Payment options that we currently offer will be available at checkout.

If a payment method that you previously used is no longer at checkout, this is not an error – it means that we do not have it as an option now.

Always read the payment instruction emails we send each time you make a new order as sometimes this information, like bank details or a postal address, can change and we’ve experienced customers sending payments to old details they have on record for us and going through a hassle to claim it back – Please take the time to read!

We often get asked why we don’t accept PayPal and other options…

The short answer: We would if we could.

We are limited to the payment options we have because of the hostility businesses like ours face from financial institutions. Forget the fact that all of our products are legal and sold for an entirely legitimate purpose, there is still a stigma surrounding some of the products we sell (most likely microscopy spores).

But in saying that, we have even had PayPal hold all of our money for 12months for a website that sold gourmet mushroom kits and didn’t stock microscopy spores at all… Maybe they just don’t like mushrooms, who knows?

We decide what we sell and don’t though, not some clueless representative of Paypal, Stripe or any other payment provider who is adamant that our spore syringes are used to inject into an arm – not even kidding.

We face a constant battle to provide payment options on our website and due to the almost weekly emails from customers suggesting that we offer PayPal or card payments.. we thought it made sense to shed some light on the situation here!


BANK TRANSFER

Not currently available – See our blog post here for more info

CASH IN POST

Instructions will be sent to you by email after you place an order
We’ve been accepting cash payment for years and never had an issue!
If you do not live in the United Kingdom and want to make payment by sending cash in the post, we do prefer that you convert your cash into GBP (Pounds Sterling) before sending.
But, we will accept other currencies, as long as you ensure you’ve calculated the correct currency converstion to match your order total and add 10% on to cover our fees of converting back into GBP here.

COINBASE COMMERCE

Pay using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and more
You will be taken through the payment process directly by Coinbase Commerce at checkout
You don’t need to use a Coinbase account to send your payment – you can send using any cryptocurrency wallet provider!

We have a guide on how to buy and use cryptocurrency here

IMPORTANT

Make sure you do not exit the payment process as the wallet address will change for each transaction.

If you do cancel and exit, please don’t send your payment to the wallet address previously provided as that was a specific address for accepting that payment.

It is not our own wallet address and if you send to it, your payment will not be applied to your order and we will not receive it.

If you have to exit the payment process at all, you will need to make a new order and follow the Coinbase Commerce process fully until you receive confirmation from them.
