Unless specifically stated that a rain check is not available, if we have sold out of, or are temporarily out of stock of, any item offered during an offer or promotion period (“Offer Period”), then we will offer each person who requests supply of that item during the Offer Period, a Rain check, so that the person may purchase, from us, at a later date, the product at the Offer Price, once the product is back in stock.

(2) Payments must be made via the PayPal secure payment gateway facilities accessible via the website and will be subject to any terms and conditions of these providers or by authorising us to charge your credit card account for the total price of the products ordered and the applicable delivery fees at the time the products are dispatched.

You will be liable for all debt collection costs where you fail to make payment for any order when payment is due.
