Note that when paying by cheque, goods can only be dispatched once the cheque has been cleared. Please allow 14 days. Please do not send payment by bank notes or coins. When paying by debit or credit card, you are authorising us to debit your card with the total cost of your purchase, including VAT at the prevailing rate and delivery if appropriate.

Goods are supplied to availability; we offer no compensation for any item we cannot supply. A full refund will be given for any item paid in advance which we cannot ultimately supply. Your shopping basket displays the goods you have purchased and an indication of the delivery timescale. We will notify you if your goods are not able to be dispatched within this timescale. Shipping times may vary. Any delivery times quoted are estimates, based on availability and normal delivery time in working days.

PRICING

All Prices shown are in GBP (pounds sterling) and include VAT currently at 20%. All goods are sold subject to availability. Both price and availability information is subject to change without notice, hence any subsequent purchases of the same product cannot be guaranteed at the same price. Where goods are temporarily out of stock we will endeavour to contact you so that you may choose between a refund on the item, having it shipped when it is back in stock or selecting an alternative product. Whilst we take the utmost care to ensure the product descriptions, pictures, information and prices are accurate we do not accept liability for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items displayed on our site may be mispriced. No contract exists between you and Woods The Stationers Limited until we accept the order by taking payment for the goods. We maintain the right to decline orders without giving an explanation. Colours may vary slightly from those shown on the website due to the limitations of Internet technology. We regularly monitor our website and aim to constantly provide accurate product information and correct pricing on all items offered. We reserve the right to alter pricing at any time and if an item is offered in error we will contact you with the correct price and ask whether you wish to proceed with your order.

COOLING OFF AND CANCELLATION

We wish you to be satisfied every time you shop with us. Our "no quibbles" guarantee means that if for any reason you are unhappy with the goods purchased, you may cancel your order and return the goods to us within 7 working days from receipt of the goods. You will receive a refund within 30 days of cancellation. It is your responsibility to take care of the goods before returning them, and they must be returned in a state where they can be resold. Unless the goods are defective, damaged or not as specified on your order acknowledgement, you are responsible for the cost of returning goods to us. We recommend that you use Recorded Delivery, as proof of shipping is not proof of receipt. If however the goods are faulty then the postage costs will be refunded to you.
