I made payment, but I havent heard from you yet?

Money goes directly to the bank account of the society.  Society has to get acknowledgement from the bank if money has come to their account. It is a weavers group and they dont have enough people to help here, nor are they tech savvy. We are manually mapping the payments to orders. We will get back to you as soon as we can. If you can send the proof of payment to us on email to payments@chekutty.in, then we can speed up the process.

I made payment and got your acknowledgment. But I havent got my chekutty yet. Why?

We – a small group of volunteers – are stretched to our limits and trying the best we can. The orders have surpassed all our expectations, we are focusing on more production. We have started shipping from October 8th.

I forgot to put my order number while making payment. What can I do now?

No worries. Send us the order number, bank transaction number, date and time. We will try to locate your payment and confirm with you.

I forgot to add the shipping cost when I made the transfer. What should I do now?

You can make additional transfer for the balance amount via bank transfer. Or you can pick up the dolls from us (we’ll inform of the locations soon)

I placed the wrong order. Can I modify the order?

If you havent made the payment, just inform us. We will cancel the order. You can place a new order. If you have made the payment, you can place another order with additional numbers required.

I don’t want dolls, I want to make dolls. Where can I get sarees?
