For international deliveries, the postage price for delivery is charged on a per parcel basis. The checkout process assumes the delivery is for a single parcel only. The majority of orders are sent by one parcel however in rare cases, the delivery may require more than one parcel to be sent. If this occurs, we will contact you for an additional payment to cover the postage charges prior to dispatch. You will also be given the option to cancel your order. This would normally be applicable to large orders where a high quantity of products has been ordered.
You must pay for your order before it is dispatched (except account customers) and you can do this by:
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Delta, Switch, Solo, Eurocard or JCB. We aim to debit money from your account within two working days after receiving your order however this can depend on your service provider. Should your payment decline we recommend double checking all the details entered to make sure these were correct as often a typing error can be the cause. If they were correct you will need to contact your card issuer to find out the reasons why.
PayPal / PayPal Express
Payment method available through website only.
BACS/CHAPS payment transfers are accepted for higher value orders (you will be responsible for all charges).
Orders may be cancelled prior to dispatch providing the status in "My account" is not set to "Packed (Awaiting Despatch)" or "Despatched". If the order is either of these two statuses, the order will need to be dispatched with our couriers. However, when delivery is attempted, you can refuse the order from the courier and the goods will be returned to us for a refund. Please note: For any unwanted dispatched orders, you will be liable for any postage charges incurred.
Cooling off period
Customers have a seven working day cooling off period from the day after receipt of the item. During these seven working days, you may decide your item is not suitable and wish to return the order.
