Combined payments

Gift cards and credit cards can be combined to pay for your order, except when paying with PayPal or Klarna. For those payment methods, you must pay the full amount of your order via Klarna or PayPal.

Using PayPal on mec.ca

When you select PayPal as payment method, you’ll be directed to login to your PayPal account to complete your transaction. There is no charge to open a PayPal account and there is no added cost for buying products or services. When you pay with PayPal, you don’t share your financial information with MEC.

PayPal returns

If items are in resalable condition and meet the conditions of MEC’s Rocksolid Guarantee, they may be returned to MEC. PayPal purchases returned via our Customer Care Centre can be refunded to the original PayPal account within 365 days of purchase; items returned after 365 days will be refunded by MEC gift card (non-members have 30 days to return products). Stores cannot refund to PayPal accounts; PayPal purchases returned to stores will be refunded by MEC gift card.

Using Klarna on mec.ca

When you checkout and choose Klarna as a payment method, you’ll spread the cost of your order over four interest-free payments. You’ll be directed to enter a credit card or debit card number for automatic payments every two weeks. There is no interest payable when payments are made on time.

  • The first payment is due when your order ships.
  • The remaining three payments are automatically charged to your credit card every two weeks.
  • Klarna currently accepts Mastercard or Visa. Please note, prepaid cards are not accepted.
  • You’ll need to have a credit card or debit card billed to a Canadian address, be over 18 years old and have a phone that can receive SMS text messages.
  • Klarna is available for orders under $4000.

Klarna Returns

If items are in resalable condition and meet the conditions of MEC’s Rocksolid Guarantee, they may be returned to MEC. Returns will be refunded to an MEC gift card, or can be exchanged for another item. It is your responsibility to continue making any remaining payments due to Klarna. You can use the Klarna app to manage your order and upcoming payments. If you need any help, Klarna Customer Service is always available.
