We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Delta, and Solo cards. All payments must be made online via our secure checkout system. Our site uses 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to ensure that all sensitive and personal information is encrypted.

We recommend that for your own protection, you use a safe delivery method that requires signature on delivery such as Recorded Delivery, as we cannot accept responsibility for products lost in the post. In the event of the goods proving to be faulty, we will reimburse ‘reasonable’ return postage costs.
What Happens If I’m Not Happy With My Order?
In the unlikely event that you aren’t happy with the goods that you have purchased, you may return them in their original condition within 7 days for a prompt exchange or refund.
