Payment Options

Arkham's Botanical - Payment optionsWe realise that, dependent on your location, it’s not always easy to make online purchases without incurring annoying extra fees! With this in mind…

Arkham’s Botanical currently accepts payment via BACS (bank transfer – 2.5% off if you pay using this), Cash (£), Cheque (£), PayPal and TransferWise (best rates for international bank transfers). We’re always looking at popular new payment gateways, so expect more options to come. Further, free shipping is available for many of our UK, EU and US orders too – happy growing!

TransferWise Varies Yes Yes TransferWise is a great service we’ve been using to make international payments for a while now, with much better rates than most similar services – which often includes PayPal and Stripe. Simply set up a TransferWise account and then send funds to the recipient’s bank account for minimal cost (e.g. £1,000 can be sent to Australia for only £4.60). TransferWise keep accounts all around the globe, so reduce charges by paying the recipient from their own country’s banking system, which saves you money!

We also offer free shipping on many EU, UK & US orders!
