How do I purchase a class?
To purchase a class, simply click on the Buy Now button. Once you pay for the class via Paypal be sure and click the button on the last page of Paypal as shown below. You will then receive an e-mail that will contain a link to your class and your login information.
What payment methods are accepted for purchasing classes?
Currently, Paypal is used for purchasing all of the classes at eCraft Classes.
What if I don't have a Paypal account? Credit and Debit Cards are accepted via Paypal checkout. You do NOT have to have a Paypal account to use this function. Simply follow through with the checkout. Enter your regular email address in the Paypal email address field. When you reach the Paypal payment page, click on “Don’t have a Paypal account?” to fill out your debit or credit card information. Continue following the Paypal prompts to complete the checkout.
What if I forget to click that button on Paypal, get an error message or some how don't receive my login info?
Many email providers are stopping our emails at the server and not allowing them to be delivered to your inbox. Unfortunately, this is out of our control. Because of this, we will also manually email login information to customers/students within 24 hours to assure that you do receive this information. It's possible that from time to time we may not receive your class purchase confirmation. If you don't receive your login information within 24 hours please forward your Paypal receipt to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then issue you new login information within 24 hours.

We have class catagories for all types of craft classes. Everything from sewing, doll making, paper arts, quilting, crochet and many more. Please view the classes page to review all the catagories.
Are the classes and information in them Copyrighted?

Anyone caught sharing the information or copying it to create their own class or copy of the designs risk being prosecuted to the fullest exent of the law.
I just took a class and have a question for the teacher, how do I contact them?
To contact a teacher simply click on the "Contact Teacher" box from inside the class you are currently taking. The link to contact your teacher is at the bottom of the main page of your class.
I tried to access my class but it expired. What happened?
All classes have a expiration date set by the teachers. Before you purchase a class you will be able to see that set expiration. Most classes expire with 7-10 days after you purchase them. It's advisable that you take your class shortly after purchasing it. If you need to revisit the class just be sure and do so prior to the expiration date.
Can I purchase multiple classes at the same time?
You will need to purchase your classes one at a time. The reason for this is all of the classes are not posted by the same teachers and therefore each of them have their own Paypal accounts.
I would like to be notified when new classes are added. How do I do that?
You can sign up for our mailing list at the top right corner of most of the pages through out eCraft Classes.
