Is your online ordering system safe?
A company called SagePay provides our credit card handling. These people specialise in credit card purchasing via the Internet and use the latest 128-bit encryption technology. The credit card number is checked against your address for verification and if there are any discontinuities the transaction will not be authorised. It is so safe that we would recommend people use this service instead of sending credit card details through the post.
In addition to these checks we take a random number of our customers and contact them to confirm they have recently placed an order online. In line with our discretion policy we will always introduce ourselves as Venus Sales Ltd and check to ensure it is convenient for you to talk, if it is not convenient to talk give us a time to ring back and we will do so. We will NEVER offer the information of what was ordered, however we may ask you to tell us one or two items that were ordered.
The most important thing to note, if you are one of the random samples, is that we will NEVER ask you to give us your full credit card details again unless you are placing another order. Therefore DO NOT volunteer this information.

If any item is faulty we will happily exchange it for you. You can cancel an order upto 8 working days after receipt, you must then arrange for the items to be retruned to us. Due to the personal nature of most of our products we can only exchange items that are unused, this is something that we are sure you can appreciate and cannot offer refunds or credits on items of a personal nature or on books and DVDs/Videos where the seal is not intact (due to the copyright issue). Please enclose with the item a brief letter explaining the problem and containing your name, address and order number.
How are bulk buy discounts calculated?
Bulk buy discounts are based on a percentage of the lowest priced product in the deal that is added to the basket. For example a free item is calculated as 100% of the price of the cheapest item off your shopping.
If a multiple of the offer is purchased then the discount will be a multiple of the lowest priced item. For example if the lowest priced item costs £3.00 and two lots of the deal are purchased, the money saved (on a "get one free deal") will be £6.00.
What does discontinued mean?
Unfortunately all suppliers discontinue lines from time to time. If this happens with one of your items we will mark it on your order and refund the cost of the item to you.
What does to follow mean?
We try to keep as many items in stock as is possible; however occasionally we are out of stock of some items whilst we wait for a delivery from one of our many suppliers. If this happens with one of the items you have ordered we will send the rest of your order to you. The outstanding item (or to follow item) will then be sent to you as soon as we receive it from our supplier.
Please note that any to follow items are sent to you at no further expense to you, we cover the extra postage costs.
