I ship items once a week, that day is: FRIDAY.

All packages are shipped First-Class Mail unless otherwise specified. If you would like a package faster, contact me and we can figure what the extra cost will be for you and I'll send along a PayPal invoice.

All pads are pre-washed to maximize absorbency and all goodies come from a cat-friendly, smoke free home.

All listed products have been created and are ready to be shipped. What I have listed is what I have for sale. All items are sold first come first serve, I will no longer be reserving listings.

ATTENTION: Please double check that your ETSY address is accurate! -- This goes for all customers, but especially if you are an international customer. Changing address' from domestic to international will take much longer on my end because Etsy has to do it for me. I am not currently able to change the shipping forms for international orders. So not only will you have to be invoiced for the extra shipping costs, it has the potential to delay the shipment of your package for several days. Save us all some time and ensure your ETSY address is accurate.

About

C-Pop Commodities

C-Pop Commodities sprang from my desire to share the fabulous-ness that are cloth menstrual pads with the world. I originally made cloth pads for myself, family and friends. But at my friends fervent urging, I decided to commit all my free time to creating cloth pads (and cloth pad accessories) and opened up my shop here on Etsy! It's a one woman show over here, but 4 years later and I still love making cloth pads! From designing my original pattern, to picking out new prints, to sew, sew, sewing every single pad, putting together every package, and that accomplished feeling after dropping them all off at the post office. Packages I know are made with love and are headed off to happy customers, who will (hopefully) have happier periods.

Learning about alternative menstrual products revolutionized my menstruating life. I hope my cloth pads can do the same for others. It makes me so happy to hear that my cloth pads help other people feel that same comfort, empowerment and peace of mind that I gained when I became a reusable menstrual product user.

C-Pop Commodities is the second job I never knew would become a full time gig. It's the job I somehow manage to squeeze into the rest of my life. But I also occasionally manage to squeeze in time for my other crafty hobbies too, like sewing things other than cloth pads (stuff like purses and clothes) and knitting, with some crocheting thrown in there from time to time. Hence the occasionally non cloth pad item that pops up in my shop.

I do my best to list new pads every two weeks or so. (Busy life permitting, that is.) -- Follow along on C-Pop Commodities Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/CPopCommodities) for new listing updates, cloth pad raffles and more!

Please note, I do not have time for custom orders. I say this in several places and it seems to get overlooked, so let me say it one more time for good measure: I do not do custom orders.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PayPal only.
Shipping
My shipping day for the week is Friday (holidays permitting or unless otherwise specified.)

I ship First Class mail, unless otherwise specified.

Once your package label has been bought and printed (you receive a notification when this happens.) I can no longer combine shipping, bear this in mind when making your order(s). Once your package has been put together, you will have to cover the full shipping costs for any further orders/packages. But please, do us all the favor of trying to only make ONE order.

I refund shipping overages, per package/order when they exceed two dollars over actual cost on the day your shipping label is created. Please remember the cost of shipping includes packaging supplies, time spent putting packages together and my millage to and from the post office.

If you would like your items shipped to you faster, please contact me and I can send you a Paypal invoice for the extra costs of expedited shipping.

If for whatever reason your package is returned to me, the cost of re-shipment is the responsibility of the customer. If you never get back to the paypal invoice, I will not re-ship that package or refund you.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please leave honest and thoughtful reviews on bought items! Is the item made well? Was the seller communicative and helpful? Knowing these things benefits everyone, reviews are a crucial part of using Etsy. It helps us and everyone else who participates in this wonderful thing we have going here. Without it we are left wondering if that seller rocks, or if that customer is awesome or not. I want to know these things, don't you?

If you don't know how to leave a review (formerly known as "feedback"), check Etsy's FAQ or send me a message and I'll help you figure it out.

*****FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS****

(Please read before contacting me. The answer to your question(s) can probably be found here.)


1) Do you do custom orders? -- No, they are not something I have time for at the moment, and I unfortunately don't see myself having time for them anytime in the near future.

2) What day of the week do you ship packages? -- Friday, unless otherwise specified.

3) How often do you list new items? -- I try to list new items once a month, sewing/prep time willing. This has been extended lately though, because no matter how hard I try, Life keeps getting in the way of C-Pop time.

4) Is this your full time job? -- NOPE! I have a full time job and squeeze C-Pop time into all my "free" moments. (Which are quickly becoming few and far between.)

5) How do you tell 2L (2 layer) pads from 3L (3 layer) pads? -- My 2L pads have ovals for the inner channeling, while the 3L pads have an hour glass shape for the inner channeling.

6.) Do you make any other sized pads? Or pads that are a different shape, or absorbency? -- No, I only have templates for the 3 size I currently make. (7 1/2 inch, 9 1/2 inch and 11 1/2 inch.) Likewise I only make pads with this specific shape and I am not currently interested in making more than two different absorbencies.

7.) Do you have anymore of ______ specific print? -- No, I probably do not. But there is a definite possibility it could show up in a set or when I occasionally list "old favorite" prints. But I do not know when that may be.

8.) Do you use PUL in your pads? -- No, I don't. I list exactly what is in every pad, in every listing.

9.) Do you really do EVERYTHING for your shop? -- Yep! Just little 'ol me! I do ALL the things! I'm not joking when I say "it's a one woman show over here!"

10.) Do you have a FB page? -- Yes! https://www.facebook.com/CPopCommodities -- To be sure you are seeing all of my updates, go to the top of the page and hover over "Liked" and then click "Get Notifications" and or click on the "Following" button. (Located to the right of the "Like" button)

10a.) It's also worth noting, if you like seeing updates from any of your favorite FB pages, be sure to interact with them! The more you like, comment and share, posts from your favorite pages, the more of them you will see. Even if you have already checked the "get notifications" tab at the top, you still might not be actually getting notified. Don't let FB stop you from seeing what you want!

11.) Do you do raffles/giveaways/coupon codes? -- Yes, yes and sometimes! When I'm on top of my game I do a raffle every month on FB via Rafflecopter, and I do occasionally throw a customer appreciation coupon code out there. FB is the best place to catch those sort of deals.

12.) Why won't you reserve listings anymore? -- It was something I was doing on a trial basis and as it turns out, it is not something I would like to continue doing. All items will go back to being sold first come, first serve. Sorry for any inconvenience!

13.) Can you add extra snaps? -- Yes, I can, but it will cost an $2 extra dollars, per pad/snap, to help cover the costs of an extra snap and the time spent applying them. Also, I think it's worth noting, that when I've done this in the past for other customers, the extra snap can make my pads bunch in an awkward way that prevents them from laying flatly in your underwear.

14.) Are all your packaging materials really recyclable?! -- Yes! Really, truly! All of my shipping materials come from Eco Enclose and are 100% Recyclable! The small white poly mailers are made from 100% recycled materials and are not only recyclable, but are also re-usable! While the larger grey poly mailers are made from 88% recycled materials and are also recyclable. Even the inner plastic bags are made from recycled materials and are recyclable! I do my best to enclose a "we care" card from Eco Enclose with every order, they say all this and more. Recycling may seem like a small thing, but it makes a big difference!

15.) Do you give away free pads for reviews? -- Nope, that is not something I am interested in. If you would like to buy my pads and review them, you are more than welcome to do so. Thank you in advance for your understanding and interest in my pads.

16.) Why aren't all your pads perfect and exactly the same every time!? - Because I am human and not a machine. If perfection is something you seek, I suggest you find a company that mass produces their pads, rather than handmade pads, made by one person.

17.) Why are your pads so inexpensive? Doesn't it cost more in supplies and your personal time to make these? Yes. It does. But affordability is really important to me, I try to find a balance between respecting myself to make enough in return for my efforts and still keeping my pads at an affordable rate. It's a fine line to walk for sure.

18.) I sent you an email and you never got back to me! -- Was the answer you were looking for in this FAQ? That's probably why I never got back to you. Or alternately, your email was lost in the shuffle. Re-read the FAQ and then decide if you still need to ask me your question.
