Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order. For a guide on ordering, please view our 'How to order online' here.
You do not need to make any payment with your order. You will receive an invoice from Cats Protection Head Office in due course. All orders are subject to stock availability. Branch price includes VAT at the current rate where applicable.
Orders placed must be for a minimum branch buying price of £50.
When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Cancelling an Order: Cats Protection Shop strives to process your order immediately after Checkout so you can receive your goods as soon as possible. Once you have hit the Purchase button at Checkout we begin to process your order. If you decide after Checkout that you would like to cancel your order please call 01392 824 300 or email email@example.com
