We will take every care to ensure that product information and pricing are accurate at the time they are entered. Manufactures may update the look and specifications of the product and it may not be possible to update the listing on our website accordingly for some period. We will try to indicate the difference on our listings wherever it is applicable.

You have been provided with a data feed which is refreshed every 5 minutes so that you can have the most up to date stock numbers on your sales channels. You can integrate the data feed to your website or stock control system (the company providing your stock control software can do this for you or you may can hire a developer) or you can manually update your stock levels as required. We recommend integrating the data feed for more accurate stock control.
At times it may be possible that an item will go out of stock, in this case we will refund you for the item. You can then offer your customer an alternative item or a refund.
You can select from 3 shipping methods for your dropship orders: Royal Mail Tracked 24, Royal Mail Tracked 48 or Fedex Next Working Day delivery.

Tracking information will be emailed to the billing email address at the time of dispatch.
Invoice & Documentation:
A copy of the invoice will be emailed to the billing email address for your records but we won’t put an invoice in the customers parcel because you wouldn’t want them to see your wholesale price. You can email your customer an invoice separately.
We will enclose a returns slip in the parcel with your details should the customer wish to contact you for any reason.
Paying for your orders:
After submitting your order you will be emailed an invoice for payment. Our preferred method of payment is BACS however you can also pay by PayPal or Credit/Debit Card.

Please bear in mind that the claims process is managed by the courier and their decision is final. You may find yourself in a situation where the claim is rejected by the courier or still being processed but you will have to compensate your customer.
