Charges and options
Standard UK delivery is FREE on all orders over £75. We charge £3.00 for standard UK delivery on orders under £75.
Your order will be despatched the day we receive your order (before 5pm), Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays). In the unlikely event that we are out of stock, we will contact you within 24 hours. Once we deem payment cleared, the order will be despatched in accordance with the delivery service selected.
If you are importing any of our goods you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for compliance with importing laws and requirements of the country to which the goods are shipped and this is entirely at your own expense and risk.
In addition to the purchase price of the goods you accept full responsibility for any and all handling charges, shipping cost, insurance, import duties, fees, liabilities and tax/duty costs, which may arise or apply to your order and transportation. Furthermore, we will provide a quote on postage when the amount charged is insufficient to cover costs.
Products delivered to some destinations, mainly outside the EU, may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges, which are imposed by local legislation. The recipient of the products is responsible for all customs formalities for their export and import, and will be required to pay any additional charges, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges. The recipient of the goods, not the person who's ordered them, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges.
If you're ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please make sure they're aware they'll be responsible for these additional charges. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, so we’re unable to offer any assistance on these processes. We'd advise that you check the import charges applicable in any country before ordering products to be delivered there.
Payment and VAT
Payment for products and delivery services is to be made in pounds Sterling. All prices shown on the website for both products and delivery services are inclusive of any applicable UK VAT.
Where you've requested delivery to an EU address, the price paid for the product and the delivery service will usually include UK VAT, which will be shown on your VAT receipt issued to you by Plushpaws Ltd.
Where you're not a UK resident and you've ordered products for delivery by Plushpaws Ltd to a non-EU address, both the products and the delivery service will normally be zero-rated, with no UK VAT chargeable on either.
