Once you have browsed the web site and located the item you wish to purchase, you simply click the button to add to cart. You can then continue to browse the site and can add further items by pressing the 'add to cart' button on each item you wish to purchase. By adding to the cart you are placing items in your cyber trolley. Your cart/trolley will be shown at the top right of our web site at all times. Just as being in the supermarket once you are ready, you can proceed to checkout. Simply click on the view cart button in the cart/trolley text at the top right of the website and select the checkout option.
Once at the checkout you will be able to review the items you have selected. You can amend your items by editing quantities, deleting and you will also be able to go back to the product pages to add to your order. Once you are happy with your order you will be asked to select your payment option. All of our payments are handled by PAYPAL. PAYPAL offers you the peace of mind of a well-known trusted, safe and secure payment process provider. If you have a PAYPAL account you simply sign in with your email and password as normal and confirm payment. If you are not a PAYPAL customer the process is still very simple. You will be able to pay with your credit/debit card still using the PAYPAL secure server. You also have the option to sign up for a PAYPAL account but this is not essential.
On placing your order you will immediately receive a receipt for your payment. Once pawpetsupplies has processed your order, you will receive a further email to confirm that your item has been selected and dispatched ready for collection by the courier. It is at this point that your order is confirmed.
Delivery charges are worked out on an item-by-item basis to ensure you benefit from the best possible delivery price. The delivery cost is based on weight not the number of items. This way, you the customer pay the minimum delivery cost. For instance, if you were to order three items, you would not be charged a standard delivery for each of them, you would only pay for the weight of the complete package.
An exception to this is with some larger items such as many pet housing products. These tend to be heavier products and to bring the cost down for you the customer, we offer FREE NEXT DAY delivery. These items will be clearly marked on the product pages if free delivery is offered. No options of delivery or delivery charges will be added for these products at the checkout.
All orders OVER £5 will be shipped as a minimum of signed recorded delivery. This service is fully insured which means no risk to you. If the item does not arrive, this will be tracked and a replacement sent out.
Orders BELOW £5 can be shipped as non recorded delivery. The Non Recorded Post option is only available for orders with a product total cost of less than £5, because Non Recorded post cannot be tracked.
