Q: I accidentally input the wrong address at the point of purchase. Can this be changed?
A: It happens to the best of us! If you contact us immediately after purchase (email if you purchased it over the weekend so we see it first thing Monday morning) we may be able to update the postal address before it makes the post, but we cannot promise so.
Call us on +353(0)53 9158693 and we will certainly do our very best.

Q: I placed an order and received an email saying it failed. Why has the money still been taken?
A: Unfortunately this is outside our control as it down to the way banks work. The money is held in reserve (by the bank) until the order is completed or rejected. If completed, the money leaves, if rejected, the money comes back, and this can take up to 14 working days due to the way the banking system works.
