We've worked very closely with our developers to ensure that purchasing goods is as straight forward and intuitive as possible. To this end, we have produced this simple guide explaining how to add products to your Basket and Checkout successfully. If you would prefer to speak to an advisor for help, please telephone 01255-830-229 during office hours.
Adding Products to My Basket
A) Before you can add a product to your Basket there are a couple of things to consider. Firstly, some of our products may have variants. Product variants are really just product features, such as Colour or Size, which typically would have mulltiple corresponding options, such as Black and White or Small, Medium and Large. Each product can have a maximum of 2 variants assigned with an unlimited number of options.
In the event the product you wish to purchase has variants, you will have to select the option/s you want your purchase to have, before it can be added to your basket.
Some variants are purely cosmetic while others can reduce or increase the price of goods.
B) Next, using the 'Qty' field, type the quantity of items you would like to purchase.
Look out for the 'Sold Per..' indicator for products sold in bulk or in lengths.
C) Select the 'Add to Basket' button.
Some products are not suitable for shipping either because of their size, fragility or because they contain hazardous chemicals that makes them unsuitable for shipping. Products that are only available to 'Collect in Store' are clearly identified on relevant product listings and will not include a 'Qty' field or an 'Add to Basket' button.
D) Selecting the 'Add to Basket' button will automatically transfer you to the 'My Basket' page.
Your virtual Shopping Basket status is located at the top of our website. When you select the 'Add to Basket' button your Shopping Basket status is updated to display the correct number of items and associated product costs.
