Orders

2.1 The display of products on our website is an invitation and not an offer to those products to you.

2.2 An offer is made when you place the order for your products. However, we will not have made a contract with you until we accept your offer (see point 2.5 below).

2.3 We take payment from your card, when we process your order and have checked your card details. Products are subject to availability. If we are unable to supply the products, we will inform you of this as soon as possible. A full refund will be given if you have already paid for the products.

It does not take place until that stage, even though we may have debited your card (see 2.3 above). Very occasionally an error may occur resulting in the products described on our website not being the products actually available for sale. If this occurs your order will not be or have been accepted. We may ask you whether you wish to purchase other products we may have available or the products which may have been dispatched to you in error. If so your order will be amended.

We reserve the right to amend prices if there is a change in the rate of VAT. All total prices for goods and services at the checkout represent the total price payable by the customer for those items, regardless of the address for delivery. For delivered to the EU, this price includes VAT (or VAT equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for deliveries outside the EU, where VAT (or VAT equivalent) may not be applicable, customers are not entitled to any discount or refund to account for the differences in tax treatment and will pay the same price for the item as a customer placing an order for delivery to the EU. Other components of the total price at the checkout, including delivery charge, may vary for each customer.

3.2 A delivery charge will be applied at checkout, please view our delivery charges.

3.3 We do our best to make sure that prices are correctly shown but very occasionally an error may occur. If this should happen, we will correct the price and ask you to confirm whether you still wish to purchase the products at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as canceled. We will not accept an order if there is a pricing error.

Alternatively, we are able to arrange for many products to be collected from the Open As Usual store for no later than 14 days after receiving your 'Order Ready for Collection' update email; order details and proof of identity must be produced.

The signature of the person accepting delivery at the delivery address will be proof that delivery has been received by you or the person, to whom the order is addressed. If no one is available to accept the delivery you will receive a card to advise that a delivery has been attempted and that the product(s) have [either been left with a neighbor or returned to the warehouse.

Returning Goods From Outside the EU

When returning goods from outside of the EU, please be sure to clearly declare the goods as a return to the courier / postal service used. This will prevent your return being held by UK customs and allow us to process your return much quicker.
