Please note: With a Bank Transfer we are unable to dispatch goods until cleared funds have arrived in our account. This is usually just a matter of minutes and shouldn't be a problem but in some cases it can take up to six working days.
Pay by cheque or money order. The online order form may also be printed out and posted to us quoting your credit card details or enclosing a cheque or postal order payable to 'The Mexican Hammock Company'. With a cheque, we will need to confirm that the cheque has cleared prior to dispatching the order. Forms or written orders may be posted to us at:

In addition to the above payment methods you may also pay by International Money Order which should be made out in UK Pounds Sterling payable to 'The Mexican Hammock Company'.
Unfortunately we do not accept Eurocheques or cheques made out in currencies other than UK Pounds Sterling due to excessive charges made by UK banks when crediting this type of payment.
The Mexican Hammock Company has been supporting smaller producer groups in Mexico for more than 35 years and is an important outlet for many small Mexican enterprises. We believe in the concept of development through small scale trade and communal, worker owned, ventures in regions of high unemployment and relative poverty.
