Why Pre-Orders or Small Batches?
What Are Preorders?
Preorders are reservations for products that are not currently in stock but will be soon. By preordering, you can ensure that you beat any sell-outs. Preorders also allow our business to gauge the popularity of particular styles, materials, and sizes.
Why Preorder with Etta Grove?
When placing a preorder, you help us help you.
Etta Grove is a high-end fashion brand focusing on consciously made, limited-batch footwear and handbags. Because we're committed to reducing waste, we benefit from preorders. They tell us the quantity of materials we need to order for each batch. Less material waste is better for us and the environment.
Preordering with Etta Grove is like purchasing something "made-to-order" because you will ensure that you receive our luxe shoes or bags from the next manufactured batch. Our preordered merchandise is handcrafted abroad and then sent to the United States for distribution directly to you!
What Are the Cons to NOT Preordering?
In addition to missing out on the above-mentioned benefits of preordering, you may lose out on a product entirely!
Preorders give us valuable insight into what styles consumers like. If an item is less popular, it may be pulled from our shop to make room for newer products. So don't miss out on an item you like!
How Long Is the Preorder Window Open?
Generally, we open our preorder window for two weeks, so while you have time to consider, it's better to act fast. We take popularity into account and can extend the window at our discretion.
When Will Customers Be Charged for Preorders?
Etta Grove will charge your payment method when you preorder. If you receive the item and wish to return it, you may request a refund consistent with our Return and Exchange Policy.
When Do Preordered Items Ship?
Each preorder item comes with an anticipated ship date indicated at the end of each product listing. Though we cannot guarantee a specific date, we will do our best to adhere to the estimated timeframe.
Special circumstances may impact the shipping process. These circumstances include, but are not limited to:
- Health-related staffing shortages
- Supply chain disruptions
- Global transportation issues like low-capacity ports
We will keep you up-to-date about your preordered items so you can get more excited as your delivery date approaches!
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Preorders." We'll be happy to chat with you.
Be sure to opt-in to email communications so we can keep you informed about current and future preorder periods.
Small or Limited Batches?
We understand that customers want their purchases as soon as possible, So, sometimes, rather than sell our products through preorders solely, we will place small or limited batch production orders with our factory so that we can have some inventory on-hand. This remains consistent with our commitment to reducing production waste. Also, it is cost efficient, improves quality control, and allows greater flexibility in adjusting a design if we see fit.
