1. What Payment methods can I use to pay my order at WKF Store?
You can use any of the payment methods listed below to pay for your order. Your details are safe with us as we take security very seriously.
We take fraud very seriously so all credit and debit card holders are subject to validation and authorization by both us and the card issuer.

If your card is authorized, payment will be taken immediately, and you will receive an email confirming that your order has been successful.
If your card is not authorized, payment will not be taken, and we'll email to let you know that your bank or card issuer wouldn't authorize the payment.
3. What can I do if the payment for my order at WKF Store is declined?
- Check the card details on your WKF account to make sure the information is correct, e.g. the expiry date, card type or your billing address.
- Make sure you enter the security code correctly - that's the three digit number on the back of your card.
- Your card issuer may have declined your payment - as they don't tell us the reason for this, it's best to check with them.
- If you've checked all of the above, try paying with another card.
If you've tried all these and are still having problems, contact our Customer Care Team with as many details as you can about the issue - including any error messages you receive and we'll try to resolve it as soon as we can.
We're unable to replace your order for you or amend the details to a new card. If you still wish to receive your items, you'll need to place a new order with us.
PAYMENTS, PROMOS & GIFT VOUCHERS
1. I’ve been overcharged for my order at WKF Store, what should I do?
We're sorry if you've been charged more than you were expecting for your order.
There are a couple of reasons why it may appear you've been charged more than you were expecting.
Step 1: Check your currency
We charge you in the currency that is selected at the checkout when you place your order. If your local currency is different to the currency you selected at the checkout then your bank will convert the amount using their exchange rate.
Step 2: Check your promo code
If you've used a promo code on your order, the discount may not apply to all of the items in your basket. There are certain exclusions with some promo codes and you can find these in the terms and conditions that would have been included when you received the code.
Step 3: Contact us
If you still believe you've been overcharged for you order, then please contact us by using the options at the bottom of this page and we'll look into it further for you.
2. What is Sales Tax?
Sales Tax is charged on items shipped to your country.
You won't have to pay Sales Tax on Gift Vouchers or Premier Delivery but you may have to pay Sales Tax on any shipping charges you pay.
How much is sales tax?
Sales tax is calculated on the total of your order, after discount. The amount of tax charged to your order depends on your shipping address. The tax is calculated based on state rates and the items you are purchasing. We'll always show you how much Sales Tax you'll be charged when you go to checkout.
The Sales Tax shown at checkout will be for your default address so this may change if you change your shipping address.
What happens if I return my order?
If you return your item for a refund the Sales Tax will also be refunded back to your original payment method.
3. How can I get a promo code to use against an order?
We'd suggest that you check out the website, as we often have really great promos running that you can benefit from.
If it's a promo code that you're after - we send out promo codes to our customers in our newsletters. Sometimes you'll spot a code on Instagram or Facebook or the banner on our website too - keep your eyes peeled.
4. What currencies can I use to place an order?
You can pay in euros, Australian dollars, British pounds, Canadian dollars, Danish krones, Hong Kong dollars, Japanese yens, New Zealand dollars, Singapore dollars and US dollars.
When you come to pay for your order, you'll be charged in the currency you have selected.
5. When will I be charged for my order at WKF store?
If your card is authorised, payment will be taken immediately, and you will receive an email confirming that your order has been successful.
If your card is not authorised, payment will not be taken, and we'll email to let you know your bank or card issuer wouldn't authorise the payment.
Please remember that even if a payment isn't authorised, it may look like ASOS has still taken the money as some card issuers may still reserve the money, for a short period of time.
