INFORMATION

If you have any queries what-so-ever, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be more than happy to help! My contact details are at the bottom of this page.

 

ORDERING

Ordering online is easy. I have a simple, easy to navigate site with a full product catalogue and a clear and concise shopping basket system that only takes a couple of clicks for you to order what you want!  

All products come with a full description of the product, and further information such delivery costs. 

All prices are in UK Pounds Sterling £ (GPB). You can pay either by Paypal, or by credit or debit card using Stripe. Both have secure SSL payment environments. Card payments are governed by Stripe's privacy policy. The delivery address details are entered during checkout. We only accept orders for delivery to the buyers billing address. 

Discount codes:

If you have a discount code, then please add it into the coupon box at the checkout screen, and your total saving will be automatically calculated for you. Discounts cannot be applied retrospectively, so make sure you enter the code at the time of placing your order, or you will lose the benefit. Percentage discounts do not apply to postage, which is added at the end of your order. 

DELIVERY ADDRESSES & PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

The delivery address as given at the time of payment is the only address to which I can ship. Therefore delivery addresses can not be amended or changed after the payment has been made. Orders with incorrect delivery addresses will need to be cancelled.

Please note: I do not deliver to transient addresses (hotels, camp sites etc); deliveries to communal buildings (offices etc) may be delivered to reception only, where any signature obtained constitutes a successful delivery. 

 

ORDER CONFIRMATION & ACCEPTANCE

Once you have placed and paid for your order, the automatic system will send you a confirmation email. You may also receive a confirmation of payment from Paypal. So please be careful to enter your email address correctly and be sure to check your email regularly. 

I then manually check the details of your order and if all the delivery details are correct, I will confirm via email that your order has been accepted and is being processed for dispatch. 

Almost all orders go through without a hitch! However, if we encounter any problems with your order, such as invalid delivery address, then I will need to contact you to query these. In the unlikely event that I can not accept your order, you will be notified by email that your order has been cancelled and a full refund issued through the payment method you used (Paypal or Stripe).
