Payment

The pre-authorisation fund is held on your card by your bank. A pre-authorisation can be held on your card for a minimum of 10 to 15 working days and up to 30 days depending on the bank's policy.  Pre-authorisation should be released by your issuing bank automatically, if not please contact your bank to find out more about their policy.

In the case of debit cards, authorisations can drop off the account anywhere from 7 working days after they have been actioned.  Depending on your bank's policy, Credit cards holds can last as long as thirty days, this varies depending on the bank.

If your items are not available there will be no attempt made to capture the funds and the funds will be released from the pre-authorisation. Depending on your bank's policy the money will be released from pending to your account anytime from 7 to 30 days.

Orders can be paid for using the following payment methods:

  1. Visa/Mastercard
  2. PayPal
  3. Arnotts Gift Card - Euro orders only
  4. Wonder Card points - Euro orders only
  5. One4All Gift Cards (limit of €50 per transaction) - Euro orders only

When an online purchase is made, the customer’s card details are checked and the transaction is authorised as normal, however the transaction is set to a ‘pre-authorised’ status. This means that funds are placed on hold for a pre-determined time and the money is not debited to the account at this point. The pre-authorisation guarantees that the customer’s account has the necessary funds to pay for the goods and gives the option of completing the transaction at a later date.

The Arnotts Wonder Card can be used to earn points which are redeemable towards purchases in-store and online. Kindly note, Woder Card is only available for transaction in Euro.
To redeem Wonder Points, select Wonder Points as a method of payment during the checkout process.

You can also manage your Wonder Card in My Account.

If we have to cancel your order due to an item(s) being out of stock, your Wonder Points will be added back onto your Wonder account.

If you choose to return an item and have used Wonder Points to pay for it, these will be refunded back to your account so you will not lose out on any points.

  • If your credit or debit card is rejected by our online payment processing systems, please double check that all of the details you entered were correct. If you are sure you are using a valid card, please try again with the same card or place the order again using a different card. If the problem persists, please contact your card issuer.
  • Your name and billing address details must match the cardholder address details held by your card issuer.
  • If, for any reason, there is a problem with payment from your credit or debit card after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to deliver your order.

Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. The reasons for this may be due to:

  • - The item being out of stock or no longer available
  • - Your payment being declined
  • - A technical error

You will not be charged for the item(s). Depending on your method of payment, funds will be reimbursed within 1-5 working days.

Our online transactions are verified by either MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa to give you extra peace of mind. These services allow you to protect your credit or debit card with a password that you set up with your payment card issuer. When you reach the payment page and have confirmed your order, you will also be asked to enter your credit or debit card password. If you have not yet created a password with your payment card issuer, simply follow the on-screen instructions to set this up, you will only need to do this once. Please note your order will only be processed once we have received authorisation from your payment card issuer. Please contact your payment card issuer directly with any queries regarding your password.

We encrypt your payment card details using industry standard SSL technology to ensure they are kept completely safe and secure. As part of our policy to protect against the fraudulent use of credit and debit cards, we conduct security checks on all orders received. These checks can take various forms and may involve contacting you by telephone before we process your order. We also work with various credit rating and fraud prevention companies and we may share details of your order with them for the sole purpose of detecting and preventing fraudulent use of cards.

My Order

We always recommend taking note of your Order Reference number when your order is initially placed. If you have not received your Order Confirmation email please check your junk or spam folders - they are automated emails so they tend to go straight to spam. If you have definitely not received it, please contact our Customer Service team.

After your order is placed, you will have a very limited time to cancel the order before it is delivered. Once it has been delivered, we are no longer able to cancel it for you. Please contact the Customer Service team immediately if you need to cancel an item. Please see our Returns Policy for information about returning an item once you have received it.

We aim to get your order delivered to you as quickly as possible, therefore we are unable to add items to an existing order once it has been placed. Please contact our Customer Service team by phone +353 1 903 8215 or email us at onlinecustomerservice@arnotts.ie for more details.
