Placing Orders

It’s super easy, and no you do not have to create an account to checkout! Simply go to the product page you’d like to purchase, choose the size you’d like, and then click add to cart! Your cart will then pop up and you can either hit checkout or close it to continue shopping. It’s that simple.

If you have any issues ordering online please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help you. You can reach us through our online web chat, call our office on 01760 755296, or email customerservices@whaleofatimeclothing.com

Absolutely! We even have a gift box option at the checkout for an extra £1.70. If you choose not to add the gift box, our orders are shipped in a branded paper bag with the contents wrapped in branded tissue paper with the invoice inside our Whale Of A Time navy folder. Please note that we are unable to put large boxes (orders of a puffer jacket or 2 or more sweatshirts) inside a protective outer bag therefore the postage label will be stuck directly onto the box.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer hand written notes at this time, if you have left a note when you checked out your order this will be printed on the packing slip.

Go to our gift card page, choose the value of your gift cards (tip: if you can’t find the amount you're looking for, you can make it up using multiple gift cards). Once you’ve added your gift card to your basket, head to the checkout! Before you go any further, there are two ways you can gift your e-gift card:
1. Send it directly to their email inbox.
2. Send the e-gift card to your email and forward it to the recipient, OR print it off, and place it inside the card you are giving to the recipient.
So when you check out your gift card make sure to use the email address that you would like the gift card to be sent to. 

Once you’ve completed the checkout, we’ll send an email containing a code which you can use next time you checkout.
