Sales tax will be applied to any products bought from us and shipped to New York State. We have a corporate office in that state and under New York State law sales tax must be applied at the time of the order.
In a recent development, residents in California will have to pay a "handling fee" for any products shipped from Bali due to their new corporate presence in California.
Catalogs are very expensive and although very helpful, we feel our site is more up to date. Catalogs also add to the costs of the blinds, something we do not want to do. Our prices are the best in the business and we work hard to keep them that way!
Unless you have chosen one of our quick ship products that usually ship in 2 days, your products with few exceptions take between 2-3 weeks from the time of ordering. Back ordered items or discontinued products at times will happen and we will make every attempt to notify our customers in a timely fashion. Many manufacturers don't contact us sadly until they pull the inventory for the product and that is when they let us know that the product is out of stock. This is a very poor way of doing business, but we have no control over this practice.
There will be times that on the same order some products will be made at different locations and will be shipped at different times. Call us with any questions about your order.
Our prices include all freight charges. As of 1-1-16 Norman started to charge freight on all their products. Norman freight charges will be shown on the final cart. The other free freight exception is a product 94 inches and up in width, there is a flat fee of $75 to $80 added to your order depending on the manufacturer. Some charge more than others. Our Brand Vertical Blinds are an exception. Depending on size and quantity, shipping may be up to $150.00. We will contact you if this is the case.
Hawaii and Alaska:
Most of our manufacturers now charge various amounts to ship to these (2) states, no two manufacturers are alike.
Due to a new California ruling regarding internet sales shipped to a California residence who buy any products from Springs Window Fashions (Bali), we are being charged a handling fee that is represented on all of our California customer's carts at the time of sale. The amount varies on the amount purchased. This applies to only California residents. www.BlindsExpress.com has no control over this matter.
Feel free to call us with any shipping questions. Customer service - 1.800.836.4488 or email us: email@example.com
We accept Master Card, Visa and Discover charge cards. American Express is not a card we accept due to their excessive merchant fees. We accept money orders or certified checks. The checks need to be in our possession before the order can be placed. We now offer the option of using PayPal. These plans always add pricing to the product.
An internet order confirmation is sent immediately to your email. You need to check that email as soon as you get it. If you do not get an email confirmation shortly after placing the order, call us at 1.800.836.4488. The reason for this is the order did not process or you typed in the wrong email address. If it is a verbal order, you need to listen to the read back carefully. If an error is made during the read back process you will be given the opportunity to correct the error. You will also receive an email confirmation of the verbal order, giving you one last chance to make any corrections to the order. Once you have given an acceptance reply to the confirmation email regarding your order, it will be placed.
We do not ship outside of the US. We do make an occasional exception, a phone call to our order desk will answer any questions you might have. Hawaii and Alaska are always an adjusted freight charge.
When is my credit card charged?

Confirmation is addressed above and instructions always come with the blind as well as all necessary hardware.
