Q; I am unable to complete my purchase when paying by card?

A; When making a purchase over £25 using a Credit or Debit card you may be asked to verify this purchase through your bank. This is due to the new fraud rules affecting banks, you need to ensure your contact details are up to date with your bank as this verification may be processed via the phone.
