Buy Britain allows buyers and sellers to use and accept payments made by most major credit and debit cards. All prices quoted and payments processed on Buy Britain are in GBP (British Pounds), even where credit or debit cards are issued in another country/currency.
Paying for Goods or Services
Buyers are able to purchase goods or services listed by the sellers through the checkout system using a credit or debit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, JCB). Payments made are inclusive of all applicable taxes and fees, and shipping costs are quoted at checkout upon entering an address. If no shipping option is offered at this stage, this means the seller does not currently ship to your location. You may in this case wish to contact the seller to discuss options.
Buy Britain acts as an intermediary that allows a) sellers to accept certain credit and debit card payments on the Buy Britain website, b) have the resulting funds deposited into their seller account and c) withdraw their funds (after transaction and commission fees) into their bank account. Buy Britain may add or remove acceptable payment methods available to buyers at its own discretion.
Sellers may only use Buy Britain’s payment processing facility to sell those items listed on Buy Britain’s website, and agree to dispatch the items they sell once a payment transaction is complete and showing in their payment account. Buy Britain reserves the right to suspend or terminate a seller’s payment processing functionality if the seller uses the service in any other way.
