Delivery and Payment - Refunds, Repairs & Exchanges

Delivery and Payment

For orders placed online and by telephone:

Unless we communicate with you to notify you of a delay, orders will normally be despatched within 3 working days after your payment has been made, and you can expect to receive them within 5 working days. The website offers you the choice of paying by PayPal or credit / debit card.

In some cases, such as when items are out of stock or there are conditions making postal deliveries difficult, then items may take longer to arrive – in such cases we will contact you to let you know how long the delivery is likely to take, and you can choose whether to wait for the order or to cancel it.

In cases where orders are placed with incorrect address, phone or e-mail details, The Wonderful Bear Emporium may not be able to contact you to keep you informed of your order progress, or indeed may not be able to fulfil delivery of your order. Please ensure that you enter details carefully to avoid this from happening.
