Why do I have to use PayPal or Amazon Pay to make a purchase?

The long answer has to do with the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Virgin Islands and something called the Insular Cases - you can read more here.

The short answer is we live in the U.S. Virgin Islands and there are laws and regulations that do not allow for Credit Card transactions to be processed online for the U.S. Virgin Islands at this time. So we utilize the very secure and safe payment systems of PayPal and Amazon Pay. 

Why does it take so long to get my purchase?

Bard's Bytes uses various companies to produce your item of choice on demand. That means you get exactly what you want and it is created when you order. Bard's Bytes does not keep an inventory in a warehouse getting musty and dusty, our products are put into production the moment you make your purchase. Your order is then shipped to you in the most economical and speedy way available.
