Payment Error Troubleshooting

If you are attempting to checkout and receive the following error message ‘transaction cannot be processed’ please contact your bank in order for them to authorise the transaction.

Order Confirmation

Once your order has been placed an automatic order confirmation will be sent to the email address provided at checkout. The order confirmation acts as an invoice and includes your order number and all relevant details.  We also send a hard copy of your invoice when your order is shipped.

After your order has been placed, a human in our office will send you a link to an online form, which you then need to use to submit four measurements for your dachshund.  You have a window of 7 days from the time of order to submit measurements before your payment authorisation lapses. We take payment only after you have submitted these measurements to us. If you do not submit measurements to us within this time then your order is cancelled. Once your measurements are submitted you have entered into a contract with us for a bespoke product.

If you notice any errors on your order confirmation please contact us so we can modify your order.

Order Processing

If we are making a bespoke coat for your dog, please allow around one week after we receive measurements for our production process, after which we will ship your order.  We do not guarantee this one week turnaround time, but in the unlikely event that we can’t meet this timetable we’ll tell you at the time you order.  At busy periods and when we are on holiday it will be obvious via a pop-up on our website before you place an order if bespoke production of an item is going to take more than one week.

Orders placed after 6:00 PM (GMT) may be processed the next business day and orders placed over the weekend and on holidays will be processed the next business day starting at 9:00 AM (GMT).  Please note that during peak sale periods processing times may vary.  Mixed orders with bespoke items and off the shelf items such as dog toys will only be dispatched once the bespoke items have been made.  

We will notify you when your order has been dispatched and will send you a tracking number.

Once you have placed and paid for an order with Barkmatic for a bespoke dog coat, made to your dog’s own measurements, you cannot cancel the order or return the coat for a refund after you have received the item if you have simply changed your mind and no longer want the item.  Under UK and EU law bespoke and personalised items are exempt from the cancellation rights that consumers are otherwise entitled to.

Please measure your dog carefully, and contact us with any queries in advance of making a purchase. We are here to help you and we want you be happy with your purchase.
