Purchase Orders and Pro Formas
Please do not fax purchase orders to us without first emailing us at email@example.com with your intended order, payment method, order number, and your invoice/delivery address details.
We will check stock availability, and reply with a pro-forma invoice with details for payment by bank transfer (BACS) or cheque.
Please note we do not ship until we have received payment, and we aren't able to provide credit. If you intend to purchase by credit card, please follow the standard shopping basket procedure if possible - this is the quickest method and stock levels will be automatically checked for you before your purchase.
You may check using the shopping basket what payment methods are valid for your country.
Customers not wishing to use Paypal or pay by Credit Card may pay by Cheque, or by Bank Transfer. Please do not send cheques without confirming your price with us first - much as we like the idea of free money arriving on our doorsteps, we don't want to have to send back cheques for incorrect amounts.

Ordering without VAT (EU Businesses outside the UK)
EU Businesses with a valid EU VAT Registration Number may order without paying UK VAT. Please contact us *before* payment with your business details and VAT Registration Number, and we will send you details how to pay without VAT. Any VAT refunded after your purchase may be liable for a small charge to cover our card processing or bank transfer fees. We cannot refund VAT after you are invoiced. Regular customers in the EU must pay VAT at 20%, but will not be liable for any additional VAT in their own countries. There is no VAT payable for anyone outside the EU (e.g. US, Australia etc.)
How we calculate Prices and Shipping
If you are in the UK, we total the price, add shipping costs (£8 or £12 for 8+Kg packages, with slight increments for packages above 15Kg), then add VAT to that (20%).
If you are in the EU, we total the price, add shipping costs (these vary according to which country you live in, and the total weight of the items), then add sales tax to that (20%, as we are based in the UK). If you are an EU registered business, we do not have to charge you sales tax, if you provide evidence of your EU VAT number before we take your order (see instructions above).
If you are located outside the EU, we total the price, and add shipping costs (according to country and total weight). There is no sales tax payable, which is why an order sent to Australia can cost the same as an order sent to Austria.
Note: you are liable for any customs charges payable.
If you don't see your destination, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you instructions
When will I receive my order?
Unless there is a problem with your order (or it is a system build), we will fill and despatch same day, for typically next day delivery in the UK or longer for International Orders (this includes Ireland, and Northern Ireland). Please check your mail a few hours after ordering just in case there is a problem - we'll get right back to you. Next day delivery in the UK occurs 98% of the time - but delivery times are not guaranteed, and we do not automatically split orders if items are not available. If you are not available to receive your order, after several attempts it will eventually be returned to the local depot of our courier company - it is your responsibility to retrieve it. In some countries non-deliverable items will eventually be returned to the sender (i.e. us). We will either refund or resend orders at our discretion in this instance, and additional shipping costs may be payable. Please do not specify a PO Box or forwarding service as your address, as our couriers do not ship to them.
When you receive your order...
Please check everything in your order is correct and working within 48 hours of receiving your order.
How we handle returns

You, the customer are responsible for the shipping cost of returning items to us for any reason.
