For all non account customers, you may pay by credit or debit card, electronic bank transfer or cheque. If you are paying by cheque, goods will not be dispatched until the funds have cleared. If you wish to pay by electronic bank transfer, please contact sales for our bank details. We accept the following payment cards; Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, Mastercard Debit, UK Maestro, Electron and Visa Delta. International customers may pay by credit or debit card, Amex or electronic bank transfer, but when paying for goods by credit or debit card, the card holder must authenticate their card under the 3D Secure scheme during checkout.
Business customers who have a credit account with us can check out in the normal way but need to select the invoice with order option in the payments section. If you wish to enquire about opening a credit account, please telephone our accounts department. Please note that credit accounts are only available to business customers. Terms and Conditions apply.
If you are paying by credit or debit card, the registered address of the cardholder will be used as the main invoice/billing address on the invoice and goods will be shipped to that address. If you wish for your goods to be shipped to an address other than that of the registered card holder, then you will need to check the appropriate box on the first stage of the checkout process, then provide the delivery information when prompted.
In cooperation with our merchant bank and payment service provider we have implimented 3D Secure (Three Domain Secure) which is the payment industry's internet authentication standard often referred to as Mastercard Securecode, or Verified by VISA. This process has been developed by the major card schemes to protect you the cardholder, and us the merchant from fraudulent or unauthorised use of your card. 3D Secure can be thought of as an online version of 'Chip and Pin' technology, whereby the cardholder has a personalised password registered with their card that is entered during the checkout process. Registration is a voluntary 'once only' process that takes only a few minutes and most of the major issuing banks have adopted this security measure. If you decline the invitation to authenticate your card under the 3D Secure scheme, you may continue checking out in the usual way but we will only ship your goods to the registered address of the cardholder. All international orders paid for by credit or debit card must be authenticated under the 3D Secure scheme.
