UK VAT TAX
Customers outside of the EU will not be charged UK VAT tax (at the current rate) however local Government and import duties may be levied on any goods dispatched by post and are payable by the customer upon receipt of your goods, these costs are non-refundable by Campbell’s of Beauly as they are out of our control. All orders on this site will be charged in British Pounds Sterling.
CAN I HAVE FREE POSTAGE?
We all like free postage and we have considered offering it but the costs would have to be absorbed somewhere else (i.e. the price of the clothes going up). This is a genuine charge that we have to pay and therefore we have no alternative other than to ask you to contribute to this cost. We may run promotions on occasion offering free shipping, to be the first to know about these please sign up to our newsletter.
WHY DON’T YOU ALWAYS OFFER FREE RETURNS WHEN MOST OF YOUR COMPETITORS DO?
Again, as we mentioned earlier, it would mean the costs being pushed on to the clothes. The costs are more transparent this way.
HOW SECURE IS YOUR WEBSITE?
All transactions are totally safe and secure and are handled by PayPal. PayPal is a safer, faster, more secure way to pay online – your financial details are never shared (not even with us) and your bank, credit or debit card details are safeguarded. PayPal also protects your purchases so just in case there is a problem you can get your money back and with each purchase a confirmation email receipt is immediately sent to you.

Around the world tens of thousands of retailers (including Zara, Top Shop, Savile Row Company, Boots, Superdrug) use PayPal to securely process online transactions.

HOW DO I RETURN GOODS?
Please fill out the returns and exchanges form enclosed in your package as this will help speed up the process. Any comments regarding the reason for the return are greatly appreciated. Then send returns by registered mail, insured for its full value to: Customer Returns, Campbell’s of Beauly, Highland Tweed House, High Street, Beauly, IV4 7BU, Scotland, UK. The customer is responsible for the postage costs incurred when returning an item. Goods must be placed back into their original packaging with the return slip and we recommend that you send it recorded delivery (first or second class) from the post office. Campbell’s of Beauly cannot be held responsible for any item that does not arrive here. Delivery charges are non-refundable, unless the item is returned within 10 days. If you are returning goods from outside the UK please read the following carefully: Many items that are returned to us get held up at customs due to incorrect labelling resulting in substantial customs charges and in some cases goods being returned to the sender (you). This often occurs to items coming back from the U.S.; we are unable to accept, or refund, any such costs associated with return goods levied by customs or carriers. Please able both the outside of the package and the airway bill with the following phrase: ‘BRITISH RETURN GOODS’ This is very important as it prevents you, the customer, being charged with any import duty or tax on goods that are simply being returned to the UK for exchange or refund.
HOW DO I EXCHANGE GOODS?
On our returns sheet you can ask us to exchange an alternative garment, or more suitable colour or style, and if it is in stock we will dispatch it. If we do not have it in stock but it will be arriving into stock shortly we will notify you and you can decide whether you wish to wait or receive a refund. If you receive an exchange repeat postage charges will be waived. Should you prefer to make the exchange for an alternative style or type of garment you may also do this, and if there is a payment difference in your favour we will make the appropriate refund, or if the amount is greater then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When exchanging an item please fill in the form on the dispatch note that accompanies your parcel with the new colour, style or item required. It is a good idea to check that it is in stock by contacting us first by e-mail. You will have to send the item back to us at your own expense and it must be in its original condition and packaging. We recommend that any returns/exchanges are sent by recorded or special delivery ‘signed for post’ as we are unable to accept any responsibility for items that do not reach us.

Please make sure you send any returns via registered post with proof of posting for your own peace of mind. Your credit card company will typically take 4-7 working days to process the refund.
