Why has my credit card been declined?
The most common reason for an order declining is that the billing address details have been entered incorrectly i.e. they don't match the details your bank has on file for the credit card you're using. To avoid this, please ensure that you enter in the address to which your bank statements are sent to in the 'billing address' section. For further details of declined payments, please contact your card issuer.All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your credit card refuses to or for some reason does not authorise payment to Essential Self Care then you will be notified of this during the checkout process.
My order didn’t go through, but I think I've been charged?
Only orders that make it through the completed checkout process are processed by our online payment gateway to your credit card.
My order was confirmed but an item is out of stock. Why is this?
If we are very low in stock of an item that you've ordered, on rare occasion, we may not be able to fulfil this item on your order immediately. If this is the case, we will contact you to let you know about the expected fulfilment time or to arrange a replacement, backorder or refund.
I saw something I love but it’s sold out! Will you be restocking it?
Many of our products are hand-made by us in-house in small quantity batches and some are locally sourced from outside suppliers, so occasionally certain items may be out of stock temporarily if certain ingredients or products are unavailable.
If something appears out of stock on our website, it is usually only for a few days, so please check back again soon to see if it's available or contact us for an estimated time of arrival.
Can I exchange an item that was purchased Online?
Yes. We can exchange items returned to us 7 days from delivery, provided that they're received by us in an un-opened, un-used state, in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition. You can visit our Return Policy page for more information.
