With Shop Dorset you deal directly with our Retailers. This gives you a more personal experience, with the added reassurance that we at Shop Dorset monitor customer feedback on our retailers and aim to ensure customers are always happy with the offerings via our site.
You can enjoy browsing with a wide variety of Retailers across the length and breadth of our county, divided into different categories for your convenience on our site. A pleasant way to window shop without wearing out your shoe leather or your poor tootsies! While browsing, we hope you discover some great gifts for friends and family and some gems for yourself too!
With many of our Retailers, you can simply click into their own separate website which will open in a separate window (so you can keep browsing with Shop Dorset when you have explored their site). Most of these Retailers have their own online shops and those who don't offer online ordering clearly explain their stock range and ordering process on their own website pages.
Retailers who sell within Shop Dorset have a 'Collection' within the site that you can click through to in order to view their current product range for sale on the site. If you wish to purchase items from a Retailer with a collection on our site, please be aware you can only buy from one Retailer at a time. Choose which item(s) you wish to purchase from one of our Retailers, add your selected item(s) to your shopping basket and continue to their checkout in order to complete your purchase. It's that simple!
You can pay each of our Retailers directly, quickly and securely via Paypal using a credit or debit card or, if you have your own Paypal account, you can choose to pay by bank transfer. Whichever option you choose, Paypal will guide you through the process in a few simple steps. Once you have confirmed your payment, our Retailer will email you to confirm your purchase and then arrange postage of the item to you, so you can look forward to receiving your parcel with anticipation.
If you wish to ask any questions before you make a purchase, please contact any of our Retailers directly. They will be happy to advise you regarding a particular item, their collection or how they can help. All our Retailers offer a direct email address on their web pages for customers enquiries and usually a phone number if you'd prefer to talk.
If you have any feedback about any of our Retailers, please do get in touch. We do monitor our Retailers to ensure our customers have an pleasurable shopping experience. We'd love to hear from you, particularly if we can help.
