Policies, & FAQ

At present due to COVID-19, many supply chain shortages, and lack of employees from some of our suppliers, and shipping agents, there may be longer shipping times, handling times, and some items will need to be shipped from one or other of our other warehouses which may add to longer shipping times. We appreciate your understanding in these matters. Hopefully this will change when President Trump gets re-elected.

ARS uses Mal's Ecom for a shopping cart, Mal's then sends your order through Paypal. Paypal is the only one who sees your information. Paypal is SSL secured, and you can be rest assured your information is safe. We take your security very serious here at ARS. For your convenience we also take Credit card orders over the phone, which are processed by Square. They are also a secure site, and your information is safe with them. For those without a credit card, or just don't want to use either of the other options we take CashApp as well. In order to use CashApp please contact us for the details of how to send it through CashApp. Some items on our site also uses a Square buy now button, that uses Google pay. On these items we can't run through Paypal as we have had numerous problems with Paypal, so we have had to resort to using Google pay. If you do not want to process through Google pay, you can still call us and we can process it over the phone through Square, without using Google pay.
