Answering your questions on the practicalities:

What payment method do you accept?

All online customer payments are conducted through Paypal. Once you have finished adding items to your basket simply click “checkout” on your basket page and you will be taken to the paypal gateway for payment.

You can pay using the Paypal service using debit or credit card, even if you don’t have a paypal account – simply enter your card details in the “pay with credit or debit card” section of the payment gateway.

How do I know what shipping I will be charged?

In order to proceed to checkout first you need to calculate your shipping (or delivery) rate. To do this just click “calculate shipping” in the Basket Totals section of the basket page. This will then ask you to select a country and region, or enter a postcode. Once you have completed this just click “calculate shipping” and the correct delivery charge will be added to your order.

I have a Voucher Code, how do I apply it?

That’s great! Add all of the items that you want to purchase to your basket in the usual way and then, once you’re ready to checkout enter your voucher code in the coupon code box on the basket page and click “apply coupon” as shown here:

Most of our voucher codes can’t be used in conjunction with others so if you’ve applied one voucher code but you’ve got a better offer you want to apply, simply remove a coupon by clicking the “remove coupon” link in the Basket Totals section.
