Questions About Ordering Online

To provide faster online help, we have included a list of frequently asked questions. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, contact us by e-mail, or call us at (805) 784-2441, and we’ll be happy to assist you.

How do I order online?

We strive to make it as easy as possible for you to order. When shopping online, simply add an item to your order from any product page by selecting a size, a color, a quantity and clicking the “Add to Cart” button. The item will be added to your “Shopping Cart” where you will be able to change order quanities and keep track of your order subtotal as you shop. From the Shopping Cart page, you can either click the button to continue shopping or proceed to check out. At the time of check out, you will have the opportunity to review your order, and then specify your billing and shipping information, as well as any special instructions to us.

What should I expect to happen once I place an online order?

We will automatically confirm receipt of your order via e-mail to the address you have given us and your order will then be processed within 48 hours (excluding Saturdays and Sundays).

How do I know if ordering online is secure?

We encrypt your personal information—such as your credit card number—when transmitting over the Internet using SSL technology. An “s” added to the familiar “http” (to make “https”) in this site’s URL indicates that SSL is in effect. In Netscape Communicator, the padlock symbol in the corner of the browser frame, usually open, is closed in secure mode. In Internet Explorer, a closed padlock appears when you are in secure mode. If you’re about to send information to a site that’s not using SSL, your browser will warn you first.

Why isn’t my browser working with your site?

Ordering from our site requires the use of an SSL-compliant browser. We recommend using at least Netscape Communicator 4.0, or Microsoft IE 4.0 (or more recent versions of either). Version 3.01 of both browsers incorrectly displays “transfer interrupted” when retrieving information from our databases. For AOL users, either the 3.0 or 4.0 (or above) AOL client for Windows or the 4.0 (or above) AOL client for Macintosh is recommended. Also, your browser preferences must be set to accept “cookies.” View our Security Policy page to find out how to can change your browser settings to accept cookies.

Why is my order empty?

Your browser could be configured to refuse “cookies.” This site uses cookies to keep items added to an order “attached” to the correct shopper. View our Security Policy page to find out how to can change your browser settings to accept cookies.

What are you going to do with my name and order information?

We ask you for your name and contact information to be able to contact you about your order. Madonna Inn Online Store does not rent or sell information we get from online orders or e-mail registrations to third parties. For more details, see our Privacy Policy page.

Which credit cards do you accept?

We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.

Can items be shipped internationally?

After submitting your order online, you will be contacted via e-mail with the international shipping charges for your order. These charges will match our actual shipping cost. After we receive confirmation that you approve the shipping charges, your order will be processed. If you have any questions, please contact us or call (805) 784-2441.
