Samples and Sample Shipping
Unfortunately, due to people taking advantage of the automatic reduced rate sample shipping when they are not buying samples, we have had to remove the reduced rate Sample Shipping from the options available at the checkout.
Samples are still available for most items where there are minimum order quantities greater than 2, but full price shipping will need to be paid when purchasing your sample. A later discount will then be available.
If after purchasing a single sample you then go ahead and place an order of 30 or more items, we are happy to discount this main order by half of the standard shipping costs that you will have paid for the sample. This will be a discount of £2.25 against your main order. Please just let us know before placing your order and we will provide you with a unique voucher code to use at the checkout.
Please be aware that the shipping discount will only be available if your sample shipping was for a SINGLE item. Multiple items do not qualify for the sample shipping discount.
We are very sorry that this is a long way around to provide you with half-price shipping for the samples. Unfortunately this has come about as a result of people abusing the easier automatic system that was in place before.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SAMPLES ARE AVAILABLE ON CERTAIN ITEMS WITH PRIOR APPROVAL ONLY.
If you do not have prior permission to order a sample, you will receive an email advising you that our minimum order quantities apply.
If you have any further queries regarding samples, please don't hesitate to contact us.
