If the goods are returned to us due to not being able to deliver, we reserve the right to refund payment but retain the full cost of postage we paid. This may be more than the amount you originally paid because we subsidise some of the cost against the order value.

When one item is returned that was ordered within a deal, example buy one get one half price, then the refund will be for the half price item. If both items are returned, then the refund will be as ordered, one at full price and one half price.
