How do I return an unwanted order?
If you wish to return any items bought from us and they are returnable (not perishable goods or personalised and are in saleable condition). Distance selling regulations state that anything unwanted needs to be returned to the seller within 14 working days of receipt and then a refund should be given. You are best off calling us on 0114 2683033 or email us to make us aware of the situation. Then you will need to ship the items back to us. The cost of shipping returned items is not refundable - you have to pay for this yourself. As soon as we receive the returned items we shall refund your payment.
How and why should I pay using bitcoin?
We like to keep an eye to the future, and bitcoin is a promising payment system. BitPay means you can pay for your order using bitcoin if you like. It's really space age and new at the moment but it will soon be more commonplace. We like it, and there are loads of others out there who use bitcoin so we thought it would be cool to offer it as a payment method. It's as easy as PayPal, but only if you have access to bitcoins and a bitcoin wallet already. For more information see here .
