1. How do I place an order?
A. Select the item
Either use the search function to find a product or browse the shop. When you find a product you want, click on the 'add to basket' link to add it straight to your basket or click on the title to see more details, including description, price and sizes available, and then add it to the basket.
With the t-shirts, you can choose the gender and size you require by adding a note in the 'Add special instruction to seller' box on the Review Your Payment page at PayPal.
B. Check the basket
Once you have selected your item(s), select 'basket' from the left-hand drop-down menu to see a list of the products you have selected. To change the quantity, amend the number and click on 'update total'. The basket will automatically update. To delete an item simply click 'remove' under the item description.
C. Confirm your delivery address
Once you are happy with your order, click on 'go to checkout' to enter your delivery address. Click on 'continue to order summary' where you can check the items and delivery details. If you need to change the delivery details, click on 'edit delivery details'. Otherwise click on 'enter payment details at PayPal' to make the payment. You will then be directed to the PayPal website.
At the PayPal website you can either pay by debit or credit card or else log in to your PayPal account if you have one.
PayPal is a secure online account that stores and safeguards your bank, credit or debit card details, which allows you to pay safely and easily without sharing any of your financial information with the seller. It uses the world's most advanced proprietary fraud prevention systems to create a safe, global, real-time payment service.
E. Order confirmation
Once you have made your payment through PayPal you will be redirected to the order confirmation page, which will give you an order number and confirmation that the order is complete. We recommend that you print a copy of this page for your records. A confirmation email will also be sent to you to confirm that the order is being processed.
Multiple purchases will receive a discount on postage after the order has been placed.
