The first thing to remember is that it can take up to an hour to receive a confirmation e-mail from us. If an hour has passed then the most likely explanation for this is that the Prickly Pear order confirmation e-mail has been filtered out by a SPAM filter. Check your SPAM e-mails for a mail from Prickly Pear.
If there is no e-mail from us in your SPAM then feel free to contact us via the Prickly Pear contact form or phone us on the number at the bottom of this page. Be sure to have your order number handy as it speeds up the process of finding your order. Don't worry if you don't have it as we can still find your order using your post code or your name.
We work very hard at maintaining accurate stock levels to avoid customer disappointment. We also try to ensure that we always have stock available to meet customer demand. Sometimes though we simply cannot meet the demand for a product. When this happens please be assured that we are working hard in the background trying to produce additional product to keep our customers happy.
When we do run out of stock we will put a note on the product's web page with an estimated arrival date for additional stock, if one is known. We are also working on introducing a button on the page that you can use in order to leave us your e-mail address and we will contact you when the stock arrives. In the meantime please feel free to use the Prickly Pear contact page and let us know the product in which you are interested. As soon as the stock arrives we will e-mail you to let you know.
