1. What’s it like at Champainting?

It’s a fun, creative and unique night out!  Simply bring your favourite bottle of wine or other beverage (excluding Pop-up Sessions) and enjoy our relaxed and fun environment where our talented artists guide you step-by-step how to paint the session’s featured artwork.  Come alone, come with a date, come with friends!  Using acrylic paint on a canvas, you’ll be surprised at the masterpiece you create!  As we say, Walk in a Skeptic, Leave with a Masterpiece!

17. Purchasing your Order using Backpocket

The hereunder information is provided by Backpocket. WE have set it out below for OUR Guests convenience. Please note that Backpocket simply offers a different method of payment. Its terms and conditions do not vary, modify or change Champainting’s terms and conditions and policies, including OUR Reschedule Policy, whatsoever.

What is Backpocket?

Backpocket is an Australian-owned service that lets shoppers split payment at checkout with their mates. No more chasing up cash or stressing about footing the bill. Paying with Backpocket is free for all users and does not affect your or your friends’ credit score or rating.

How does Backpocket work?

Simply checkout with Backpocket as the payment method, pay your share and your booking will be secured! Forward the payment link for friends to pay. No app or sign up required. All for free.

What happens if my friends don’t pay?

Backpocket gives your group a week to settle up. If payment isn’t made within this time, don’t worry, **the entire booking is still secured**. You can always settle the group’s tab yourself and invite others to join you. Alternatively, you can contact Champainting to make changes to your booking. We’ll give your group plenty of notice of the payment deadline, and we’ll alert you if the payment period does lapse. Once the payment period lapses, you can request Backpocket to extend the payment due date. Otherwise, as the group organiser, we may charge you the remaining amount. There are no fees for late payment.

When is the booking finalised?

When you checkout with Backpocket your booking is secured and processed immediately. It’s just like paying with any other payment service, the only difference is you only pay your share. If your friends don’t pay up in time, your purchase is still secured. There is never any risk of losing your booking.

Is it free to use?

Backpocket is completely free to use for all group members. No app needed and we don’t charge any fees, ever. Backpocket makes money by charging sellers to use our unique checkout service. That’s how we stay fee free for customers, forever. Yeah really. It’s free.

No account, app or registration is needed for friends to pay. Just share the link and they can pay instantly. It’s fuss-free.
