- Placing an Order and Order Acceptance
Our products are sold for personal use only. There will be no contract of any kind between you and Seraphine Botanicals unless we actually dispatch the products to you. Your order (including payment) is an offer to buy from us, so nothing we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually send the product to you. At any point up until then, we may decide not to send the products to you and to give you a full refund. At this moment in time, Seraphine Botanicals does not have a backorder system so if an item is out of stock, it will be automatically left out from your order. We will inform you of this via email. You will have to re-order when it becomes available again. At the moment the goods are dispatched (and not before), a contract will be made between you and us.
By clicking on the confirm order button you place your order request for goods from the Website. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of simple instructions.
Once you have placed your order, we will send to you an acknowledgement providing you with a payment reference and the value of your order, which has been debited to your credit/debit card.
This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Seraphine Botanicals.
If you require any information regarding your order(s) please contact us on email@example.com
We may not accept your order if an item you have ordered is out of stock, we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or if we identify a product or pricing error. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time.
If we are unable to fulfil your order we will contact you via email advising you of this.
You are responsible for updating us on any changes in your email or contact details. An email which has been sent by us is deemed to have been accepted and read by you.
- Description of Product
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of products appearing on the Website are accurate at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
This may not always be up to date.
If, by mistake, we have under-priced a product, we will not have to deliver that product to you at the stated price, provided that we tell you before we post the product. You can then decide if you still want the product.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible when describing products on the Website. However, to the extent permitted by applicable law or due to certain limitations encountered through the mechanics of the Website, we cannot guarantee that product descriptions, colours or other content available on the Website are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
All prices indicated for products on the website are exclusive of delivery charges.
The total cost of your order is the price of the products ordered and delivery charges as set out in FAQ under Delivery Charges & Policy.
Payment can be made by any of the methods specified in FAQ under Accepted Credit Cards.
We can not be held liable for any delays due to card validation checks.
- Passing of Property
We will retain the legal ownership of the goods until full payment has been made by you and such payment has been received by us. Legal ownership of the goods will immediately revert to us if we refund any such payment to you.
All products we may supply you are for personal use only and cannot be re-sold, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, signed by the authorized signatory of both parties.
- Delivery and Acceptance
We aim to dispatch all orders within 48 hours after receipt of funds due.
Reasonable allowance should be made for orders made over the weekend and at National Holidays. We do our best to deliver within 30 days of the date of your order but shall not be liable for loss occasioned by delay in delivery arising out of any cause beyond our control.
Orders should be delivered within 5 -12 working days after receipt of order. Any delivery timescales quoted to you are indicative only.
All orders must be signed for upon receipt.
As soon as you have received the goods, you will assume all risk in the goods.
If you provide us with a wrong delivery address and your goods are signed for by another party, or lost in the post, we cannot be held responsible for any loss you incur as a result.
Upon receipt of the goods you must inspect the goods and you will be deemed to have accepted the goods. We shall not be obliged to accept any rejection of the goods at a later date. Your statutory rights are not affected.
If you have not received the entire order as detailed in the order confirmation email sent to you when an order is received, please contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Returns and Exchanges
If you have to return or exchange a product, please do so within 28 days of purchase & enclose your original receipt.
Refunds are made based on the original purchase price. Unfortunately, we are not able to refund shipping costs or take responsibility for lost / damaged items.

We are unable to process returns & exchanges without the original product(s), and the list of required information listed in the Returns and Exchanges section of our FAQ.
