PRICING AND PAYMENT
DUE TO THE ESCALATING PRICE OF FLAX AND THE FLUCTUATING VALUE OF THE BRITISH POUND AGAINST THE EURO, VOLGA LINEN MAY BE OBLIGED TO INCREASE PRICES ACCORDINGLY DURING 2021.
We may vary the prices on our site at any time and without any notice. If your order is to be delivered within the European Union, both the product price and delivery services price includes applicable VAT or sales tax payable. If your order is to be delivered outside the European Union, it may attract additional import duties and local sales taxes which you will need to pay on receipt of the shipment.
Delivery charges are itemised on the order acknowledgement issued by Volga Linen.
Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
When you make a purchase for Products and delivery services as applicable from Volga Linen please make sure you do this in the currency of your bank or credit card. Please note that it is common practice for banks and credit card providers to have different selling and buying exchange rates for currency. We do not accept responsibility for charges or differing rates of currency exchange levied by a customer’s bank or credit card provider. Prices for Delivery Services provided by Contracts Limited are stated in the currency specified in your country in our Delivery section
Any Products purchased prior to any markdowns or discount offered will not be refunded the difference. You may return the higher priced item in its original condition, to us for either a refund or an exchange. However, if returned for an exchange, this is subject to availability.
You must confirm that the credit/debit card or payment method that is being used is yours and that all details you provide to us in respect thereof including, without limitation, name and address details are complete, correct and accurate . You further confirm that the credit/debit card or payment method is valid and the inputted payment details correct. All credit/debit cardholders and any payment account holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer or payment method provider. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment, we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal.
We are not responsible for any charges or other amounts applied by your card issuer or bank or payment method provider as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment or other method of payment in accordance with your order. If your credit/debit card or payment method is not denominated in the currency of your purchase indicated on the Site, the final price may be charged in the currency of your card or account. Such final price is calculated and charged by your card issuer or bank or payment method provider and therefore we shall not be responsible for any cost, expense, charge or other liability incurred or suffered by you as a result of your card issuer or payment method provider charging you in a currency other than the currency set out on the Site.

1.1 You will need to register for an online account with us before you can create your Gift Registry. To create an account, you will need to provide us with your name, your partner’s name (optional), your address, your email address and the date of your event.
1.3 Our terms and conditions of supply will apply to the Gift Registry arrangement in the same way as if you were buying goods normally, except that where the terms relate to payment and cancellation those provisions will apply only to the people who buy gifts for you.
1.4 To the extent of any conflict between the main terms of sale and conditions of supply and these additional terms for Gift Registry users, these additional terms shall apply.
2. Overview of How Our Service Works
- After registering an account with us, you compile a list of different gifts that you would like, from items available on our website. We will advise you if you choose items that we know will shortly be discontinued and so are not suitable for the Gift Registry.
- Your guests may buy these gifts for you by accessing your Gift Registry via our website.
- We will update the list immediately to avoid any duplication of gifts. Where gifts are purchased in store rather than online we will update the list as soon as possible.
- For in stock items we will put these aside for you until you confirm delivery details. For out of stock orders and for bespoke items we will only place the order once you have confirmed via email that you wish to take these items.
- Please note that bespoke or personalised items cannot be cancelled or returned after this confirmation.
- Once you have confirmed that you wish to take all the items purchased for you, we will start the process of getting these to you.
- As many of our products have long lead-times, we will be ready to deliver these gifts to you within 8-12 weeks of the Gift Registry closing. In-stock items can be delivered earlier, but additional shipping charges will be applicable for that separate delivery, unless collected from store.
- Our Gift Registry service is free of charge (except for shipping charges)
- You can manage your Gift Registry online
- Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel your Gift Registry for any reason and confirm your cancellation in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will discuss with you how to close the list and deliver or refund any items already purchased.
