Terms & Conditions

Your order is subject to the following terms and conditions (unless you have made special arrangements directly with us). These may change from time to time.

1.Your order

We will do our best to fulfill your order but cannot guarantee to do so. Our delivery dates are only estimates. No order is accepted by us unless and until confirmed by us in writing (either by invoice submitted with goods delivered, email or otherwise).

2. Price

Raintree VAT registration number is GB940616826. Prices are as stated from time to time on this Website and are subject to change without notice. Post and packing charges are also indicated separately on the paper invoice you will receive with the goods.

United Kingdom based customers:
The price stated on our Website is inclusive of any applicable value added or other sales tax, however the breakdown of any applicable value added tax (VAT) payable with your order is indicated on the paper invoice you will receive with the goods.

Other customers:
VAT, where it is legally appropriate for us to do so, will be applied to your order and will appear on the paper invoice. VAT will be payable at the applicable rate and may vary from country to country.

3. Payment

All orders placed via the Raintree website will need to be paid via invoice within 30 days. The goods remain our property until then. 

4. Title and Risk

If your order is for delivery outside the UK and the Republic of Ireland, you are solely responsible for the goods from the time they leave our premises and for the importation of those goods into the country of delivery (including arranging for any necessary legal consents and payment of duties or taxes), and we accept no responsibility for any claims arising from such importation.

If your order is for delivery inside the UK and the Republic of Ireland, the risk of loss and/or damage (but not title) to goods supplied by us shall pass to you when they are delivered to you or your nominee and we shall not be liable for the safety of the goods thereafter.

Ownership of all goods shall remain vested in us (and we reserve the right to dispose of the goods) until we have received payment in full of all debts you owe to us.

5. Paperback and Hardback versions of books

Raintree reserves the right to provide a paperback version where no hardback is available, and that the customer will pay the paperback price in this scenario.

If a paperback version is ordered, but is not available, the customer will receive the hardback version at the paperback price.

6. Cancellation and Returns

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you have a right to cancel your contract. In the case of physical product, simply return it to us in its original condition within 42 days from the date of purchase (but no later) and, at your option, we will issue a full refund for the price of the item or supply you with a new one. If the return is the result of our error (including faulty or damaged goods), we will also refund the postage (where applicable). Please enclose either (i) a copy of the paper invoice enclosed with the delivery, or (ii) a print of the online digital receipt. The package should be securely wrapped and sent to

7. Credit Account Customers:

(a) The Company may set and vary credit limits for any account and may refuse to supply any order which causes the account to exceed the current credit limit. The Company may also withhold supplies if the customer is in breach of these terms and conditions or fails to make any payment by the due date. (b) Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the customer shall pay the total amount stated on the invoice by the date for payment stated on the invoice. Payment shall be in pounds sterling drawn on a bank based in the UK. The Company may charge interest on overdue payments at the rate of 1% above National Westminster Bank's base lending rate from time to time and shall be entitled to recover from the customer all expenses (including legal costs) incurred in enforcing payment.
