Placing an order
We've made shopping online even easier! All you have to do is add items to your cart as you browse through the site. Once you have chosen what you need, you simply proceed to the Checkout stage where we will ask you to confirm the details of your order. We'll also take you through the delivery options where you can choose to either pick up at a store near you or have your items shipped to your home or workplace. The last stage of the process is selecting your desired payment method. We currently accept VISA, VISA Debit Cards, Mastercard, American Express, American Express Membership Rewards® Points, GE Creditline, GEM Visa and PayPal as forms of payment for online transactions.

Viewing an order
You can view an order throughout the shopping process and change it accordingly. Once the order is placed and payment is made, it cannot be edited or changed. You can, however, view the order (and any past orders) in the account section of your profile by clicking the user name link at the top of the page.

Changing or cancelling an order
Once an order has been accepted and payment made, it cannot be changed. Depending on whether the order has been processed and shipped by the store, you may be able to cancel the order by calling us on 0800 088 144 or completing the contact us form.

Tracking your order
We use two methods of delivery. For most small to medium items, our carrier will be CourierPost. Once your item has been shipped, you will receive a notification email with the shipping reference number. All CourierPost deliveries can be tracked and traced here.

If you have ordered large bulky items, they will be shipped by our in-store carrier or local freight company. Due to varying delivery dates and times with certain furniture and bedding items, your local store will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your order to arrange delivery. If you require an update on your order status, please contact your local store directly or call us on 0800 088 144.

Full details on delivery can be found here.

Product Availability
We make it a priority to stock products online that we can fulfill across the country but there may be occasions where the popularity of a product, promotion or special price means it sells out faster than our systems update. Products offered on the website may vary from our retail stores and in some cases may only be available online. This also applies to pricing on some promotions where 'online only' pricing may apply.

Generally, if the product is available to be purchased online it will have an 'add to cart' button. When a product is no longer available to 'add to cart' it means it may have sold out, be temporarily out of stock or be on backorder. You can still add the product to your wish list and purchase when the item comes back into stock. Most items are available to buy online. If the product is not available online, it may be available in store.

TP Toys does not guarantee the availability of any specific product at any time.

Limit per person
We may limit some promotions and product quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions include orders placed from the same user account, credit card, and sometimes even orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit quantities sold, including the right to limit or prohibit sales to resellers.

Freight Charges
Freight charges are calculated by the combination of the weight and size of your item and the distance between the shipping address nominated by you and the distance to your closest TP Toys store. This is done automatically as you progress through the checkout process and you will be advised of the total cost before committing to the purchase. You can nominate to pick up the items from your local TP Toys store or we can ship to your work or home address. Check out the delivery page for a full list of charges and information. Please note, if you have special delivery instructions, note those on your order or contact us with your details. There may be additional charges for special delivery requirements.

Delivery Times
Our stores ship items Monday to Friday with regular pickup and drop-off cycles by our carriers. All deliveries require a signature to ensure the security of the item. Please make sure someone is available to receive your package(s) and advise us of any special delivery details in the notes section of your order. Deliveries are made during normal business hours and if we cannot obtain a signature from the recipient, a card-to-call will be left by our courier drivers.

Delivery times are subject to stock availability, the weight and dimensions of the item and also the distance between your nominated shipping address and the store shipping your order. Click here for more information.

Any personal information you disclose to us is handled with the strictest confidence in accordance with our Privacy Policy. In addition, we provide after-sales support with a large network of TP Toys stores nationwide.

What is a 'CCV'?
The Credit Card Verification Code (CCV) is the three- or four-digit code on your credit/debit card used as a security measure for all online transactions. It only appears on the card itself, which verifies that you, the buyer, have the credit/debit card with you during the purchase. The CCV is printed on your credit/debit card, not embossed like the account number is. Where the CCV is located depends on the type of credit/debit card you're using. On Visa/MasterCard, the CCV is the last three digits on the back. With American Express, it's the last four digits on the front.

Why can't I see where to add an item to my cart?
When an item has run out of its online allocation of stock it may remain active, however the ‘Add to Cart' button will disappear while our team review the stock levels of the item and either add additional stock to our allocation, or remove the product from the website. If you are unable to add an item to your cart, you can use the ‘Find In Store' tool to locate local stores with stock and purchase directly in-store.

Why can't I add more than 1 or 2 units of this item to my cart?
Occasionally, due to stock or sale restrictions, we limit the maximum number of a particular product that can be purchased. This is to ensure that there is enough stock of a product for personal shoppers and they are not snapped up by resellers and commercial customers.

I have entered all my payment information, but the order does not seem to be going through?
If you are having issues processing your payment, you can try a few of the following:

Some versions of Internet Explorer are no longer supported and occasionally cause compatibility issues, try switching to Google Chrome or Firefox.
Double check if you have any ad or pop-up blockers that may be stopping verification windows from opening.
