Shopping Information

There are different methods.

ONLINE - use our secure site to pay with credit/debit card. We also accept PayPal. 

BY PHONE - from 7am until 10pm which includes evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays. There is a Freephone number for your UK callers. You will normally speak to a person not an exchange. If we are unable to answer the phone and you wish to leave a message we will respond as soon as possible.

FAX or POST - You can print off an order form to either fax to us or send by post.

EMAIL - You can email us with you name and order details and we will telephone you back.

For the purchase of products we accept most credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo, Electron, American Express. Occasionally if suppying outside of the UK it may not be possible to accept local debit or Electron cards. We also accept Pay Pal. 

You can also pay by cheque, money order or postal order although full title to the goods do not pass to the purchaser until such cheques have been cleared.

We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until just before they are shipped. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, post. or via our secure online ordering system.


Shipping and Handling

 

Subject to satisfactory payment clearance and stock availability, orders received by 1pm on a working day will normally be dispatched that same day (Monday to Friday only).

Orders placed after 1pm will not be dispatched until the following day.

Orders placed on a Friday after 1pm will not be dispatched until the next Monday. Deliveries can take extra time to remote parts of the UK mainland and to Northern Ireland.

This is for UK mainland delivery only. For deliveries outside of UK mainland, delivery times can vary. Delivery times cannot be guaranteed and does not form part of our contract with you.

For your security, our payment clearance system has a number of built in precautions against fraudulent use of stolen or 'borrowed' cards.

You can help us to clear payment quickly by:

  • Having delivery to the cardholder's billing address.

  • Providing the landline telephone number for that address (in addition to any mobile number you may wish to provide). 

                            •  

  • If delivery is not to the cardholder's billing address, we will carry out additional security checks before dispatch - this may delay your delivery.  


Please note that we are unable to accept payment by combining two cards to make one purchase.

Unlike many sellers who wait for your payment to arrive before arranging for stock from their distributor, we have our own warehouse with available stock ready to be dispatched. This means that we could dispatch your item the same day if ordered by 1pm or within 24 working hours of receiving your payment if ordered after 1pm.

All products purchased at Sad Shop are delivered within the UK via Parcel force or by Royal Mail, 1st Class Reordered Delivery.

Items will require a signature upon arrival. If you are unavailable to sign for your order when delivered the package can be left in a safe place if prior notice is given.

This is normally indicated on our web site before you accept the offer to purchase the goods. Please note that in the event of changing the delivery address after the goods have been sent out will incur an additional re-direction charge.

Some items in our catalogue/website will be sold including carriage. These will be clearly shown. 

For more than one item there will normally be an additional standard charge unless we are able to pack a smaller item inside the package of a larger one and then only one shipping charge will apply.
