Frequently Asked Questions
At Churchings, we value your questions. We understand you may have inquiries regarding placing orders and other matters. Below are the queries frequently asked by our customers and the best answers we can provide.
Placing an order
How long does it take to get my order?
This is an important question and it comes up often. There are two times you need to be aware of and you need to add them together to get an estimate of how long it will take to get your order.
First there is a processing time. It generally takes 2-4 business days to process your order and ship out. Second there is the shipping time (which is not the same as the processing time). It takes about a week for standard shipping (5-8 business days). You can reduce this time by paying for faster shipping such as 3-4 business days. Just remember the shipping time is in addition to the processing time. You need to add together both the production time and the shipping time to get a time estimate for your order.
* All custom products take 2-3 weeks to process and produce plus the shipping time.
The Estimated Delivery Date provided at checkout is an estimate only and does not guarantee delivery by a specific date or time. As this is an estimate only Churgoers.com cannot refund shipping charges for shipments arriving past the estimated delivery date.
I am nervous about whether or not my order will arrive in time. Who do I call or email to get a time estimate on my order?
In general, we cannot provide a precise delivery times beyond the processing time and shipping time estimates listed on your order.
You may call us at (855) 624 8724 or email us at email@example.com to confirm. If you need your order rushed for an event, please contact us as soon as possible, we will try our best to accommodate your order.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping costs vary depending on your selection of shipping method and order amount. You can check the shipping cost by simulating placing an order on our website and then canceling out of the order and empty your cart before filling in the payment information. We ship all church products by UPS, USPS or DHL.
Do you ship outside the United States?
We will ship to some foreign locations if the order is successfully placed by phone with approval. Such locations generally include Canada Europe and Japan and a few other locations. However because such shipments often involve the peculiarities of the various tariffs trade and import/export laws around the globe we may not be able to ship some orders overseas due to the cost of researching the laws for that location. Also if possible it is always easier for us to ship to a US-based shipping address and you will always save on shipping costs if you can arrange for a US-based address to receive the shipment. At this time due to advice from our bank concerning trends in fraud we reserve all rights to deny or proceed with orders shipping internationally.
* Churchgoers IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DUTY VAT TAX OR ANY OTHER FEES ASSOCIATED WITH IMPORTING OUR PRODUCTS. We cannot look up the final cost to you as your home country may (and often does) charge a fee at the destination. We cannot look up this information (and it often varies based on international law and code changes). We also cannot accept a rejection of that fee after the shipment leaves our factory and we cannot offer a return for a refund. Your home country will demand that Churchgoers pay the fee before receiving the returned item and Churchgoers.com cannot pay that fee. If you order from overseas you must either pay any import fees and duties your home country charges or else abandon the item or receive no refund.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept payment by credit card (VISA Mastercard Discover American Express) and PayPal.
**Churches may place orders using a PO with prior approval from Churchgoers.com.
My credit card was rejected by your online ordering system but I know my credit card or check is valid and has enough money to cover this order. Why won't your system accept my credit card?
Most credit card rejections are because your address does not match the address on record with your credit card company. Sometimes it's just a matter of a single digit off a mis-capitalization a dash or something very minor like that. Please try to re-enter your address to match what your credit card company has on file.
I tried to make a purchase several times but each time your system rejected the order (probably due to an address issue as explained above) and then my credit card or checking company called and said you had charged me for each transaction!
Actually your credit card security department is seeing the inquiries to your account not actual charges. Sometimes the inquiries appear as charges at first (ghost charges). Don't worry we didn't charge you for all those transactions. In a day or two the bank will remove all those charges on your account after they see no actual money was transferred. If we ever do make a mistake in overcharging you rest assured we will refund your money.
I see on your website "As Low As" pricing. After I place my order I am charged a higher amount. Why?
Churchgoers offers bulk pricing. Which means the more of an item you order the lower the price per item is. Please click the item you are interested in on our site to see the bulk pricing chart for each item.
What are your phone numbers?
Our toll free line is 1-855-624-8724.
Can we pick up our product at your location and avoid shipping charges?
Yes, but approval is needed from a Supervisor. Please call and ask to speak to a Supervisor to schedule a pick up time.
Can I get a sample?

Promo/Coupon Code Rules
Coupon Codes cannot be applied to sale items or combined with any other offers or promotions.
Many discounts/promotions hold a minimum purchase requirement amount for eligibility. This amount is the subtotal of the order, calculated before any taxes/shipping fees. This is a fixed dollar amount associated with the code and will not be accepted below the amount.
Coupon codes are limited to one per customer per purchase and are good for a one time use only per customer and can only be used on full price merchandise. The coupon codes have no cash value and if a return is made, your account will be credited only in the amount that you paid – total amount at checkout less the value of the coupon code. Coupon codes cannot be combined with other promotions.
Please note: Coupon codes are not retroactive and price adjustments will not be issued to orders placed prior to the start of any promotion.
Returns and Exchanges
What information do I need for the sizing?
You need to provide us with each your height with shoes when measuring with your church robe on. You can view our sizing chart at www.churchgoers.com/pages/size-color-charts* We do offer full-fit sizes for those customers in need of more room for girth.
What is the difference in fabrics?
(Shiny vs. Matte)
The main difference is the finish of the fabric. Our shiny gowns are a knitted fabric that has more of a shiny look to it giving the color of the gowns more brightness. Our matte gowns are a woven fabric which has more of a flat dull finish. Either option looks great.
Is it possible to customize my product?
Yes! We offer embroidery and printing on robes and stoles. Additional fees will apply. Please email us at email@example.com to request a quote.
Are the gowns see through and what is the quality of your robes?
No. Our church robes are tailored to the finest quality. What distinguishes us from other suppliers is that all our products are carefully manufactured using only the finest quality materials while still maintaining unbelievably low prices certain to suit your needs. Our dazzling array of choir robes come in a fine polyester finish smooth pleat and neck piping and a heavy duty zipper construction for trouble-free operation.
