Terms and Conditions
The necessary small print - but we like to keep it as simple as possible, and it couldn't be easier ordering from us.
Do be aware that all items are sold in accordance with these terms and conditions, and when you make your payment you are accepting them.
This applies to items purchased directly from this site only. This does not affect your statutory rights.
General Terms and Conditions
TITLE OF GOODS
We retain ownership of all goods at all times until cleared payment is received at our bank. If your payment is refunded for any reason we immediately regain title to the goods. Goods must be returned to us before refunds can be issued. Please read the section on returns below.
NOTE: In the event that your item is not delivered for any reason, once we have negotiated with the carriers and discovered the reason for non-delivery we will offer to send you a replacement, unless you have refused to accept the original delivery. This includes occasions where the carrier has contacted you to indicate that redelivery or collection is required if they could not gain access or obtain a reply for any reason when they called.
Generally, if you have not received your item within the specified delivery window given by the carriers, once we have officially confirmed this with the carriers we will offer you a replacement.
However, in order for you to receive the goods we must have cleared funds from you for the relevant purchase. It is important to understand that if you open a claim via the payment processors without contacting us first or waiting for a resolution to be offered by us, title for the goods is immediately returned to us and as such we will not be able to send you a replacement.
This is because that in the event of a claim PayPal and most other payment processors immediately withhold the funds and therefore we will be unable to send you a replacement as the funds are not considered to have cleared. Your payment will of course be refunded upon completion of the carrier's investigations and, subject to availability, you will be able to reorder in most cases.
Simply add the item to the basket and complete the simple guided step-by-step checkout process to buy. Your details will not be used for marketing purposes and will not be passed on to any third party unless required by law enforcement, or for the process of debt collection.
SECURE PAYMENTS and PRICING
The price you see is the price you pay and unless otherwise stated includes FREE UK postage - there are absolutely NO hidden extras here!
Your credit/debit card details are only used by our payment processors for the purpose of payment and are never seen or retained by us. None of your details are passed on to any other third party for marketing purposes, ever.
We are happy to accept cheques, postal orders and bank transfers too - simply contact us for details. Our contact details are shown at the foot of every page on this website.
Goods can only be delivered to the buyer's home address. Your payment details must match your home address or the payment processors may reject your order.
We aim to dispatch all goods within 24 hours of purchase, not including weekends or bank holidays, but we do get very busy at times so please allow seven working days (not including weekends or bank holidays) following the date of dispatch before enquiring about an undelivered item (21 days for overseas buyers outside the UK). You will be notified immediately when your item has been dispatched.
Do be aware that on occasion deliveries may be delayed for various reasons beyond our control. Therefore delivery times (if stated) are an estimate only and can not be guaranteed.
Multiple item orders will be combined in the same parcel where possible unless you advise otherwise at the time of purchase. If you want items to be sent separately additional postage fees may apply (we will invoice you via PayPal where applicable), and you must contact us prior to purchasing to discuss this as goods will not be dispatched until all due fees have been paid in full.
Generally, if you do not respond to a request for additional postage fees incurred within 24 hours of the time of placing your order then items will be sent in the same parcel without further notice to you.
Do be aware that all orders can only be sent to the address specified on your order, which must be your home address, and this can not be changed after purchase for any reason.
IMPORTANT: TERMS FOR SIM CARDS
Sim cards are offered on the strict understanding that they will be used in accordance with the network's terms and conditions. Sim cards are offered for sale strictly for personal use only and supplied on the basis that they will be topped up in accordance with the networks terms. Sim cards should not be ordered if you do not intend to top up, or for any other purpose.
A maximum of 2 free sim cards per person and/or household per 6 month period is the limit you can order, regardless of network. Orders for more than 2 sim cards as such will be rejected without notice.
We reserve the right to cancel any sim card order without warning or notice. In particular trade sellers should be aware that sim cards are not available for resale.
Network terms apply at all times and are a legal requirement so please do not abuse these conditions and do not order sim cards if you do not intend to use them as stated above.
RETURNS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ.
UK & Ireland buyers can enjoy a 14-day returns policy for most items*. If you are not happy with the goods simply return them unused and we will refund you or exchange them for a different item. Goods MUST be unused and complete, returned in original undamaged packaging, with all accessories
PLEASE CONTACT US IN ALL CASES IF YOU WISH TO RETURN AN ITEM SO WE CAN ISSUE YOU WITH AN RMA (RETURN MERCHANDISE AUTHORISATION) CODE.
You MUST notify us of your intention to return the item within 14 days of purchase and return it within 14 days of receiving your RMA code from us. We reserve the right to refuse or decline returns outside of these time limits.
We regret we can not refund any return P&P costs, or outgoing P&P costs for extra or premium services such as 1st Class, Recorded or Special Delivery, or International postage. This is a necessary additional expense charged by the carriers.
We are unable to accept returns if the item has been used. In accordance with the terms of the Consumer Rights Act 2015, you can inspect the item as you would in a High Street store but the item must be returned unused, with all accessories and in it's original packaging to qualify for a full refund.
If any part of the item is broken, damaged or marked in any way since you received it we can not accept a return. Phones or tablets can be powered on briefly for inspection, but do not remove any screen protector that may be in place and do not install any screen protector that may be in the box.
IMPORTANT: We reserve the right to refuse to accept any items that have been used. If a used item is accepted at our discretion the maximum we can offer is 50% of the original value. This is because we are not allowed by law to resell it as new. The average resale price of a used item in 2017, of the type we sell, was around 38% so we are offering as much as we reasonably can, but you should be aware of this before returning items.
For all items, we can not issue a refund until the item has been returned to us unless we have informed you otherwise in writing, and we reserve the right to take legal action without further notice if you instigate any action which may lead to PayPal or your bank/card issuer or any other payment processor we may use refunding your payment before the item has been returned to us and/or your refund has been approved by us. We also retain title of the goods where any payment is outstanding for any reason.
Postage costs for returning items are the responsibility of the buyer. Damage or breakages for items while in the customer's possession, until they are safely returned to us, is the sole responsibility of the customer.
Note: Claiming a full refund for a used or damaged item is illegal. If an attempt to claim a refund via Paypal or any other method and you are not entitled to a full refund as part of the above terms your right to any refund will be voided and we reserve the right to recover any losses, through legal action if necessary.
For most items, standard ("Economy") outgoing UK postage is included in the price ("Free Shipping") unless otherewise stated on the product page. Upgrades such as 1st Class Tracked, Special Delivery/UPS 1-Day and International shipping fees or any other service we choose to use are fees collected on behalf of the carrier and are therefore non-refundable under any circumstances.
All items are in stock now unless otherwise stated. Please order with confidence!
All items are guaranteed for a minimum of 12 months. Many of our products now include a 2 year limited warranty and where applicable this will be stated on the porduct page. Please refer to the 'Your Guarantee' page on this site or details supplied with your order for full details. For general guidance we follow the terms of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
Generally we will repair your item or replace it with a similar one of equal or greater value, or if those options are unavailable for any reason, refund you for faulty items up to one year from the date of purchase, and where stated for up to two years against manufacturing defects. This applies to the main item listed only (e.g. mobile phone) and does not include accessories or "free" additional items.
We can not provide a refund after the period specified for returns above, unless a repair or replacement item of equivalent or greater value is not available.
Please be aware that the warranty does not cover accidental damage, damage through misuse, excessive use beyond that which the item was designed for, business or industrial use, damage to any glass (including displays, panels, camera lens, sensors etc), cosmetic damage or fair wear and tear.
Your warranty is valid for the original purchaser only and is not transferable.
Please retain your receipt/packing slip safe as proof of purchase. In some cases items may need to be returned to the manufacturer who will require proof of purchase and we can not provide you with a copy.
