Online Shop Terms & Conditions

Delivery is by Royal Mail and is free for all of our books.

We will endeavour to despatch all orders received within 7 days but please note that we are an entirely voluntary organisation and on occasion it may take a little longer. If for any reason your order is required urgently, please email as soon as you have placed it and advise us, quoting the order reference – we will always do our best to help.

Payment Information

Payment is taken through the BHS PayPal Account. But you don't need to have a PayPal account to make an order, you can choose to pay by credit or debit card when you reach the PayPal payment screen in the order process. PayPal is secure and we don't store any of your payment card details on our web server.
