Shipping & Returns

Delivery (Patterns)

There are no charges for shipping for patterns; all patterns are available by digital download from your PlanetJune account as soon as your payment has been received:

PayPal/Stripe payments
Your patterns are available for download immediately.

PayPal eCheck or Check/Cheque/Money Order payments
Your patterns will available for download once your payment has cleared.

  • eCheck: Payments usually take several days to clear. You may log into your PayPal account to see the expected clearing date.)
  • Check/Cheque/Money Order: This will take a little longer; please allow time for me to receive your payment by mail, plus time to deposit it at the bank and for the payment to clear before your patterns are available. 

Shipping and Delivery (Crochet Tools)

I ship worldwide. All items will be shipped by South Africa Small Packet Airmail. I ship once or twice a week, depending on the number of orders received.

Please note that all Crochet Tools are unavailable until next spring because of my big move back home to Canada. Once I'm ready to resume shipping orders, the shipping rates and details shown below will change, as I'll be shipping from Canada instead of South Africa.

If you'd like to be notified when PlanetJune crochet tools are available to ship again, please sign up for the one-off notification email.

Shipping Rates
Note: it is highly unlikely that the weight of your order will exceed the minimum shipping cost shown below (my items are very light!). To check your shipping costs before you order, add the items to your shopping cart and click 'estimate shipping'.

Worldwide Rates Up to 100g 101g-200g 201g-300g Approx delivery time
(from the shipping date)
Shipping cost $4.95 $9.90 $14.85 2 weeks*
Registered mail $3.50 plus the cost quoted above 

* 2 weeks is the quoted delivery time, but there may be additional delays if your package is held at customs on entering your country.

These prices are for standard shipping by South African Small Packet Airmail. Please note that tracking is not available unless you choose the registered mail option (see below).

Surface mail is also available at a reduced charge ($2.95, $5.90, $8.85), but takes "at least 4-5 weeks" according to the Post Office. If you'd like me to ship your order by Surface mail instead, please make a note in the comments box when you order, and I will refund the additional charge. 

Do I need to pay for registered shipping? It's entirely up to you whether you choose to pay the extra to have your package registered. Registration gives you a tracking number so you can track the progress of your package, and also entitles you to compensation should your package be lost en route to you. The choice is yours!
