If you received a confirmation you can rest assured that your payment was successful. However, in some rare cases a security issue may arise with your payment or an ordered item may be discovered to be out of stock. If this occurs we will contact you to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Once your order has been packed and shipped you will receive a second email to confirm dispatch and provide you with tracking information.
If you placed an order, but have not received any confirmation emails from us, please contact us to confirm that we have received your order. Something simple like a typo may have caused the confirmation email to fail or the Internet may just be broken ;). It’s always worth checking, especially if you need the items quickly.
