Terms & conditions
Terms and conditions
Please Note: We only accept orders from the Republic of Ireland.
At Currys & Carphone Warehouse, we love to help all consumers, but if you are buying for a business, please let us know; there are some other terms (and benefits) you should know about.
We’ve tried to keep our Terms and Conditions as clear as possible, and give you all the information we can (but not too much) about your online transactions so that you completely understand the whole process, from order to delivery and beyond. With this in mind you'll find a list of useful pages when using our site, including registering with us, how to buy online, all about your order, payments and security and most importantly peace of mind. It’s really important to us that your online shopping experience meets expectations, so please spend a few minutes and read on. You’ll need to accept our T’s & C’s every time you make a purchase – they might change from time to time, so do check the date at the top of the page.
Please note that different terms (including prices, charges for services, availability, delivery times and returns policies) apply to purchases made in one of our stores.
Our contract after you have ordered
Firstly, don’t panic if you make any mistakes during your order, you can correct any input errors right up until you confirm payment. Once you’re happy everything is correct and you’ve submitted an order you’ll be given an Order Reference Number and details of the products (and/or services) you have ordered. You’ll then receive an email headed ‘Order Acknowledgement’ recognising receipt of your order. We will then send a further email headed ‘Order Confirmation’. This second email also lets you know how your products will be delivered to you. If we have to cancel all or part of your order for any reason, we will email you to let you know.
If you have placed an order by telephone and you don't have an email address, we'll give you the Order Reference Number over the phone and post you a copy of your receipt.
Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). In this instance we may have to cancel your order at any time, even if you have received your Order Confirmation email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid. Refunds can take up to 5 working days to appear back into your account.
If you choose our Order and Collect service you will be given a reference number and details of your order. You will not be asked to pay until you collect the goods from your chosen store.
Because all Order & Collect sales take place in our stores, sales are subject to the normal in-store terms of sale, statutory rights and the Manager's discretion. Just take your Order & Collect print out and/or reference number with you and our store will sell you the goods at the website price or store price, whichever is cheaper.
Prices and payments
As you would expect all our prices are in Irish Euro. The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order, the delivery charge (if any), plus any additional services you choose e.g. installation. You’ll see all these in your Shopping Basket before you submit an order. Payment is deducted once an order is submitted. You can pay using the following credit cards;
- Visa Debit
We only accept Irish registered bank cards and don't accept cheques or cash for online orders. When deciding whether to accept your order we may use certain information about you, including any received from our accredited identity verification partner. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.
If we identify a transaction as being potentially fraudulent we may ask our courier to return the goods to our warehouse, we may cancel your order even after you will have received the Order Confirmation email.
How do you protect me against Fraud
We use identity checking to protect you and detect and prevent fraud. As part of our security checks we may call you to verify your details and your identity.
Card transactions are authenticated on our behalf by our Identity Verification partner, currently 192.com. This means that, for your own security, we try to ensure that only the owner of the card is able to use it. Our Identity Verification partner will check against various public and private databases and retain a record of the check and your details that they may use to assist other companies with identity checking.
What information do we collect? The information we collect may include;
- Your Internet protocol (IP) address
- Log in and password details
- Your browser type and version
- Your Purchase History
We are a subsidiary of Currys PLC and may need to pass the information we collect to other companies within our group for administrative purposes. We may also use third parties to carry out certain activities, such as processing and sorting data, monitoring how customers use our site and issuing our emails for us.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally indentifiable customer information.
Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose information to you or require you to enter your password to access areas of the site displaying sensitive information.
Restrictions - age requirements and limits on orders
Some of our products have a minimum age requirement (computer games for example), and by ordering you are confirming that you are of the required age. Your age may be checked using an approved age verification service.
Delivery and installation services
When it comes to dropping stuff off, our delivery team have certainly got the muscle. We deliver the big bulky products like large screen TVs above 39". To save you the hassle, we'll even recycle your old product and remove the packaging - for free. Small products such as cameras, sat navs, TVs under 40", printers, software, data storage, tablets, laptops are couriered to you by our delivery partners - DPD.
Small box deliveries are Monday to Friday (ex. Bank holidays), generally between 9a.m. - 6p.m. We aim to deliver your parcel between 2-5 working days and charge only €6.99 for your entire order. Please allow extended delivery times during Sales periods, Bank holidays, January Sale and our busy Black Tag/Black Friday trading periods. We will always keep you well informed of your order delivery status through the email you provided on your order.
Large item deliveries such as TVs over 40", dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges, freezers or ovens are delivered by our delivery service team 6 days a week between Monday - Saturday in most areas. Large items can be delivered for only €24.99. We aim to deliver within 5 working days, however, this could extend beyond 7 days depending on your location. Refer to our 'Delivery Exceptions' in our delivery services page. Our team members reserve the right to cancel deliveries that could endanger their health and safety. So if you require large-item delivery to a room or flat above the first floor of your home or block, our team will only be able to decide if it can do this on arrival.
We do not deliver to Parcel Motels and your order will be cancelled.
Disconnection of your old appliances
You’ll need to have safely disconnected your old appliance prior to our arrival unless you have chosen one of our installation services for your new product. Gas and dual fuel cookers must be disconnected by a Gas Safe registered engineer and mains wired electric cookers should only be disconnected by a qualified person.
For most large products we can take away your old appliance for you and for FREE when we deliver your new one.
Electrical products are brilliant when they’re working, but getting rid of your old one can be problematic. Maybe you're aware, or maybe not, that Ireland is one of the best recyclers of electrical appliances in Europe. Under Ireland's application of the European WEEE directive, retailers are obliged to accept old products on a one for one basis when consumers are purchasing new electrical appliances. When a new appliance is being delivered, retailers are again obliged to take away and arrange the recycling of the old appliance. We're delighted to play our part in this. If you have any piece of electrical equipment you want to recycle, you can either:
Damaged, missing or incorrect orders
We want you to be absolutely satisfied with your product. When you receive your product please unpack and check it for damages as soon as it arrives. If you find it damaged or incorrect please report to us immediately or within 14 days of purchase or delivery.
Please get in touch via the Contact Us facility on the Customer Services page or by emailing email@example.com.
We do everything we can to ensure your order arrives at your door complete and in pristine condition. If you don’t receive all your products at once, you can check that they have been dispatched using our tracking facility detailed in the confirmation email. If it’s not on its way, you can contact us via the Contact Us facility on the Customer Services page or telephone 1890 400 001 . In the unlikely event that the product is faulty, please follow the instructions in the delivery documents.
Returns/cancellations and after sales policy
If for whatever reason you change your mind and would like to return your order after delivery, we’re happy to refund or exchange your purchase as long as it’s unopened and in its original packaging. This option is available for 21 days after delivery.
Following European Union (Consumer Information, Cancellation and Other Rights) Regulations 2013, we will accept items back even if you have opened the goods to inspect them.

DVDs, CDs, memory cards and software discs must still be sealed. If you want to return a Software Product Activation Key card which is not faulty, the silver strip on the back of the card must be fully intact as new.
In the case of a service contract or a contract for the supply of a digital download, the cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.
If you consent to a digital download starting within the 14 day cancellation period and acknowledge the right to cancel will be lost, you will not be able to request a refund.
