If you would like to have the order shipped to you, please make sure that you choose the courier option at checkout.

Please note that we don’t routinely refund payments and we don’t refund any payments until the money has cleared in our account. This means that refunding can be a lengthy process so please check your shopping cart carefully before paying. Due to the nature of our products we are unable to accept returns and once an order has been shipped we cannot refund shipping.
If you have placed an order and discover that you would like to add to the shipment, please send us an email so that we can send you an invoice for the addition without duplicating the shipping fee.
