Listing your Optician Business on the Website Directory

All listings are for a 12 month ‘annual’ period or ‘monthly subscription’ as offered in the signup process you selected/specified at the time of signup. The prices and the terms of payment for a listing and entry on Eyetest.co.uk are displayed at all times on this website, including the point where you choose to make a purchase.

The subscriber understands and agrees that upon purchasing a listing for their optical business, said listing will automatically renew on the date of expiration except where the subscriber notifies termination thereof to the Eyetest.co.uk Optician Directory prior to the subscription’s expiration date. In such cases, the renewal shall be performed in accordance with the manner of payment originally chosen by the subscriber, at the price rate of the original subscription. A listing for one company cannot be substituted for a listing for another.

Subscribers can cancel their subscription at any time by contacting us, with termination taking effect from the end of the validity period covered by the last annual or monthly payment made. For instances where a subscriber requires a listing to be removed immediately, please contact our directory team. A refund for the remaining subscription period will not be offered. If a subscriber removes their listing within the subscription period any reinstatement of the said listing will be charged at the price rate of the original subscription. You are at risk of losing online visibility and exposure to all users of eyetest.co.uk.
