I am very excited to announce that I can now offer various payment plans to clients making orders for custom jewelry! By making use of subscriptions, a feature built into WordPress (the platform my website and store is built around) it is now possible to break your order up into bite size weekly or monthly automatic payments. This works like any other subscription based service online, and only needs to be set up once. Plans will be for a specific duration of time so as not to over or under charge. From you account dashboard you can keep track of your payments, cancel at any time, update shipping and billing info, and see previous orders.
With lead times 6-8 weeks on average, consider spreading your total across that time frame! To give you an example of what that looks like. Say your order is $300. If you broke that up across 6 payments each week, that is only $50 a week, or $37.50 at 8 weeks! Or monthly, three months at $100.
Not only is this a great way to get that dream pair of stone plugs. This is a new practical way for you to save! That’s right, you don’t have to be ready to place an order. Perhaps you know that you would like to sometime in the near future but have a hard time setting aside what you need. With subscriptions, you can accumulate a credit with Stone Soup Lapidary that can be applied directly to your order! Because a registered account is required to take advantage of payments, you will have access to a dashboard that tracks all of your payments, orders, shipping, and billing information!
The Fine Print: Being able to offer payments in this way is a a privilege I am able to make available to clients. Due the nature of being a very small business, and payments being an advantage to you when ordering, all payments received are NON-REFUNDABLE. Subscriptions/Payments can be cancelled at any time with no penalties. After cancelling a subscription prematurely, all payments made will be considered credit on your account for 6 months for when you are ready to order.
Please, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns with this new avenue for ordering, leaving us a comment! I’d love to have feed back.
