Credit Card Chargebacks

If you feel there is a problem with your order you must contact us in writing (letter or email) to resolve the problem. Cancelling the transaction with your credit card company will be considered theft or fraud and your details will be passed to the relevant authority for further investigation. This may result in us making a claim against you and could damage your credit rating.
If a transaction is charged back to you and proof of delivery is available, we reserve the right to either:
A) Re-charge the credit card you used to make the payment for the full amount, plus an additional £30 to cover our administration costs.
B) Issue a claim via the appropriate legal service – This may affect your credit rating and leave CCJ’s against you.
If you request a chargeback after a refund has been issued, you will be liable for a charge of £30 to cover our administration costs and any charges made to us. Credit card protection regulations ensure your account is automatically credited when a chargeback is issued, If a refund has already been made, a further chargeback will be considered theft or fraud and appropriate legal action may be taken against you.
