3. Our website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. 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 website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.

To verify the validity of your credit or debit card, Computop may complete a card verification process with a 15 pence authorisation. Your credit or debit card will not be charged as part of this validation process but in some cases it may show up as an authorisation on your credit or debit card statement. A payment by credit or debit card will only be charged at or shortly after the time you place your order.
