Generally, credit and debit card are not charged until we either ship the item(s) to you or confirm store availability (at which time you will be charged only for the goods we have actually shipped along with any appropriate taxes or shipping charges). However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit or debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. When paying for a preorder with a debit card you will be charged at the time you place your preorder. Please contact your credit card issuer for more information.

Three-Payment Option

We are proud to offer the convenience of three easy payments when purchasing from Seaway China. The total price of your order will be divided into three installments (one per month scheduled for the recurring day of the month on which you placed your order) and billed monthly with the first payment due on the day the order was placed. Once your first payment is received, we will ship your order to you via the shipping method you select and will continue to bill your selected method of payment until the three-payment plan expires. If paying by incremental personal checks, please date your checks to correspond with the payment plan established with your Royal Doulton Specialist. The three-payment plan is interest free and is offered as a convenience to you. It is our pleasure to provide this payment option as a courtesy to all our collectors. Please speak with your Royal Doulton Specialist to coordinate payment when placing an order with Seaway China. PLEASE NOTE: Our three-payment plan is currently NOT AVAILABLE for orders paid via PayPal or Google Checkout. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any Inconvenience
