Flexible Payments Options


FlexiPay is an interest-free way of spreading the cost of an order over a monthly period. If there is a special cover you have had your eye on for a while, a few covers, or maybe even a collection, we can reserve it for you and you can pay off the order in regular instalments. FlexiPay is completely interest-free: you do not pay any extra to have your covers reserved. The scheme is run by our lovely and very efficient Sarah so you know that you will be well looked after! Lots of collectors love their hobby but find the cost a lot to bear sometimes. We created FlexiPay so that everyone could have the chance of owning that special item that they have always wanted. It is also a good way of reserving a limited edition cover that you do not want to miss out on.

What If Your Order Isn’t Ready To Send?

If any items are in production when you placed your order, there is a small risk involved. Producing covers is a risky business and we can never be sure when the covers will be ready. and sometimes on the rare occasion may not happen at all

If the goods are not ready to send when you have completed payments, this is what will happen:

  1. We will contact you to let you know
  2. We will arrange for the items to be sent to you as soon as they arrive
  3. We will keep you updated if the delay continues

Missed payments or declined cards

If you miss a monthly payment, this is what will happen:
1. We will contact you to resolve this issue i.e. update new card details
2. If we do not hear back from you, we will automatically add the missed payment to the end of your agreed instalment plan. This will mean your order will be increased by an extra month

If you miss a second payment, this is what will happen:

1. We will contact you giving a 2 week deadline for you to contact us
2. If we do not hear back from you in this time, we will cancel your Flexi-Pay order. We will refund payments received to your account with us


Goods remain the property of Internet Stamps Group Limited (the parent company of Buckingham Covers) until payment is received in full.
