Order timeline Policy
In order for orders to be shipped the same day, we must receive your order by Noon Eastern Time.
 
Timeline for you to consider when placing your order
Delivery times can vary for each product based on the delivery location and the size of the product. This is especially useful if your gift is time sensitive. By calculating an estimated delivery date, you can easily determine what shipping method will best ensure your package gets to the desired location in time. Due to the size of some products, ground shipping may be the only shipping method available.
 
Pre-Ship Processing Time
This is the time it takes from when you submit your order to when the product leaves our warehouse. This time is needed for products that are shipped to you directly from our manufacturers. The manufacturers need this time to fulfill your order. Keep in mind if you place an order on a Friday - Sunday your order will not be shipped until Monday or Tuesday.  You'll also need to remember to add time due to hoiday's!
 
Security Policy
When you shop at WorldWideChessSets.com, you never have to worry about credit card safety. We guarantee that every transaction you make will be 100% safe.
 
WorldWideChessSets.com uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and AOL browsers, so that only WorldWideChessSets.com can read a buyer's personal information.
 
Online purchases are statistically safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Technical experts state that online purchases are far safer than traditional credit card transactions because the information is immediately encrypted into a scrambled message that can only be decrypted by an authorized computer.
 
In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.

If a you are dissatisfied with an item within 30-days from date of purchase, you can return it for a full refund, less shipping charges.  Please note from time to time the color of the actual set you receive may vary from what you see on your computer as computer monitors (like TVs) have different resolutions and natural materials also vary from set to set.  This is quite normal as no two sets are identical, we do however try to have the photograph represent 'most' of the products in our current stock.  The item must be returned to us in good saleable condition and you pay for return shipping.  If the returned item is damaged because of your poor packing there will be a 50% restocking fee deducted from the refund.
 
Chess Piece Replacement
We will replace chess pieces as needed over time for a nominal charge.  The charge per piece depends on the set, and the customer pays shipping.  Please note a 50% deposit is due upon order with the balance due at shipping.  As the replacement pieces are special order, no refunds will be given, all sales are final.
