Ordering and Payment

Everything you need to know about placing your order and making a payment.

How do I place an order?

You can browse by clicking on the tabs at the top of each webpage. Or, if you're searching for something specific type the product name into the search tab (at the top left of the webpage) and we'll show you everything related to your search. When you've found what you want, simply click 'add to bag', carry on shopping or go to the checkout to organise payment and delivery.

Please note we no longer process orders by phone in-store. If you wish to process an order by phone, please contact customer services. Orders are subject to availability.

Why can't I place my order?

We're sorry you're having problems paying for your order.

Please ensure:

  • The billing address matches the address your card is registered to (found on your bank statements).
  • Your card number is entered without any spaces or punctuation.
  • The delivery address matches the country of the website you're on – you can check this by clicking the flag in the top left corner.

If there's no option to make the payment for a particular item, it's likely the product has become unavailable.

If you continue to experience issues placing an order, please contact our customer services team.

Your computer should automatically allow the opening of the secure connection when you place your order. This means all details you supply and any responses are encrypted. You can tell whether a page is secure as a small locked padlock will appear in your browser address bar. If you do receive an email claiming to be from us asking you to confirm any account or credit card details, please contact our customer services team to confirm it's a genuine email.

How do I apply a promo code?

At checkout, simply enter promo code or NUS number and click ‘apply'.

Why is my promo code not working?

We're sorry your discount didn't apply to your order. This could be for one of the following reasons:

  • Only one promotion can be used per order
  • Promotion may only be valid for one transaction
  • Promotion may only be valid when using a specific card e.g KM Card
  • Promotion may exclude certain product e.g sale goods
  • Promotion has expired

We'd suggest checking the terms of the promotion for any exclusions. If, after this, you're still finding the promotion isn't applying, please contact customer service here and we'll be happy to help.

If you continue to experience issues placing an order, please contact our customer services team.
