How do I shop at VPA?

Please visit our section "How to Shop at VPA" for a detailed explanation of how to shop on our site.

An item that I was about to purchase is listed as out-of-stock. What can I do?

VPA uses a sophisticated shopping cart facility to ensure that products cannot be purchased that are out of stock. This is to protect you, the consumer, from lengthy product lead times. However, if you Contact Us with the details of the item which you wish to purchase, we will notify you of it's availability as soon as it is received.
