Making A Purchase
Making a purchase couldn't be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping basket. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
We accept credit card payments. If you are shopping from outside of the UK your credit card company will convert the transaction into your own currency.
We accept Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Solo, Maestro and Visa Electron. Backordered items will be charged at the time of placing the order and will be shipped as soon as they become available. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, mail or over the Internet.
When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Cancelling an Order:
Cats Protection strives to process your order immediately after Checkout so you can receive your goods as soon as possible. Once you have hit the Purchase button at Checkout we begin to process your order. If you decide after Checkout that you would like to cancel your order please call 0333 2405 892 or email email@example.com. If you call or email within 24 hours your credit card will be credited for the entire purchase price and the cost of standard postage as long as you refuse delivery and "Return to Sender" when the order arrives. If you do not call within 24 hours to cancel, unfortunately we will not be able to refund your postage charges.
