A sad fact of shopping

 

Payment•A sad fact of shopping [Moonbeams Shop:Payment]

One you’ve selected your cards, gifts or souvenirs, you just have to pay…

We are delighted to receive payment in good old-fashioned cash - in local money (SHP), Sterling (GBP) and even in Falkland Island coins (but NOT notes).

The amount you have to pay will be given to you, and you can settle it in any combination of the above. Around 85% of our payments are in cash because St Helena is still, largely, a cash-based society.

And if you have received a Moonbeams Gift Voucher please present this with the balance of your payment.

However, we do accept payment in other ways…

Bank of St Helena Cheques

BoSH Cheque [Moonbeams Shop:Payment]

Invoice

If you are a local business, Government department or parastatal, or a Registered Charity, we can invoice you for direct payment into our bank account{1}.

Invoices are normally issued on the day the goods or services are supplied, and are payable immediately and in any case within seven days of issue.

We make a small charge for issuing invoices for small sales. Currently this charge is £1 for invoices of value below £10.

Account

If you are a local business, Government department or parastatal, or a Registered Charity, we can open an account for you. Items you purchase can be charged to your account, and an invoice will be sent to you just after the end of the month, for settlement into our bank account{1}.

Selected foreign currencies

We can always accept payment in the following selected foreign currencies:

…and very occasionaly in other currencies too, but only where Bank of St Helena agrees in advance to accept another currency.

We can accept only notes, not coins. We will work out an equivalent price in your chosen currency and you can then pay us in any combination of foreign and local money.

If we have to give you change we will attempt to do so in your offered currency. If unable to do so we will give you change in either Flag of The United Kingdom [Moonbeams Shop:Payment]Sterling (GBP), where available, or local money.
