|Making A Purchase|
To order products from the Homebits website, simply follow these steps:
Select the product(s) you wish to purchase, selecting the available options as necessary, the quantity you require, then click on the "Buy Now" button. You will then be shown a new page (shopping cart), which will show the item(s) you have selected. If you continue shopping you will then be taken back to the item that you last viewed.
You can continue to search the Homebits site for further goods that you may wish to purchase and add these to your basket (you may add as many products as you wish before visiting the checkout). The total number of items and value of your basket (excluding delivery) will be displayed at all times and by clicking "View Basket", you will be able to amend any selected item(s). If any item(s) appear either priced £0.00 or described as "Drop Down" this is a site error and we would ask you to contact us for the correct price as Homebits does not sell any item(s) for £0.00.
When you have finished shopping click the "Checkout" button where you will be taken to your shopping cart which will show you the products that you have selected to order. If anything is incorrect, press "Cancel" and you will be taken back to the item that you last viewed and by clicking "View Basket" you will be able to make any changes.
If all details are correct, click on "Next" and fill in the information requested, at this point delivery charges (if applicable) will be shown. Once completed, you will then be taken to the Global Iris site which uses Security from Verified by Visa and MasterCard® SecureCode for internet transactions who will process your payment. After this you will be presented with a receipt page confirming your Homebits order and transaction for your records. If you require a confirmation e-mail, please ensure that you click to return to our site as our system uses this final action to generate this.
As we do not take payment for your purchase(s) until the goods are shipped or part shipped, please note that the date on your credit card statement for your transaction may not be the same as that shown on your e-mail confirmation. The transaction on your credit card statement will be shown as "IT-FITZ.com" and not Homebits.
