Payment

Spike Island uses PayPal to process payments. This secure merchant is independent and will never disclose your payment details to us. 

Your contract with us

After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from PayPal acknowledging your payment.  Please note this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email stating that the payment has been processed and that your Products have been dispatched (‘Dispatch Confirmation’). The contract between us (‘Contract’) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. 

The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

Product information

Spike Island has made every endeavour to ensure photographs, dimensions and Product descriptions represent our Products as accurately as possible. In some instances there may be a slight variation in appearance and colours of the actual Products due to the production process, the lighting in which they were photographed or your computer's monitor settings.

Spike Island aims to dispatch all orders within 5 working days from when you place your order. We use Royal Mail’s first class service for orders of Books and Gifts, and Parcelforce for orders of Editions.
