Q: How do I navigate around the online store?
A: Kindred Sole has developed a simple, easy to use search navigator to help you around the website. You can search by shoe category, i.e.: Work Shoes - Lace Up Shoes or by fashion trend.
If you click on a shoe you will see a more detailed product page. This will include the ability to zoom in on the product, as well as listing size availability, material and price.
Q: Sizing and shoe information
A: We want you, the customer to be confident and assured when you are choosing a pair of Kindred Sole shoes that you pick the right size first time. This is why Kindred Sole offers its customers ways to measure your feet so that you can find the right shoe size for you. Shoe Measuring Guide is the printable PDF downloadable shoe size chart to ensure that you are confident when measuring your feet and deciding on what shoe size you are. In addition to this we offer another Shoe Measuring Guide which is an easy to follow measuring guide where you can measure your feet and then translate the size of your feet into your shoe size. There is also a Shoe Size Conversion Chart to assist you in your sizing queries. We also detail each shoes fabric composition, for instance Upper: Leather, Lining: Leather Sole: Other Materials and this is on the right hand side of the product in the tab entitled Details. However if you are still unsure on your shoe size please email us at email@example.com
Q: How do I pay?
A: For your convenience Kindred Sole offers two choices of payment methods. You can choose between SagePay, previously known as Protx which is a secure payment module or PayPal which is world renowned. Kindred Sole accepts all major cards with the exception of AMEX. You can be confident that your personal details are safe with a trusted payment provider and Kindred Sole never holds your card details.
Q: Problems Processing my order
A: Please ensure that you enter the correct 'Billing Address' in the 'Customer Address' area for the card you are using. The most common problems occur when customers fail to enter the full 'Billing Address'. Please also ensure that you enter the Card Holder Name correctly (as seen on the card) as this can also prevent an order processing. Any further issues please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help
Q: MasterCard Secure Code and Verified by Visa
A: At payment stage after entering your address and card details and confirming, you may be asked for a Securecode. Securecodes are a new way of protecting your card from online shopping fraud. MasterCard (including Maestro) and Visa are offering this service; all you need to do is simply register with your card provider and create your own online securecode, much like a new ATM number. At payment stage you will be prompted for your Securecode - this code will not be shared by your card provider with anyone else. This extra security can give you even more confidence when shopping online.
