You must notify us within 48 hours of receipt of goods to get a Return Authorization Number, refund OR to report missing/damaged items.  You can return the purchased items within 15 days of receipt for an exchange or refund (less shipping charges) subject to the Return Conditions outlined below. We try to make the Return and Exchange process as easy and hassle-free for you as possible. Please Contact us should you have further questions.

Privacy.  We respect your privacy!  Any and all the information collected on this site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, disclosed, or loaned!  Any information you provide will be held with the utmost care and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail us.

Manufacturing.  All orders are packaged at the store. Our factory cannot guarantee the colors you see on our website will match exactly to what you will receive.  The colors listed on the site are representative of the colors as a standard. The differences in monitors and colors preferences vary from computer to computer.  Our factory dyes the beads to our specifications but each batch of dye might produce different results. Our factory cannot guarantee the same color results from order to order.  It is best to order large quantities of a specific style if you have a project in mind.  If you have special requests, we will try our best to accommodate your needs. Please inform us of your special requests before placing a wholesale order.

Credit Card Processing.  We use Authorize.net and PAYPAL for our credit card processing. We use these services to protect you the buyer and us, the seller. If you use PAYPAL it does not require that you have a PAYPAL account. It is simply a virtual processing company that is secure and handles millions of credit card transactions a year. Please call us if you have any questions. An accurate up-to-date e-mail is required for communication.

Electronic Downloads

Electronic Downloads  When you purchase a product that is an electronic download.  Your responsibility is to download the item within 15 days of your payment.  The download link will expire in 15 days.  IF you have not downloaded the file from the link in your electronic receipt with the 15 days the only way to get the file again is to repurchase the electronic file.
