The price of the Products will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error. Please be aware that these prices include VAT and delivery costs unless expressly stated otherwise.
Due to the large number of Products on our site it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of the rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have accepted payment and/or sent you an order acceptance, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
