However, if you still wish to shop using credit you can do so via another of our brands, Jacamo, by clicking here
1. Who provides the credit?
We are J D Williams & Company Ltd and we provide the credit. This credit agreement is between you and us. Our registered office is Griffin House, 40 Lever Street, Manchester M60 6ES.
2. What type of agreement is this?
This is an ongoing agreement for running account credit. This means that, subject to remaining within your credit limit, you can re-borrow money as you repay. We provide credit to you under this agreement when you order goods from us and we allow you time to pay. Your agreement doesn’t have a fixed end date.
3. What is my credit limit?
Your initial credit limit is based on your circumstances and we’ll review it regularly. At our discretion, we may increase or decrease your credit limit but we’ll let you know when we change it.
You can reduce your credit limit or refuse an increase at any time. You can do this by contacting us. The most up to date contact details can be found online or on your statements.
You can order items or services from us up to your credit limit, but for certain items, we may require an additional payment to your account before it can be purchased on your credit account.
4. What is my interest rate?
Your standard interest rate is 24.99% per year variable and will apply for the duration of the agreement unless we change it. We may offer you a promotional interest rate from time to time, which you can read about in section 9.
5. What is the APR and how much could this cost?
The APR for your account is 24.9%APR variable. Below are the assumptions we have used in calculating your APR and an indication of how much using your account might cost you:
- Your credit limit is £750
- You immediately order items up to the value of your credit limit
- You repay us in 12 equal monthly payments including the interest due
- The standard interest rate on your account does not change
- Both of us fulfil the obligations of this agreement and the agreement remains in place for the whole 12 months
In these circumstances, the total amount you would repay is £825.69.
6. What fees and charges apply?
If your payment does not reach your account by the due date shown on your statement, (including if any credit or debit card payment is rejected, any cheque you use is dishonoured, or a direct debit is not paid) we reserve the right to charge you an administration fee of £12. This fee covers the cost of us reminding you to make your payment. If you fall behind with your payments and we have to take further steps to recover the money, we may also recover the reasonable costs that we or any collection agency have in recovering it.
If you make your payment via a Payzone or Post Office outlet using the barcode on your statement, you will incur a charge for this but we'll only charge you what it costs to process this payment. Please see terms and conditions online for the current charges.
7. Will the interest rates, fees, charges or agreement change?
We may change or introduce new interest rates, fees, charges and minimum payment calculations for the following reasons:
- Changes in the cost of providing the service
- Changes in the cost of funds or base rates
- Changes to law, regulation, or other external factors that may affect you
- Changes needed to operate our business in a profitable and prudent manner
- Changes in the risk make up of customers or the overall mix of fees and charges applied, or both
As well as the above we may also change this agreement to:
- Reflect new technology or changes to our systems or
- Change our services or how we operate
We’ll give you at least 21 days’ notice before making the change. If we make a change that will benefit you we may make it immediately and tell you about it afterwards.
8. How do we charge you interest?
If you pay the full balance shown on your statement by the payment due date then you will not be charged any interest on the statement that follows. If you choose not to pay your full balance before the due date, we’ll charge interest from the date each transaction or charge is added to your account until the balance is paid in full. We calculate interest on an average daily balance basis and charge it to the account on your statement date. This means that we will take any payments you have made during that statement period into account to reduce the amount of interest you are charged. The earlier you make your payment, the less interest you will be charged. If you pay at least the minimum payment each period you will pay off all the interest added to the account that period but, if you don’t, we will charge interest on that interest as well as on transactions added to your account. When we calculate your interest, we round it to the nearest penny.
9. How do promotional interest rates work?
We may offer you a promotional interest rate. To allow you to decide whether to accept the promotional offer we will provide you with the following information in advance:
- the promotional interest rate
- how long it will last for (the promotional period)
- how the promotion works
- any other special terms and conditions
Where you take advantage of the promotional rate, we’ll use it to calculate the amount of interest you owe on anything you buy during the promotional period in the same way we calculate interest as described in section 8. If you fail to keep to the terms of this agreement, we may withdraw promotional rates and resume interest charging at the standard rate.
10. How do payment holidays work?
We may offer you the option to take a payment holiday. A payment holiday allows you not to make your minimum payment shown on your statement for a specified period of time. We’ll tell you the period of time in the offer. If you decide to take this option, we’ll still charge you interest as described in section 8.
11. How and when will we send communications?
We’ll produce a statement for you every 28 days if there is a balance or activity on your account. You are responsible for checking each statement you receive. You should let us know straight away if:
- You don’t receive a statement when expected
- You think something is incorrect on your statement
We may communicate with you by phone, or by sending you notices, copies, letters and other communications by post, free text email or by attaching a document to an email address you have provided to us for the purpose of communicating with you. If you change any of your contact details (for example postal address, email or phone number) that you’ve provided to us, you must let us have the new information as soon as you can.
We’ll always communicate with you about this agreement in standard format. If you need your communications in an alternative format, such as large print, please let us know.
12. When will items ordered or returned appear on your statement?
As soon as you place an order we’ll reduce your available credit (the amount you have to spend) by the value of the goods or services you have ordered. If you place an order after the date we have generated your statement, your order information will appear on your next statement.
Items are not added to your balance until they have been despatched. We may despatch individual items from a single order on different days and they will be presented in this way on your statement/online transaction record.
If you return an item/s we will credit the balance on your account by the value of the item/s you were charged.
If you return an item we do not treat this as a payment, you will still need to make at least the minimum payment by the due date shown on your statement unless the value of the returned item/s clears your balance.
13. How and when do you need to make payments?
Providing you are actively using your personal account, we’ll send you a statement every 28 days which includes information such as:
- Items you’ve bought or returned
- Payments you've made during the period
- The outstanding balance
- Your minimum payment
· The due date for your minimum payment
Each time you receive a statement you need to pay at least the minimum payment shown by the payment due date. Your minimum payment will be the greater of:
- 5% of your balance; or
If your balance is less than £5 we’ll ask you to pay it all. Your minimum payment includes any overdue amounts owed from previous statements. When we calculate your minimum payment, we round it to the nearest penny.
You can find information on ways to pay and how long they take online, or on your statement but please be aware that some payment methods can take up to 7 days to reach your account. Some payment methods will attract a fee, which you can read about in section 6.
We may suggest using continuous payment authority to debit your card as an alternative payment method. If you agree to this option, you authorise us to debit the card you provided at the time. This will allow us to take agreed payments directly from your bank account. We’ll do this up to the date of any other payment arrangement we agree or until you cancel the arrangement (which you can do by contacting us). We’ll take the minimum payment due each period, or another agreed amount if you are making reduced or alternative payments to pay off any arrears. We’ll let you know if we can’t take any agreed payment in this way. If your card issuer refuses payment, we won’t request any further payments until we have spoken to you. We’ll never insist that you set up a continuous payment authority as a condition of us accepting lower or rescheduled repayments.
14. How are your payments allocated?
If the amount you pay is less than the full balance outstanding then we will allocate your payment in the following order:
- Payments due for any account or purchase protection insurance
- Any unpaid arrears amounts
- The remaining balance shown on your statement.
15. What happens if you don’t make a payment?
Missing payments can have serious consequences, which include the following:
- Administration fees as explained in section 6
- If you have a balance on a promotional interest rate we will move it to the standard interest rate
- We’ll stop you using your account to shop with us
- The amount you owe will increase
- We’ll let the credit reference agencies know, which may make getting credit more difficult for you
- Serious arrears may result in us obtaining a court order against you to enforce payment.
16. What happens if you’re struggling to pay?
If you’re having difficulty making payments, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss the situation. If you have two or more J D Williams personal credit accounts we may, if you agree, join the accounts into one to make repayment easier. If you fail to make any payments when they are due we can require that you pay the whole amount you owe immediately after the notice required by law. If you fall into serious arrears, we’ll consider making other arrangements with you.
17. Under what circumstances would this agreement end or be restricted?
Withdrawing from this agreement
If you change your mind about the account, you have the right to withdraw from this agreement without giving us a reason. You can do this by contacting our Credit Correspondence Team;
By phone: 0161 386 2226
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In writing: Credit Correspondence Team, J D Williams & Company Ltd, 40 Lever Street, Manchester, M1 1BB.
You have 14 days to do this, which starts from the day after the date the agreement is made. If you withdraw, you must repay any credit that you have used to buy goods and services without delay and no later than 30 days after telling us you want to withdraw.
You can repay all or some of the sums due under this agreement at any time by contacting us and making a payment.
If you want to end the agreement outside of the withdrawal period described above you can do this at any time, free of charge, by giving us one month’s notice. You can do this by writing to us at the address above and by repaying the balance on your account at the same time.
Terminating the agreement
We may terminate this agreement if you commit a significant breach of any of its terms, but before terminating we will give you written notice as required by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and will give you an opportunity to fix the breach as described in the notice. An example of a significant breach would be if you fail to make any payment or other sum owing to us under this agreement. We may also terminate this agreement on at least two months written notice. You can terminate this agreement at any time, free of charge, by giving us at least one month's written notice. Upon any termination of this agreement you shall repay to us the outstanding balance in full.
We may suspend, restrict or terminate your right to credit at any time for any reasons that are justified as fair and reasonable. If we do so, we will write to you to tell you before or immediately afterwards, unless the law says we do not have to, for example if doing so might stop the prevention of a crime.
If no transactions appear on your account for two years, we will take steps to close it. We will notify you in advance of this happening.
18. How can you complain?
If you have a complaint, please contact us in the first instance and we will make every effort to resolve matters to your satisfaction. You can do this by contacting us.

Electrical & electronic equipment
An EU directive is in place relating to recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment ('WEEE'). WEEE should not be disposed of with general domestic waste as sending this to landfill harms the environment. WEEE should instead be disposed of via the proper channels in order for items to be recycled; this saves energy and resources and avoids hazardous materials from WEEE going to landfill. Under the EU directive the UK must minimise the amount of WEEE which is disposed of as unsorted municipal waste and achieve a high level of separate collection of WEEE. On items of electronic equipment which you buy you will see the symbol:
This symbol means you should not dispose of this product in your dustbin with your mixed domestic waste. You should dispose of this product separately. We have joined the national distributor 'take back' scheme operated by Valpak. This scheme promotes a network of collection facilities where you will be able to dispose of WEEE free of charge and it will be sent for recycling. We do not offer in-store take back, so our couriers and delivery drivers won't be able to take away your waste electrical equipment from you. For information on your nearest collection facility please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk or call 03450 682 572. Alternatively, contact your local authority. In helping to separately collect WEEE you will be playing a key role in ensuring that recycling as required by these rules takes place and the amount of WEEE being land-filled is reduced, thereby helping to improve the environment. www.recycle-more.co.uk also offers top tips and advice on all aspects of recycling, making it easier and quicker to protect our environment and recycle more!
