We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped.

Actual quantity will differ from the ordered quantity and an adjustment will be added to reflect this.
Differences should be within plus or minus 10 percent of the quantity ordered.

We will normally despatch ASAP with the adjustment made.

==================================================

Prices in Euros on this site are published to give an indication of the price in that currency - we will only charge the GBP amount, so the price converted back to EUROS may be different due to currency fluctuations and/or your payment processor applying extra charges (eg. bank charges, credit card exchange rate commission charges).

We only charge in GBP Pounds Sterling - payment received must match the GBP value of your order.

If payment is made by a credit card registered in another currency, the order will be charged in GBP and the card issuer will convert the GBP order amount back to your currency at their published rate & foreign exchange charges.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
