If the correct price is higher, we will either contact you to advise and request instructions before dispatch or cancel the order notifying you accordingly.
We accept payment by all major debit and credit cards, except Diners Card and American Express. We accept payment with Paypal, Apple Pay and Google Pay.
Payment made by gift card can only be refunded in the form of another gift card.
Payment made via cheque or cash is NOT accepted.
PAYMENT BY PAYPAL: Any orders paid using PAYPAL, due to Paypal Fees being so high and now with an extra Cross Border fee neither of which are refundable, should you require a refund these fees will be deducted before any refunds are issued.
When giving your delivery address it is important to take care and ensure you give the correct information. Incorrect information can lead to delays and in some cases incur additional costs which you will be liable for.
For UK orders, it is very important to choose the correct shipping zone. Full information on shipping zones can be found on our Delivery page. Should the incorrect shipping zone be chosen at the checkout an invoice for the correct shipping will be issued. Only once this is paid will your order be dispatched.
The cost and timescale of delivery can be found on the Delivery page. All delivery timescales shown are an estimation from the dispatch day and cannot be guaranteed. From time to time there may be unpredicted delays which are out of our control. Once the parcel has left the warehouse, we are not liable for the timescale of delivery as this is out of our control.
We aim to dispatch all orders placed before 1pm Monday – Friday that same day. From time to time this may not be possible, and your parcel may have a delayed dispatch. If your parcel faces a delayed dispatch, we will try our best to notify you, however, this isn’t always possible and sometimes you may not be notified.
If you don't receive your parcel by the estimated delivery date you must report this to us within 5 days. Failure to report to us in this timeframe will result in us unable to claim for any loss and will waiver your right to a replacement order or refund.
All delivery is on a signatory service meaning a signature is required upon delivery of your parcel, and it cannot be left in a safe place. Should you leave instructions for your parcel to be left without a signature, it is at your own risk, and we are therefore not liable for loss or damage.
Delivery will be attempted 2-3 times. If your order is returned to the warehouse due to failed delivery it will result in a return to sender fee and an additional shipping charge to be redelivered. Return fees can be found on our Delivery page.
All shipments outside of the UK are sent DDU (Delivery Duties Unpaid). This means when your parcel arrives in the destination country you will be liable to import duties and taxes. It is important we have a mobile number and email address (please check they are correct). Once your parcel arrives in your Country, you will be contacted by the Courier (check your spam folder). The Courier will send you a payment link to collect any taxes, duties, handling fees due on your order before delivery.
