Do you charge for a credit card and PayPal transactions?
- UK Debit Card: No Surcharge
- Credit Card: No Surcharge
- Corporate Card: 1%
- PayPal: No Surcharge
Why do we charge a surcharge?
In order to bring you the lowest prices, our profit margins are very low. Due to this, we are unable to absorb the surcharges incurred by the banks when using a corporate card. We believe the fairest thing to do is to charge for when they are used, rather than adding it to our prices for everybody. There are no charges on personal debit or credit card transactions however.
Why has my PayPal payment been refunded?
Your PayPal payment will usually only be refunded if you have provided us with an unconfirmed address.
What does PayPal confirmed mean and why do you only accept payments via PayPal this way?
Although the vast majority of unconfirmed addresses are not fraudulent, PayPal offers confirmed addresses as an additional layer of fraud protection. Confirmed addresses help guard against stolen credit cards and identity theft. In order to maintain security, we can only ship to confirmed addresses when using PayPal. You can however ship to alternate delivery addresses when using a debit/credit card.
What time do you process orders until?
We process orders from Monday to Friday up until 5pm (Excluding Bank Holidays).
