Is my payment secure? Our payment process is secured by Stripe payments. No card information is kept by us.
Why does is my bank statement show multiple transactions for the same order? When you place an order, you will see a pre-authorization on your account. This hold allows us to verify that funds are available and enables us to proceed with processing your order. When your items ship, a final charge is processed for the item(s). In some circumstances, your bank will show this final charge separately from the pre-authorization, making it appear like a duplicate charge. However, the pre-authorization hold will drop from your account within 3–5 business days, depending on the policies of your bank, and your account will reflect only the final charge.
Can I use credit card for payments? Yes. Just fill in your customer and shipping information and you will be prompted for your credit card details.
Can I be notified when something comes back into stock? Yes. If you go to the product you want and try to buy, it will prompt you for an email address. As soon as that style/size comes back in, we’ll send you an email.
