If for any reason we are unable to supply the item you have ordered, we will contact you. Please be aware that there may be slight differences to the products pictured. The differences can happen when the supplier of a product improves the original product without updating advertising or pricing. These are minute differences and will be of equal or better quality than what has been advertised.

Please note not all stock is carried at our store at all times but orders are welcome. Please allow 2-3 working days for this service. No responsibility is taken for stock unavailability due to supplier issues.

Laybuy -

Laybuy offers online shoppers a simple interest free payment plan that lets you secure your purchase today and pay for it in 6 equal payments, once a week for 6 weeks.

Laybuy performs a credit check to obtain a credit score on all new users upon registration. Once your credit score has been confirmed and your account has been verified, Laybuy assigns your Laybuy limit and you can begin shopping immediately.

The first payment equal to one sixth of the purchase price occurs once your order is completed. The remaining 5 payments are processed each week on the day of the original purchase from your nominated card. No further action is required and all account information including a payment schedule can be viewed, at any time, through your Laybuy account.

Once you select Pay by Laybuy at checkout and complete your purchase, the Merchant ships any products directly to you at the delivery address you have requested. If your purchase is a ticket for a service, this will be emailed to you.
