Order status/tracking

One World Projects would like to thank you for your order. You’ll receive a confirmation email that includes your order number and a summery of the items in your cart, after placing an order. Please save this email. This is your receipt, and can be used to track your order’s status and location.

We attempt to fulfill and ship orders as quickly as possible. In general, in-stock orders are shipped within two days of order placement. Orders placed on weekends and holidays will ship the next business day. Your credit card is not charged until your order ships.

At the time of shipping we make every effort to send you a tracking number so that you can track online the status of your package. Should you require further assistance phone us at (585) 343-4490 or e-mail us.

Backordered Items

We purchase products that are both fair trade and handmade from more than 100 artisan groups throughout the developing world. There are many factors that can lend to a product being temporarily out-of-stock including: popularity of a specific item, lead-time needed to produce replacement product, logistics of shipping, communications with artisans in remote parts of the world, and political climate.

We take every precaution to avoid the situation of our customers ordering an out-of-stock item. In the rare event that an item you’ve ordered be on backorder for more than 2 to 3 days, we will contact you by e-mail or phone. At that time you will be notified of when the item is expected to be again in-stock and given the choice of either keeping your item on backorder and having it shipped to you once it is back in-stock, or canceling the backordered item and receiving a full refund to your credit card.

Payment Methods

We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa credit cards and One World Projects Gift Certificates. You’ll be asked to input your Credit Card Verification number (“CCV”) for security purposes each time you checkout. The CCV is the three-digit number found immediately behind the credit card number on the backside of all Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards. For American Express cards, the four-digit CCV is imprinted on the front of the card above the account number.

If you wish to pay by check or money order, you may send your order to One World Projects, 43 Ellicott Ave, Batavia, NY 14020, USA. A valid phone number or e-mail address is required so we can contact you with any questions about your order.

Gift Wrapping

As part of our mission to save the environment, we try to keep packaging to a minimum by sending gifts as they come packaged without adding gift boxes or wrapping paper. We make every effort to manage our business in the most environmentally friendly and efficient manner.

However, if you want us to wrap your gift in fair trade handmade wrapping paper, we can do so, charging a nominal fee for the same. Our wrapping paper is as unique as the handcrafted gift article it contains. There is simply no better way to present a gift.

We are happy to offer a free gift message with any order. If you prefer, we can remove all pricing information on all gifts prior to shipping and include y
