The correct prices will only be displayed online if your registration is connected to the relevant account. If the prices you see once logged in are not as expected please contact use to amend your account link.



You can choose how to pay for orders - you can open an account, pay by credit/debit card or via PayPal (if ordering online).

We accept the following methods of payment:



NB. Online orders are accepted on a 30 day invoice payment option. However, if during processing of your order we find that the company account details provided are not already established with Alpha Laboratories and no credit status has been verified, we reserve the right to request credit card payment before despatch of goods. We will contact you if this is the case.



If you need to return goods for whatever reason, please contact Customer Services to obtain a Returned Goods Authorisation Number (RGAN). Clearly mark the RGAN on the package and we will arrange collection. Please do not return goods to us directly as we cannot take responsibility for items not collected by us. A 12% re-stocking charge may apply unless the return is due to our error.

Please note that in some cases it may not be possible to accept returned goods. For more information on our returns policy please see our Terms & Conditions
