Our payment provider will process your payment on our behalf.
The supply of goods from the Online Shop is subject to availability. Whilst we will try to inform you if any goods are unavailable before you place an order, we cannot always do this. If this happens, you will be informed by email and you will either not be charged or be refunded for any unfulfilled items.

We accept all major credit and debit cards (except Electron). Comic Relief cannot accept payment by cash, cheque or postal order for orders placed on the Online Shop.
We regret that we are unable to deliver outside of the UK, as the high cost of delivery beyond the UK currently makes such a service uneconomic.

Delivery will be either through Royal Mail, Whistl or courier, dependent on the order weight and value. All courier deliveries will require a signature at receipt.

This charge will be calculated at the checkout stage of your order, and includes VAT at the current rate.

4. the date of your order and date the order was delivered;
5. a description of the goods being cancelled;

Your refund will include the proportion of the original postage and packing we charged you which relates to the value of the goods you are returning as a percentage of your total order. We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you expressly request otherwise in your cancellation note. You are responsible for the costs of returning the goods and this cannot be refunded.
If you wish to cancel before you have received the goods, please contact us immediately with your name, delivery address and order number (found in your confirmation email).

Please indicate your preference to either receive a replacement item or a refund.
