Once you have entered your payment information and your payment has been confirmed, you will then be directed to a final confirmation screen displaying the details relating to your order.

We will acknowledge receipt and acceptance of your order by email. The contract between us is not formed until we confirm that we have accepted your order. If you discover you have made a mistake with your order please contact us immediately.

No payment will be deemed to have been made until we have cleared funds and we will not accept your order or dispatch the products until we receive payment in full.
