We prefer that you place your wholesale bead orders via the website, as Internet orders are given priority status and will be filled much more quickly than orders placed by phone, fax, or email. Additionally, orders may be mailed -- a great option when you require specific items based on enclosed samples. When you place an online order, you will receive a confirmation email once the order is received and then another confirmation when the order is shipped.
Our stock levels are updated continually, but with a constant flow of transactions inventories are occasionally inaccurate. When an item that you have ordered is out of stock, we generally do not place this item on back-order. Usually, out-of-stock items are restocked within a month with the exception of closeout items; however, this is not guaranteed.
Orders over 500,00€ that are shipping to EU countries will receive FREE standard shipping when paid by Bank Transfer. For all other orders, shipping will be based on the actual carrier charge. The shipping method is selected at the time of order and the cost for shipping will be added to the order. Shipping costs are non-refundable. We have partnered with UPS to provide you with a reliable and efficient way to receive your goods.
