Singapore buyers can pay in SGD via interbank transfer (most preferred). Indicate this under “Message to Seller” when you checkout, and I will convo you thereafter with payment instructions and bank details. SGD payments by Paypal or credit cards are also possible, please convo me for details before purchasing.
Kindly make full payment within 3 days of purchase. Otherwise, the transaction will be cancelled and item relisted. If you need more time, please do let me know so that we can work something out.
Combined shipping is available for multiple purchases. Please refer to the individual listings for the combined rates. Please note that for combined shipping, items will be shipped together in one gift box or one bubble mailer.
Your items will be shipped to the address as stated on your Etsy receipt. Kindly ensure that the address you keep on Etsy is accurate and up-to-date.
If you wish to combine items from The Dancing Hippo, Jewel Parlour and That Gem Shop, just leave a note under "Message to Seller" during checkout and wait for your revised invoice.
Item(s) are shipped within 2 business days after payment is cleared (unless it is a made-to-order item which will take 3-5 business days to ship). Item(s) paid by e-check will be shipped after e-check clears, which takes about 4 business days. There is no shipping on Sat/Sun/Public Holidays. Once your package is shipped you will receive a notification convo on Etsy with the Registered Article (RA) number. Delivery takes approximately 2 to 3 business days for Singapore orders and about 8 to 14 business days for international orders from the date of shipment, subjected to seasonal traffic, weather conditions and customs clearance. US customers, please note that heightened aviation measures on all inbound US flights, and increased airline and customs screening of all items at Singapore and US may cause delivery delays.
Registered mail offers limited tracking for some countries, and insurance coverage of up to S$68 (approx US$50 at current rates) should the package be confirmed lost. If you did not receive your package after 18 business days please convo me or e-mail jewelparlour [!at] yahoo.com.sg so that I can help you raise an offical enquiry with the postal authorities. Do note however, that the entire tracing and claim process can take up to 2 months.
