For offline orders we can also accept American Express, cheque and bank transfer please contact our customer services team on 0844 887 8888 to arrange.
What is my CV2 number?
Your CV2 number is the last 3 digits on your signature strip on the reverse side of your payment card. This number helps to prevent fraud.
What is an authorisation?
An authorisation is the process whereby the bank authorises electronic debit and credit card transactions. When an order is placed, we are obliged to verify the credit/debit card details provided by the customer to help prevent card fraud. We will contact the card issuer electronically to verify that your billing address and card details are correct and that sufficient funds are available for the transaction.
The card issuing bank will take the transaction balance from your credit limit or bank balance and hold the money in a holding account until either we settle the transaction or the hold falls off. When your order is despatched from our premises and the settlement is completed, the funds are transferred from your account to us. If we are not taking immediate payment, as in the case of backorders and pre-orders, the hold will remain until it falls off and the funds are transferred back onto your card. This may take between 3-5 working days, depending on the issuing bank.
I’ve received an email to say my credit card details or address is incorrect. What should I do?
If during authorisation, the bank cannot verify that the address details match those of the credit/debit card, we will contact you by email or letter to request you contact us to check the details. It may be that there is an incorrect digit in the card details provided or it may be that the billing address has been entered incorrectly. If you have received an email/letter please contact our customer services team on 0844 887 8888 to confirm your details.
I’ve received an email to say my card has declined what should I do?
Please call our customer services team on 0844 887 8888 to verify your card and address details. It may simply be that a digit is incorrect or the billing address has been entered incorrectly. Please do not place a new order as you will end up with a second duplicate order. Please note that if you update your details in your online account you will also need to contact us to update your details for your declined order, as online updates do not affect current orders. We do not have access to your online details and therefore you will need to contact us if your address or card details have changed.
I have a new credit card, how can I update my backorders?
Please call our customer services team on 0844 887 8888 with your new details and we will be able to update your backorders with the new details.

Can you confirm that the price confirmed when I ordered will be the price I pay?
Try as we might, there may be occasions when a product will be mispriced on our website. Please be assured that we verify prices as part of our despatch procedure. If a product's correct price is lower than advertised on our site you will be charged the lower price. If a product's correct price is higher than advertised on our site, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. In the case of pre-orders you will be charged the RRP at the time of release and not at the time of ordering.
