Once my order has been dispatched when can I expect it to arrive? 

We work with a range of carefully selected partners to provide the products listed on our online shopIf you order more than one product, they may be delivered by different partners, at different times. 

Please allow up to 30 working days, excluding bank or public holidays in England and Wales, from the dispatch date for your order to reach you. Deliveries to the Highlands and Islands, Channel Islands, Isles of Sicily, and Isle of Man may take longer. Some products are made to order by UK makers and will have slightly longer dispatch times. 

Do you offer international shipping? 

Sadly, we do not ship outside the UK currently. However, we do deliver to all parts of the UK, as well as to the Channel Islands and Isle of Man. 

Can I return my order? 

If you want to return a product to us, please contact shoponline@redcross.org.uk and we will process the return or put you in contact with the relevant third party. The returns procedure will differ depending on which product has been purchased.  

All products returned must be unused (this includes being washed or worn) and have all the original packaging and labels attached. Unfortunately, we can’t accept any items that fail to meet these criteria. 

If you simply no longer want the product you ordered, you will need to cover the cost of returning the product to us and we will not refund your original delivery charge, unless you have exercised your right to cancel the contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations. 

What methods of payment do you accept? 

We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, American Express and debit/credit cards except Diners Card. We cannot accept payment by cheque for orders made online. 

Are payments secure? 

Payments are handled securely by Stripe, a payment system that uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. No payment data is shared with the British Red Cross or our partners.  

Is the website safe? 

The British Red Cross Gift Shop website is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant, which means it's secure and legitimate.
