1  How long will I have to wait to receive the BJD I just ordered?
This is the most commonly asked question we get. Here are the facts:
When we order dolls from the various Korean/Chinese companies, the best we can do is estimate a shipping time. Due to the fluctuating volume of orders these companies get each month, it is impossible to know exactly how long it will take to produce the dolls and get them shipped to us. Most of the BJD companies are very small and BJDs are mostly made by hand. It is impossible for us to notify every customer with an update when we hardly get any information from the companies as it is. And if they spent all their time notifying us of changes, they would never have time to complete our orders!
When we give you an estimate of how long it should take to get your doll in, it is based on the time frame of past orders that we have received over the last few months. This is not an exact science. Some manufacturers ship to us about 10-12 weeks from the time we place the order with them. However, some take as long as 16-24 weeks, some even longer. These manufacturers do the best they can to get our orders shipped promptly. I can tell you that once we have the dolls in hands, we ship within 24 hours of receiving final payment.
2  Hello. I'm really interested in buying a doll on this website. I live in germany and I'd like to know how much shipping I habe to pay. By the way, thank you for selling dolls in Europe, the extra costs that I had to pay were really awful.
Hi, the shipping with tracked and sign for courier for a doll from me to Germany is $33, no extra customs charges or anything hidden, thanks for your kind words x
3  Will I get my doll faster if I order it without face up?
It will take the same amount of time. Your "no face up" doll may be ready faster but the whole shipment is sent together with all the dolls with face ups. They all arrive at the same time.
4  What if I order something and decide I don't like the colour or style? Can I return it?
A. RETURNS for full refund are offered for damaged merchandise only. We will accept exchanges or will issue a store credit for other items returned within 15 days of purchase for the amount of the item less shipping charges plus you pay for the item's return. We must receive the item in new condition. FINAL SALE - NO RETURN applies to ALL layaways or preorders. NO EXCEPTIONS.
5  How do I know that you got my order?
You will receive a confirmation of your order via email within a few minutes of successfully submitting an order.
6  Will it speed things along if I call or email every week requesting a status update?
We do understand that you very anxious to get your order and have put down a deposit or paid in full for it. Waiting isn't easy. Believe me, we get excited about shipments arriving too! However, we get no updates from the manufacturers until the shipment is packed and ready to be sent to us. So there really are no updates until this time.
7  How will I know when my item has shipped?
If we have your correct email address (please double check it when you submit your order), our shipping service will automatically send you an email that your order is on the way.
8  Will my BJD face up look exactly like the photo of the doll on the web site?
No. Each doll is hand painted. The artists are very professional, talented and experienced but the face up cannot be exactly duplicated. This is something we have no control over and are not responsible for.
9  Does the green tick that appears on the picture of some items mean that item is in stock?
Hi, Yes the green tick signifies the item is held in stock and can be shipped quickly, I hope this helps
