Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve got a question about one of our products, an order, payment, delivery or return, you should be able to find the answer below.
Firstly, find the product you would like to purchase using the Search box or browsing through our categories. Then on the product page, select your size (if you can't select your size then unfortunately we don't have any stock available) and click "Add to Basket", your browser will refresh and the shopping trolley at the top right will show your items. Either click "Checkout" or continue browsing to add more items to your shopping basket. If you decide to continue, add any other items you wish to purchase and when you're finished click on the “Checkout” displayed on the top right. Now proceed to checkout by entering your personal details and payment information. Once complete you will be issued with an order number and an order confirmation will be emailed to you. Please note: If you added your items to your basket on an earlier visit to our website and the sizes you require are no longer available, the "'proceed to payment" button will not be visible and you will not be able to proceed through checkout. Please empty your basket and start your purchase again.
You can, but please be quick! Most orders placed before 2pm are likely to be picked and packed the same working day and once your order has reached a certain point within the dispatch process, we are unable to make any changes to it. Even if you ask us in time, we may not have the size or colour you want in stock. We can only make changes that do not increase the value of your order.
Unfortunately not, as once your payment has been processed we are unable to change this. If you require an additional item, you would need to place a new order. If you place a second order the same day and contact us to let us know both order numbers, we will do our best to ensure they are dispatched together so that we can refund you any additional postage costs incurred.
You can, but again, please be quick! All orders placed before 3pm are likely to be picked and packed the same working day and once your order has reached a certain point within the dispatch process, we are unable to stop it from being dispatched. Please email or phone as soon as you can so we can try to help you.
You need to place your order online at Trainershop.com. We are currently unable to accept orders over the phone due to security restrictions.
Sorry, not at the moment. All orders need to be placed online for security. If you are having any difficulty placing an order online by all means give us a call and a member of our team will do their best to help you.
You can pay with any of the following credit and debit cards online: Maestro/UK Maestro MasterCard Visa Visa Debit/Delta Visa Electron
Yes, we accept PayPal on Trainershop.com; however please note that if the delivery address on your order is not a confirmed address on your PayPal account then we will email your PayPal registered email address for confirmation. We will need to receive a reply to this email before your order is dispatched. Please reply to any emails as soon as possible as we will not be liable for any delay in delivery as a result of your failure to reply.
When you pay using PayPal, we receive a notification from PayPal to advise us if the delivery address provided is confirmed on your PayPal account. If they advise us that the address provided is unconfirmed, we need to receive confirmation from you in writing to allow us to send your order. Simply reply to the email we send you to confirm that the delivery address is correct, and we'll dispatch your order as soon as we can. If we don't get a reply to the email within 7 days, unfortunately we'll have to cancel your order and process a full refund. When you pay using your credit/debit card, various checks are carried out to protect your card from fraudulent activity. The most common check is to ensure that your billing address accurately matches that held by the card issuing bank. If some of the details match, but not all, we will email the email address provided to ask you to confirm. If none of the details match, then your order will simply be cancelled and refunded and you will receive an email to confirm this.
Payment goes out of your account at the time you place your order. We will not process your order until payment has been received.
Please contact us if you think this is the case, however in most circumstances we have not charged you and it is what is known as a "shadow transaction" showing on your account. When you attempt to confirm and pay we send an authorisation to your bank/card issuer and they reserve the funds by placing a shadow transaction on your account. This ensures that you cannot spend this money elsewhere. If the payment fails or you abandon the payment, we will not request these funds and so your bank will release them back to you. This shadow transaction may remain on your account for up to 6 days and unfortunately this is completely out of our control.
Please contact us if you think this is the case, however in most circumstances we have only charged you once and the second transaction showing on your account is what is known as a "shadow transaction". When you attempt to confirm and pay we send an authorisation to your bank/card issuer and they reserve the funds by placing a shadow transaction on your account. This ensures that you cannot spend this money elsewhere. If the payment fails or you abandon the payment, we will not request these funds and so your bank will release them back to you. This shadow transaction may remain on your account for up to 6 days and unfortunately this is completely out of our control.
Currently we only accept payment in UK sterling.

If there’s a price difference between what you purchased originally and the exchange product, we’ll either refund the difference or give you a phone call to take the additional payment. Our stock changes quickly and once it’s gone, it’s gone, so please check on-line or with customer services to see if your required exchange item is available.
