Q. What does "verify my order" mean?
A.Before you submit your order in the checkout, double check to ensure you've purchased the right quantities and amounts, that you've included everything you need, and that you've entered the correct address for shipping (if applicable). If you aren't sure about something, we recommend signing in and using the Wish List feature to save your cart for later. You can also chat or call the store to speak with an associate for further help before completing your order.
Q. Why can't I change my order once submitted?
A.To provide you the best possible shopping experience and customer service, we begin processing your orders as soon as they are submitted! That means we may have already begun cutting fabric, pulling products off the shelves, and placing orders with suppliers by the time you contact us. Because of this, it is extremely expensive to make changes to orders. In order to keep costs as low as possible for you, we don't accept changes to orders. We encourage you to verify your order before submitting it.
Q. Why do you charge a cancellation fee?
A.Similar to making edits to orders, we often begin processing immediately upon receiving them. Unfortunately, due to an increase of customers placing, cancelling, and re-placing orders, we have to charge a 15% cancellation fee. This fee helps to recover the cost of fabric that can't be resold, and administration costs associated with restocking and cancelling orders with suppliers. The fee is based on the subtotal of the order you're cancelling, and the the fee will be withheld from the amount you are refunded upon cancellation.
