What security do you provide for online purchases?

We use 'secure socket layer' (SSL) technology to encrypt your payment card to ensure your details are safe. We also use Verified by Visa (VbV) and MasterCardĀ®, Secure Code (MSC) (3D Secure).

What is 3D secure?

Verified by Visa (VbV) and MasterCardĀ®, Secure Code (MSC), often referred to as 3-D Secure or Payment Authentication, is the latest fraud prevention initiative launched by the card schemes as a more secure method for authenticating the cardholder at the time of the transaction. Both schemes work in the same way by using personal passwords, set by you the cardholder, to add an extra layer of protection when you shop online. The instructions that you see on the pages within our site are coming direct from your card issuing bank (eg, Halifax, Barclays, Sainsbury's) and any information that you submit on these authentication screens are securely passed to your card issuing bank, no information will be captured, stored or viewed on any system.

Why has my card been declined?

There can been several reasons why your card has been refused. For further details please contact your card issuer.

Can I get a VAT refund?

All total prices for goods and services at the checkout represent the total price payable by the customer for those items, regardless of the address for delivery. For deliveries to the EU, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment and will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU. Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, may vary for each customer.

Can I get a VAT receipt?

Yes, we always provide a VAT receipt in with your parcel. Alternatively, you can log into your account online and print off another copy.
