2. Ordering Process
We can only accept orders for delivery within the UK and Channel Islands.
Click the Add to Basket button alongside any item to place that item in your shopping basket. When you are ready to complete and pay for your order click the Checkout button top right.
You will then be required to enter your name and address and contact details - the address given must be the address your payment card is registered to. You can specify an alternative delivery address here - for example if you want to send an item as a gift to someone else or to be sent to your work address. Please note we will not mark parcels "leave on doorstep / leave in bin" or similar instructions, due to risk of theft.
After choosing your delivery method, select your payment card type and then you will go to a secure payment page where you enter your card details.
The 'confirmation' stage sets out the final details of your order and you will receive an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered.
Once your order has been checked, screened and verified it is classed as accepted and you will receive a confirmation of dispatch email.
Astral Aspects reserves the right, without prior notification, to accept or decline any order or limit the order quantity for any reason.
For credit card payments, such payment is subject to the approval of the financial institution issuing the credit card and we shall not be liable in any way if such financial institution refuses to accept or honour the credit card for any reason. We may require, at our option, that any order placed over certain amounts receive our pre-approval. We also may require additional verification or information before accepting any order.
We accept the following payment cards: MasterCard, MasterCard World Signia, MasterCard New World, Solo, UK Maestro, Visa, Visa Signature (US Issued), Visa Debit, Visa Delta, Visa Electron.
Depending on the card you have chosen to use in completing your purchase with us, you may be asked by your card issuer for further authentication. If this is the case, once you have entered your card details on our secure site and clicked the 'Process Payment' button, the next screen will take you to your own card issuer's secure website for a one-step authentication. We do not see and have no way of seeing your card issuer's authentication. Please see Payment Security & 3D Secure for more information.
Your payment card will be debited when your order is processed so that the items can be reserved for you.
We are not VAT registered, therefore prices shown do not include VAT, nor is VAT added at the checkout.
