Orders & Shipping
Secure Online Ordering
When you purchase tapestries from our store you will be prompted to provide information to complete a transaction. This includes address, telephone number, email address and credit card information. There are two ways in which we protect this information:
This website uses strong encryption to ensure your information is protected when you send it to us across the internet. Using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and 256 bit encryption technology means that your information is, in any practical sense, uncrackable when in transit (see below for details). We use the latest technology and highest available means of security, as great as your bank uses for online banking transactions.
Once a transaction is complete we do not store your credit card information. This means each time you visit the site and buy a product you will be prompted to key in your card details again. However this means you don't have to worry about whether your details are safe with us, they are deleted on completion of the transaction.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol developed to transmit private documents via the Internet. It works by using a private key to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. Many modern browsers, such as Internet Explorer, support SSL and many web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. Typically URL's that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http.
We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover and American Express. These transactions are processed on a securely encrypted secure server using 256 bit technology as safe as online banking. Please note that on most purchases your credit card will not be charged until the day your order is shipped. In addition to credit cards, we also accept payment by wire transfer, certified cheque or bank draft - contact us if you prefer to use any of these methods and we will send you the necessary details. (To place an order and pay by wire transfer, certified cheque or bank draft, please complete the order in the shopping cart using your credit card details in order to complete the order process).
Prices are shown in US$. We do not charge Sales Taxes on the invoice except to Canada where GST/HST is added and where applicable, PST is also charged. (PLEASE NOTE THAT VAT (VALUE ADDED TAX) AND DUTIES MAY APPLY TO INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS)
