card, in addition to the account number.

Using The Software
Questions about using the software
How do I copy my project to a new location?

The process of copying your project to a new location depends on which operating system you are using (Windows/Mac).

To copy your project to a new location:

1. Go to the following folder on your hard drive:

If you're working on a PC:My Documents\PhotoPico Projects Projects

If you're working on a Mac:username\PhotoPico Projects Projects (the user name is the folder with the 'home' icon next to it)

In this folder you will find another folder which contains your project.

2. Unfortunately the pictures will not automatically be copied with the project file.

To ensure that the pictures are copied as well, find the pictures that you have used (you can do this easily by right-clicking the picture within the editor and clicking 'Show in Windows Explorer' on a PC and 'Show in Finder' on a Mac) and copy them to another folder.

3. Copy the folder containing your project and photos to your desired destination (network location, USB stick, CD). Once you have finished copying your project, check the destination location to make sure you've copied it correctly.

4. Please ensure the editor has been installed on the destination computer prior to copying the project to the computer.

If you're working on a PC:Copy the project and photo folders to the PhotoPico Projects Projects in the 'My Documents' folder of the destination computer.

If you're working on a Mac:Copy the project and photo folders to the PhotoPico Projects Projects in the 'username' folder of the destination computer.

5. To open the project, simply open the editor and click on 'Open an Existing Project'. The project should be listed as one of the existing projects under the same name.

As the pictures are not imported automatically, the editor will ask you to update the new picture location.A window will pop-up saying 'The following pictures are missing...'. Click on the 'Find Pictures' button.

The editor will then continue with a 'Find missing pictures.. ' window, which has the pictures listed there. Click on one of the pictures and click the 'Update' button.A window should come up to allow you to choose the photo folder (you will not be able to copy them straight off the CD, so please make sure you copy the photo folder to an easy to find location, such as 'My Documents' or the Desktop).

Once you've located the photo that you were intending to update, select the photo and click 'Select'.After a moment, the editor should recognise that the other 'missing' pictures are located in the picture folder and will ask you if you would like to update the other missing photos as well. Click 'Yes' and every photo should now be updated and you should be able to click on the 'Continue' button to proceed to editing your project.
