Order, Dispatch & Delivery
There are three ways you can place an order with us:
- Order online
- Request a catalogue and place your order by phone or email
- Visit us at one of the many UK and European trade shows we exhibit at.
Ordering online is easy. You will need to register with us - we require company details such as an invoice and delivery addresses, your email address and a password. As soon as you have completed registration you will have access to prices, minimum order quantities and stock availabilty.
All products must be ordered in multiples of the minimum quantity - this is usually 6 or 12. You will need to reach our minimum order value of £150 / $200 / €200 (ex VAT) before you can proceed to checkout.
New customers are required to pay for their first order on a pro-forma basis - you can pay online via debit or credit card, BACS or you can give us a call to make payment on +44 (0)207 346 0100. If you would prefer to speak to somebody in French please call +44 (0)207 346 0123.
At the moment we do not accept payments via Paypal, but this will be introduced in the coming months. We will make an announcement once the new method of payment is launched. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Our usual dispatch time is 2-4 days, however this does sometimes increase during busier periods. Please check our announcements page for up to date dispatch times.

Delivery outside of Europe
If you are outside of these areas you must arrange your own shipping.
We will ship to a registered shipping agent at the same cost as the UK/European shipping rates. If goods are being collected by an agent, shipping terms are assumed to be Ex-Works. If we are delivering to a registered shipping agent, shipping terms are assumed to be FCA - unless otherwise stated.
If you are based in the USA please visit our dedicated American website: www.sassandbelletrade.com. Orders to the USA attract a $400 minimum order value and a $40 handling fee which covers all shipping and duty.
We do not currently ship to Canada, but will do so soon.
Trade customers based in Japan
If you are based in Japan, please contact our Japanese distributor to place your order directly with them.
SHONAN INTERNATIONAL, 3F MINATO BLDG. 1-21-4, 105-0013 MINATO-KU, TOKYO, Japan

If we are unable to deliver an item/items and the total sum of the stock (excluding VAT) is less than £35, this backorder will automatically be closed.
All backordered items with a total sum greater than £35 (excluding VAT) will remain on order. These goods will either be added to your next order or sent, pending payment, once all items are collectively in stock.
No payment is taken for backordered items until the stock is ready for dispatch.
There will be no carriage charged on complete delivery of backorders to the UK mainland and reduced carriage charges to all other EU & UK postcodes.
