Once you have successfully placed an order with us you will be sent a confirmation email that we have received the full details of your order successfully and that the order is now being processed. The confirmation email will state the products you have ordered, the total cost including VAT (where applicable) as well as postage and packaging costs and your chosen shipping address. Please check the confirmation email and notify us immediately of any errors by emailing shop@collective-edinburgh.art.

Your order represents an offer by you to purchase goods from us. If for any reason your order cannot be processed, a member of our team will contact you to explain the reason for this and offer an alternative if applicable.

When your order is accepted a follow-up email will then be sent once the goods have been dispatched to you. It is only at this point in time that we accept your offer, are bound to fulfill it and a contract is formed.


Online payments are in Pounds Sterling.

Overseas customers may find their orders are subject to import duties and taxes, which may be levied once a delivery reaches its destination country. Collective Matter has no control over additional customs charges. These charges are to be paid and dealt with by the customer.

We accept payment via PayPal and Credit or Debit card via Shopify Pay. We are fully PCI DSS compliant.

All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, your order will not be accepted and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. If this happens we will contact you within 24 hours of you placing your order to notify of this.


If you wish to cancel your order you must notify us as soon as possible after placing the order. If you have already received an email confirming dispatch of your order it will not be possible to cancel your order. In this case it will be your responsibility to return the goods in their original condition and at your own expense in accordance with our returns policy.


We carry the risk of loss or damage to the products until you receive them. The products belong to you when you have received them and have paid us in full. If you return the products to us for any reason, they will become our property once they have been received and signed for by us and be at our risk from the time we receive them.

If we are unsuccessful in contacting you we will assume the order cancelled and issue a full refund to you via the original payment card used.
