Store Policy

How to Order

Standard orders go out within 10 days receipt. However, delays do occur, if we are expecting your full order to be in stock within a reasonable amount of time, we will hold your order so items may be shipped all together. If this is not possible in a timely manner, you will either be sent a partial shipment with notification of backorder or a postcard estimating the wait period. You will not be charged extra for backorders, but we cannot add to an order once part of it has been shipped.

Methods of Payment

On-line orders may be paid for with Paypal or credit card. Upon completion of your order form you will be directed to Paypal. There you can choose to pay via your Paypal account or use a credit card without creating Paypal account.

Rush Orders

For an additional fee we are happy to ship your order Next Day Air or Second Day Air if we have the item in stock, please call for an estimate.

International Shipments

You can choose to ship to your International address directly from Nakarali via UPS. This does cost more than other methods, but it is guaranteed to arrive, and can be insured and tracked if there is a problem.

Alternately, if you have an address that we can ship to in the USA, you may find it the easier alternative as we have to declare the value of the shipment and this can incur duty fees at Customs. We cannot insure your package and leave the value undeclared.

Additional Catalog Copies

We don’t have a paper catalog at this time. There are so many new things added all the time, we’ve decided the web version is the best way to keep you advised of products and promotions. You can always call us with any questions 650.889.3005, leave a message 24 hours a day and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

What’s a Drop Shipment?

When it is more efficient for an item to be shipped direct from the Nakarali where it is created, it’s called a Drop Shipment.  You will see a note on your invoice informing you that the drop shipment will go out 10 days from receipt of your order.

When can I expect my Back Order?

When an item is out of stock, we will put it on Back Order and send out the items that we have in stock. You do not pay anything extra for back ordered items, the shipping is all-inclusive at the time you order, but we cannot add to an order once part of it has been shipped. You will see a note on your invoice informing you that the back order will go out 10 days from receipt of your order.
