Back to Top

Can I pay by debit or credit card?

  • No, we're sorry but, as just a small business, we do not have facilities to be able to take card payments.
  • This is because of the high charges for operating a merchant account.
  • If we were to accept card payments, we would be forced to increase our prices to offset these charges.
  • We believe you would probably prefer our prices to remain as they are!
Back to Top

What is included in your prices?
