We accept most major credit/debit cards. Namely Visa, MasterCard, Delta, Maestro and AMEX.

Your payment card is debited as and when we take authorization for the payment.Payment Card Validation
One of the primary methods of payment card validation is by using the Card Validation Code (CVC) which is made up of the three last numbers of the code contained on the reverse of your credit or debit card. The Card Validation Code is an authentication scheme which gives you added security against the fraudulent use of the card.Pre-Ordering

We will deliver goods in accordance with the delivery option selected by you during the order process. The delivery period stated within which you receive your order is approximate. We try to maintain excellent stock levels but sometimes demand, particularly on new models and items subject to promotional offers, can take us by surprise and products become unavailable. If this is the case we will tell you as soon as possible and keep you updated as to your order status.
Products will be sent to the address given by you in your order. If your delivery address is outside the United Kingdom, you may have to pay import duties and taxes, which is levied once a shipment reaches your country.
