Potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and card details are encoded so they can only be read on the secure server. This information is authenticated to ensure it only gets sent to this secure server and is checked to make sure it has not been tampered with during transfer.
Security checks are also made on all transactions, to ensure the authenticity of each card payment.
What payment cards do you accept?
We accept most major credit and debit cards.
What currencies can I use?
The cost of your order will be based on the UK price in pounds sterling, so the cost of the order in your local currency will depend on the exchange rate at the time of purchase. Whilst prices may be viewed on the website in Euros and Dollars this is an estimate based on recent exchange rates, and may not be an exact reflection of the final order price.
Do we accept gift vouchers?
We currently sell both website and in-store gift cards, only the website gift cards can be redeemed against web purchases. In-store gift cards can be redeemed at one of our 5 stores.
Can I use a different payment method?

When will my card be charged for the order?
With standard web orders using a credit or debit card, your card will not be charged until we have dispatched the order. Be aware that PayPal orders are charged when the order is initially placed.

Pockets only ever retail genuine, designer brand products of the very best quality.
Do you have more sizes available?
We may have more sizes available, give us a call and we will find out for you (01743) 353 993. With some brands we can order in more stock quite quickly if we have sold out.
Will we be getting more stock?
With certain items we only get one delivery in at the beginning at the season, whereas with others we may receive additional stock later in the season. With select brands we can also order individually just for you, so it is well worth giving us a call to find out (01743) 353 993.
Can I get more information about a product?
Give us a call and we will be able to tell you more.
The item I bought is now on sale, can I get the difference refunded?
We will often run short timed sales promotions, allowing you to get an item at a great price for a certain period. Because of this, the price of an item may fluctuate from time to time. With this in mind, it is not possible to get the difference refunded should you see that the price has changed at a later date.

How do I return an item?
The easiest way for customers in the UK to return an item is by arranging a collection with our courier DHL, using the returns label included with your order. Using DHL eReturn is free for full price orders.
Customers who do not qualify for free returns via DHL eReturn will be charged £8 (UK customers) or €10 (EU customers) for using the service (deducted from your refund). Please note: if your order contained a mixture of sale and full price items then you do not qualify for free returns via DHL eReturn and will be charged £8 (UK customers) or €10 (EU customers) for using the service.
(1) Complete the returns form. We need to know your order number, which will start '1000'. Completing the returns form will make processing your return much faster.
(2) Pack your return item(s). Use the DHL Flyer bag included with your order or any suitable and secure box.
(3) Label the package. Attach one label securely to the package, ensuring it is clear and easy to read.
(4) Book your collection online by visiting the DHL website here. You will be prompted to enter your waybill number, found on the returns labels below the first barcode.
(5) Complete the pick up. Hand the package and second label to the DHL driver.
Overseas customers and UK customers who do not wish to use the DHL eReturns service can still return items, though you will be liable for any postage costs incurred. Items should be returned to the following address:
Unit 5 Hotspur Park,
Knights Way, Battlefield Enterprise Park,
If your order was delivered via HubBox please post your item back to the above address rather than returning the item to the collection point.
All correctly returned items will only be credited to the account from which the original purchase was made. We are unable to refund any shipping charges incurred. We advise all customers check items thoroughly on receipt of goods, prior to removing and disposing of labels and original packaging. If you have any queries or would like to discuss the returns procedure with a member of our team please do not hesitate to contact us.
