Frequently Asked Questions
Why can't I add it to my cart? - If there isn't a button to add a product to your cart, it is out of stock. Please check back or send a note if you are desperate for a certain item. I can tell you when I expect more.
Why am I being charged sales tax? - If you live in Texas, you will be charged because Poly Clay Play is in Texas. Otherwise, if you were charged tax, you used Amazon Pay as your form of payment. They automatically add tax.
Clay Shortage? - Since the pandemic hit, there has been a high demand for clay. I'm guessing because so many are stuck at home wanting something to do or a way to make some extra money. Clay companies have to follow the restrictions on number of employees working at a time. Many have gone to 24 hour days to try to keep up. Please know, I have the clay ordered and as soon as I am expecting a large shipment, I send a newsletter. If you are wondering when to expect a certain color, please send a note and I will let you know what I know.
How fast will orders ship? - I try to ship the same or next day. Orders with Inka Gold towers may be delayed a day or two. Small jars are filled when they are ordered. Clay and other items: There are times when I add products to the site because I know they will arrive in a few days. In those cases, your order will be delayed until my shipment comes in. Your order will be marked "Awaiting Items for Shipment". Add a comment when you place your order if you are in a hurry and I will do my best to meet your deadline. If I can't I'll send a note so you can decide what you want to do.
Orders placed after mail has been picked up (normally noon CST, sometimes later), will go out the next day at the earliest.
How are orders shipped? - I use USPS. Clay will be put in a heat resistant bag first and then the appropriate size package to ship by USPS. Priority Mail usually arrives in 2 - 3 days.
Where does Poly Clay Play ship to? - United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. I recently made the decision to stop shipping worldwide because of the VAT restrictions.
