Frequently Asked Questions
Do you sell wholesale?
On the whole our prices are very keen, so large discounts for wholesale are difficult. We do however offer many lines with a wholesale pack price or a quantity discount. To see these prices you will need to look at the detailed product description by clicking on the product. If different pack sizes are available you will see buttons to choose your pack size. Click on the pack size you wold like to purchase and press 'buy now' to add the item to your shopping basket. If quantity discounts are available, you will see a table to show you the price per item when buying different quantities. Enter the quantity you wish to purchase and click 'buy now' to add the item to your shopping basket. If you would like to buy a bulk amount of any of the lines that are not shown as having a wholesale pack price or quantity discount, then do feel free to contact us for a price.
Do you have a catalogue?
Our catalogue is all online at www.beadsdirect.co.uk. Because our product range is very dynamic and growing daily, it makes having a hard copy catalogue inappropriate; it would not allow us to give our customers the very best service and price we can. If you do not want to order online you can send a cheque, including £2.29 P & P, or phone your order through to 01509 218028 and pay by card.
How can I see what new products have been added recently?
The most recent products are listed at the bottom of the homepage. There is also a box on the right hand side giving you a snapshot of new things. If you click on the new products tab it will come up with the full list, newest first from which you can click on the items, view and buy.
Do prices include VAT?
All prices shown are inclusive of VAT at 20% which is charged on all EU orders. If you are buying outside of Europe the site will automatically deduct 20% from your order.
How do seed bead sizes work and how many will I get?
Rocailles are round seed beads. They are commonly sold in size 15 (smallest) to size 3 (largest). When working out how many beads you need for a project is is useful to know how many beads you will roughly get per gram so you can times this by the number of grams in a tube or pack. Please see the table below:
