Card logos

Is your site secure?

Yes. Your payment information is secure with our payment processor. We never even see your credit card number; our payment processor notifies us that you've paid and we ship your order. This means your payment information is secure!

Do I have to have a PayPal account to buy?

No, you can pay with your credit card without a PayPal account. Simply click the 'Pay with credit card' link at checkout.

Sales Tax

Ohio residents will be charged a 7% sales tax.

International Taxes, Fees, and Duties

All international import taxes, fees, duties, and other charges will be your responsibility. Unfortunately, we are not able to effect these fees as they are regulated and charged by your local government. We mark all packages as "Merchandise" with the correct value declared as required by international law. If you have questions about a fee charged by your government for importing goods, please contact your local customs department.


Please be aware that E-checks through Paypal may take 5-7 business days to clear and may delay shipping of your purchase, and we are unable to affect this process. Purchases will not ship until payment has cleared. We appreciate your patience


If you need to cancel an order, please contact us immediately to do so. Once your order has shipped we are not able to cancel your order, and it will be treated as a return. Since we try to ship your purchase at light speed, it is very important that when you purchase you are ready to own a little piece of serenity from Serenity in Chains.

Defective Items

For defective item returns, customer shall pay shipping upfront, and be reimbursed for the shipping costs if the item is found to have been defective by a Serenity in Chains artisan. Non defective returns are to be shipped back at the buyer's expense. A 15% restocking fee may be charged for items returned that are not defective. This fee is charged at our discretion.

Custom Made Returns

Please note that Custom Made Items are not be returnable unless deemed defective by a Serenity in Chains artisan, in which case they will be repaired or replaced. This is due to the personalized nature of our custom made products, and our inability to restock them for sale.

Nipple Jewelry / Intimate Jewelry Returns

Please note that due to health concerns, nipple jewelry is non returnable unless it arrived damaged or defective. If your nipple jewelry arrived in a damaged state, or is determined to be defective by a Serenity in Chains artist then we will replace your damaged/defective design with the same design you purchased. In the rare event that design is no longer available, you will be provided with store credit to apply towards another design.
