Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
We accept credit card payment. If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to US Dollars or your own currency.
We accept Visa, Visa Debit, Visa electron, Maestro and Mastercard.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
We are delighted you are shopping with Captain Costume and we want to take care of all our customers. Any information you give us will be treated as Confidential.
We take your privacy very seriously and we never share your information with anyone! There are some instances when we need to use your information and these are listed below.
• We may have to use your information when we are doing our checks when clearing payments…and this is only done when essential.
• We will use your IP address to help us get demographic information about our customers.
• When you register for our Newsletter we will keep your details in our secure database so we can send you our newsletter with great information about new products and special offers and fantastic party idea’s.
