We will provide estimations about when products are expected back in stock, but this information will only be based on the details received from the supplier at the time and can be affected by logistical delays throughout the supply chain.

We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures 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 a 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 Products, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
8.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
