These are my shop policies. I've just copied and pasted from my etsy page - please use anything here that you agree with and want as your own shop policy! I don't care if you even cut and paste it into your own page if it'd help you get started
Another tip is to go and browse your favourite seller's shop policies and have a look at the kinds of things they have listed. It's important to make up policies that you can stick to and then stick to them!Payment
♥ PAYMENT DEADLINES ♥
Everyone likes to get paid! Payment must be received within 3 days of placing your order. If I have not heard from you within 3 days, I will send you a friendly reminder note to see how things are going on your end. If payment is not received within 5 days of placing your order, the purchase will be cancelled.
I understand that the payment process can be a little tricky! If at any stage you need help or your situation changes, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to walk you through the payment process or set up other methods of payment.
♥ TYPES OF PAYMENT ♥
For international buyers, I only take payment via Paypal. I also accept credit cards through Paypal. You do not need to open an account with paypal to use your credit card. Simply order through the shop, click on "pay with paypal" and enter your card info.
For Australian buyers, I accept Paypal or direct deposit. If you wish to pay via direct deposit please contact me after making your purchase and I will send you out the details.Shipping
I always endeavour to have all items shipped within 2 days of receiving payment (excluding sundays). If you are ordering a custom, please allow 1-2 weeks "crafting time".
I will ship anywhere in the world that Australia Post will deliver to! If your country isn't listed, please contact me for shipping costs.
Postage in Australia is unfortunately expensive for anything thicker than 2cm, so I ship by economy air to keep my shipping costs as low as possible for you. Items shipped via this method usually take 1 week - 10 days to arrive. If you require a speedier method or insurance/delivery confirmation, please contact me before paying or leave a message in the "message to seller" box and I will send you a revised invoice.
I am also happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases. Please contact me before paying for a revised invoice, or to set up a special custom listing.
I always try to recycle like-new packaging where I can, but let me know if you prefer a brand new box.
♥ BUYING A GIFT? ♥
If your purchase is a gift, I am happy to mail it straight to the recipient. Please convo me or write in the "message to seller" if you want your item gift wrapped and please include your message for the gift-tag!
♥ INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS ♥
Please be aware of your country's customs fees and regulations. I always fill out my customs declarations with the correct amount you paid, and will not classify the item as a "gift". Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
Unfortunately, due to the nature of customs, I am unable to accept refunds or exchanges unless the item is something I can reasonably relist. Refunds or exchanges on custom items will therefore be granted on a case-by-case basis.
I do accept returns and exchanges on regular items as long as contact is made within 7 days of receiving the item. All items must be shipped back in original condition at the buyer's expense. A refund (less original shipping costs) will be granted as soon as the package is received and inspected. If an exchange is desired, the buyer must pay additional shipping costs for the new item to be sent out.
Once I post an item, what happens to it is out of my control. I always pack your purchases securely and safely, and I have never yet had a problem with items being damaged or going missing during shipping. However, if such a problem arises, or your package never arrives, please contact me and we will try to work something out. My greatest concern is seeing you happy and satisfied!Additional Policies and FAQs
♥ ALLERGIES ♥
All Two Cheese Please items come from a smoke-free home!
For those allergic to dogs: I do have two dogs, but they are poodles - this means they don't shed hair! They are also not allowed near anything I craft, so I feel confident that my items should be suitable for those who suffer from dog allergies, but if this is a concern to you please do contact me.
♥ BUYING FOR CHILDREN ♥
Please note that not all of my items are suitable for young children! You know your children best, so please keep them in mind when purchasing something that may have small parts.
♥ CUSTOM ITEMS ♥
I am always open to customs! It's one of my favourite things to sit down with someone and turn their ideas into reality! I would love to work with you to make your ideas come to life
♥ WHOLESALE & CONSIGNMENT ♥
Serious wholesale & consigment enquiries are welcome! Please contact me for more details.
♥ COPYRIGHT POLICY ON MY HAND-CARVED STAMPS ♥
All the stamps you see here are my designs, and as such are copyrighted. If you would like to use them for anything other than personal items (ie: anything that is to be sold), please contact me before hand. I do grant permission in most cases, providing you mention my name/shop in a line of credit in your listing.
If you need a stamp designed for use on items you are selling, I can do this. However, if you wish for your custom stamp to never be duplicated, there will be an additional fee to buy the exclusive rights of use to my design.
If the stamp is a design that you've provided, then obviously it will not be copyrighted to me, and you are of course free to use it however you please.
I hope this can help someone
