Are the products on the website the same as in the stores?
Yes. Although our website may have a greater selection than a store in your area, the products are the same. To find a retail store in your area, go to the "Locations" page.
Is my personal and credit card information safe on your website?
Yes. Velvet Eyewear has taken several steps to ensure all information received from our online visitors is secure from unauthorized access and use. All transactions are completed on a secure server. In secure mode, your computer and our server send data back and forth in an encrypted format.
What are your shipping fees?
Velvet Eyewear calculates your shipping fees according to our negotiated rates with Federal Express and UPS. We pass on our savings to you, our customer.
When will my order be shipped? When will it arrive?
If your order was placed prior to 11:00 am EST Monday through Thursday it will be shipped the same day or the day after. If your order was placed on Friday prior to 12:00pm EST, the order may be shipped the same day, if not it will be shipped on Monday. You will receive an e-mail confirmation once your order has shipped. Prior to checking out, you will see several estimated arrival dates, depending on the type of shipping you select. NOTE: For consumer protection, all orders are subject for review. On occasion, this may cause a slight delay in processing your order. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
How do I know that my order has been shipped?
When your order has been shipped, Velvet Eyewear will send you another e-mail with your tracking number and a link to where you can track it online.
What's the difference between "Order Date" and "Ship Date"?
On most websites, "Order Date" and "Ship Date" are not the same. For example, if you place an order on Friday at 11:00pm EST, your package will not ship until after the weekend. When you place an order, you'll see an "Estimated Ship Date" on the order page. If you opted for Expedited Shipping, you will receive your package two days after it ships. In some cases this does not necessarily mean two days after you placed the order. Although most orders are shipped the same or next day, please take weekends and holidays into account when considering the shipping date.
What countries do you ship to?
Velvet Eyewear can only ship to the domestic United States at this time.
Do you ship to PO boxes or APO/FPO addresses?
For security reasons, Velvet Eyewear does not currently ship to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses.
If I send my package as a gift, will the recipient receive the invoice?
Yes. The recipient will receive an invoice unless you indicate while you are checking out that it is a gift.
Will my credit card be charged immediately?
No. Your credit card will not be charged until your order is shipped. When you enter your credit card information on the final review page, Velvet Eyewear will give you an order confirmation number. You will also immediately receive an e-mail confirming that your order has been received. We will send you another e-mail to notify you when your order has been shipped and we've charged your credit card.
Why should I become a registered user?
