How to pay

Visa and MasterCard debit or credit payment cards accepted. Sorry no AMEX. You will need to enter or set up your secure password if you're a UK customer buying online – this protects you if your card is stolen and is a good idea. See end of this page for information about secure online payments using Sage Pay.

You can also place and pay for your order by phone if you are a UK customer. Orders are not placed until payment is successfully taken - anti-fraud checks are then performed before the order is despatched.

Non-uk customers or tax exempt e.g. Channel Islands for 'Tax Free Shopping'

  • We have customers all over the world. If your destination country is not listed in the delivery cost drop down list on the shopping bag page, please let us know. Add items you wish to purchase into the shopping bag and from there you can calculate the delivery cost based on weight by selecting your country from the list.
  • Tax Free Shopping: Displayed prices for products include UK VAT (sales tax) and exclude delivery costs. VAT is not charged to non-EU countries and VAT-exempt places like the Channel Islands - to remove the VAT the delivery destination must be a non-EU country or 'Jersey' for example, not 'United Kingdom'. Local import charges may apply to non-EU countries.
  • All prices are charged in UK sterling at checkout. International customers may be charged a fee by their bank for a sterling purchase and/or use a different currency conversion rate to our approximation available by selecting the most familiar currency in the top right of the page.
  • International orders are limited to 2kg of products (several heavy belts/buckles or over a dozen small ones) so if you are having problems checking out, try removing one or two from your shopping bag.
