We do not offer phone support and all support enquires related to technical or sales must be made through our Help Desk. Our support staff may on occasion need to contact a customer by phone and we are aware that customers often keep this number or find our internal numbers from other sources however it must be understood that we do not answer calls and as stated all enquiries must be through our Help Desk. We do not advertise a phone number and no numbers are listed on our website or in our emails. Please understand that the reason behind this allows us to provide a far superior support service through our Help Desk which is staffed by qualified and experienced staff. Our Help Desk also allows files such as screengrabs to be shared which allows for issues to be dealt with far quicker than by phone. We removed phone support in 2015 after consultation with our customers. In 2020 we sent an email to 12,000 registered customers asking their opinion on whether they preferred phone of help desk support and the overwhelming answer was 83% of customers who replied prefered support through our Help Desk. Our Help Desk allows tickets to be created by email , contact form , social media posts from Twitter and Facebook as well as live chat.

Reward Coins can only be earned by customers who have created an account and place orders from within their account. Orders placed from GUEST ACCOUNTS are not eligible for Reward Points. If an order is placed by a customer with an account who has not logged in then they will not earn points on the purchase and this cannot be changed later. If a customer who has placed an order as a GUEST then later opens an account any order placed as a GUEST is not eligible for Reward Coins and therefore cannot be added later. If Reqard Coins are not awared when an order is placed we cannot add points later. Management decisions are final and reward coins do not have a cash value and can be removed at any stage without notice.

Orders can be cancelled from within your account and depending on the order status you can cancel an order simply by selecting the cancel order option.

You can view order stages by clicking on the link on the footer of our website. If we ship an order and it is refused at point of delivery this can be an issue with good in transit insurance and we ask customers to accept delivery and then create an rma. If the goods order was cancelled before the dispatch date we are responsible for the cost of return of cost of collection if however the cancellation was after the dispatch then the cost lies with the customer to return the order. We reserve the right to refuse any returned order which does not have a valid RMA number. We always recommend setting up an account when placing an order as this offers easy cancellation options for orders based on the order stage amd avoids having to send support tickets or emails and waiting for a response.
