Notice 30/03/2017
Dear customers,
as the number of orders has been increasing over the last few months, we also noticed an increasing number of mistakes in addresses and even names! The address is the MOST important part of your order. If you give us the wrong address you will NOT receive the order and we will NOT issue any refunds.

Therefore:
- Check your details when creating an account and before ordering any beads, etc.
- Correct any spelling mistakes.
- Capitalise the letters that need to be capitalised.
- Check your house number is correct
- Ensure that the country is correct! It is easy to mistake Malta for Malawi or Switzerland for Swaziland when tapping on a tablet or mobile phone!

If you notice a mistake after you place an order, inform us immediately!! Do not wait!! We only see the details at the time the order is placed and sometimes we post orders within 1 or two hours!

Frequently asked questions
My order didn't arrive. What shall we do?

The Irish postal services (Anpost) only assume that a package is missing if it is not delivered within 30 days. Since we have no way of tracking and speeding up postal services, we will only offer a full refund of the purchase price or send the order again (if the products are still in stock) if an order is not received within 30 days after the dispatch date. We fully abide with EU consumer protection law which states that you are entitled to a full refund if you don't receive the item within 30 days.

A re-delivery attempt to a different address is possible against a charge. No refund will be given if the order fails to arrive within 30 days after the second delivery attempt.

Please visit: https://www.kolibribeads.com/en/postage.html

How long does it take for my order to arrive?

We keep most items in stock. Unless otherwise stated, all orders are sent within 2 working days (Saturdays and Sundays not included) and are generally delivered within the timeframe below (following dispatch):

Postal deliveries within Ireland and Northern Ireland: 1 - 3 workdays
Postal deliveries to the rest of Europe: 5 (Germany, Malta, UK, Belgium, Holland...) and 10 workdays (Italy, France Spain, Greece, Gibraltar...)
Postal deliveries to the rest of the world: up to 30 days, depends on the country (USA/Canada should take between 5 - 12 days)

Yes you can return a product within 14 days but you have to let us know first.
