♡ Shipping

• Where do you ship from?

I ship all packages from Albany NY, USA ♥

• How much is your shipping?

Shipping is calculated at the time of checkout. Depending on your country and what you have ordered the price will vary. You can see the cost of shipping by adding everything you want to your cart and going through the process. It will show you the total cost before asking for any payment.

• Do you except international orders?

Yes I do! I ship worldwide ♥ All shipping prices have already been configured. If you would like to see how much shipping is before you buy. Add an item(s) to your cart and then click " Checkout " To see how much your total order would be before purchasing ♥ NOTE ♥ I unfortunately do not ship to countries; Mexico, Brazil & Chile due to previous issues of me shipping out to these countries. I apologize for the inconvience and I hope you understand~ ♥

•  How long until my order arrives?

I ship from Menands, New York. International orders do not have tracking, and typically take 2-12 weeks to arrive. USA Residents: 3 to 8 days Canada Residents: Typically 5 to 12 days

Overseas/International: 2 - 12 weeks

N O T E ♥ USPS is pretty good at getting international orders to there destinations at a timely fashion so far. My average international, non north american shipments have gotten to their new homes in about 8 - 10 days.

N O T E ♥ Unfortunately after very many unsuccessful attempts to ship items with several different shipping methods I had to make the difficult decision to stop shipping to certain destinations altogether. These countries include Mexico, Brazil, and Chile. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Thank you for understanding ♥

• When do you usually ship packages?

I usually send out packages on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays. All packages are sent via USPS Flat Rate. Both domestic & international.

I do not ship packages out on Major Holidays.

• Do you do combined Shipping?

No. I do not do combined shipping. Combined shipping is entirely too time consuming. Nowadays with the amount of orders I receive it is just too much. I hope you can understand this, thank you ♥

• How do you price your international Shipping?

When it comes to how I price international shipping it included all taxes, fees & duties that have to be paid in order for you to get your goods ♥ Each country/province has their own unique tax laws & regulations to receive and hence my shipping is curated to take care of them. What I find unfortunate is that alot of independent business owners like myself do not or have not added the cost of taxes, fees, and duties for international shipping. They end up taking a financial hit due to having to pay those fees without charging the customer correctly & after a long run end up in a financial deficit because they're shipping isn't correct. ( Q ~ Q )

• Can you please mark my order as a "gift" for customs and put the value as $15 USD?

I completely understand the issue of international customs fees but @ chenxira my policy is to always be accurate and honest. Lying about value within customs is a serious offense + it puts me at risks of incurring fines and worse. Custom fees, Duties & Taxes are already covered within my international shipping fee, so theirs really no need to ask for this.

• My Package isnt here? What do i do?

Please contact your local post office first! I provide tracking on all domestic orders, so please follow the progress there! Most likely there was a hiccup in the provided address or for some reason the post is holding onto it. If a package is returned to me due to an incorrect address, I can resend it as long as a shipping fee is covered. Here is the reshipment fee you need ♥

• C.O.V.I.D♡19 Shipping Updates

The COVID-19 plandemic has caused significant delays in transit both domestic & worldwide. USPS has stated the following pretaining to all estimated timed regarding Flat Rate Shipping. [ Moth Popular shipping method I use ] USA/Domestic - 7 to 15 day International - 10 to 35 day Due to anticipated high volume of orders, please allow up to 4 weeks from order placement date for your to ship. Although it is highly unlikely it will take this long to prepare and ship your order, I like to put up a disclaimer for transpareny. With the nonsense of the plandemic, there is always the above time to be a possibility. I will happily provide order status updates if requested via email~ ♡ I am very sorry for the delays and ask for your patience and understanding in this situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding under these exceptional conditions.

♡ Returns & Refunds

• What if I want to cancel my order?

If you order has not been shipped, contact me and I will refund you. Orders that have already been shipped cannot be canceled.

• What is your return/exchange policy?

I currently do not offer returns.

All sales are final.

I do offer refunds/exchanges if I, the owner am the cause of a mishap or mistake, i.e items you received are damaged or are different from what you ordered.

♡ Lost Package

• I accidentally added the wrong address and the tracking info says "returning to sender" What now?

Oh goodness! ( Q ~ Q ) With issues like these, the only thing that can be done is wait until I receive your item and then ( if you still desire the goodies ) you have to pay my reshipment fee to re-receive your item. During the checkout please be sure to enter your correct address so this hiccup wont happen again! ( > x < ) N O T E Pertaining to returning packages, USPS doesn't see them as a priority since the original shipping cost and postage went to sending the package out to you. So returning it to me can take a few days to a few weeks or months. For example: I had a customer that entered an old address and it took about 1 month for me to receive the returning package ( Q ~ Q ) Again ♥ Please make sure your address is correct during checkout so all can be as right as rain ♥

• My package has been lost! What do I do now ?

Oh no! ( Q ~ Q ) Im so very sorry your package has been lost or stolen! I apologize greatly for that! I am not responsible for lost of stolen packages.

Enamel Pins: A month or so Tees / Apparel: 2 Weeks NOTE ♥ The time explained above represents the time for my manufacturers shipments to arrive to me. Not the shipping time for both processing + sending you your order. For Example: I ordered about 3 enamel pin designs from a manufacturer I had worked with for some time. About 2 weeks had pasted after I paid for my pins and I had not gotten any answers or reply's from them. Long Story short I waited over 3 months to get my pins from them. If a situation like that were to happen to me again ( which i HOPE never does! ) I will be keeping you informed about all changes pertaining to the matter.

♡ Restocks

• Will sold out designs be restocked?

Mostly all of my merchandise designs are limited releases, meaning they are not restocked once sold out! I prefer to keep designs limited so they can remain unique and exclusive. Be sure to follow me on my Instagram so you can always see my new designs and snag them before their sold out!

♡ General Questions

• Where is my order?

As stated in the about page, chenxira is a single person run shop and depending on the number of orders I get and what not it can take about a few days to even a month just to get through all the orders. For example: This summer my shop received over 400+ orders. With me being a one women show, to ensure quality, my cute aesthetics, hand writen notes & making sure the orders are correct takes time. I try my very best to send out updates pretaining to your order(s) If there are any complications of any sort pertaining to your order, you will be informed immediately! I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages.Please understand that packages are out of my control once they are in USPS hands. Therefore, all shipping charges are strictly nonrefundable.

• Why do you need my phone number in the order info?

Though my most preferred method of reaching out to all customers is email, there have also been situations in which I had to call a customer about there order(s). Also, international shipping custom forms also require phone numbers for there carriers to reach you [ the customer ]. Not all countries are like this but quite a few are. If and when a phone call is made to you, I will be polite and sweet as organic honey~ ♥ I also hope you do the same ( > w < )

♡ Pin Grading

Quick note about Pin Grading

Pin grading is subjective and varies from maker to maker. Since enamel pins are handmade items, they rarely, if ever, will appear 'perfect'. Ive kept this in mind while creating my grading scale! * Here is a grading chart that Ive created for anyone to check out on how I grade my pins * I will always do my best to send out the best pins available! ♡ If there is a major issue, please send photos and an explanation of your problem with the form above so I can help ( =0 w <= )

Standard/A Grade ♥ Pins

Though I feel my pin manu(s) have done amazing jobs when making pins for me, the highest quality of pin that I offer is free of major imperfections, but may exhibit the following *minor* imperfections: • Superficial marks or scratches on metal or enamel surface • Superficial specks, dots, or bubbles on enamel • Slightly low or uneven fills • Imperfections on the back or side of pin • Slight darker flecks of glitter and/or small specks of stray glitter (on glitter pins) • Slightly misaligned screenprinting (on screenprinted pins) • Other superficial imperfections that are only visible upon very close-up inspection and/or from looking at the pin under certain lighting or from a specific angle. • Slight changes in shade(s) of pantone coloring ( Colors a slightly lighter or darker ) ♥ If you have any more questions please dont hesitate to reach out to me using the contact page above.

Second/B Grade ♥ Pins

Seconds pins have one or multiple defects exhibited below: • Noticeable smudges and/or staining on the metal or enamel surface • Oxidization of the metal • Noticeable and/or deep scratches that span across the metal and/or enamel • Very low fills in larger or visually important areas • Slightly loose posts/backings • Though I feel my manu does a BOMB job at making my pins look amazing! I do not offer Perfect/Collector's Grade pins, sorry! ( => x <= )

Pin Remakes & Restocks

Its always nice to restock and remake my most popular enamel pin designs. Even though I try my best to make sure that my pin manufacturers make the best product and ensuring high quality. I cannot control if the same exact methods will be used to create the same product from the past ( i.e make the pin exactly the same from before ). My pin manufacturers ( both new and old ) have different techniques and even different pantone colors and more when creating pins. The pin manufacturers who made my enamel pins from 2017 - 2019 are no longer the same or in use. Hence I can not promise that the pins will turn out exactly the same from the past. Please also understand that enamel pins are handmade products, and will never be Collectors Grade and "perfect". Thank you guys for your understanding ♡

♡ Codes. Offers & Inventory

♡ Codes. Offers & Inventory

♡ Only one code may be used per order. ♡ Codes cannot be applied to orders retroactively. ♡ Please keep in mind that it is possible for items in your car to be sold out. ♡ Advertised deals and inventory are "while supplies last"

♡ Holiday Season Delivery Times
