**If you live in the EU or UK please contact me before ordering.  I will have to create a custom order for you in my Etsy shop due to the onerous VAT requirements that the EU and UK have put in place.**


How can I pay?

We use PayPal and Square as our payment processors, so we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. You can pay using your PayPal balance.

Payment Information

Invoices sent via paypal will be from AE Systems since that is our business name.

Layaway/Payment Plans

See something you love but don't quite have the funds right now?  Send me a message/email and we can setup a payment plan for you.

Is your site secure?

Yes. You pay through PayPal or Square, not through this site. We never even see your credit card number; PayPal and Square just tell us that you've paid and we ship you your purchases. We get your money through PayPal or Square.

Do I have to have a PayPal account to buy?

No, you can pay with your credit card without a PayPal account.
