What we’re trying to do
Elara Online was founded in August 2006 and we’re making every effort to be Ireland’s best PC and component e-tailer. This means offering the largest and newest assortment of products, from the world's leading manufacturers, at a competitive price, within a reasonable time, and directly to your door.
The way it works Elara is a 100% Irish Owned Online Company. We utilise automated, online systems to allow our customers to place and view their orders over the web. This allows us to save on costs and in turn we can pass those savings on to our customers.
Customers should note that all payments are pre authorised before orders are processed, if there is a delay receiving a check, bank draft or a credit/debit card is unauthorised the order will not be processed until payment is made.
Our warehouse will send a dispatch email when the order leaves us. This email contains tracking number(s) and contact details for the carrier. Delivery usually takes place the day after a customer receives the dispatch email, but sometimes the delivery can be delayed till the second day, this is especially true for very rural areas of the country. If the courier has made one attempt to deliver and if the customer is not available, the courier will leave a calling card and the customer will have 7 days to contact the courier company and request a second delivery. After seven days without contact from the customer, the courier will return the order to Elara Online. If we are requested by the customer to re-dispatch the order there will be a second delivery charged. Please note that orders delivered to companies may not be delivered to the customer in person, but will likely be signed for at a post room, goods in or at the reception area, please notify the relevant personnel in your company if this is the case.
Pre/Post Sales Advice and Phone Orders
Because Elara Online is an ‘e-tailer’ we ask that our customers submit orders through our website. We have a small but dedicated sales team available to handle calls.
Bear in mind that our sales personnel are not suitably qualified to give technical advice and solve compatibility issues. They will do their best to help, but in most cases they are just referencing information that is readily available on our website. Should a customer have questions regarding products, and they cannot find the answer on our website, then we would advise that they visit the manufacturer’s website which is listed above the shipping link when they are viewing a products full details. Should a customer be unable to find the relevant information they can email the sales team using the "Email a query" link on the right hand side of the page when they are viewing a products full details, we will then attempt to give an acceptable answer by reply of email.
Email contacts for the sales team can be found in the Contact us section.
Please be advised that Elara online does not provide technical support for products other than Elara branded computers. All technical support queries should be directed to the relevant manufacturer.
Email contacts for the CS team can be found in the Contact us section.
