What is a 'fast buy' product?
A product with a 'fast buy' delivery option means that the item is stocked at our warehouse and should be with you within 3 working days. Please note that some 'fast buy' products share the same page as 'direct from our supplier' products on a longer lead time, so please ensure you double check the lead time information at the top each product page before you place your order.
What is a 'direct from our supplier' product?
A product with a 'direct from our supplier' delivery option means that the item is not stocked at our warehouse, but comes directly from our suppliers to you. The lead time of these products varies greatly depending on the supplier, so please ensure you double check the lead time information at the top each product page before you place your order.
What is a 'design your own' product?
A product with a 'design your own' delivery option means that you have the flexibility to fully customise your product to suit your needs. The lead time of these products varies greatly depending on the supplier and the customisations you make, so please ensure you double check the lead time information at the top each product page after choosing your options before you place your order.

How does Posturite secure my personal and card details?

PAYMENTS ARE SECURELY PROCESSED BY OUR TRUSTED THIRD PARTY STRIPE, WHO HANDLE TRANSACTIONS FOR OVER ONE MILLION BUSINESSES GLOBALLY. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY DIRECT ACCESS TO YOUR CARD DETAILS.
What is a purchase order number?
Purchase Order Numbers allow you to complete purchases without providing card details.
In many organisations a Purchase Order Number request has to be made before an order can be placed. By using a Purchase Order Number, everyone involved in the purchasing process can track the order by referring to the unique number as a standard reference.
Please check with your organisation whether they use Purchase Order Numbers before placing the order. We have no way of verifying every unique number, so a wrongly provided number will not allow us to complete your order.

You are also responsible for providing any information required by customs to ensure the goods are cleared.
Posturite cannot be held responsible should local customs authorities wish to confiscate any items or charge any import duty, and we cannot be held accountable for delays in customs clearance.
