  • Direct Credit
    Payment via direct credit (Telephone Banking, Internet Banking or Bank Deposit) into our bank account (Designscape Concepts Limited T/A Designscape Art & Craft) is always welcome, however you will need to ensure that you use your online Order ID (generated after checkout) as a deposit reference so we know who the payment is from and what it is for.

  • Paypal ( non credit card funded paypal only - if you wish to purchase from us using your credit card, please choose our secure credit card payment option )
    The Paypal payment service is available to many countries in the world, including New Zealand. If you choose this payment method you will recieve a confirmation email after checkout, containing the registered Paypal email address to use for making payment. If you are purchasing goods to be shipped to outside New Zealand, please wait for us to send you a quote and / or a Paypal invoice. You will need to ensure that you use your online Order ID (generated after checkout) as a deposit reference so we know who the payment is from and what it is for.

  • Cheques
    We can accept cheques by prior arrangement only and special conditions may apply.

  • Gift Vouchers
    Gift Vouchers purchased at face value through the Designscape Art & Craft website are redeemable against goods and shipping costs. If the value of your purchases are the same or less than the value of the vouchers being redeemed, simply choose the Cheque / Voucher payment option and post your vouchers to the address provided. If the value of your purchases exceeds the value of the vouchers being redeemed, you may either pay for the goods in full using your credit card then have the value of the vouchers refunded when they are received by us, or you may pay the difference by Direct Credit or Cheque.

  • Free Gift Vouchers

  2. you are in the possession of your card at the time of ordering and you have not misplaced the card, nor has the card been stolen or cancelled.

  3. you have sufficient funds on the card quoted in order to complete the purchase.

If you choose to order online, you will be sent an automatically generated email to notify that we have received your order. This notice does not guarantee that the order is confirmed or approved.

Delivery Information
Some products including special order items, Majacraft spinning wheels or custom products may have delayed delivery times. If your order is required for a special event, or to ensure the best possible fulfillment on your order, we recommend that you call or email us to reserve the products you require. Our Customer Service Representatives are available to discuss payment options with you and they will advise on delivery timeframes.

At our discretion, we may choose not to deliver to a Post Office box or any address which we deem to be suspicious. If goods are being shipped to a person or address that is not the same as the cardholder and credit card billing address, we may contact you for security purposes.

Your order will be despatched within 2 business days of payment being received, unless your order is a special order item in which case this will be discussed with you via phone or email prior to processing. Your order should take 2-5 days to be couriered to you providing stock is available at the time of ordering. We will inform you immediately of any delays. The entire time between your payment being received and your order being delivered should take no longer than 7 days. If you have left a birthday or gift purchase to the last minute and would like your order to be prioritised, please note this in the special instructions field so we can escalate the processing of your order and despatch via an urgent shipping method. Please note that urgent shipping may incur additional costs, which you will be notified of prior to despatch. Please refer to our Shipping Page for further details.

Designscape Art & Craft orders are always despatched using reputable delivery companies and couriers with strict delivery policies and schedules, and customers will be advised when orders are despatched and wherever possible tracking information provided. It is very rare for things to go missing, however if you are concerned that this may have happened, simply send us an email with your order number and we will immediately follow up with the delivery company involved.

Should you feel that your goods do not arrive in good condition, don’t hesitate to let us know, we do not sell products with damaged packaging without first advising you of this, so if your items arrive in damaged packaging we need to know about this. When signing for packages please check the small print as to what you are signing, some courier tickets have in small print “received in good order and condition”, which when signed would void any later claim for damage. In these circumstances, either ask the courier to wait while you open and inspect the goods or simply write ‘subject to inspection’. It is important that goods are opened and inspected promptly after delivery, as most courier companies have tight limitations on claims after delivery. We do not accept responsibility for Customs charges or duty, or Customs handling of goods.

If your order requires your signature on delivery, you must be available to receive your order in person when it arrives. If your unavailability leads to the deliverable goods being returned to us, then all shipment costs will be payable by you. We are not responsible for loss or damage to goods that are delivered to an address which has been supplied incorrectly.

Returns and Refunds
Please choose carefully as we are not obliged to accept returns or exchanges on products purchased through our website other than for faulty goods. Returns or exchanges on non faulty goods will be at our discretion. Exchanges for another size or colour will be accepted where available by prior arrangement. Exchanges or returns where you have simply changed your mind or the goods are not suitable will be accepted if the goods are in unused condition and in original packaging, however at our discretion this may incur a 15% restocking fee.

For broken or damaged goods, please phone or email us and whenever possible, we will repair or replace any damaged or faulty goods, providing the damage is not caused through misuse. If repair or replacement is not possible, a full refund will be issued for the value of the damaged or faulty goods. If the goods have been damaged by the delivery company, please ensure you retain all packaging and take good photographs of the damage and packaging if possible. If it is obvious on receipt that the packing is damaged, we highly recommend inspection of the goods before signing for them. In the event of damage in transit, a claim for compensation from the delivery company will be lodged, and once the damage has been investigated and the claim accepted we will repair or replace the damaged goods or if the goods are no longer available. If repair or replacement is not possible, a full refund will be issued for the value of the damaged or faulty goods.

In any event, all returns, whatever the reason, must be by prior arrangement. Please contact us and you will be issued with a Return Authorisation reference which must be included with your return.

Unfortunately, your postage charges on returns are not refundable.

International Customers
International Customers, please be aware that any customs charges or conditions applicable in your state/ locality/ or country are your responsibility. Any customs duties, sales taxes and other regulatory charges are payable by the purchaser.
