Payment Methods

You can pay for your order with any of the following:

Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, American Express
Cheque or postal order (Must be in GBP, and drawn on a UK bank account).
Bank transfer (GBP only).

You can select your method of payment at the checkout, where full payment instructions will be provided.

Prices and Currency

All prices are displayed in GBP (Great Britain Pounds) and include VAT. For customers outside of the UK, your credit card company will convert this into your local currency automatically. Please contact your credit card company for the actual conversion rate used.

Where orders are shipped outside of the EU, VAT will automatically be deducted at the checkout.


When paying by cheque or cash, it is very important that the Order Number is included with your payment. If you do not do this, it is very difficult to identify which order your payment is for, and your order will probably be delayed.
Your Order Number will be provided at the checkout, and will also be sent to you via email.

Orders from Schools and other Government Organisations

For smaller orders, please fax or post your official purchase order to us. Our fax number is 01202 798181. We prefer payment of invoices by BACS, however a cheque is also acceptable.
If you wish to pay using a purchasing card, please order via this website in the usual way. All orders include a full VAT invoice, and prices displayed on this website include VAT where applicable.

Larger quantities

If you require larger quantities of specific items and the total order value will be over £200, please contact Customer Services by email as lower prices are available for many products.
