Frequently Asked Questions
Video from Santa Claus
1. When will I receive my video?
Your Santa Claus video should be delivered to your e-mail address no later than within 3 hours from receipt of your payment. The above refers to quick online payments. When payment is made by traditional bank transfer, it can take up to 7 working days.
After that time, please check your inbox or log into your account.
If you still can’t find the link to your video, please follow these steps:
a) Please check your email address – you should find all the details about delivering your video in a data preview.
b) Is your e-mail address correct? – please write in your e-mail’s search box „video from Santa Claus”; some domains put our mails straight into spam or the advertising offer folder.
c) Let us know if you still are not able to find an e-mail from us – write to us at [email protected]
2. Can I order one joint video for two children?
Yes, this option is now available. To order a video for siblings, please select the Joint Video option.
3. What is the difference between the single and the joint version?
The single version is addressed to one child. The joint version refers to two or more children. In the joint version, you will find exactly the same content as in the single except some differences in particular films.
4. Will I get a DVD with my video?
Unfortunately, we don't provide this service. You will receive your video in the form of a link delivered to your e-mail address. After downloading the file, you will be able to record it on a CD or DVD yourself. Please find below a description of that process.
5. My child's name is not on the list, what should I do?
Check if the name you are looking for is not listed in another variation, e.g. in a diminutive form, etc. If the name you need is really not on the list, please add it through the form (next to the name list) so that we can add it to our database in the future and let Santa reach all children with his message!
6. Are the photos and information I've added to the video confidential?
Photos and any other information are used exclusively by our application to create a video message and are not exploited in any way or stored for other purposes. We do not share that information even with our staff. The recipient of the message won’t know them either. Our staff do not check the content of your video messages or letters unless you send us a request to do so.
7. Can I edit my video after the order has been placed?
You can edit your video anytime (except changing a name of a recipient). Please log into your account and press “edit”. You can change the photos and other information in the video many times.
8. The video is not playing on my computer, what can I do?
If the video is not playing, you probably don't have the right codec packs or the latest Flash version installed on your device. To display the video correctly, please use the links below:
Adobe Flash link
Codec pack link

9. How can I record my video on a CD/DVD or other media?
To record the video on a disk, you will need:
1. A computer with a CD or DVD burner
2. A blank CD or DVD disk
After downloading the video on your computer:
3. Insert a blank disk into the burner.

On the top of the envelope, you’ll find a big Polish Post Office stamp and smaller colourful stamps.
5. Why hasn't my letter arrived yet?
If after 10 working days from receipt your payment your letter still hasn't arrived, please contact us. You should have confirmation of payment sent to your e-mail from our service. There can be a few reasons it occurs:
a) the date of payment confirmation - the confirmation date of your money transfer can differ from the day you settled the bill. Various banks count that time differently and it can take even up to 7 working days.
b) your payment was declined because of some payment errors. Please check your payment status in your account.
c) missing data – if in your order there are some missing empty fields, we cannot send the letter. We will try to contact you by e-mail or by phone to fix it.

Yes. All changes of the letter’s content can be done through your account but only before we confirm your payment. Then your letter will be produced by our elves and put into an envelope. Because of that, you can no longer change it.
10. Can the letter be returned?
Yes.

The recipient of the gift will also not know who sent the present, that way you can give an anonymous gift.
Our staff do not check the content of your letter/s. They do it only at your request to correct grammatical mistakes after receiving an e-mail from you.
12. Where are the letters posted from?
All letters, with the consent of Santa Claus, are posted from Warsaw so that they can reach their addressees around the world and on other continents even faster.
