Downloading a PDF tutorial is easy. Just follow the simple steps below. If you want, you can download our free “Beaded Bead Bracelet” and/or “Eye Candy Cuff” tutorials (located at the bottom of the page) to try it out.
Step 1 – Add the desired pattern(s) to your cart and checkout.
Add each of the tutorial(s) you wish to purchase to your shopping cart by clicking the “Add to Cart” button. Then, click on the shopping cart icon at the very top right of the page to view your shopping cart. From the shopping cart page, click the “Proceed to Checkout” button.
Step 2 – Create an account and place your order.
When you place an order with us (even if you are trying out one of our free tutorials) the shopping cart will ask for basic contact information. Please note: We never ask for your credit card information because all payments are securely processed through PayPal.
During checkout, you will be given the option to checkout as either a guest or to create/log into an account (if you don’t have an account, look for the checkbox to create an account on the Checkout page). The big benefit of creating an account is that you will be able to log into the My Account page at any time in the future and have instant access to all of the tutorials you have ever purchased from us. This can be a life saver if you loose an email order confirmation or, God forbid, your computer crashes! Also, if you log in while shopping, you can save items in a wishlist or shopping cart until you either remove or purchase them.
When done filling out the order form, click “Place order” at the bottom right of the Checkout page.
Step 3 – Go to your email, download and view your new tutorial.
Either way you checkout (guest or with an account), within moments of completing your order you’ll receive an automated order confirmation email from Simple Bead Patterns with the subject “Order Complete”. This email contains the link(s) to download your new tutorial(s). If you have not received your confirmation email, please check your spam folder to see if it was redirected there. If it was in your spam folder, please click “Not Spam” to whitelist our email for future correspondence. If you’re still unable to locate your order confirmation email (there may have been a typo in your email address on the order form), please contact us.
Click on each download link (one at a time if you purchased more than one) and select whether you would like to open and view it using your default PDF viewer, or save the file first to a specific folder on your computer and then open it. The program most widely used to view PDF files, and the one we like best, is Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is free. If you created or logged into an account during checkout, you can also access your tutorial(s) by going to the My Account page on our website.
