Catalog Ordering

Q: I have more than one catalog from which I would like to order. Do I need to place one order from each catalog or may I combine them?
A: We will gladly accept orders from multiple catalogs. You may combine any item from active catalogs and the website into one order. If ordering from a catalog, please include the source code located on the back cover. Each catalog has its own source code and item prefixes. When you place your catalog order, you may notice a few variances in price. Prices are continually updated and may change after the catalog has printed. Our website always has the current prices.

Payment Methods

Q: Do you have any payment methods besides credit card?
A: Fire Mountain Gems accepts Visa, American Express, Discover and MasterCard credit cards, as well as debit and gift cards with one of the major credit card logos affiliated.

We also accept PayPal online payments. This payment option can be selected from the My Cart page or on step three of the checkout process. When selecting PayPal you will be redirected to log in to your PayPal account. Verify the details of your order and make changes if needed. You will then continue through the process to return to the Order Review page on the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads site and apply any account credit you may have available, redeem a gift certificate or enter a valid promo code. After reviewing the order to ensure all details are accurate, submit the order for processing. You will know the order has been successfully submitted when provided with an order confirmation number and the items are removed from your shopping cart. Please note that once a PayPal order has been submitted, we are unable to make any changes to the order that would increase the cost of the original order total.

If you would like to mail your order, personal checks drawn from a US bank account and money orders in US dollars are accepted. We also offer a check-by-phone service for customers who place telephone orders with our Customer Service representatives and have an account with a financial institution based in the United States. You will need to provide your bank name, account holder name, account number and routing number.

Wire transfer payments in US dollars are accepted for orders placed by phone, mailed to us or faxed in to 1-800-292-3473. All necessary wire transfer information will be provided to the customer once the order has been entered and the order total is available. There is a $15.00 transaction fee for all wire transfer payments and will need to be included in the amount transferred. We do not offer C.O.D. services.

Please note that prices are not guaranteed until an order has been entered into our system with a valid payment method.

Out-of-Stock Items

Q: What happens if an item is out of stock?
A: If an item is temporarily out of stock when you place your order, the item will automatically move to a backorder status. When the item is back in stock, it is sent to the shipping address on your order via first class mail, compliments of Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. At the time of shipping, the credit card that was used on your original order will be charged for the products in the backorder.

  • Customers may call Customer Service at any time to cancel any items being held on backorder


  • 30 days: After the item has been on backorder for 30 days, we will send you an email that we are still maintaining a backorder for you and will list the items for your convenience


  • 59 days: When the item has been on backorder for 59 days, the item will be automatically cancelled and we will send you a cancellation email notice

    At any point up until day 59, you may call or email customer service and request that the backordered item be held beyond the normal 59-day period, or ask that the item be immediately cancelled
