Is your website secure?
Our site has an SSL certificate which means it uses the industry standard Secure Socket Layer 256-bit encryption to ensure that all sensitive data passed between the web server and browser remains private and integral. You know when you have entered a secure webpage by the URL (web page address) which changes from http:// to https:// and/or when you see the locked padlock symbol alongside the URL. If you buy online from our website you will be directed during the checkout process to our payment service provider Sage Pay (formerly Protx) — the largest independent payment service provider (PSP) in the UK and Ireland. Sage Pay provides a secure payment gateway (Level 1 PCI DSS), processing payments for thousands of online businesses, including ours and it is Sage Pay's utmost priority to ensure that transaction data is handled in a safe and secure way.

I don’t want to pay by card online / I would prefer be invoiced first / I prefer to order and pay offline.  How do I do this?

If you can't pay by card online, you can still create an order on our website and choose Purchase Order as the payment method.  When you check out, we'll email you a summary of the order containing links to download and print an invoice, and advice on how to make payment.  When making payment please quote the Invoice ID as an identifying reference. 

If for any reason you prefer not to create an order online, you can still add items to your basket and click "Estimate Shipping" (without having to register or check out), to work out the total cost and then send us a cheque, make a bank transfer, or call (+44) (0)20 7387 9373 (option 2), to pay by card over the phone.  For your security, please do not email card information as email is not a secure medium.  Please note that we require receipt of payment before despatching orders.  More information on payment methods 

What if the title I want isn't listed on your website?

Please contact Customer Services on +44 (0)20 7387 9373 (option 2), or email customerservices@samuelfrench.co.uk to check availability.  As a general rule, if a title is in print and available for sale in the UK, we can make it available to order on our website upon request, fast.
