Shipping Charges on Orders
We try our best to provide instant shipping charges via the website ( visible as soon as shipping address has been filled in ). These charges are for domestic economy shipping via our courier service. There are however times when the actual courier fee is far more than the amount charged by our website. This is normally due to a hefty surcharge by the courier company because they classify the area as an outlaying area. Extremely heavy or large dimension parcels may also cause a large discrepancy between the shipping amount charged by the website and the actual courier charge.
In these or similar cases, we reserve the right to place such an order on hold while notifying the client of the additional charges. The client may then cancel his/her order for a full refund, or make payment on the additional shipping charges, after which his/her order will then promptly be dispatched by us.
Order Cancellation Due To Error

Where your credit card has been charged, we will immediately refund your credit card for the total amount debited.
