Is it safe to use my credit/debit card?

Ordinarily, a secure connection is displayed as a small padlock in the status bar at the bottom of the browser. However for technical reasons, Arsenal Direct is displayed within a 'Frame' and therefore the usual padlock is not visible. To confirm you have a secure connection during payment, right click the mouse; click on 'properties' and view the url. The url will have a path beginning "https://..." - the 's' denotes a secure connection. Please be assured that using your debit/credit card online is safe and your credit card details will remain secure and uncompromised.

How do I check my order status?

You can check your order status by clicking on 'My Account' and then clicking on 'Track/View my order history’. Your order status will be in one of two stages, ‘In Progress' means your order is being processed and 'In Despatch' means your order is in our warehouse and will be despatched within the time guidelines stated or it has been despatched from our warehouse.

Taxes and Duty?

Any customs or import duties are levied once the package reaches its destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you may want to contact your local customs office for further information before ordering.

What personalised products are available?

You can either have a shirt printed with a player's name and number or you can have your own name and number. Please make sure you have ordered the correct size as no printed garments i.e. shirts, shorts, toddler or infant kits will be exchanged unless faulty. Please also make sure for personalised shirts that you have spelt the name correctly. If you are unsure we recommend that you do not have items printed. We do not print patches or short numbers on infant kits. If a player subsequently leaves the club or his squad number changes during his career at Arsenal we are unable to offer an exchange or refund for the printed shirt.

How and when will my order arrive?

All UK parcels are sent by a signature service (All UK parcels must be signed for: it is the customer's responsibility to make themselves available for delivery. Subsequently if parcels have to be re-sent an additional postage fee may be incurred). We aim to despatch all orders within 5 working days to the UK and 15 working days to Europe and the Rest of World. Shirt printing may take an extra 5 working days for all destinations. It is our policy to despatch items ordered in the shortest possible time, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays in transit. ALL Europe/Rest of World orders over 2kg’s will be sent by courier. Any parcels weighing less than 2kg's, sent to a destination that we deem at risk of losing the parcel, will be sent by courier.
On Europe/Rest of World orders the customer is liable to pay any import duty and any other taxes that may be requested.
