When you place an order with SOBU we will be deemed that you are of legal age and have read, understood and agreed to our terms & conditions. Payment for orders will have to be made at the point of sale and not at the point of dispatch. All prices include VAT at the prevailing rate. We use the secure online gateway Stripe. Stripe has achieved the highest level of compliance under the PCI (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard. By making a purchase, you specifically authorise to submit information to the relevant third party for credit card authorisation. For more insight you may also want to read Shopify and Stripe's terms of service and privacy statement. All cardholders will be checked for validation and authorisation by the issuing credit card company or bank. If your card issuer declines authorisation for any reason, SOBU cannot be held liable for any delay in despatch or non delivery. Please supply us with a correct telephone number and/or email address so that we can contact you if there is a problem with your order. International orders are charged in GPB sterling. The prevailing rate of the day is charged/converted by the respective credit card company used. 


Discount codes issued can only be used until their expiry date.
