Is my credit card safe?
Absolutely! In fact, it's safer to use your credit card over the
Internet than in a restaurant or department store. Costume City
servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology
that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer
and AOL's browser so that only Costume City computers read a buyer's
If you still aren't convinced, take comfort in
this--in the unlikely event that someone makes unauthorized charges
on a credit card because of an Costume City transaction, the cardholder
will simply not be held liable. If you would like more information
about our credit card security policy, please read about our Safe & Secure
When are credit cards charged for
It is our policy to not charge your card until we confirm that your order has shipped. We do, however, obtain an authorization on your card at the time of your order for the full amount of your purchase. Please note that this may appear temporarily as a charge on your account statement, but it is an authorization only and will usually dismiss after 24-48 hours.
Does Costume City charge sales tax?
State laws require companies to collect sales tax from residents
shipping merchandise to states where the company has established
offices. The Costume City main office and warehouse operations are
in Washington; we are, therefore, required to collect sales tax
on orders shipped to locations in the state of Washington.
