We use Stripe to process credit card payments. Your credit card will be charged as soon as you check out because it's simply not possible for us to delay payment until your items are shipped. However, we manufacture your order and ship it as quickly as possible so there are usually only a few days between the time you place your order and when we ship it.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your order or when you will receive it. We're a small company, but we do our best to be responsive and available to help you.
