We accept credit card or debit card payments via a secure server which encrypts the information before sending across the internet. Cards we accept include: MasterCard; Visa; Visa Delta; Solo; Switch; Maestro. We also accept PayPal. For payment of goods on collection we will accept cash payment.
Please note that goods will not be delivered until the customer's funds paid to PJ Beads Ltd have cleared in full.
Please note that all transactions will be carried out in pounds sterling. Product prices on the retail site are shown to include VAT at 20% and to exclude VAT at 20% on the wholesale site. Checkout will show prices exclusive of VAT with the VAT added as a bulk item. Once you have placed your order, confirmation will be sent to you via e-mail complete with Transaction and Order Reference numbers. PJ Beads Ltd monitor prices on a daily basis.
We will not be held responsible for pricing errors due to software malfunctions, or human error. This website operates on an 'invitation to treat' basis and not as an 'offer for sale' as a result, PJ Beads Ltd reserves the right to decline orders for bulk or high value purchases.
Credit Card Security
At the payment stage of the ordering process, you will be passed on to a Secure Order Processing page hosted by our payment partner SagePay. Your details will be encrypted by 128-bit industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to provide encryption of personal information such as your name, address and credit card details. This encrypts information while it is being transmitted across the Internet so that unauthorised people cannot read it. In addition, for extra security, your payment details go direct to the bank and we never even see them.
We take the security of your data very seriously. We collect only the basic personal details required to process your order. We do not release, sell or share this information with any other companies, organisations or individuals.
Delivery and Urgent Orders
We aim to dispatch orders within two working days of receipt, which we achieve 90% of the time. We use Royal Mail 1st class service and Parcel Force for heavier packages. They may need to be signed for so please try to give a delivery address where someone will be present to receive the parcel. We can send to a work address or deliver to a neighbour if requested to do so.

We hope you will never have a problem but be assured that if you do our staff will make every effort to resolve it in a speedy and courteous way.
Out of Stock Items
We try to keep every item on our website in stock at all times. Unfortunately this is not always possible. If an item is unavailable we will do our best to contact you by phone or email to notify you. Otherwise, we will send a close substitute if you have indicated on ordering that this is acceptable.
We will credit or refund the cost of the missing item if you do not wish to have an alternative supplied. If we are unable to contact you and you have indicated you do not want substitutes we reserve the right to send a partial shipment. On occasions we can back order items and send them on postage free, but this is at the discretion of PJ Beads Ltd.
Environmental Policy and Social Responsibility
We are concerned that nothing we buy should contribute towards exploitation of people or the environment. We have dealt with many of our suppliers for over 25 years, have visited their premises and know them personally. Wherever possible we buy from people we have visited or from factories, which are regulated and inspected. Wood comes from sustainable forests, bone from domestic cattle and freshwater pearls from farmed sources. We try to use sea transport in preference to airfreight. We recycle boxes and packaging where it is reasonable to do so.
Our plated items, where relevant, all conform to all EU laws restricting the use of nickel. For more information see www.teg.co.uk/nickel/94-27-EC.htm
