Payment of an order is considered acceptance of our policies. Please read FAQ's or contact us with any questions.
Payment is due at time of order.
We use Paypal Express Checkout.
Kentucky residents will be charged 6% sales tax.
Customer who delivers cleared payment first is considered the buyer. After 5 days, unpaid orders will be cancelled. An e-check is not a cleared payment until it is deposited by Paypal. Usually 3-5 business days. Your order will not ship until it clears. For faster service, we suggest a credit card with Paypal Express if possible.
We do not take personal checks.
Orders using e-checks are considered unpaid & therefore the item(s) are still for sale until the check clears. Widget could be sold to another customer during this time. If this occurs-unpaid order will be cancelled or refunded if payment came through after other sale.
Shipping & Handling Charges Shipping time
We ship everything through the U.S. Post office. We encourage combined shipments. USPS delivery times are estimates only.
We will combine any of your orders possible, if it will not compromise the products (no rolled posters shipped with flat posters, etc).
Please contact us for a combined invoice for best pricing. We will weigh your items together to get the best rates. Ecrater's combined order s&h will be higher than ours, please let us do the combining for you.
We will use USPS flat rate boxes if they fit & will lower your shipping costs.

We ship- usually next business day after cleared payment. Now shipping Mon-Fri.
Please allow extra time for increased mail dates, holidays or possible weather delays. We ship from here fast, but we cannot control time, distance, weather or the U.S. post office.
Stripe charge customers, you will receive an email notice from us with delivery confirmation when your order ships. Please check your spam folder if you have not gotten this after 2 business days.

Things that may delay your shipment
We try to ship everything by the next business day, even so, sometimes there are delays. Here are some possible reasons:
Power or site outages beyond our control. Postal holidays. Weather. Your ecrater address & payment address do not match.
The US postal distribution center has closed in our town. This has resulted in longer than usual deliveries, usually only a day or 2 longer than the post office states.
Our postage company advises us of more than one possible address match- a suite # or apartment # has been left off.
An order is placed with only an address, or a business with no buyer name.
You paid with an e-check and it has not cleared.
You placed multiple orders in rapid succession & we are trying to contact you to see if this is accurate or a mistake.
