3. Payment Options & Wait Times
Available payment methods include Paypal, personal check, or money order. You may pay upfront if you would like, but we don’t require payment until we are ready to begin on your whip(s). We will send you an email to let you know when that time comes. If we don’t have your color(s) in stock, we may ask for your payment a few weeks before we are ready to start on your whip, to give our supplier time to ship your color(s) to us.
We work on these whips in the evenings after our ‘roo hide whipmaking work is done for the day, and they don’t take as long as our kangaroo hide whips to make, so the wait time is generally shorter than it is for our kangaroo hide whips. However, we have been receiving orders for the PH whips faster than we have been able to make them, so there will be some wait.
Other Important Information
If you live in the continental US, standard shipping is USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail and costs $9 for one whip. Shipping is $12 for a pair. If your shipping address is outside the continental US, shipping methods and prices may be discussed privately via email.
All whips are shipped with the thong and handle as two separate pieces. Easy-to-follow illustrated instructions for how to attach the thong to the handle using the French Grapevine (pictured to the left) are included with each whip. Trust us, it’s super easy. But if you have trouble or would prefer an even simpler attachment method, we also include brief instructions for how to tie your thong on the traditional Florida cow whip way with a series of regular overhand knots.
If you are interested in ordering a replacement thong or would like to inquire about pricing and availability of a custom PH design, please contact us directly at PerformanceHybrid@midwestwhips.com.
