Shipping, Delivery, and In-Store Pickup Info

For online orders, we are currently offering flat rate shipping within Canada, local delivery within downtown Toronto, and free in-store pickup at each of our three stores. The options available to you are based on your location, and will appear under the "Delivery" drop-down menu at checkout. 

Please note:

We are working with a number of different carriers and shipping partners to provide the quickest and most economical delivery for your orders. Our methods and rates may change as we continue to adapt to changing circumstances. We ask for your patience and understanding; please know that we are doing our best while prioritizing the health and safety of our staff. 


When will I get my books?!

All orders are processed and shipped from TYPE Books in the Junction. Orders are packed up and ready to ship within 48 hours of receiving your order, but please refer to the delivery methods below for specific information regarding processing and general shipping times. 


Online orders may be picked up at any of our locations, during regular business hours. Please select your preferred location in the Delivery menu upon checkout. You will be notified via email when your order is ready to be picked up. Please have your order number ready when you arrive. You do not need to schedule a time or contact us in advance.

  • Queen Street and Forest Hill Pickup: Since orders are being processed at our Junction store, it may take 3-4 business days to have them transferred to these locations. Please wait until you have received a confirmation email before coming to pick up your order.
  • Junction Pickup: Orders placed before 12pm (Monday to Friday) are usually ready for pick up the next day. Orders placed over the weekend will be ready for pickup the following Monday. Please wait until you have received a confirmation email before coming to pick up your order.

IMPORTANT: If you would like to pick up a book the same day, it is best to call the store nearest you and have our staff put it on hold (if the book is in stock) rather than placing an order online.



  • $8 flat rate delivery within downtown Toronto 

If your shipping address is within our delivery zone, the option for Local Delivery will appear in the Delivery menu at checkout. If this option does not appear, it means you are outside of our delivery zone. In this case, please choose from either flat rate shipping or in-store pickup.

Deliveries are made twice a week. Please note that it may take up to 5 business days from the time you placed your order for your order to be delivered.



  • Place your order before 12pm for next day shipping

Orders placed before 12pm (Monday to Friday) are processed the same day and shipped the following day. Once your order has left the shop, it may take anywhere from 1 to 4 business days to arrive, based on your location (see chart below).

Orders placed after 12pm (Monday to Friday), over the weekend, or on statutory holidays are processed the next business day.

Province Rate Estimated Delivery
ON & QC $12 1-2 business days
AB, BC, MB, SK $16 1-2 business days
NB, NL, NS, PE $18 3-4 business days
NT, NU, YT $25 3-4 business days
For example, if you live in Ontario and place an order on Monday morning, you will receive it by end of day Wednesday; if you place an order Monday evening, you will receive it on Thursday.
