Here you can find the answers to many of our Frequently Asked Questions. Please take a look through these and if you are still unsure then get in touch and we will be happy to help.

What payment methods can i use?

We now offer an alternative card option to Paypal.You asked and we listened! Following the launch of the new site we noticed an increase in cancelled orders and had several customers contact us to tell us PayPal had tried to force them to sign up in order to place their order.

We understand that not everyone wants to share their details with PayPal and create an account. Unfortunately this is a security measure from PayPal that occasionally happens and is out of our hands.

To avoid this, you’ll be pleased to know that we have added a new secure payment gateway to the site that allows you to use all major credit and debit cards without signing up or using PayPal. Simply select the Credit Card (Stripe) option at the checkout.

We also accept PayPal and all major debit and credit cards. We are geared to take CARD PAYMENTS, without customers necessarily going through a PayPal account. If you click on the PayPal checkout button, you are then taken to the payment page, where you have two options – either login to your PayPal account OR use the DEBIT and CREDIT card options, available for paying without a PayPal account.

We are also DIGICERT secure!
