What if I need to send something back for exchange or refund?
It's not a problem, if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase it can be exchanged or the cost of the item(s) refunded. (Please note refunds are made back to the original card the transaction was made with). We will replace faulty goods with an identical replacement item or refund your money if the item is no longer available.
All purchases are covered by a 14 day exchange or refund guarantee.
