Plushie Commission Info

PAYMENT METHOD & FEES

I am only accepting payment through paypal or money order.

For money orders... please make sure that it is in canadian dollars. If you are not coming from canada, I would suggest an international money order.

For paypal, there is sadly a fee that is charged. These fees are 2.9%+ 0.30$. For example, a 40$ plushie would have a fee of 1.46$. (40X0.029=1.16$ 1.16+0.30=1.46$). This is NOT a fee to transfer money from paypal to a bank account; it's a transaction fee that's placed each time a money request/invoice is sent. In the past, I let it slide, but I then realised that it really adds up! I could include the extra fee into the plushie price, but then it wouldn't be fair for those sending a money order who have to pay for postage anyways. Therefore, I'm being transparent with the breakdown, so that the commissioner knows what they're paying for.

IMPORTANT: If you are paying in deposit (first half upfront, second half when the commission is complete), there are TWO fees since it's calculated per transaction.


SHIPPING COST

Chibi plushies will be sent at a flatrate of 10$CAD for regular airmail to the USA. Canadian and International orders will be specifically calculated. Since chibis are sturdier than my other plushies, they will be packaged in bubble-wrap mailer enveloppes (so the shipping cost includes the packaging).

If you are ordering more than one chibi plushie, shipping will be calculated accordingly. Also, if you insist on having a tracking number (regular airmail does not include one), I can arrange sending it through a different method but bear in mind that it is more expensive.

For the other types of plushies, there are 4 types of shipping (all through Canadapost):

Regular airmail to the USA does not have a tracking system and has no insurance. Once the plushie is sent, it is no longer my responsibility. Therefore, choose your shipping method wisely! Up to date, I have only had one case of a lost parcel and it was to Saudi Arabia (I was only informed afterwards through fedex's site that plushies were prohibited items!!) All my USA/Canada parcels have arrived safely through regular airmail.

All Canadian orders include tracking. Any parcel sent to Quebec/Ontario will arrive in 3~4 business days, and the cost for one plushie is around 10$. Shipping out west or to the maritimes is usually more expensive.
