Due to the digital nature of our e-Patterns, you can only order them at our website.

Are you wondering if it's safe to use your credit card on the Internet?
The answer is YES. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption scrambles your credit card number when you submit your order, making it completely unreadable as it travels over the Internet.

Registered customers can store credit card and billing information on e-PatternsCentral.com to make shopping easier and faster. We protect all personal information including your name address AND credit card information.

To save or change our credit card or billing information, click Customer Sign In at the top of any page on our site and update your information within your account. Please note that for security reasons, we require you enter your password to access your credit card information, even if you have already signed in on the site.

If you'd like to find out more about our privacy policies, please read our Privacy/Security statement.

I don't have a debit or credit card, can I still purchase your e-Patterns?
We only accept credit cards, debit cards or pre-paid credit cards issued by a major bank online for payment. Sorry, we do not accept checks or cash in payment for e-Patterns, nor can you order e-Patterns over the phone.

Can I change, cancel or delete an e-Pattern order?
Orders placed at e-PatternsCentral.com cannot be changed or canceled. Since orders are delivered immediately, an e-Pattern order cannot be canceled.

When will I receive my e-Patterns?
Our server sends a confirmation message to you at the email address you provided on the check out form. This confirmation will contain the all-important links making it possible for you to download your e-Patterns. Simply click on the link and the e-Pattern will begin to download. For this reason, it is very important that you enter your correct email address in the check out information! After your purchase is complete, you can also find your purchased e-Patterns listed in your My Bookshelf section within the customer log-in area. Your e-Patterns will not be delivered to your home. For home delivery of printed patterns, visit one of our publisher's websites at AnniesCatalog.com.

How do you deliver your products and what are the charges?
All e-PatternsCentral.com products are delivered electronically, directly to your computer. You will receive a confirmation email almost immediately. If you have not received an email within 1 hour, please check your bulk or spam folder. If the confirmation email is not located there, check your My Bookshelf in the customer log-in area for your patterns. If you are unable to locate the products recently purchased by either of these methods, please contact customer service.

At e-PatternsCentral.com there are no delivery charges! All purchased product can be sent to any valid email address anywhere in the world.

Why didn't I receive an order confirmation email?
We will send you an email confirming each order you place at e-PatternsCentral.com. If you have not received your order confirmation email, here are some possible reasons.

Typographical error in the email address entered during registration.
We've found the most common reason that emails are not received is that a typographical error was made while entering an email address. Sign in on the site and modify your account information.

Preferences or email filters may be blocking our email.
Most email filters control unwanted email by blocking email addresses originating from an unwanted source. If you suspect that an email filter is preventing you from receiving your order and shipping confirmations for orders from our site, you will need to add our email address -- customer_care@e-PatternsCentral.com -- to your address book or list of approved senders.

How do I give an e-Pattern as a gift?
Because all order information is tied to your personal information, we do not suggest purchasing e-Patterns as a gift. The encrypted file requires a password to open, and that password may contain personal information.

When I tried to check out, I received an invalid cookie error that said my logon ID may be in use by another user. What does this mean?
The cookie is based on what you have in your shopping cart in the browser. If you tried to add something without allowing the browser to update after a previous addition, you may receive this error. Unfortunately, this also means you have to start all over again. Hit the back button on your browser and make a note of the e-Patterns in your shopping cart. It's best to close your browser and open it again to allow the cookie to expire. Add the e-Patterns back to your cart and proceed to check out.

I can't get my credit card number to work, what is the problem?
Incorrect information may have been entered at the time the order was placed. When entering your credit card number in the check out form, make sure you do not include any dashes or spaces, only numbers. Remember to select the expiration date shown on your credit card and don't forget to update your account information when issued a new credit card.

Debit cards must be the type that is usually referred to as a check card. If you are using a debit card, that does not have a credit card logo on it, this will not work; the type of card referred to as an ATM card will not work.

Prepaid credit cards issued by a major credit card company are accepted.

I have Windows XP and Adobe Reader 6.0, but I am not able to download your patterns. What now?
In some cases, it is possible that your antivirus protection contains a firewall, a standalone firewall or other protective software installed to help prevent against spyware, viruses, malicious code, etc. which may be prohibiting your ability to download the pattern. If you think this might be the case, refer to your software's documentation for instructions on how to add safe sites to the software's list. Be sure to restart your computer after making changes to firewall and antivirus software settings because although they may appear to accept the new settings immediately, this is not often the case.

During check out I received the following message "Unable to Contact VeriSign to authorize credit card -- Please try again later." What does this mean?
The VeriSign server may be experiencing heavy traffic. This is generally a very short-term problem and re-submitting your order immediately will usually result in a successful transaction.
