Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your card company will convert the transaction to US Dollars or your own currency.
We accept Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express and Solo cards all via Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account in order to make a purchase as you can do one off payments usings the secure server. When you checkout Paypal will provide an option to pay for non-Paypal customers. When you initially go through to the payment page and it asks you to log in you can scroll to the bottom of the page and it has a link called Pay with a debit or credit card which you can click on. The Paypal site and payment system is 100% secure and has the pad lock sign in the search bar to assure you of this.
If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us and we will correct the mistake.

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive.
You are entitled to cancel your order and return the goods within 7 working days for a full refund minus the delivery fee. Do this by contacting us by email and quoting the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value. We do not refund postage charges incurred in returning your item unless you are returning the item because we sent you an item incorrectly or it is faulty. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.
If your item is not faulty it must be returned 'as new' with all packaging intact for a full refund minus the delivery charge. We are unable to accept items for return once they have been opened or used.
None of these terms affect your legal rights and these are not diminished in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from the terms to minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.
Returning an item
To return an item please package it carefully, pay the postage costs and pack a copy of your original invoice details. Items are your responsibility until received by us so we recommend you use a recorded delivery service. If a return is the result of our mistake we will also refund your return postage charges.
If you don't have your original invoice to hand please write your order number and email address clearly on a separate piece of paper and include this with your return so that we can trace your original order.
Please send all returns to:
