Do you have a Catalogue?
All of our products are available to view and to order online, with live stock levels too! Unfortunately we do not currently have a hard copy catalogue.

Mainland UK Charges: Order under Â£200 (exVAT) = Â£6.95 (exVAT) (Min Order Â£100 exVAT). Order over Â£200 (exVAT) = FREE (Mainland UK) International delivery rates are calculated on a âper cartonâ basis, and once you have submitted your order, we will notify you if your order requires more/less cartons than you have selected.

Please refer to our Delivery Information page for full information about delivery charges, UK postcode exclusions, surcharges and international delivery charges.
Do You DropShip?
We currently do not offer a drop shipping service.
Can I Use Your Product Images?
Yes, no problem as long as the image you want is for a product you have purchased from Amalfi Imports. We do not allow and strongly advise against using our images to pre-sell products before you have purchased them. This can cause significant problems for customers if we are subsequently unable to provide the product which has been presold. If you do want to copy an image please click on the appropriate image and click enlarge. Then right click and save the image to your computer file directory.
How can I change quantities or cancel an item from my order?
Once you have submitted your order, we may be able to amend/cancel products provided that you contact us before your order has been processed. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I Add Items To My Order?
Firstly, please contact us on 01474853999 to find out whether it is too late to add any more products onto your existing order. If your order has not yet been processed, then please place a separate new order for the additional items. Pay for it as usual, but please do two things. 1) Select the shipping option âWarehouse Pickupâ so that you are not charged a second shipping fee. 2) Leave us a note in the âOrder Commentsâ box explaining that you would like us to combine this with your existing order. We can then combine the two orders internally and dispatch as one.
I Canât Access My Basket!!
This is normally caused by âcookiesâ held on your PC â Please clear the âcookiesâ on your machine and then retry accessing your basket. If you still encounter problems then please telephone 01474853999 or email email@example.com and weâll be pleased to assist.
Will My Shopping Basket Save?
Your shopping basket may not automatically save itself. The best way to ensure that our website remembers what products youâve put into your basket over the past days, is to ensure that your computer/device has the setting âEnable Cookiesâ enabled. This is short-term computer memory and should allow your basket to be remembered. You will find, however, that your basket cannot be remembered or saved across different devices. So, if you add products to your basket on a mobile device, this will not save and be viewable when logging in on another computer/laptop/device. One possible solution is to use our âWish Listâ feature. Some customers like to add interesting products to their âWish Listâ (available to add to on each product page), which DOES save across devices. Then, when youâre ready to place your order, youâll be able to open your wish list and add the desired products to your shopping basket from here, and then checkout.
How can I find a product?
To find any product either refer to the appropriate category on the left navigation, or type the product name or code into search box at top of website to locate.
When Will A Product Be Back In Stock?
We generally have quite a fast turnover of stock, and it can sometimes be difficult to know exactly when or if a product may be returning to stock. However, if there is a particular product you are interested in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our hardest to provide more information. If you would like an automatic notification as soon as a product becomes available again, youâll need to click the big green button on the productâs page which says âEmail Me When In Stockâ. Click this button and submit your email address. Our system will email you automatically the second it arrives!
We donât carry over back order items as a general rule. Sometimes, if an item is out of stock and there is an imminent delivery of that product then with your consent we may hold an order over until that product arrives in the warehouse. In such circumstances, you will have been made aware and agreed to this via customer services.
Do The Prices Include VAT/Tax?
All prices displayed on our website exclude VAT (VAT at the Prevailing UK Rate will be added on top). This includes both product prices and shipping charges. If you are based outside of the UK Tax region and have a valid EU VAT Number, you will not be required to pay VAT. If you are based outside of the EU Tax Zone, you will also not be required to pay VAT.
A Product Says â3 Assortedâ
Does This Mean The Price is For 3? All products on our website (unless specifically stated otherwise) are priced individually. Where a product is sold in an assortment, you will need to order in multiples of the assortment quantity to receive equal amounts of each design (stock availability permitting). For example: A product is â3 Assortedâ. If you order x3 or x6, you will receive x3 or x6 individual pieces (x1 or x2 of each design). If you order less than the assortment quantity (ie: x1) we will supply a randomly chosen design from the choice of 3. Where a product is described as a âSetâ, the price displayed is for all the pieces in the set.
We accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and Delta as well as PayPal and via BACS. Please contactÂ email@example.comÂ for bank details if BACS service is required. You can also pay by email link (where applicable). During the checkout process you may choose any of our current payment options and continue to place your order. If paying by PayPal you enter the payment details and click âCheckout by PayPalâ, which is the yellow button at the bottom of your shopping basket page. Please note that we will not ship your order until we receive full payment from you.
Click and Collect Orders
If you wish, you can place your order online and then collect in person from our warehouse. Once placed, weâll contact you as soon as itâs ready to be collected. If you have a collection date/time in mind, please leave us a note in the âOrder Commentsâ box to request this. If weâre not able to prepare your order in this timeframe, weâll let you know. Please note that this type of order must be fully paid and released online before collection.
Can I Order Over The Phone?
Sorry but at present we cannot accept telephone orders.
Iâm having difficulty paying / my credit card wonât be accepted!
If you are having difficulty paying for your order, or receive an error message at checkout, please call us on 01474853999 and we will be happy to help make sure your order has gone through successfully!
Invoicing & Payments Do You Offer 30day Accounts?
Unfortunately not at the moment. Currently we are unable to offer payment terms of 30 days, and all orders must be paid for pro-forma (at the time of ordering).
I need a copy of my receipt/invoice.
Invoices are sent by email when your order is dispatched â If you do not receive one please look in your âJunk Folderâ first as sometimes they are delivered there (depending on your PC default). If after checking you still require a copy then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email a copy to you.
When will my Debit/Credit Card be charged?
When you place and pay for your order you either pay by debit/credit card or PayPal. If paying by debit/credit card the total amount of your order is âAllocatedâ by the bank/card company and is effectively put on hold. When we process the order we then ask the bank to âAuthoriseâ or âcollectâ the final invoice amount from that. Therefore if an item is out of stock we will not charge you for it and only the goods dispatched get charged for. If you pay via PayPal then the total order value is collected immediately. If an item is then found to be out of stock, we normally make any refund at the end of the day that the order is dispatched.
I Have a Question About My Charges?
First please check your order and subsequent invoice against your bank and financial records. You may find that your initial sales order total is different to that invoiced. This will be due to possible out of stock items. The final invoice is what you will have been charged. Please refer to âWhen will my Debit/Credit card be chargedâ question.
We accept all major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and Delta as well as PayPal and via BACS. Please contact email@example.com for bank details if BACS service is required. You can also pay by email link (where applicable). During the checkout process you may choose any of our current payment options and continue to place your order. If paying by PayPal you enter the payment details and click âCheckout by PayPalâ, which is the yellow button at the bottom of your shopping basket page. Please note that we will not ship your order until we receive full payment from you.
Do I Have To Pay VAT?
All UK customers will be required to pay VAT. Unless we have a bona fide EU VAT number or you are located outside of the EU then unfortunately yes you will be required to pay VAT at the prevailing UK rate.
Are My Card Details Protected?
Yes. This website is protected with SSL (secure socket layer) encryption, the highest standard in Internet security. Please see Big Commerce SSL Certificate logo at bottom of page. Stored card details are protected at this security level as part of our websiteâs automatic protocol. Whilst the data is stored securely, it is also fully encrypted, so we never have access to your full card details, only the last 4 digits of your card number.
Pricing & Discounts
Competitive Price Guarantee
It is our commitment to provide you with the best value, at the best price, and so we guarantee that our prices will be continually reviewed to ensure that we are priced as low and competitively as possible. We value your business and strive to keep our prices low, and SAVE you money! If you find one of our prices to be significantly higher than elsewhere, please do let us know. We may not be able to match it on this occasion, but we are always looking for feedback and will review our pricing structures as and when necessary.
We are pleased to offer bulk discounts on most of our products. The bulk discount shown is for normal multiples of that product i.e. inner quantity, and cannot be further discounted unless a considerably larger volume of that product is required. In this case please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the product code and the desired quantity (full carton quantities or higher). To obtain the advertised Bulk Price, you will need to click on the link next to the advertised price which says âCLICK HERE TO ORDERâ. This will take you to another page with the lower price and minimum quantity, at which point you may add the product to your basket at the lower price. Products ordered in bulk quantities at the single price are not picked up by our system and you will be charged the higher price automatically if the above steps are not followed.

Please be rest assured that we do not charge for items which are not dispatched. Please check the paper copy delivery note that came with your parcel(s). This delivery note is a carbon-copy of your final invoice, and so if the item is not on your delivery note, then you will not have been charged it.

Please do look carefully within the carton as sometimes smaller items can get hidden by or within packaging! This is more common than you might think.
