Frequently asked questions
The product that I want is in stock but the system won't let me buy it
Some items, whilst in stock, are not available for delivery in some countries.
In addition, there are some products that are available but which you cannot buy using PayPal because their rules are very restrictive. If you think this is the case, try ordering with a different payment method
We try to ensure we are as fully stocked as possible. There may be times when we are waiting for stock from suppliers. If there is any significant delay in the dispatch of your goods we will notify you. You can always check on the progress of your order by going to your account. If you want to contact us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number.
If a product is out of stock, when you try to add it to your cart, you will see a message allowing you to ask us to notify you when the item is back in stock.
Do the prices include VAT
Yes, the prices are inclusive of VAT, however if you live in an area outside the UK, once you login to your account, the system will know you are outside the UK and the prices you will then see will be net (exclusive of VAT). However, you may be subject to taxes and duty in the country of delivery
Initially, email email@example.com and we will probably be able to advise you. In the event of an issue about the site that we cannot fix, they will advise the webmaster, who should be able to put it right almost immediately.
We have a full refund and replacement policy. Please read the terms carefully and follow the instructions when your make your order.

The cookies that we use allow us to know who you are. We do not receive any personal information but it means that the system remembers you for example, when you out a product in your basket and then look for another then put that in your basket, it will remember that you now have 2 items in the basket.
As you will appreciate, we are not able to answer personal health questions and you should consult your medical practitioner. However, if you concern is about the suitability of a product, having establsihed with your medical practitioner and health issues that may be relevant, we will ask the manufacturer if necessary before commenting to you. You can reach us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing us on 020 8680 2888
- You can only use one discount code per order. If you have 2 different codes you can apply one and see what your discount is and then apply the other and see if the discount is larger. If not, retype the first code. The system always accepts the last code applied.
- If you have no items in your cart and you apply a discount code, it will be shown as invalid. This is because there are no products to apply it to. As soon as you add a product to your cart it will become valid.

When you order, you may give us specific instructions as to delivery. Please note that many packages will not fit through letter boxes and so if you leave us special instructions, for example, "Please leave on doorstep" or "behind hedge" we will affix a label asking the delivery service to do that. BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK AS WE CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR NON-DELVERY AS WE CANNOT CONTROL THAT DELIVERY. IT MAY FOR EXAMPLE, BE STOLEN BEFORE YOU RETURN TO PICK IT UP.
DELIVER NOT ARRIVED BUT HAD NO SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS
If you have not given us specific instructions, delivery services should put a card through your letter box saying that they have attempted delivery and requesting you to arrange re-delivery or pick up. But in our experience the card is not always delivered as it should be by Royal Mail and we cannot be responsible for this. If you do not receive your delivery and the value was less than £100 you should contact your local sorting office. Ultimately, 99% of dispatches that cannot be delivered are returned to us after several weeks during which you can contact the sorting office. If you approach the sorting office and they do not have your package and it is subsequently returned to us, we will offer you a replacement or refund.
3-D Secure means that, in order to complete a transaction you will have to provide your 3-D Secure password. We use this because there is no other security that stops a person who may have stolen you card from making a transaction. It is important that you enroll for this service or you will find it increasingly difficult to complete online shopping transactions. You will be given the opportunity to enroll when you make an order if you have not already done so.
You have several ways to pay for your orders. • Credit or debit card • Direct debit • Cheque • PayPal or bank transfer. If you use the bank transfer method we will give you information as to where to pay but you will have top make your own arrangements with your bank for the transfer. Your goods will not be dispatched until we receive payment.
We aim to dispatch orders the same or next day providing the items you ordered are in stock. These will usually arrive next day or day after in UK but may take longer if we are dispatching outside UK. Please do not hesitate to check your account to see what progress has been made before contacting us
