On-Line Shopping - What is it?
The principle of the On-Line Shopping Cart, sometimes called a Trolley or Basket, is similar to the familiar in-store concept where the shopper takes a cart or basket around the store with them. On-line, of course, the basket is a virtual one, not actual, and a computer remembers which goods have been selected. It also automatically totals and displays what you've spent so far, saving you the bother.
How do I order something?
Either choose the product category you want from the menu or use the Search facility to locate items you are interested in. From the resulting list, choose the item you want.
To order the item, enter the quantity you wish to purchase and, if there are several size options, select the size you want. Having made your selection, press the "Buy" button to place the order. The item is added to the cart and you are shown the list of items ordered so far.
You can display the shopping cart's contents at any time to examine which items you have so far collected. You can alter the quantity of each item or, if you've changed your mind, remove it from the cart. You can even empty the whole cart, if you wish.
When you have added all your purchases to the cart, you then complete the order. Select the appropriate shipping method, fill in the delivery address and credit card details and confirm the purchase. The order will be sent to us and a confirmation emailed to you. We will despatch your order as soon as possible.
We do not debit your credit card until we despatch the goods. For further details see Terms and Conditions.
CREDIT CARD PAYMENT
Our shopping cart service is certified secure and card processing is handled by HSBC Global Payments. We do not store card information on this site.
Payment may also be made by cheque, postal order, bank transfer, international money order and cash.
SHOPPING CART PROBLEMS
Cart Not Listing/Retaining Items
Sometimes a cart will either not register items or will only list the latest item selected. The usual reason for this is that you have not accepted our Cookie. There are a number of reasons why you may not have accepted a Cookie, including: your web browser is set to ignore them; you were offered a Cookie but refused to accept it; your web browser is too old to handle them. For further information see Help: Cookie.
Many web sites now send out "cookies" when you access them. Cookies are a way of keeping track of your access to a web site, so that when you submit new information or return to the site after a short while the web site can say, "Ah, yes. I know this visitor."
Cookies are benign. They are stored on your computer but cannot harm it. They cannot discover more about you than the information they originally send you.
Our shopping cart service sends out cookies so we can positively say, "This new item is for your personal shopping cart." It's needed by the web site so it can track your order details, and if your internet connection breaks it can pick up your cart again when you resume, providing it's within a reasonable time.
If you refuse our cookie you may have difficulty maintaining a shopping cart. If you do experience problems then please note the exact product details and and send your order by post. We will add the appropriate shipping cost to your order.
If you need more information on our stock list and service, our web site or our shopping cart service (how it works, security aspects and so forth) please email us. We will be pleased to help.
