Welcome to ChacoDog.com. ChacoDog.com provides its services to you subject to the following conditions.
If you visit or shop at ChacoDog.com, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully.
Chacodog.com accepts credit card payments by VISA, Mastercard and Discover cards. The website is set
up as a real-time processor of credit cards with the programming on our site designed to debit inventory from stock
as it is purchased. Upon verification and approval of a credit card charge for merchandise, an automatic update to
our inventory count causes a “Sold” sign to appear on any item which is sold out. Our credit card purchasing system
is protected by 128-bit SSL encryption. When a credit card charge is sent from our site for processing, all
information is encrypted to ensure secure transmission of card information and the website receives an
encrypted reply from the card processor concerning verification of the charges to the card.
Credit card payments are our preferred method of doing business because this integrated
system causes our inventory count to be updated via the card processing procedure and all necessary
information for shipping and contacting the client if necessary (by e-mail or phone) is gathered in the
process of a credit card purchase. Credit card purchasing also allows us to keep things moving by shipping
right away to the purchaser.
Layaway and Time Payments
We do not have a layaway or time payment plan. We pay the artists up front for their work (we do not
believe in consignment) and we must be paid in full for an item in order to remove it from our website. Layaway
is a financing arrangement which involves administrative paperwork, segregating inventory and an extra “cost of
carry” on the merchandise. We realize that some other websites engage in this practice, but it has very real costs
and they are imputed in the prices on a website. We refuse to add an extra layer of cost onto all of our merchandise
so that we can finance time payments. We are a source for authentic, traditional American Indian goods and we love
that pursuit. We are not bankers and if we engage in running a finance business, the quality of our real business
will suffer. Our purpose is to charge a fair price, beat the competition in terms of price (as often as possible)
and always in terms of quality and keep our merchandise moving so that we can inject more money into the Indian
economy through regular purchases of new inventory. We hope that you will understand that this strategy keeps us
true to our goal and is the principal reason for our reasonable prices and constant addition of new inventory to
Domestic & International Shipping Methods
Chacodog ships via the United States Postal Service for both domestic and international shipments.
With over 2,000 shipments sent, the USPS has never lost, nor damaged one of our packages. We find their
services to be fast and efficient and reasonably-priced. Our postage is purchased directly via the internet
and all of our domestic packages are shipped with zip + 4 digits to addresses verified by the USPS data base
of deliverable addresses in the United States. This feature results in all addresses on our domestic shipping
labels being bar-encoded and facilitates fast sorting and rapid transit through the system. All of our
domestic shipments are:
- Insured for full value of the contents
- Sent with USPS Delivery Confirmation
International shipments are sent by United States Postal Service. Delivery time for international
shipments ranges from 3 to 7 days for delivery to the Customs Service of the destination country. Customs Services
generally function rapidly and efficiently for such packages, but delays can be variable and are attributable to
specific Customs Service and inspection procedures. All of our international shipments are:
- Insured for full value
- Sent by Airmail
Domestic & International Shipping Charges
Chacodog charges a basic handling fee on all packages shipped. Our handling fee covers the
materials used in shipment and helps defray the cost of labor in carefully packaging your shipment. Because of
the care given to each shipment, we have not had one damaged shipment out of more than 2,000 packages shipped.
Total shipping and handling fees are calculated by adding the base handling fee to a value-based calculation.
The value-based portion is calculated at one dollar ($1) per hundred-dollar value of merchandise (which is tied
to insurance costs). For domestic shipments we have added the possibility for customers to choose USPS Priority
Mail for a nominal additional cost ($2).
- $5 Domestic handling fee
- $7 International handling fee
Example of domestic charges:
Merchandise value: $250
Standard S&H: $5 (handling fee) + $3 (value-based) = $8
USPS Priority S&H: $5 (handling fee) + $3 (value-based) + $2 (Priority upgrade) = $10
Example of international charges:
Merchandise value: $250
International S&H: $7 (international handling fee) + $3 (value-based) = $10

Common Sense & Courtesy Concerning Returns
If you feel the turquoise is not the same color as what you perceived on the web, take the item outdoors and
view it under natural light. All items are photographed outdoors in order to show the most accurate representation
of color with a full spectrum of natural light. Turquoise will generally appear darker and greener under artificial
light. If you’re still not satisfied, return the item immediately.
Please return the item promptly to facilitate prompt re-crediting of the card. The credit card processors
will not refund Chacodog’s processing fees after 30 days from the transaction.
Please be so kind as to drop an email to Chacodog alerting us to watch out for your return.
Please pack the item carefully. It was packed very carefully to ship to you because one-of-a-kind items
cannot be replaced by insurance money. We cannot re-credit an item that arrives to us from you damaged in transit.
We encourage you to save the original packing materials and make use of them in the event of a return.
Do not bend or “re-size” a bracelet until you’ve determined that you wish to keep it. Do not alter the finish of jewelry through polishing or oxidation until you’ve determined that you wish to keep it.
