What payment methods do you accept?
Alfred & Co. London accept all major credit & debit cards, including Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Paypal, Apple Pay and Clearpay.
Do you offer Paypal?
We do offer Paypal most of the time but unfortunately we have found that Paypal no longer operates in the best interests of its customers and occasionally we do have to switch them off. This only happens when Paypal bizarrely decide to withhold funds from us.
Paypal, although a useful payment option historically, from our point of view have struggled to keep pace with changes in the ecommerce sector. With the advance of Google Pay and Apple Pay, 99.9% of our customers do not need to use Paypal.
If I pay with Clearpay how soon will you dispatch the order?
Regardless of whether you pay with Clearpay or not, we will dispatch the order same day if ordered before 3pm.
How do we know our payment details are safe?
Alfred & Co. London ensure all transactions are secure by using the latest in SSL Secure Encryption technology. We also partner with the most widely trusted payment processors on the market – these include Stripe, Paypal & Apple.
Do you accept payment over the phone?
Alfred & Co. London only accept payment online through our website as this is the most secure method of payment. We cannot accept payment over the phone.
Does your jewellery come with a jewellery box?
We do offer the option for you to receive a jewellery box with your order – this costs only £1.99 and is perfect if you’re buying as a gift for someone. The box is made from premium cardboard, with the key reason why we now use a cardboard material for our jewellery boxes, is simply because it is 10 x more environmentally friendly than the plastic version. Cardboard style jewellery boxes are also considered to be more tasteful and charming.
Are your jewellery pieces good quality?
All Alfred & Co. London items are continuously assessed to ensure they meet our high quality standards. If you are looking for good quality cufflinks, men’s jewellery or ladies jewellery then you are in the right place.
If I don’t want the item can I return it?
Yes Alfred & Co. London offer a 14 day no questions asked returns policy (apart from earrings do to hygiene reasons!) where you can receive a full refund. All we ask is that the item is returned in its original condition and unworn. If you would like to return your item, simply select the “Contact Us” option at the top of the page.
The reason we offer a 14 day return period is simply to protect our loyal customers – we need to ensure that all of our customers receive their jewellery in 100% perfect condition – therefore, we need to ensure that jewellery isn’t being worn before being returned.
How soon will I receive my refund?
Once we receive the returned item, providing it is returned to us unworn and in perfect condition, we will process your refund immediately – this may take up to 3 working days to reach your bank account.
