Product and Services Information

All prices are quoted in EURO (€) and are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated. Pre-payment in full must be received by bank transfer before the applicable service is granted.

The receipt of an email order confirmation from us indicating that a transaction has been authorised is simply a recognition that we have received the consumer’s requested order. Due to the technical complexities associated with trading online, we currently settle all transactions immediately after the customer’s address has been verified by their issuing bank.

When the order has been processed the customer is then billed accordingly.

Payment and VAT

We accept payment via Trust Payments and all payment methods they support and bank transfer.
