How many items can I order?

We do not limit the number of items you buy; however if the total value of your shopping basket is very high, our bank may hold your transaction for our approval.

Are credit card transactions on www.drmartens.com/uk safe?

Absolutely! In fact, it's statistically safer to use your credit card over the internet than in a restaurant or department store. Dr Martens UK online store servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), this encrypts and protects the data you send to us over the internet.

What are my payment options?

We accept most major credit cards such as Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, and Delta. We can also accept PayPal payments.

Why would my card be declined if there were sufficient funds in my account?

In order to protect our customers from fraudulent transactions, we use a high security payment method.

There are a few reasons why your card may have been declined, some of those reasons are:

If you are still unsure as to why a payment cannot go through, please do not attempt to re submit your payment, as it will send multiple authorisation requests to your bank and place a hold on your funds. For further details, please contact our Customer Service Team and we will be happy to help.

  • Invalid Billing address - If the billing address entered differs from the address that your Bank has on record, this can cause the transaction to be declined. This includes, house number, postcode, street name. Please contact your your credit card company to check the address they have on file for AVS (Address Verifitcation System) purposes.
  • Invalid card number - Please check that your card number is correct, this should be entered with no spaces.
  • Invalid security code - This is the last 3 digits on the back of your card, please make sure that this is correct.
  • Invalid Issuing country – We are not able to take payments from countries that we do not ship to. Please make sure that you are using the correct card.
My PayPal Payment is showing as pending, does this mean I have been charged?

Don't worry, if you have pending payments in PayPal; no funds have been transferred to us and no payments are being held in your PayPal account. If the payments are showing the status "pending" then it is likely that the order has been rejected.

Please get in touch contact@drmartens.com and confirm the email address that your PayPal account is registered to, what country you are emailing from and also the PayPal Transaction ID. We can then raise this issue with PayPal to see if they can void the pending payment.

How do I place an order using PayPal?

PayPal is a safe and fast way to pay online and is one of the world's largest internet payment companies. Firstly, you will need to create a PayPal account, which you can do on the PayPal website.

PayPal eliminates the need for you to re enter your card details everytime you purchase from us.

You can then select PayPal as a payment method at the end of the checkout process and enter your PayPal account details. While the payment is processing, please do not refresh or exit the page as this could cause issues with the transaction.

My order was declined. Will I be charged for this order?

No. When you enter your card details to pay for your order, your bank will automatically deduct the money from your account. This could cause pending charges to show in your account, even though the order has been declined. These funds will be automatically returned back to your account, usually within 3 to 5 working days, but the exact timeframe does depend on your card issuer and Bank. This may take longer, depending on your banks policy.
