Delivery and payment
Dispatch delay: Please note that due to a very high number of orders we cannot currently guarantee same day delivery. We aim to dispatch all orders within 5 working days, please accept our apologies for the delay.
COVID19 update: We are open as usual - Pelenna Patchworks is a family run, home based business and not open to the public. We are using the Royal Mail for all deliveries (picked up from us so no mixing with the general public).
Please note that in some areas post is running slower than usual due to high volumes so please be patient if your order takes longer than usual to arrive, especially overseas orders.
INTERNATIONAL POSTING: We have now reinstated international posting - please be aware that there are delays in the system so your order may take longer than usual to arrive.
PLEASE NOTE - if you have any problems during the payment procedure, please telephone us on 01639 898444. If you have selected any of the payment options we will have your order on file, and we can process payment over the telephone.
Frequently Asked Questions:
We accept payment online or by telephone. After giving your address details at the checkout you can then choose your preferred method of payment - details given below.
If you have a Paypal account and would like to use this to pay, simply choose the pay by Paypal option at the checkout to be taken to the Paypal server, and complete your payment details. Choosing the Paypal button from the shopping basket will take you to the Paypal Express checkout so you don't have to enter your contact details twice.
If you have received a gift voucher code or discount code, you can use it by simply entering the code into the 'coupon/voucher' box in the shopping basket, then press 'update basket'. If you decide not to use it on your order you can just press the dustbin icon next to it before proceeding with payment and the code will be removed and can be used another time.
You do not need to create an account to shop with us, you can checkout as a guest, ideal if you are only likely to be making a single order with us. However, if you are likely to make more than one order, creating an account will mean your name and address details will be stored, as well as all your previous orders, and you can start accruing loyalty points to get money off future orders. You can also log in at any time to check the progress of your orders, and create wishlists that can be shared with family and friends (great for gift ideas).
