What is PayPal and how does it work?

PayPal is a safer, simpler way to send and receive money online. It's free to sign up for a PayPal account. For payments made as a purchase of goods or services, the recipient (seller) will be charged a fee. You can pay with money held in your PayPal account balance or use another payment method such as a credit card, debit card or your bank account. Once you sign up for a PayPal account, you just need to select PayPal as your payment method when you shop online and you will be asked to log in to your account with your email address and password to confirm the payment. PayPal never shares your financial information with sellers or retailers. For more information visit www.paypal.co.uk.

Credit and Debit Card Transactions

We are fully aware of the risks involved with card transactions over the internet so for both parties' safety and peace of mind, we process all card payments using our own PayPal facility. You do not need to be registered with PayPal in order to use this service (see above).

  • If you do not have a PayPal account, simply add as many items as you like to your basket and then follow the link to the checkout and at "Payment Method" select "Go to PayPal". You will then be sent over to a secure online payment form that you can use to make any credit or debit card payment.
  • If you already have a PayPal account, select "Use PayPal account" and you will be sent to the appropriate page to complete the transaction.


How can I buy from you if I don't have a debit or credit card?

  • You may make payment directly to our business account through a bank transfer payment in person or on-line. To do this, complete your shopping and when you reach the checkout select "Bank Transfer" and follow the instructions for making the transfer. If you use this method the items you have selected will then be reserved for 7 days to await your transfer and your purchase will be despatched as soon as the funds clear our account. PLEASE GIVE YOUR POSTCODE AND NAME AS THE REFERENCE, so that we can link your payment with your order.
