Terms and Conditions
Prices Goods are invoiced in pounds (£) sterling at the price prevailing at the time you place your order. Prices are expressed exclusive of Value Added Tax ("VAT") which will be charged at the current rate as shown on the on-line order form and are exclusive of delivery charges.
Delivery charges will be added to the price of the goods purchased so that the on-line order form shows the total charges which we will debit. The prices indicated apply only to on-line purchases and are not indicative of the price of identical goods purchased by any other means. We reserve the right to amend any prices without any prior notice and to end any promotion at any time. We reserve the right to add or withdraw any item at any time.
Sparks Gift Wholesalers and Amalfi Imports try to ensure that all prices displayed are correct and within the company's pricing structure.

Sparks Gift Wholesalers or Amalfi Imports will send you an email to acknowledge receipt of your order ("Advice Note"). Receipt of your credit or debit card details and debit of payments does not constitute our acceptance of your order.
Our acceptance of your order takes place upon dispatch of the goods to you at which point the purchase contract is made. We reserve the right to decline your order for any reason whatsoever and to refuse bulk orders. If we do so we will contact you and will refund in full such payments which have been made in relation to the cancelled/declined order.
Where a choice of design is available we reserve the right to supply alternative product due to stock availability. We will however always endeavour to contact and advise in this circumstance.
Please note that we do not consider any dent/crush or imperfection to any packaging or display box as legitimate cause for a credit to be issued. In the event of damaged outer packaging and display boxes, Sparks Gift Wholesalers/Amalfi Imports reserves the right to issue a credit or refund for up to a maximum of 10% of the product value.
When we pick and process orders we endeavour to ensure that the best box/packaging available is picked and sent out.
Unless the actual product is damaged then no claim will be entertained for damage to the product box/packaging.
We always pack orders using plenty of shredded packing material to alleviate damages in transit but ultimatelty cannot be held responsible for damage to product boxes/packaging.
Credit Card Payments
We are unable to accept credit cards that are due to expire within the next 5 days. Card details are checked and verified by a third party and goods are dispatched once authorisation has been obtained by Sparks Gift Wholesalers or Amalfi Imports.
To the fullest extent permitted by law we will not be liable to you or any third party for any: loss of business, loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of anticipated savings, wasted expenditure, loss of privacy and/or loss of data; and/or any other loss or damage which does not result directly from the actions of Sparks Gift Wholesalers, Amalfi Imports, its sub-contractors or agents; and which arises out of or is related to your purchase of goods via the Website.

Description of products
We endeavour to describe our products clearly and correctly and use stock photos to show that product. Sometimes the photo will not show all colour/size/shape and assorted designs for all the product options. I.e. A product might be available in four colours but the stock photo shows only one item in one colour. If this item is ordered then we reserve the right to supply that item in any of the colours available as stock availability allows.
Sometimes an error may be made in the desciption of a product. This is unfortunate and we try very hard to keep such errors to a minimum. Should this happen Sparks Gift Wholesalers will refund in full for that item only on it's return to us in an unused and re-sellable condition and in it's original umdamaged packaging.
Out of Stock Products
We try to ensure that our online stock database is kept up to date at all times. However, as we also run a busy cash and carry warehouse, our customers can come into the warehouse and purchase items which we have no way of then removing from the online store immediately.
Therefore, some products remain on the website 'showing' available to purchase. If and when this happens we endeavour to contact you in the first instance to see if you may want an alternative.
If, say the missing items are only a small part of the order then we may process it immediately as generally, our customers want the order quickly and normally don't mind not receiving a few lines to take delivery promptly. .
If there are several lines out of stock or the missing items make up a substantial part of an order then we always send an email and/or telephone message to let you know and offer alternatives. We will hold an order over until we have made contact but if no contact can be made (within 24 hours) then we may ship the order at our discretion.
If the total of out of stock products is less than 30% of the order value (exc vat & carriage) then we will dispatch at our discretion without contacting the customer as this expedites most orders satisfactorily. We are obviously sorry when we have to do this.
Whatever happens, if an item is out of stock and not sent then you will not be charged for that item. Either the payment is deducted from your original invoice total when we capture the payment or a full refund for that item will be made back to your card - this is normally done by us at close of business on the day that the order is dispatched.
However it may take an extra day or so for the bank to actually process this and for you to see it back in your account. Please also see our refunds article and order totals and payments in our Knowledge base for more detais.
Returns / Re-stocking / Cancelled Orders
We endeavour to process and dispatch all orders within 48 hours of receiving them (allow longer times at busy periods) and pay for next day delivery. (Although it is next day we stipulate that 72 hours is allowed in case of third party difficulties)
If the customer is not able to receive and sign for the delivery then the couriers will attempt a re-delivery the following business day or instructions to collect from a local depot. Should an order be returned to us by the couriers due to the customer not accepting the delivery or being absent when the delivery attempts have taken place and the order is subsequently returned to us then we reserve the right to charge the courier return fee and an additional re-stocking charge of 10% of the net order value or £25 (whichever is the greater).
Should an order be picked and packed ready for dispatch and then cancelled by the customer we reserve the right to charge 10% of the net order value or £25 (whichever is the greater). These terms and conditions are applicable to you upon your accessing the site and/or completing the registration or shopping process.
Should any item returned to us as purported to be in a faulty condition be deemed to be in a good and saleable condition during any subsequent quality control checks, then this may also be subject to a restocking fee of 10% of the net product(s) value or £25 (whichever is the greater). Please note that no returns are accepted on goods unless faulty and unless Sparks Gift Wholesalers has been notified in writing of these faults within 72 hours of delivery of order.
We reserve the right to collect any products that are damaged or faulty or are included as part of a claim. Collection may be authourised via one of our courier partners, and a refund may not be issued until the product has arrived back to our warehouse and has been checked in. Please be aware that a refund can take up to 7-10days to process.
All claims for damaged or faulty goods must be made in writing (email) within 72 hours of receipt of products. Please be aware that any claim submitted more than 3 days (72 hours) after you have taken delivery of your order cannot be considered.
Please note that we do not consider any dent/crush or imperfection to any packaging or display box as legitimate cause for a credit to be issued. In the event of damaged outer packaging and display boxes, Sparks Gift Wholesalers and/or Amalfi Imports reserves the right to issue a credit or refund for up to a maximum of 10% of the product value.
