The prices shown on our website include any VAT (or similar sales tax) at the prevailing rate for which we are responsible as the seller. The amount you pay will be the price indicated plus any delivery charges.

If you are unsure about whether these charges might apply to your order, you should contact your local tax or customs authorities.

The actual price charged to overseas customers will be subject to the exchange rate applied by the customer's credit or debit card company. Customers outside the United Kingdom will also be liable for any import duty, quotas, permits, product restrictions and other local requirements. You are advised to check latest applicable local requirements before placing an order.

Click here for more information on PayPal payments.

Can I pay for my order using my Gift Card?

Yes you can pay with Sterling Gift Cards online. Please select the Gift Card option at the checkout and enter the 16-digit card number.

The full balance will be taken off the card before any other payment method will be used. You can use up to 5 Gift Cards per transaction.

Please ensure to retain your Gift Card after placing your order, in case any items are sent back to us for a refund, as the refund will be processed on to the Gift Card before any other payment method.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept Gift Cards in other currencies on our UK site at present.

 

Can I cancel my order or an item from my order?

We may be able to cancel your order or an item from your order but we can only do this by telephone.

You need to call us as soon as possible on 0344 984 0260 after you have placed your order otherwise it may be too late.
Please note - we are unable to cancel your order by email.

If it is too late for us to cancel your order, return your order using the Freepost returns label enclosed with your parcel.  Simply log into  your account and follow the returns process there. Once we have received the goods back, we will process a refund for you.

Can I add an item to my order after I have placed my order?

Unfortunately not, you will need to place a separate order for anything else that you want to buy.

Why has my card been declined?

All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not for any reason, authorise payment then you will be notified of this immediately at the checkout. A common reason for orders declining is due to the billin address details being entered incorrectly. Please ensure that in the 'billing address' section, the address to whcih your bank statements are sent is entered here.  For full details of why the payment was declined, please contact your card issuer.

Why have you cancelled my order?

I have a query relating to overseas orders

You can only order from countries to which we deliver.  Click here to see the countries that we deliver to.

All charges are made for your order in Pounds Sterling. Your card provider will apply the exchange rate when your card is charged.

You can only claim back VAT on Internet purchases if your items are for business purposes.

Please click here to contact our Customer Care Team if you have any further questions

My order did not go through but I think you have charged me

When you enter your card details to pay for your order, your bank automatically deducts the money from your available balance although it is not actually taken from your account until we despatch your order.

If we do not despatch your order, we do not charge you and the money is automatically put back onto your available balance by your bank.

This usually takes around 3 working days but the exact timeframe  does depend on your card issuer and your bank.

If this timeframe has elapsed, or you are a PayPal customer and the money still has not been released, please contact our Customer Care team by clicking here.

Can I find out if you will be getting replacement stock on items that have sold out?

Some of the items on our website do sell out quickly and unfortunately we are unable to tell you if we will be getting more of a particular item.

However, we regularly update our site so it's worthwhile checking again.

I have received my order but one of the items is missing, what do I do?

Please click here to contact our Customer Care team who will investigate this matter with our warehouse

You confirmed my order but I have now received an email saying one of the items is out of stock. Why is this?

Unfortunately, although our systems showed available stock when you placed your order, when our warehouse went to pick the item they found that there was no stock available.

Although this does not happen often, when it does we have to cancel the item from the order and obviously we do not charge you for the item. Therefore this item will not be sent out to you once it is back in stock.

 

I have received an incorrect item in my order, what do I do?

We aim to get your order right every time but we do occasionally make mistakes.

If we send you the wrong item and you live in the UK, you can return it to us free of charge.

If you would like to replace the item you would then need to make a replacement order. Simply send us the details of the original order, incorrect item and the replacement order number and we will be happy to refund the delivery charge for you."

If you are an International customer including the Republic of Ireland you will need to pay for your return. If you let our Customer Care team know how much you paid, provide a receipt and they will reimburse you. Click here to contact  our Customer Care team.

Please ensure that you keep your proof of postage when you return this item along with any receipts so that we can reimburse you the correct amount on receipt of the goods.

Just click here to log in to your account, follow the links for requesting a return and select the item that you should have received as the item you are returning.

My items are for business purposes, how do I get a VAT receipt?

Please click here to contact our Customer Care Team if you purchased your item online.

I am an International customer and I am having problems placing my order, can you advise?

Please ensure that the security code (CV2) you are entering in the card details section is the one on the back of your card.

Your bank may have given you a different code to use when placing an order online, but the system will only accept the last three digits of the code on the signature strip on the back of your card.

What is “Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode?

Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode follow the same principles as Chip and Pin, by helping to protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop via the Internet.

If your bank or card issuer is already a part of this scheme, then you might have already noticed the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode page appear when you last made a purchase with a participating retailer on the Internet.

If your bank is yet to introduce this security measure then the following information will explain how it works and the added protection benefits of registering.


ONLINE PROTECTION BENEFITS
•        Shop online with added security and peace of mind.
•        Your personal password is linked to your card only, and not to your computer.
•        This security scheme will help to prevent unauthorised purchases.


HOW IT WORKS
When you reach the checkout process at Burton.co.uk (or any participating retailer) you will have the opportunity to register for either Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. Simply sign-up for the service following the online instructions that are linked directly to your card issuer, set up your new personal password once your card issuer has confirmed your identity, and continue shopping.

This is a one-off registration process, so you will be able to use the same password for all future purchases you make with participating retailers.

Alternatively you can contact your bank directly to register, or visit Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode for more information.

What is WEEE Compliance?

UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (SI 2006 No. 3289)

So that you can get your old electrical products recycled, Arcadia have contributed toward the development of recycling collection points (known as ‘Designated Collection Facilities) throughout the UK through our membership of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS).

UK households dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste every year. This is the equivalent of 150,000 double decker buses and would be enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium 6 times over. Much of the UK's electronic waste ends up in landfill sites, where toxins put communities at risk.

To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol.

Not all council sites are suitable to collect all types of waste electrical goods. To find out your nearest participating site and for advice on all aspects of recycling at home, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk

Please remember to have your postcode to hand.
