Methods of payment - Credit/Debit Card

We accept all major credit cards including Mastercard, Visa, Switch, Solo and Discover.

When paying using the PayPal Express checkout our website links to the PayPal website where you will be able to confirm your payment/shipping details before being returned to the Japanya website to complete your order.

We also accept payment by UK cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Japanya and posted along with your order number to our trading address. Goods cannot be dispatched until the cheque has been cleared. Please allow up to seven working days.

If your delivery address is a non EU country, VAT will be automatically discounted at checkout.

Our VAT Registration Number is 867 9114 83.

The prices displayed on our website are in British pounds. You may like to use the "currency converter" link (shown on our shopping basket page when the shipping destination is selected to be outside the UK) to estimate the price of goods in your own currency. The "currency converter" is intended as a guide only. Outside the UK, your credit card company should exchange the amount charged to the currency of your country at the current rate. Any fees imposed by a customer's card company for currency conversion will be the responsibility of the customer.

Product Availability

All products available for sale are kept in stock at the time of order, but if a product is subsequently found to be out of stock we will contact you with details of your order's revised timescale and to give you the opportunity to cancel your order.


Order Confirmation

Once your credit card payment has been accepted or if you have paid by cheque, once this has cleared, you will be sent an email acknowledging our acceptance of your order within 24 hours.


Packaging

Please note we do have a policy of trying to minimise the amount of packaging we use by recycling and re-using materials, particularly for internal stuffing, as much as possible.

Although we don't offer a gift wrapping service as standard we do understand you may wish items to be gift wrapped especially if they are being sent direct to a friend or relative. Therefore, we can gift wrap your order free of charge on request. If you would like items to be gift wrapped please enter your request in the order comment box or alternatively contact us by email after placing your order.


Faulty or Incorrect Goods

If a product is faulty or damaged or is not what you ordered, we will be happy to exchange or refund the item within 30 days subject to item availability. In these circumstances we will pay for the reasonable* delivery for return of the goods. Please email us or write to our Trading Address (see above) with your order number and the details of the item(s).

We cannot be held responsible for damage due to general wear and tear or from a failure to follow the care guidelines.

*Please note that by reasonable we mean any delivery service equivalent to the cost of Royal Mail Recorded Delivery.


Cancelling your order because it is unwanted

Customers* can cancel their order within 14 days of receipt of goods. Goods must be returned with the original packaging supplied. On receipt of the goods, and assuming they are in a re-saleable condition**, we will arrange your refund within 7 days of receipt of goods. We may reduce the amount refunded to you if returned items have been used or handled excessively before return. Return carriage costs are the customer's responsibility. Please note pierced earrings may not be returned unless faulty.

For UK standard and Worldwide airmail orders, in addition to refunding the cost of the item(s) we will refund the original delivery charge. If only part of a multiple item order is being returned only the cost of the returned item(s) will be refunded.

For UK special delivery, "International Tracked" or "International Signed" orders we will only refund the standard delivery component of the postage charge.

Throughout November and December we offer an extended returns policy. Items (provided they are in their original condition) can be returned to us for exchange or refund up to 30 days after Christmas.

Orders purchased by businesses (for example for photo shoots) cannot be returned for a full refund.

*We may reduce the amount refunded to you if returned items have been used or handled excessively before return.


Returning Goods

In the event that goods need to be returned to us, please obtain a proof of postage certificate from your post office, in case the package fails to reach us. Japanya will accept no responsibility for returned items until they are on company premises.
