Prohibited – Ad Limitations

Users must comply with all applicable laws, the CaCoupons.ca terms of use, and all posted site rules.

Conformity to Format:

Coupon ads must conform to the format of the system and be similar in format to other ads. Excessive wording or styling alterations will be reformatted at the discretion of CaCoupons.ca. This it to maintain the quality of the website and ensures that it is most useful for consumers and most effective for your business.

Maintaining Canadian Content:

This website strives to serve Canadian businesses with the opportunity to connect to Canadian Shoppers. If you place an ad for a product or service or for a E-Commerce business shipping from outside Canada, we reserve the right to remove your ad, without refund, even if your company ships to Canada free. With the dramatic difference in the value of the Canadian Dollar, versus other Currencies, we belief Canadians are looking to support the Canadian Economy, and more and more are looking to save themselves the cost of currency conversion. If you are an Advertiser who does not respect this clause of our Terms and Conditions, it costs us money to ‘police’ offenders and this is why your advertising fees will not be refunded.

Exceptions

Bona Fide businesses selling legal goods and services however are exempt in general from these restrictions, though certainly some still apply. Contact us prior to advertising if you are in doubt.

Cross posting and Spamming

We consider it spamming it you select locations where you do not have a physical location. For example if you are an E-Commerce business, you must select only those cities where you have a physical warehouse/store or location. If you are a national business with 20 or more locations, we reserve the right to require multiple accounts (maybe one per province if you have 20 or more locations per province. Additional accounts, will be negotiated by CAcoupons.ca on a case by case basis).

  • MULTIPLE Locations:
    • We welcome multi-location businesses, and encourage them to advertise for their various locations. One listing is limited one primary location and has the ability to select numerous other locations while submitting the ad. For example, if your coupon is good for a Oil Change and you own 3 locations in Vancouver, those 3 locations can use the same coupon and listing. If you also own physical locations in Burnaby, Surrey, Calgary, Edmonton, and Toronto you can select these locations in the ad submission process. NOTE: The coupon/deal/ or offer needs to be the same in all locations selected.

Customers will be able to find your coupon by searching for the city they live in, from the Advanced Search Option. While the number of selections allowed is generous, it will not allow a very large number of locations (EG. All A&W locations in BC, or ALL Canadian Tire locations in Canada.) We will work with Franchise Head Offices individually – Contact us for options and details.

This helps the website work more effectively for the consumer and respects our efforts to provide you with a cost effective advertising solution. It is legitimate to classify your product in several product categories if they apply. It is not legitimate to post in categories that are miss classified as this is detrimental to the quality of the website.

Spam; mis-categorized, over-posted, cross-posted, or non-local content may be removed the website administrator, and refund of fees paid will be withheld to cover the cost of our time.
