************************************************

UNDELIVERABLE AS ADDRESSED - If the address you provided is not correct or the recipient no longer resides at the address provided and your order is returned to us, your order will be canceled and you will receive a refund for the price of the candle(s) minus the shipping cost. You can repurchase the item(s) if you would like.

DELIVERED TO AN INCORRECT/OLD/OUTDATED ADDRESS - We cannot be responsible for items delivered to an incorrect/old/outdated address. If you provide an outdated/incorrect address and the item is either successfully delivered to that address (showing as "delivered" in the tracking information) or is lost in the mail (not returned to us) we unfortunately cannot provide a refund nor can we send another item to you free of charge. Bottom line: PLEASE BE SURE TO UPDATE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS WITH ETSY (AND PAYPAL) IF YOU MOVE!

DELAYS IN DELIVERY - We have no control over the operations or the expediency of the United States Postal Service (the service that we use to ship our candles). If there is a delay in the delivery of a package due to unforeseen circumstances (weather delays, etc.) or for reasons unknown during transit, we cannot be held responsible and cannot accept any returns for custom candles that may be delivered after their promised delivery date.

LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES - If you suspect your package to be missing, please do ask your carrier, your local post office and your household members/neighbors to see if they mistakenly received your order or have any useful information. If you have no luck in locating your package, and the tracking information indicates that it was successfully delivered to your correct address, please contact us immediately.

DAMAGED ITEMS - Each candle leaves our studio in perfect condition and is carefully packaged in a sturdy mailer tube with a "fragile" sticker to protect it during its travels. However, occasionally the US Postal System does not handle packages with care. If your candle arrives in a damaged condition, please contact us immediately. Do not throw the candle or packaging away - we will ask you to take a photo (or two) of the damaged candle AND package to send to us so that we can file a claim with USPS. Upon receipt of the photos, we will send you another candle. Due to the high cost of shipping, we will not ask you to return the damaged candle to us.

CUSTOMS FEES & TAXES for INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS - Due to the nature of international online sales, buyers are responsible for knowing and paying the fees and taxes associated with buying goods from outside of their country. Because every country has different laws and taxes, we are not able to calculate, charge, or pay for those fees and/or taxes. Therefore, these fees and/or taxes are not included in our prices or in our shipping fees and are the sole responsibility of the customer to pay. If a customer fails to pay duties and/or taxes/fees levied by their country, their package will be returned to us. Upon receipt of the package, we will provide a refund for the original purchase price MINUS the original shipping fee.

CONTACT US - If you think your order may not have arrived, you gave an incorrect address, you need to cancel your order, or aren't happy with your order for whatever reason; we ask that you contact us first before opening claims with PayPal or Etsy. Why? Because we prefer to provide you with the best customer service possible without third party interference.
Payment
We happily accept Paypal and Visa/Mastercard via Direct Checkout.
Shipping
HOW LONG FROM PLACEMENT OF ORDER TO SHIPPING DAY? -
As all our items are made to order, they may require extra time and will ship upon completion. Items will generally ship within 3-4 weeks of receipt of order (excluding weekends and postal holidays) provided there are no questions regarding style, mailing address, or other delay due to additional communication between seller and buyer. Seasonal variations to shipping times may apply during the months of November, December, January, May, and June.

If you are paying by eCheck, there is a waiting time of about 5 - 7 business days after the payment has been sent/received before we can ship since this method of payment must be "cleared."

If you need your item(s) ASAP, just send us a message and we will see what we can do to expedite your order. :-)

SHIP TO - We ship to the address that is on file for you with Etsy, or to the address you provide during checkout (if you would like your package to be sent to an address other than the one on file). If you have multiple addresses on accounts (PayPal vs Etsy) please do confirm your order has the address to which you want the package to ship. If you need the package to go to a different address than you submitted with your order, please include that address in comments at check-out. Also, if you would like to add signature confirmation to your delivery, just let us know and we can add it to your shipping costs (usually $2.00 additional charge).

SHIPPING CARRIER - We ship to the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. We use the US postal service as our primary carrier. US orders ship via Priority Mail...international orders ship via USPS First Class international mail.

SHIPPING COSTS - The shipping costs that we charge are based on the weight and size of the candles/items. We do not make a profit on shipping. We use Etsy's "calculated shipping" so that your cost is accurate for your location. If, by chance Etsy charges you too much, we will refund the difference.

HOW LONG TO ARRIVE? - US orders will most likely arrive within 2-3 days the date that we mail your package; holidays and Sundays will extend the transit time. International orders will vary on arrival time, depending on the expediency of your country's postal system and customs. Etsy's automatic reminder system should provide a tracking number when we mark your package shipped. If you have not received shipping notification, just let us know and we can provide you with Tracking Number.

SHIPPING CANDLES IN HOT WEATHER - If we ship your candle during hot weather, please be aware that your candle may be affected by extended exposure to temperatures of 85 degrees or higher. Mail trucks are not air conditioned. Additionally, if your package is left in a hot mailbox or in a hot location (doorstep in direct sun, for example), your candle may be adversely affected. You will receive a tracking number with an expected delivery date once your package has been shipped, so please keep an eye out for it if ordering during the summer months so you can retrieve it quickly if it is left in a hot location by your postal carrier. Even though orders are insured via Priority Mail, USPS will not reimburse us for melted candles, so Go Saint Yourself cannot be held responsible for candles damaged by melting. Please order at your own risk if you are shipping your candle to a hot location.

We step away from our shop for vacation throughout the year. We will have a notification of this in our shop announcement, and will inform you personally that we are out of the shop with an email message when you place an order. On very rare occasions we may not have Internet access for a day or two. A good policy for all buyers with a time-sensitive order is to contact us via a Convo as soon as your order is placed.
Additional policies and FAQs
COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARK - Images that we use in our designs are images that are in the public domain, are considered free use, labeled "for use with modification" or are under "creative commons" licenses. Unintentional use of anything trademarked or copyrighted is something that we want to avoid in all cases.

IMAGES FOR CUSTOM ITEMS - Images submitted to us for use in custom items are the responsibility of the customer with regard to legal usage rights of said images. We reserve the right to use designs that are created using photos provided by our customers for promotional purposes (including photos in our listings, on our Facebook and Twitter pages) unless otherwise requested by the customer.

HAND-CREATED - All of the items for sale in our shop are designed and created by us with great care in our smoke-free studio. We take utmost pride in our work and will not take short-cuts that lessen the quality of our designs and workmanship; We do reserve the right to improve upon a design which may not be shown in the listing. We reserve the right to sell custom designs previously requested by customers at a different price.

NOTE ABOUT CANDLES: The candles we use are purchased from a wholesale candle supplier and are made in the USA. While we choose the best we can find, each candle has its own imperfections and each is completely unique. Thus, the candles themselves may vary in characteristics. In short, the candles may not be perfect, but our designs are! This popular style of prayer candle can burn for up to eighty hours depending on the environment. As the candle eventually burns lower, you may need a longer match/lighter to reach the wick. NEVER leave a burning candle unattended and keep your candle out of reach of children and pets.

CONCERNS / FILING A CLAIM - If you should have an issue with something you purchased PLEASE contact us. We find it more effective to resolve any concerns first hand with you - it's probably more efficient that way, too! You can contact us at via a convo through Etsy or at GoSaintYourself [!at] gmail.com.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEED - If you're not happy with your order, please let us know! We strive to make quality designs and will never sell you a design we would not personally gift to a friend or family member of our own! If you feel your purchase is substandard or find a flaw PLEASE contact us prior to posting public feedback as we take great pride in our workmanship and customer service and will do our best to either replace your candle or issue you a refund.
