(b)          Products will be listed with ‘Add to basket’ or ‘Browse’. Where ‘Add to basket’ is listed you can order online.

(c)           Once you have added all your purchases to your basket, you can click on your basket to review your items. You will have the option to update quantities or delete items at this stage. When you are satisfied with your items you can press ‘Checkout’. This will give you the option to ‘Log in’ (if you are previously registered on the Site), ‘Register’ or ‘Guest Check out’.
