NEW ZEALAND – THAT’S A LONG WAY FROM WHERE I AM! WILL IT TAKE A LONG TIME TO DELIVER MY ORDER?
It’s true that our home base is on the other side of the world! Fortunately our makers are in the USA, Mexico, UK and Europe. That’s why we have arrangements with them to send goods directly to our customers rather than have to send them to us first. Better for shipping times – and the environment!
Depending on where you live, what you’ve ordered and where our maker is located, it could take up to 14 days to deliver your item. Our items are made to order, so delivery estimates include making and processing times. Further information is given within individual product descriptions.
These estimates are for guidance only and cannot be guaranteed. So if you need your item by a certain date, please order in plenty of time.
DO YOU OFFER EXPRESS DELIVERY SERVICES FOR URGENT ORDERS?
Yes, for some products. Please see individual product information.
WHAT CURRENCY WILL I BE CHARGED IN?
Our store currency is the US dollar and you will be charged in this currency. If this is not your home currency, your bank or credit card company may charge you a small fee for currency conversion.
DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL?
We regret that we are unable to accept PayPal payments.
HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING COST?
Standard shipping costs the equivalent of US$5. See our shipping policy for further information about shipping.
WILL I HAVE TO PAY VAT?
We are required to charge VAT on all orders from UK addresses.
IS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION SAFE?
Please contact us if you need to know what information we hold about you, or you need to correct it (for example if your address or phone number changes).
DO YOU ACCEPT GUEST POSTS ON YOUR BLOG?
Yes! We’re happy to accept guest posts which fit our criteria, values and vibe. We’re particularly keen to feature posts from travellers with personal challenges – such as wheelchair users, unsighted or partially-sighted travellers – as we want to know what it’s like for you. Please see our guest posts page for details.
WOULD YOU SELL OUR PRODUCTS ON YOUR STORE?
Possibly, if you are able to fulfil our criteria and requirements. We only work with long-established commercial businesses and artisan makers with a verifiable record of success and trust, who are able to accommodate our business model.
