  • Why do I need to have an Account?

    If you are a new customer and haven't placed an order with us yet, you do not need to register or open an account with us first. You will create an account at the time that you place your first order. However, registering with us will speed up your order during the order checkout.

    We ask for a small amount of information such as your name and address and we then store the information so that the next time you return to make a purchase, we can speed up the time it takes, as we will already have your details. We will also need information as to how you intend to pay for your order.

    Any credit card details provided to us will be encrypted to maintain the privacy of your details using high level SSL encryption technology, which is the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions. We will also ask you to create a unique password to further protect your details. You will then need to key in your password to place subsequent orders or check the current status of an order

We also require your phone or fax number. Your phone number is required for some of the shipping options. We will not call you and your phone number will not be shared with any third party.

    For each order we will also need to know how you intend paying. If you intend to normally pay using a credit card then these details can be retained within your Account so that you do not need to key them in for each purchase. You can however use any of the payment methods listed on our site and there are no limitations to the number of times you can change the payment method.
