Credit terms are available to U.S. customers who have been in business for at least one year. To be considered for credit terms, a completed and signed credit application must be faxed or mailed to Karen Foster Design; you will receive notification of your terms upon approval. Invoices are due within terms from date of invoice and finance charges will accrue on past due balances. Customer is responsible for any and all costs (including reasonable attorney fees) associated with collection of any balance owed to KFD. Orders will only ship if the account is current and prepayment is required for all orders exceeding the credit limit. International accounts require prepayment and are not eligible for credit terms. For your convenience our credit application is available below.
When establishing your account, please indicate whether or not you accept backorders. Backorders will ship unless you indicate otherwise. If backordered items are not available to ship within 120 days, backorders will be cancelled. Only backorders over $50 will be processed and shipped. Backorders under $50 will be cancelled. Shipping will be charged for all domestic backorders. Backorders will not ship to international accounts unless specifically requested. If an account is past due or on credit hold, all backorders will be put on hold for 30 days. If account is not brought back within good standing or credit card does not approve within 30 days all backorders will be cancelled.
Orders with a declined credit card will be put on hold for thirty days during which time you will be contacted for alternate payment. If the card does not approve within 30 days, or if we are not supplied with another form of payment, the order will be cancelled. For your protection, credit card information is no longer kept on file. You will be required to provide a credit card number each time an order is placed.
Standard shipping rates will apply to all orders, including international orders. International accounts may use other freight forwarders if prior arrangements have been made. All back orders over $50 will be charged actual shipping costs. Freight carrier is subject to change without notice.
Damages or shortages must be reported within five (5) business days of receipt of goods in order for a claim to be honored. Credit for damaged products will be honored only if the original packaging is retained for inspection.

If the order has been entered into our system and sent to the warehouse for fulfillment, order changes will not be accepted. Order cancellation must be received in writing prior to shipment.

All accounts with a past due balance or accounts on credit hold will have all standard orders and backorders put on hold for 30 days. If the account is not brought back to good standing within that 30 day period all standard orders and backorders will be canceled.
