Description of products

Each product is sold subject to its product description and or photograph. We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions, photographs and prices of products appearing on our web site are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto our web site. Although we aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, the information including product prices appearing on this web site at a particular time may not always reflect the position at the exact moment you place an order.

Product Orders

Prices and availability of all products and services listed on the site are subject to change without notice. The listing, description of, or reference to, a product or service on the Site does not imply that the product or service is presently available or that we endorse that product or service. In the event a product or service is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, error in pricing information received from a supplier, or any other reason, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any order placed for such product or service at the incorrect price, even if the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall promptly issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price paid.

Order Acceptance

A receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or for no reason at all. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, with prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you have ordered of any product or service.

Shipping & Delivery

The shipping times quoted are estimates and are not guaranteed. While very effort is made to ensure we offer a quick and hassle free delivery service certain factors are outside of our control. We do however keep you fully informed of expected delays or dispatch / delivery problems as they happen so that alternate arrangements may be put in place. Any additional charges levied on Belleekshop.com for mistakes or delivery errors due to incorrect delivery information or parcels being returned due to no one being available to sign for a delivery or for reasons not caused by a mistake by an agent of belleekshop.com will be the responsibility of the sender. Your use of our web site authorizes us to recover all costs from the sender for these additional charges. We use the irish postal system for deliveries and they in turn use various couriers internationally to fulfill international delivery. If there is no one generally at home during the day to accept delivery we urge you to consider using a different address such as a work address as delivery is only attempted on one occasion before being left in a local depot for collection for a few days. Courier companies can levy surcharges once a parcel has been dispatched to have an address changed in the system for delivery. A a rule of thumb our standard deliveries are facilitated through the postal service so collection from a local sorting office may be necessary in the event that no one is home to accept delivery during day time hours. For express deliveries we use various courier companies depending on the location for delivery.
