How can I cancel my order?

You can cancel your order before your order has been released to our warehouse for picking by contacting our customer service team. You can check the status of your order in My Account.

How can I change my order?

Unfortunately you are not currently able to change your order via 'My Account'. If you wish to change an item on your order for something else or you need to amend the delivery details, you will need to contact our customer service team. We are unable to make changes to an order once it has been released to the warehouse for picking. You can check the status of your order in My Account.

If I place an order for an out of stock item, when do you take the payment?

We will complete the payment on an order once the item is in stock and we are ready to dispatch the goods.

If you order an item that is awaiting stock and pay by either PayPal or card an authorisation hold is applied to the payment, which is how the bank verify the funds are available for the transaction. The issuing bank hold this balance as unavailable until we dispatch the goods, called settlement, or the hold "falls off." In the case of debit cards, authorisation holds can fall off the account, thus rendering the balance available again, anywhere from 1 to 8 business days after the transaction date depending on the bank's policy. In the case of credit cards, holds may last as long as 30 days, depending on the issuing bank.

I have an order on backorder, when will I receive it?

It is not always possible to obtain a date from our suppliers. If you would like us to try and obtain a date from our suppliers please use the contact form (it may take us time to obtain this information so we will not be able to respond to you straight away).

Orders that take more than 28 days to come into stock will require payment information to be re-authorised before we can dispatch the order. Please contact the customer service team on receipt of the stock notification email.

Part of my order is in stock, can the in stock items be shipped to me?

We will dispatch allocated items on your order automatically by the delivery method selected at the time the order was placed.
