Orders & Payment
I aim to dispatch stock items within 24 hours of an order being placed and always use a Royal Mail First Class postal service however, when an item is ‘made to order’ please allow 10 – 14 days delivery time. Should you need a piece for a specific date, please do let me know and I will make a concerted effort to fulfil your order sooner, however this is not able to be guaranteed.
Online purchases are processed using PayPal Checkout, an established, quick and secure online payment system. Once payment has been authorised, you will receive notification of your order via e-mail.
For multiple purchases payment may also be made via a bank transfer if preferred. Please contact me with your order and I will issue my bank details to you.
Orders cannot be dispatched until paid for in full in advance, including any additional or specific postage costs.
Before beginning to make a unique commission Charlotte Biba Bouchard requires a non-refundable deposit of 50% in order to cover the costs of starting the making process.
The rest of the payment is required before the piece is dispatched.
