  3. Select and add your order items to the cart as normal
  4. During checkout, select the appropriate payment option:
    1. Credit/Debit Card (£, Euro, US$)

    3. Bank/Wire transfer (£, Euro, US$)” – See below

Online/Immediate Payment Options

Credit/Debit Card

Paying in your own currency (if available) will help reduce the charges normally associated with foreign currency transactions.

Note: Some banks and card issuers will apply fees/charges for “Cross-border” / “International” transactions so please check with your bank/card-issuer before placing an order if you have any qustions about what charges may be applied.


We are able to accept all our displayed currencies as payments using Paypal via the standard checkout process (not Paypal Express).

Offline/Other Payment Options

All other payment options or currencies must be paid in Pounds Sterling (GBP) because of the problems associated with tracking currency exchange rates and other administrative bookkeeping.

To be clear these payment methods all require payment to be made in Pounds Sterling (GBP)

Note: Because of the way International payment clearing works, some International transactions will be accepted but flagged for manual verification. This means that the payment is held until the payment details can be checked, sometimes requiring direct contact with the customer to verify identity.

Whilst this can be an inconvenience, the issue of fraud is one that affects both customers and businesses so these measures are designed to protect both parties as much as humanly possible. Your patience, in instances like this, is appreciated.
