Welcome to POP! 

Thanks for stopping by! While we are a helpful bunch we do not provide technical support for your machine.  You must know how to download and unzip files.  We do not provide support for transfer of files from your computer or software program to your machine.  Facebook, Youtube and Google are excellent resources. 

Here is a general FAQ that might be helpful! 

How do I create an account? Click HERE

Do I have to have an account to shop? You must have an activated account on the website to purchase.  When creating an account you will be sent a link to activate that account.  You must complete this step.  Emails tend to go to spam, so please check those folders. 

The coupon code is not working, now what? We have weekly design releases on most Fridays.  The deal of the week is on the header of the website. The header lays out the deal and which items are available.  The discount is automatic, so if the discount is not showing in your cart you have the wrong items in your cart. Deals end each Sunday at 11:59PM EASTERN. 

Does your site warn users of a previous purchase? YES! Please read that FAQ HERE. 

How do I get my files? Files are available for immediate download. They are also sent in email form from Shopify AND stored in your account history for easy access later. Simply sign in and go to Order History>Open order>Download Here.

I cannot download my file, what now? If you cannot download your file directly from checkout please try downloading from your order history or email sent with links.  If you are having incomplete download errors on your PC this is a PC issue.  The best thing to do is clear your cache and restart your PC.
