How secure is your payment?

All jokes and puns aside - your privacy and security are our highest priority. We use Shopify Payments, a highly secure and encrypted system designed to protect customers and hold merchants accountable.

On any page where we ask you to enter your address, phone number, or credit card information, Shopify Payments uses a secure socket layer (SSL) to encrypt the communication.

What types of payment do you accepted?

We accept good old-fashioned credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and Amex. Only one credit card may be applied per order. If you're a bit more tech-savvy, we also offer PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Shop Pay.

If you are using a Zipper Valley-issued gift card, the funds will be removed from your balance at the time your order is placed. Happy shopping!

How do I use a discount code?

Woo, it's on sale - so you're basically saving money. Simply head to checkout and type your code in the box labelled "Promo Code". Then make sure to click "Apply"! This is offered before the payment page so you're aware of exactly how much you're saving.

*Please note: You can only use one discount code per order. Please check email offers or our social media to see what items the code is applicable for (eg. zippers, pulls and charms only).

I forgot to use my discount code!

Did you make your Zipper Valley purchase, and as the payment was loading, you realized (with horror) that you forgot to use your discount? Never fear. That opportunity hasn't slipped away! Simply email us at and we're will be happy to help you.

*Please note: You can only use one discount code per order. 

How can I redeem my gift card?

Simply head to checkout and type your gift card code in the box labelled "Gift Card". Then make sure to click "Apply"! This is offered before the payment page so you're aware of exactly how much you're paying.

Only one gift card may be applied per order. If you have misplaced your gift card, please email us at and we'll be happy to look into it for you.

I'm having trouble placing an order!

Oh no! Let us help.

We recommend refreshing your web browser and clearing your cache and cookies. This may solve issues such as populating a shipping quote, proceeding to the next section at checkout, or adding your credit card information.

If this doesn’t work, we recommend trying to check out on a different browser, using a different device, or logging out of your account and checking out as a guest.

Some other helpful tips for making sure your order goes through:

  1. Make sure your postal code or zip code on your credit card details matches the code in your billing address. For security reasons, these two postal codes will need to match for your bank to process the transaction and submit the order.
  2. Only one method of payment can be used per order. Please note that any third-party gift cards such as AMEX or Visa are considered credit cards, and will need to have a minimum of the full order total available on the card for the funds to process and complete the order.
  3. While our website does not have a scroll bar, you’re still able to scroll! You can use the arrow keys, or scroll with a mouse that has a scrolling button available. The website can also be navigated using the tab button.

If you’re unsure if your order was processed, we recommend checking your email for an order confirmation before placing a new order on our website.

For more assistance, feel free to email us at with the items in your shopping cart, your shipping address, and the best phone number to reach you at, and we will be in touch as soon as possible to help.
