Payment

Which forms of payment do you accept?

You can pay for products using a debit card, credit card, via PayPal or gift card. Gift card payment is only available when placing orders online.

All transactions are taken in pounds sterling (GBP £). If your credit card is in any other currency, the rate of exchange will be that of your card issuer and you may be charged an international fee by them. Payment online is in a secure environment. For more information about card security, please visit our privacy policy.

When is payment taken?

If you placed your order online, payment is taken as soon as your order is placed. If you placed your order over the phone with our customer service team, payment is taken when your order is dispatched. When an order is placed, the funds with which to pay may be allocated from your bank account/credit card to ensure that they are available when the charge is made.

Can I use/redeem my gift card online?

Yes.  Gift cards (either plastic or digital) can be used as all or part-payment for an online order.

Redeeming gift cards via the Online shop is new and there will be gift cards in circulation which state the gift card cannot be used for any online purchases. Card holders are able to redeem online if their gift card has a PIN. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer payment by gift card for orders placed over the phone.

For more information regarding gift cards, please visit our gift cards page.

How is VAT charged?

All our orders are shipped from the UK, so you may be charged import duties or taxes when the parcel reaches the delivery country. These charges vary and must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we regret we cannot predict their amount. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. If you have any questions related to customs charges, please contact your local customs office. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined.  We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.

No VAT will be charged for items dispatched outside the EU. If you think you have been charged VAT in error, please contact our friendly customer service team on 0300 123 2025 8am - 8pm (Mon - Sat), 9am - 6pm (Sun). Delivery is charged at cost and is generally calculated by the weight of the parcel.

Why isn't my discount code working?

Discount codes are set to expire after a certain time, so it might be that you're using an outdated code. Most of our vouchers are for a single use and are case sensitive. You are also unable to use more than one on a single order. If you do experience an issue with your discount code, please contact our friendly customer service team on 0300 123 2025 8am - 8pm (Mon - Sat), 9am - 6pm (Sun).

I forgot to use my offer code – can I claim it afterwards?

This is simple to fix – as long as the code was valid at the time of ordering, all you need to do is email us at online.shop@nationaltrust.org.uk with the code and your order number. If applicable, we will then refund the amount back to you.
