VAT no. – only needed for EU does help for international businesses (UK orders are all subject to VAT so we don’t need your no.)

EORI – compulsory for EU.


Please select the currency you wish to be billed in when you create your account – the options are GBP, USD, and EUR – as soon as you place your 1st order your account will be set up in the selected currency and this cannot then be changed without cancelling your online account and re-registering.

Order Discrepancies:

If you notice something is not quite right with your order, please notify us within 30 days of receipt if you have queries – after this time I’m afraid we cannot issue refunds.

Post Brexit for EU Customers:

As a member of the EU, you will now have to pay VAT on receipt of your order, at the rate of the country in which the shipment clears customs.

There shouldn’t be any import taxes or fees on products of UK or EU origin, but we can’t guarantee this.

Effectively you should expect to pay a similar amount, but just in a different way.

We will need your tax and EORI numbers prior to shipping – if not provided we will hold the order until we have the required numbers.

Amendments / Additions:

Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to make an amendment to your order. Orders are passed to the packing team the day after received, after which additions/amendments are not possible – so please check over your order carefully.

You will receive your invoice after your order has been packed, so additions at this point are not possible – extras will be charged as a new order and will be processed accordingly.


Please check your junk emails if you haven’t received an order confirmation – automatic emails from the website come from ‘wholesale@’ but we find some accounts, particularly Gmail, block them.

3rd Party Websites:

Reselling of branded products, or any reference to Merchant & Mills is strictly forbidden on 3rd party sites like Etsy, eBay, and Amazon – selling on private websites is fine – selling of made goods is fine.
