ORDER INFORMATION

Q: How do I place an order?
A: Orders can be placed directly on our website. If you are unable to process an order on joann.com®, please send an email to Customer Service for assistance.

Q: What if I need to cancel or change my order?
A: We are unable to modify or cancel orders. If you want to change or add to your order, please place a separate order for any item not in your original order. Any unwanted items can be returned. For product return instructions, please visit our Return Policy. Once the returned item has been received at our warehouse, a credit for the product price and tax or processing fees will be issued to your account in approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

Q: How can I check the status of my order?
A: To track the status of your order, click the Track Order link in the upper right-hand navigation area. You will need your order number and the e-mail address used to place the order. Please allow 2-3 days for your order status to post. If you are a registered user, you can also check your order status using the "Account" link on the home page.

Q: What payment methods can I use?
A: You may pay for your order with a VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit card or debit card, or for U.S. Customers only, a JOANN Gift Card. Currently, we are unable to accept payment by check, or payment by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express branded gift cards. At this time, you may only use one credit card per order. joann.com® will add an authorization for funds to your payment method for the total amount or your purchase. Once your order ships, the charge will appear on your payment method. There may be multiple charges if your order is sent in many different shipments. All joann.com® orders prices will be displayed and charged in U.S Dollars, USD. For international customers, additional credit card fees may apply; your credit card company may charge a fee for converting payment into USD. Please note that joann.com® does not offer a layaway plan.

Q: Why are there multiple authorizations on my credit card?
A: You may see multiple authorizations on your account if you attempted to process an online order multiple times by hitting the "submit" button. Even if your order did not process, you may still see an authorization on your account. An authorization is a pending charge or hold on a payment account and is not a true charge. The authorization on your credit card or PayPal account allows joann.com to make sure the account is valid and has the necessary funds available to process your order. Your payment method is not charged until we ship your order. The release of an authorization may also appear as a refund on a credit card statement, or the authorization may be deleted from the account entirely. The void may take 7 business days (or longer, depending on your bank) to appear.
