Frequently Asked Questions
What are your Office Hours?
Our office hours are Monday to Friday 9am‒5pm (excluding bank holidays). If you contact us with a query over the weekend by phone or email, your query will be answered as soon as possible on the following working day when our office re-opens.
Why won't my order proceed during the payment process?
If you receive a notice after submitting your card details that you need to check your address matches or that the payment has been rejected by your bank, this may be one of two things:
Our payment provider asks your bank to match three security points for your payment card used: CV2, Address, and Postcode, the most common problem is a non-match between the billing address you have supplied and the address your payment card is registered to, these must match exactly. This includes details and formatting of the address, so be careful with which line the address details are entered on, as well as the order in which the details are listed, flat numbers before or after street numbers, etc. If you have two failed transactions in a row because of an address or postcode non-match, any subsequent attempts will automatically fail within that same 24 hour period, but you can make another attempt after that period once you have the correct information. Sometimes it may require you to phone your bank to check how they have your address recorded for your payment card on their records, as this is what your billing address is being matched to.
If your payment card is enrolled in a 3D Secure programme such as Visa Verified or Mastercard Secure, this requires another window to open at the end of the payment process for you to enter in a verification code. If this window does not open and you receive an error message, it may be a browser issue or internet security setting that is blocking this verification window from opening. Please try using another browser to access our website or another device to access the internet, and try again.
Why haven't I received a confirmation email?
If you have not received your confirmation email please double check that you have completed your order fully. Once you have done this please check both your inbox and spam folder. If it still has not arrived please email email@example.com
Where is my order?
Orders placed with standard free delivery are sent using Royal Mail which usually take 3‒5 working days but please allow up to two weeks for delivery. Orders placed with Next Day Delivery are sent via a courier service who will only deliver Monday to Friday between 8am ‒ 6pm.

Can I cancel an order?
Please check your order carefully before giving final confirmation, as due to the fast turn-around at our warehouse of orders being picked and dispatched, we cannot cancel an order that has already been dispatched if you choose the wrong product or enter a wrong or incomplete delivery address.
This is particularly important for orders placed on a weekend or bank holiday as there are no staff available at our office to assist you during these times. Please contact us a soon as possible if you feel an error such as the above has been made to see if we can intercept the parcel once we return. If this is not possible, we will advise on the next course of action.
Can I return a product or order if I no longer want it?
Yes, providing you contact us within seven days of receiving your order, by sending us an email email@example.com and ask to return your item or order. This type of return would be at your own expense, and can only be accepted if the product's packaging has not been opened or tampered with, and is received by us undamaged and unused. Once we receive the returned item(s) we will then process a refund for you if you are eligible.
