FAQs

BACKORDER

Backorder refers to an item that is out of stock, but will be coming back in stock at a later date. Craftestan offers you the option to purchase an item that is listed on the website as a backordered item that will ship once it is back in stock.

We estimate to our best ability on when we know our backordered item will ship. We list the target date or time frame on the product page. Please keep in mind that there are things outside of our control. This means that delays may occur. Should there be any delays to the product’s availability date, you will be notified via email.

We understand that sometimes timing is critical, so if you wish to cancel your backorder, please send your request to support@craftestan.co.uk and include your order number.

When making a backorder purchase online, full payment is required for our artisan to start crafting that particular item specifically for you. Once the crafting of that item has become complete, your order will ship and be delivered. If you were to cancel your order, we will issue a full refund.

 

 

Due to the nature of backorders, we understand that the delivery of your purchase will be delayed. All items that are purchased as a backorder, are subject to a 30-day return window that begins when the item is shipped, not the purchase date as listed in Craftestan’s standard return policy. To review all other details for returns, please view here.

DELIVERY

We will dispatch your order as quickly as possible from our warehouse within the estimated time period advertised. Once your parcel is out for delivery you will receive an email and/or SMS text message from the courier directly, providing you with a tracking number and where possible an estimated time slot for delivery. 

Please allow the time-scale advertised on-line for your purchase to arrive. For all our UK and some European customers you can check your parcels progress by using the tracking system on HERE.

When your parcel has left our warehouse you will receive an email from the courier providing you with a tracking number. You can use this reference number to view the status of your parcel on the courier’s website and view when it’s likely to arrive. Should you require any assistance with delivery or want to get in touch with couriers you will need to quote your tracking number. Any NON-UK orders will be delivered by one of the following couriers: Aramex, Fedex, DHL, DPD Europe. 

All UK deliveries are made with DPD couriers. You can use their website www.dpd.co.uk to track your parcel, reply to your calling card message and view any current delivery updates. If you require any further assistance please speak to our customer care team who can contact DPD couriers on your behalf.

PLEASE NOTE

We’re committed to getting your order to you as quickly as possible, but sometimes goods may be subject to delays which are beyond our control. Please note occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances and weather conditions, the delivery may be delayed. We will try to inform you of any complications however if you’re concerned we recommend checking your tracking number on the courier’s website for updates. 

*SALE* PLEASE NOTE that during the sale and promotional periods it is not always possible to adhere to our normal delivery time scales. Due to the high volume of orders received we would estimate up to 10 working days for UK delivery and further few days for European and international parcels. While we will try to get your order out to you as soon as possible please bear with us during this time.

If you have provided an incorrect/ incomplete delivery address or you’re struggling to have the order delivered please contact our customer care team. 

Please provide us with your seven-digit order reference along with the new or correct full address and we will contact the couriers to request the change on your behalf. You may want to choose an alternative delivery address such as work, friends or relatives house as the parcel does require a signature. You will need to contact us directly to make these address changes as the couriers can only authorise a new label to be applied to the parcel if the request comes from us in writing.

We can offer delivery to your permanent residential address or your place of employment (as long as it is not a PO BOX address). If you want your delivery to be sent to your place of work make sure you input these details into the ‘Shipping Address’ at the checkout. Please also be confident that there will be someone at your work who will be able to sign for the parcel upon receipt and ensure it gets to you as we cannot be held responsible for packages that go missing once they are signed for.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer a delivery service to BFPO or PO BOX addresses with the couriers we use. If you have input either of these as your shipping address, your parcel will be inevitably be returned to us or queried before dispatching to be amended to a suitable street address. Please refrain from submitting a PO BOX or BFPO address as this will result in your parcel becoming delayed or cancelled. If you’re concerned please contact our customer care team

UK deliveries are normally handled by DPD.
International Standard Delivery is normally handled by DPD.

Please note the estimated time for deliveries are based on working days from the date of purchase (Monday – Friday). If you haven’t received your order within this time our customer care team will be happy to locate your order for you. Before getting in touch, have you: 

– Checked your confirmation email to ensure we have the correct delivery address for your parcel and that your contact details are update
– Checked if you received a text message, email or attempted calling card from the courier. Your parcel may be awaiting collection at your local delivery depot or you may need to rearrange delivery
– Checked with your neighbours to see if they have accepted the parcel on your behalf
– Looked in safe areas around your delivery address where the delivery driver may have left your parcel e.g. behind a bin or in a shed, garage or porch 

If you are still unable to locate your parcel please contact our customer care team

Please note we are not responsible for any customs or import charges and duties applied to your parcel. The costs involved are to be paid locally by the customer. We recommend if purchasing from outside the EU to please check with your border/customs agencies before ordering so you’re fully aware of any charges that your goods will face when entering the country for delivery. 

*PLEASE NOTE when ordering during our sale periods all orders within the UK, Europe, USA and Rest Of The World will take additional days to arrive which we will try to advertise. We hope that our customers will understand that during this busy period our normal delivery times are not available and to expect their order later than usual. Thank you for your patience.

Don’t be alarmed there are many reasons why a parcel may not arrive when expected; this could be down to a drivers route change, traffic, weather conditions and potentially just an issue with the address provided. The best thing to do is look up your tracking number on the courier’s website this should update with a reason for the delay in delivery. 

Should a parcel not be delivered on the first attempt a calling card should be left through your letterbox. This calling card is a small note detailing the failed delivery attempt which allows you to choose from a few options to ensure that the second delivery attempt is successful. You can choose to have the parcel left in a safe place (Usually a porch/secure area not in view of the public), returned to a local depot for collection or request for the driver to try with a neighbour. Please fill in the calling card correctly or complete the form online as soon as possible otherwise the driver is likely to attempt delivery the next working day. If you miss two attempted deliveries and do not respond to any calling cards left then the parcel will be returned back to us at head office. If you’re concerned for the whereabouts of your parcel please do not hesitate to contact our customer care team.

Our warehouse team take care when dispatching orders but occasionally your parcel can be damaged in transit. We recommend that when you receive your order, you carefully check the item(s) received. 

If you notice any problems with your order you should notify our customer care team as soon as possible quoting your tracking number, please also keep all packaging in case the parcel was tampered with as this may be required back to complete further investigations with the couriers.

We offer Express and Standard shipping to most countries. You will be shown an estimated delivery day during checkout. Shipping charges and times are subject to change. Express delivery may not be offered during sale periods. Express delivery does NOT guarantee or imply next-day delivery.

We calculate our delivery costs in line with our competitors and we select the best couriers appropriate to the shipping destination to ensure that you receive your items as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We are not responsible for any local sales tax or import duties that may arise at the delivery destination which are not included in the price of the products. These are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country and will be invoiced to you directly from the courier or an import broker which must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. 

Please note, we cannot control these charges, and cannot estimate what they would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. We recommend you contact your local customs office for current charges before you order to get an idea of the costs that may be incurred. 

If you prevent delivery of goods by failing to pay local customs, taxes or courier’s administration fee and your package is returned to us, any resulting return postage or courier’s administration fees incurred will be deducted from the amount refunded to you in respect of that order. 

GENERAL

All images, descriptions and prices are accurate and we aim to keep all information as accurate as possible, however, at times an error may occur. 

If for some reason, an item is purchased at the incorrect price it will be put on hold, and the option of placing a new order with the correct price or cancelling your order outright will be given. In circumstances where we are unable to contact you, the order will be automatically cancelled. 

We try to ensure that pictures of the items on the Website are as accurate as possible, but there are technical limitations and slight variations in colour and texture between the pictures and the items themselves must be expected.

Occasionally we receive two drops of products throughout the season however we can never guarantee that an item will be restocked online.

Alternatively, keep an eye on the website as it’s possible that the product may return back in stock if someone has recently purchased it and decided to return it to us.

Customer care is very important to us and we’ll respond to your queries as quickly as possible. Please check through these FAQs first. You can contact us via:

  • Email support@craftestan.co.uk or
  • Via our contact form

You’ll receive an automatic response to confirm this and to provide you with a ticket enquiry reference number. If you haven’t received an automatic reply then your email was not sent successfully and we recommend contacting us again.

Our customer care team will always respond to your queries as quickly as possible. During busy sale periods, there may be a slight delay on response times however these will always be advertised on the email confirmation receipt you receive once you’ve sent an email to our team. 

There are a number of reasons why you might not have received a response from our customer care team, we recommend you: 

– Check your spam settings and Junk folders in your inbox. Emails from our customer care team will always come from “support@craftestan.co.uk”.
– Check your account details are up-to-date on www.craftestan.co.uk If we can’t respond to your email we will try and contact you using your registered account details.
– Check you sent your email to customercare@craftestan.co.uk If you have sent the email successfully you should have received an automated response with a ticket enquiry number. If this hasn’t been received we recommend forwarding your enquiry on again to ensure it reaches a member of the team.

As a competitive online business, we adjust our pricing in response to fashion trends, stock and demand from our customers. It is our general view not to refund the difference as with all retailers this is the nature of the sale. It is ultimately very likely to happen with most of our products excluding continued pieces; as we move from one season to the next, however, it is down to the individual to run the risk of waiting for sales and promotions for their product to be sold out in the colour or size required. If the purchase was made within the last 14 working days please contact our customer care team who will be happy to advise you further.

Occasionally if your order contains an item that is unavailable at the point of packing, the rest of your order will be dispatched separately. In the event where an item you purchased is out of stock, an email will be sent to your registered email address as soon as practically possible confirming that a refund has been issued for this unavailable item. 

If you have placed separate orders at the same time these will arrive in separate parcels. We are unable to consolidate separate transactions into a single delivery, unfortunately. 

Please check the ‘Goods Return Document’ included with your order to confirm the item(s) that were delivered. 

After checking the parcel thoroughly, If you find something is missing please contact our customer care team and quote your order number, please also mention whether the parcel appeared to have been tampered with before delivery. 

The customer care team will begin an investigation as soon as possible which may involve checking CCTV, taken images, stock take on the product(s) in question, interviewing the courier’s driver and checking all avenues to determine how this has happened. Once this investigation process is complete then the team will do their best to resolve this for you

Unfortunately, once payment has been accepted, we cannot amend your order; this includes changing the size/colour of an item, removing an item, changing the delivery address or any payment method. 

Each order constitutes a separate transaction and we are not able to consolidate separate transactions into one single order or parcel. If you would like to order multiple items for delivery at the same time, you must ensure that all of these appear on the same order before you confirm and pay for your order. 

You have up to 30 minutes to cancel an order after it has been placed. To cancel your order please contact our customer care team and a member of the team will be able to assist. We will try to cancel the order at the head office prior to dispatch or with the couriers directly if possible, requesting that the goods be returned to us rather than delivered to yourself

All our products are advertised on-line without the VAT included. We do not want to increase the price of our products and have our customers incur further costs for VAT. Instead what we do is cover the costs at our end and swallow the costs within the UK. This also makes it easier for customers worldwide as the initial price you pay will always be the same as no VAT is added. Should you live in an area where your parcels are exempt from VAT such as Jersey or Guernsey you must understand that we are not able to reimburse or refund any costs to you as the VAT charges were not applied to your parcel originally.

You can redeem any discount codes issued by us during the checkout. Ensure you enter the code in ‘DISCOUNT CODE’ box at the payment stage of the checkout. Please note all discount codes are subject to individual terms and conditions.

Buying a Gift Voucher at Craftestan is simple. We offer two types of Gift Vouchers:

– E-Voucher – Sent via email, available in denominations of £10, valid for 12 months, redeemable online only.

You can redeem Craftestan Gift Vouchers online and in-store and Craftestan E-Vouchers online only. 

In order to redeem a Craftestan Gift Voucher or E-Voucher online select ‘Gift Voucher’ at the ‘Payment Method’ stage of the checkout.

Please note you have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the item(s) whilst they are in your possession and they are under your responsibility until they arrive at our warehouse. We recommend therefore that your item(s) are packaged securely to ensure they avoid damage in transit on return to us. 

On the ‘Delivery Note/Goods return’ sheet received with your order, mark clearly the returns code and request code against the item(s) you wish to refund / exchange. You can either write the codes on the dotted line to the right on each returned item or circle/tick/highlight the codes below. Peel off the returns address square label supplied only and affix it to the outside of the package. Place the rest of the completed sheet in the package with the item(s) you wish to return to us. 

We do not provide prepaid returns postage labels. We recommend you pay to return your item(s) by courier, recorded or special delivery. We also recommend you obtain and keep proof of postage in case you need it as evidence that you have returned the item(s) to us. The return address is listed below for your reference:

If we consider any item to have been used / worn / washed, have any original packaging missing or any item is returned to us in an unsatisfactory state, we may reject the return and refuse the request for a refund or exchange.

Please follow our returns policy when sending any unwanted items back to us but please note any orders being returned from outside the UK may need to be subject to further paperwork when handing the parcel over to a courier. Please make sure that the courier or postal company you choose to use are aware that the goods are of UK RETURN and were originally dispatched from your county. You may need to declare on further paperwork that your parcel is of GOODS RETURN. If the parcel is not highlighted as originally being exported from your county then it may end up stuck in customs and charges will become incorrectly applied to the goods. Unfortunately, the lengthy process to have parcels released due to us being exempt from these charges can often lead to the parcel being returned back to you the sender.

On receipt of your return, our customer care team will endeavour to issue a refund or exchange and notify you within 7 working days of receipt. In the event that 10 working days have passed since we signed for your returned order, please contact our customer care team quoting any tracking or reference numbers related to your returned item(s). 

Please note we recommend you pay for a recorded or tracked service with a courier or local post office and obtain and keep proof of postage in case you need it as evidence that you have returned the item(s) to us.
