I accept payment via Paypal (you can use Paypal for credit cards, balance transfers and e-checks- you no longer need to sign up for an account to pay via Paypal!).
❉ Completed payment (with the exception of Paypal e-checks) or contact/agreement with me to handle payment otherwise is kindly requested within 24 hours of purchase.
❉ SHIPPING IN THE U.S.: I ship via USPS (United States Postal Service). Shipping TRANSIT times are NOT guaranteed by our U.S. postal service, but I DO guarantee that I will ship your order in 3 BUSINESS DAYS (Monday - Friday). Jewelry purchases within the U.S. will generally ship via USPS first class mail and have added delivery confirmation service so that I can track its safe arrival. I also offer the option of upgrading your package to ship via USPS Priority Mail at checkout.
Sometimes packages are temporarily misdirected or slowed by the USPS. Please understand I have no control over this. If your package is showing no movement via the USPS tracking number after 5 weeks from ship date, I am glad to offer a refund or replacement.
❉ SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE U.S.: I guarantee I will ship your package within 3 business days (Monday - Friday). Packages shipping internationally (outside the U.S.), will ship via USPS first class international mail, which can take anywhere up to 8+ weeks (but average is much less), depending on your country's postal efficiency and custom regulations. I cannot be held responsible for slowness or delays in your package's arrival due to customs or other shipping issues out of my control. If your international package has not been delivered and is showing no movement via the USPS tracking number 7 weeks after ship date, I am glad to offer a refund or replacement.
❉ Incorrect / Outdated Addresses: It is a buyer's responsibility to make sure they have entered the correct mailing address for their order here in my shop (AND on Paypal if you used it to pay). Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing that an address is old / incorrect / etc. Packages that are mis-sent due to an incorrect address given by buyer will be re-shipped at the buyer's expense only; and this can only occur once I have the mis-sent package back in my possession.
❉ Need RUSH Service?: If you need an item shipped rush delivery even faster than USPS Priority Mail, please contact me *FIRST* regarding availability and a shipping quote. Whatever your shipping needs are should generally not be a problem but added rush shipping expenses will of course be the buyer's responsibility.
❉ FEES/TAXES/DUTIES/ETC FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE U.S.:
International customers are responsible for ALL fees/taxes/etc. associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject but not limited to: import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for shipping due to customs clearance must be THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY of the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates that are beyond my control. **Please allow for the possibility of up to 8 weeks for delivery, due to slowness or delays on behalf of customs or various country's postal systems. This is rare- but please be prepared.
