Bon Jour!

Thank you for choosing us for your south Louisiana Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp Pop and Oldies shopping needs. We hope you'll find the items that you are looking for!

We ship
most orders of in-warehouse merchandise within 48 hours by either US Postal Service Parcel Post, 1st Class, Media Mail or UPS. We offer standard ground shipping which we term as "STANDARD SHIPPING" for all non-express shipments (see rate chart below). We reserve the right to ship "best way" on all non-express shipments. "Best way" means that we will ship the packages by way of what we feel is the surest and quickest method for the s&h fee charged. "Best way" shipping is either by USPS or UPS ground. We can ship your order via UPS Next Day Air or UPS 2nd Day air for delivery the following or 2nd business day. Express shipping is not included in the standard shipping & handling "STANDARD SHIPPING" cost. If you would like Express shipping, please email us immediately after placing an order with instructions to do so. We will then email you with a total shipping and handling fee, along with an invoice for the difference in cost. If you have any questions regarding this, please email us prior to placing your order. Digital downloads are downloadable immediately upon payment.

For payment,
we now have two different secure on-line payment processors, PayPal Processing for digital downloads only and Authorize.net for physical items or mixed orders.

For digital downloads, we accept VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, and PAYPAL. You DO NOT have to have a PayPal account to make a purchase. Your credit card or even check card is welcome. Your credit card statement will show "PAYPAL  *SWALLOWPBNS". Digital downloads are downloadable immediately upon payment.

For physical product or mixed orders, we accept VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER and PAYPAL for phone or online orders. Mail in orders may be paid with money orders or cashier's check besides credit cards. Sorry no C.O.D.s.

Credit card security measures have mandated that customers MUST provide the last 3 digits of the CVV security code printed on the back side of the credit card when providing account information to complete a transaction. Address verification will also be completed before orders are shipped when charged to an credit card account. To avoid delays, orders must be shipped to an address on file in the cardholder's credit card account. If the shipping address requested is NOT on file with the credit card issuer (bank,etc.) for that account, the transaction may be canceled.

Special arrangements can be made for "gift sending". Phone 337-363-2177 to make arrangements.

For ours and our customers' protection, we reserve the right to delay and/or refuse shipment based on billing discrepancies.
