Update to our Terms: Weapon Sales Legislation in UK

Posted by Stella Richards on

Due to legislation updated in UK in 2008, sale of all swords over 50cm require a copy of membership / eligibility, and proof of age. You must be over 18 to purchase a sword in UK, even a replica Fantasy Sword.

To comply with these laws, Mental XS Online now requires the following BEFORE shipping any Sword over 50cm, and ANY bladed weapon outside of USA or Canada.

1. A photo or scan of your membership certificate and / or eligibility to own and use your purchase.

2. Proof of age, in the form of a photo or scan of your photo ID.

We will refund your card if checkout is successful but we cannot confirm your right to purchase.

There are so many ways to pay for things, which one do you prefer?

Posted by Stella Richards on

We recommend Google Wallet

My favorite, and recommended for fast, safe credit card purchases, is Google Wallet.

It's ever so easy to enter card details, the fastest site I've ever used.

So, we made the painful decision...

Excuse me whilst I have a rant...

Posted by Stella Richards on

Everyone knows it's about the Sale, but no one likes the word anymore. They prefer the word Social. They are the type of people to watch someone walk in a store to see if they like what they buy, before they try it themselves. If everything in the shop was that bad, they wouldn't still HAVE a store. Individuality, trend-setting. You all wanna be that person, but you're too scared to go first. Who cares if you look weird, or you're the only person wearing it. That's the POINT! So take a risk, go first, and make everyone else wish they...
