If an order is not delivered (for whatever reason) after 2 attempts by the courier, the consignment will be returned to our warehouse and treated as a cancellation.

A refund will then be issued minus the delivery charge, return delivery charge and the price paid for any mixed to order paints.

Refunds can only be made to the original payment method you used to place your order.
