BloodShop! utilizes both PayPal and Stripe for payments.
Stripe allows us to accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Diners Club payments from customers worldwide.
All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.).
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).
You are not required to have a PayPal account to purchase from this store, although if you already have a PayPal account you may use it.
We utilize the Big Cartel automated inventory system and all items with an "add to cart" option should be in stock at the time of your order. Out of stock items are clearly marked "sold out."
Most items are generally shipped within a one day of receiving an order.
Shipping costs are adjusted for multiple items (combined orders) and include the cost for high quality mailing supplies.
All BloodLust! releases are guaranteed against defect and will be replaced if playback is affected by faulty manufacturing. Please use the contact form to report a defective product and to request a replacement. We reserve the right to request the return of the item in question. This policy does not cover damage caused from shipping, or issues such as cracked jewel boxes. Shipping insurance is available at an additional cost, upon request.
Records, CDs, cassettes, T-shirts, etc., are all carefully packed -- the way that we would want to receive them -- using strong corrugated record mailers, corrugated "filler pads," bubble mailers, bubble-wrap, etc. While we typically utilize all-new supplies from vendors like U-Line and Bags Unlimited, we are not against recycling like-new supplies when they are on hand.
Rare + Used:
Select rare and second-hand items are periodically available via our Discogs store. When it is turned on, our link is: http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?seller=bloodlustchicago
BloodLust! demo policy:
In the past we openly welcomed demos, but due to an ambitious release schedule and a focus on "internal" releases, BloodLust! is no longer soliciting demos for future releases. Thank you for your understanding.
BloodShop! distro policy:
Please note that this webstore does not function as a distro and I am not actively seeking releases to stock.
Any other questions can be addressed via the contact form link.
