FAQ & Site Info
Yes, in most cases secondary shipping is less expensive on patterns. Generally, the cost for first pattern is listed first and with another item second: ~ Canada $2.20 $1.25 ~ ~ United States $3.40 $2.50+ ~ ~ Everywhere Else $6.75 $4.95+ ~ Canada Post increased their prices on March 31, 2014 and changed their fee structure making it more difficult to give a secondary shipping cost. If you would like a more accurate shipping cost before you order please contact me and I will be happy to weigh your order. Overages will be refunded. Some patterns are heavier and will be higher to ship, I try to make a note of this in that listing. Large orders are likely to be less for shipping than what is calculated as it assumes all patterns are the same weight where some are generally lighter. I do refund excess shipping charges of more than $1 to your payment account.
I ship the pattern from Ontario, Canada and use Canada Post. Most single patterns are sent letter mail and multiple patterns are sent either light packet or small packet depending on weight and thickness.
From Monday to Friday I ship within 24 hours of payment being made, orders made on the weekend will ship on Monday and you can expect to receive your order in the following times: ~ Canada 2 to 10 business days ~ ~ United States 4 to 12 business days ~ ~ International 4 to 12 business days ~ These times are delivery standards set out by the post office. I ship quickly but cannot control delays caused by postal service or customs. Please contact me if you are concerned about your order and I'll do what I can to determine the delay.
I am fairly new to eCrater but not new to selling online. I have had a pattern shop on Etsy, by the same name, for over 3 years with more than 2000 sales and many happy customers :)
I ship worldwide and have entered countries that I have most often shipped to. If shipping for your country is not listed please contact me and I would be happy to add it.
