Begin the Checkout Process

Start the checkout process by clicking the small pink shopping cart icon that appears in the upper right part of the website. One left click is usually all it needs.  A small window should open showing the items you have put in the cart and buttons allowing you to view your cart or go to checkout.  

Viewing and Changing Your Order Before Checking Out

You may choose to view or change an item in the shopping cart, or to proceed with the checkout process.  

If you want to change an item, adjust the quantity ordered, remove an item, or see the shipping costs before proceeding to checkout, click the View Cart button. If you choose to view your cart and later decide you wish to buy additional items, you will also have a link to continue shopping from within the view cart window.

Cancelling the Order

If you choose checkout, you will proceed to the payment process. Note that you may cancel the payment process at any time up to and including the login to PayPal. If you choose to cancel you will be returned to the website and your shopping cart will retain all the items not yet purchased.

6 Quick Step to Checkout

The checkout process is 6 quick and easy steps. After the 6th, you're turned over to PayPal. These steps are needed to establish the shipping and billing information. You'll have several opportunities in these 6 steps to leave comments or notes if needed.

Step 1: Choose to login to an existing account, create a new account, or checkout as a guest.  Logging in works the best because it will pre-fill much of the information required for checking out for you. There's a lost password link to assist in resetting your account password if you've forgotten it. If you can't recall the password, you may choose to proceed as a guest and deal with the password issue later.

Step 2: Asks for information about the seller, such as name address email and phone number. This data will be used by to processess your order.    

Step 3: Asks for deilvery information. If your delivery and billing addresses were flagged as being the same in step 2, the website will have already filled this in for you but you may still change it if you need to.

Step 4: Delivery method. There is only one: weight-based shipping, and it is pre-selected. Each item in your cart is tagged with a weight. The total weight is compared to the rates for the US postal service for the region the order is being shipped to. 6060eyes adds a small surcharge to cover the costs of shipping materials. If you require a faster method of shipping, we recommend you call us rather than complete your order through the website so we may advise you of your options.

Step 5: Allows you to select the preferred payment method--but we only offer one; PayPal, and it's also pre-selected. You must agree to the terms and conditions to continue. You may also see the terms and conditions in advance of placing an order by consulting the links at the website footer.  If you prefer not to use PayPal, please do not proceed with your online order. Call us and we'll advise you of your options.      

Step 6: You'll see a final summary of the order including taxes (if any) and shipping charges. This information will be passed to PayPal when you click the confirmorder button.    

Confirm Order and Pay With PayPal

Once you click to confirm the order in step 6, you'll be transferred to PayPal. Once logged into PayPal you will have the option of completing the sale or cancelling and returning to the website. If you cancel, your cart will retain the items you had placed in it, but PayPal will not charge you for them and the order will not be processed. If you decide to abandon the order and not complete it, we suggest you clear your cart so it will not have old items in it the next time you visit us.


We deal with security in detail elsewhere in the help section, but as a quick reassurance, we do not collect any credit card or financially-related customer information on our site.  We allow PayPal to do that for us.  That's why you won't see an "SSL" in effect until you are sent by our site to Paypal.
