FAQ

1) What percentage of proceeds from this shop go to Prostate Cancer UK?

100% of proceeds come to Prostate Cancer UK for all items.

2) How do I know my order has been successful?

We’ll send you an email to confirm that your order has been placed.

We’ll then email you to let you know that your order has been sent out to you. Whilst you should normally receive your order within a week, please do allow up to 14 days.

We won’t take any payment from your debit or credit card until we have sent your order for delivery.

3) Can I choose a different delivery address?

Yes. You'll be offered this option during the payment and shipping process.


4) I'm having trouble logging in. Help?

The Prostate Cancer UK Shop is an entirely self-contained system within the Prostate Cancer UK website and has a separate access system. This means your username and password for other parts of the Prostate Cancer UK website won't work here unless you've created a Shop account with the same details. We're sorry about this inconvenience and suggest that, for simplicity, you simply choose the same username and password for the Shop as you use for the rest of the Prostate Cancer UK site.

If this isn't the problem and you've simply forgotten your Shop password, you can choose to reset your password yourself.

And if you're completely stuck, do just email us at shop@prostatecanceruk.org and we'll be pleased to help.


5) Can I get a discount for bulk purchase?

Unless you're talking about thousands of items, then we're really sorry, but no. 

The reason for this is that our pricing is based on the expectation of different order sizes - depending on the combination of items, packing requirements, shipping costs and so on, there are some orders on which we make very, very little. As we're trying to raise money for our vital work supporting people affected by prostate cancer, it's unlikely to be in the interest of the people we're supporting to reduce the profit. We hope you understand.


6) Will you send me products free so I can sell them and raise money for you?

Thanks so much for your interest in raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, we're delighted! Although the Shop can't provide products free, Prostate Cancer UK does provide fundraisers with items such as pin badges that can be sold to raise money for us. Just contact us here, email us at supportercare@prostatecanceruk.org, or ring us on 0800 082 1616.


7) What is your pricing policy?

It's our aim to make a profit on what we sell so that we can increase the support Prostate Cancer UK gives to people affected by prostate cancer. Nearly all items we sell are exclusive to Prostate Cancer UK but at the volumes of stock we buy, we're unable to get items at the very low cost the big retailers can, so our pricing certainly isn't as competitive as theirs. 

However, we do try to ensure that the items are value for money - we're very aware that as you can't examine items in person you're having to take a leap of faith to purchase from us, so we try to ensure you won't be disappointed and will be really pleased by your purchase.

Postage and packing is priced so that we break even, and out of this cost we pay for postage, packing and packaging. 


8) Why don't you sell ....?

If you have an idea about something we could sell, please contact us at shop@prostatecanceruk.org! It may be that there's a reason we're not selling it, or it could be that your idea is really helpful. Please do email us.


9) Will you pass on my details to other charities or companies?

No, Prostate Cancer UK never shares or sells contact information to other charities or companies. When you check out, you will be asked how you would like to be contacted in future by both Prostate Cancer UK and Prostate Cancer Trading Ltd. We will always comply with and respect your wishes.
