How to Read our Invoices

Prepayments and Invoice payments will appear on your invoice together with the date and payment means (CK...check; MC...MasterCard; etc.). After your products are shipped to you, normally on the weekend, we will process an invoice. This invoice will apply your exisiting prepayment, thus lowering your balance accordingly for the items which were shipped to you. If your prepayments exceed the cost of the goods shipped to you, you will have a credit balance and this will be noted on your invoice. Thereafter as goods are shipped to you, a new invoice will be generated. Any remaining credit balance will be used up first, and when this is exceeded, a balance due will begin to appear.

Please keep all the invoices you receive from us, for this paper trail will help explain the state of your account.

Other Important Policies

There are times when our suppliers discontinue fabric lines. This is something we do not have control over. The Holy Rood Guild reserves the right to make substitutions for fabrics or materials when necessary.

Prices are subject to change without notice.
