How to Order
If you prefer to pay by cashiers/personal check or money order, you can still use our online order form by selecting "check/money order" when you choose a payment method. Using this procedure, you will not have to complete any credit card information. When your order information is complete, simply click the "Send this order" button and we will automatically receive your order and you will receive an order confirmation. Please print a copy of the order for your records and mail us your payment. We will ship your items when we receive your payment. Orders are automatically cancelled if we have not received payment within two weeks of placing the order.
You also have the option of printing out an order form, which you can mail or fax (see Contact information). Alternatively, you can call us with your order at our toll-free number: 1-866-715-BEAD. We are available to take your phone orders weekdays (except for holidays), 7:30am to 5:15pm (Pacific Time).
Please keep in mind that orders submitted after the Friday cut-off time (noon Pacific Time) may not ship until Monday, depending on the shipment method that you choose. We are also not open on major holidays.
We gladly accept international orders for your jewelry supply needs and currently export to over 50 international countries. We are capable of responding to written customer service inquiries in English, French, and Japanese. International orders are shipped via Global Priority by the US Postal Service, or by FedEx (see International Shipping for more details). IMPORTANT: For international orders paid for with credit card, Artbeads.com will NOT ship to an address that does not match the address for the credit card. The order processing team at Artbeads.com will place a phone call to the credit card issuing bank to verify billing information before shipments are dispatched, and we will hold orders until valid information is obtained.
Returns and Exchanges
If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with your order, you may exchange or return most items for a full refund of the original price paid, less shipping, within 60 days. We will gladly accept exchanges and returns for store credit anytime after 60 days. Items returned to us MUST be in their original condition and packaging.

To contact our Returns Department with questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer price breaks depending on the number of beads you purchase (i.e., the more you buy, the better the price). This enables you to receive "wholesale" prices on any given product without having to reach a minimum order value. This pricing is not available on a "mix-and-match" basis. In other words, volume prices are based on the quantity of each item purchased, and not the total of any one type of item (e.g., alphabet beads).
We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, JCB, money orders, personal checks (In U.S. Funds drawing from U.S. banks only), cashiers checks and PayPal. We do not ship COD. If you use a credit card for your method of payment, the billing address must match that shown on your credit card statement. Otherwise, your order will be delayed until we can contact you to obtain the correct address.

Please make your cashiers check, personal check or money order out to "Artbeads.com" and mail to:

We make every effort to maintain our inventory and mark items "out-of-stock" on our website. On occasion, however, we may have fewer items in stock than what you order. Should this happen, we will ship you what we have and adjust the amount of your purchase accordingly. We will also email you to let you know that the remaining product is out of stock. You may decide at that point whether or not you would like us to back order the out-of-stock product. At this time we are unable to ship back-orders to international countries. In this case, your back-order will be cancelled. Regardless of the value of your back-order, we will make every effort to notify you by either phone or email with regard to the status of your order. International customers should revisit our site frequently for out-of-stock items, since we will post them back to the site as soon as they become available.
On occasion, Artbeads.com may run out of stock for a particular item. If this happens, an "Out of Stock" notice will appear and you will no longer see an "Order" button. If you are still interested in purchasing this item, and would like to be notified when it is back in stock, simply click the icon and a page will pop up where you can enter your email address. You will receive an email from us the next time we receive a shipment of this item. Included in the email will be a link back to the item for your convenience. Your privacy is very important to us, and we will never sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your email address to a third party. It will only be used for communications between Artbeads.com and you.
Because our inventory is constantly changing as we add many more new and exciting products, we do not carry a print catalog at this time. We do hope that you will find the time to explore our website.
* Please note that all prices and policies on Artbeads.com are subject to change without notice.
