Desert Belle Vintage LLC utilizes secure Stripe Invoices for ordering through the Shop. Stripe manages and completes all payment transactions such as credit and/or debit card transactions. Stripe does NOT share with Desert Belle Vintage LLC any customer payment information such as credit and/or debit card information. No customer payment information such as credit and/or debit card information is therefore provided to Desert Belle Vintage LLC during the order process.
In order to place an order in the Shop and have a secure Stripe invoice generated, a customer EITHER:
1) Clicks the “Email to Purchase” button in an item’s listing which creates an already addressed email to Desert Belle Vintage with the item’s SKU in the subject box and pre-formatted email message noting information to provide. A customer then voluntarily writes their information (first and last name, shipping address and phone number) in the email and sends it to Desert Belle Vintage LLC to have their secure Stripe invoice generated by Desert Belle Vintage LLC. Please note the “Email to Purchase” button will only open the above described email for the customer if their desktop email program is open.
2) A customer emails firstname.lastname@example.org and voluntarily provides Desert Belle Vintage LLC with the information for the product(s) they wish to order, a First and Last Name, Shipping address and Phone Number.
After a customer contacts Desert Belle Vintage LLC through one of the above methods, a secure Stripe invoice is generated for the cost of the item(s) plus shipping and tax (if applicable) and emailed to the customer. The Stripe invoice provides instructions for completing payment through Stripe. Stripe processes the payment and informs Desert Belle Vintage LLC when payment in full has been completed. Desert Belle Vintage LLC then prepares the order for shipment. Items are not shipped until after payment has been completed and finalized.
