Ordering and Return Policy

Yes we do offer PayPal as a payment option. Many of our clients prefer PayPal as a quick way to checkout as you don’t have to enter in your payment information every time you order. PayPal is one of the most secure ways to purchase on the internet today and we highly recommend them as a payment method.
Once you click the SUBMIT button in the payment area, your payment is immediately processed.

All orders are processed through our automated website. We use a 128 bit encrypted payment gateway  for all Credit Card payments. Paypal orders are processed through PayPal’s secure encrypted banking system.

After making payment, you will then be transferred back to our site for your receipt information

Once you click the SUBMIT button in the payment area, your payment is immediately processed.

If you receive an email, or review your order information, and observe it is in pending status, this means the payment method you have chosen did not process correctly.

Log In to your account and look up your order #. If it is “pending” than your order did not process and will not ship.

Click on the order # in your order history and confirm all the Credit Card/payment and Billing Address info is correct. Please resubmit your payment

After you have tried this , if you still have trouble, lease contact your Credit card company to confirm that funds are available for use, with no security hold in place.
