    No, I haven't.
    But I would be wary of doing so, based on some of the terminology on their website.
    From FAQ:

    What are the international taxes, duties, etc. that I have to pay?

    Charges that are imposed during or after shipping are the responsibility of the customer (tariffs, taxes, etc.).

    Why are they mentioning international taxes/duties when they say:

    Currently, we are operating in UK only.


    Why do they show their address on the home page as:

    Address: 24 Holborn Viaduct, London, EC1A 2BN, United Kingdom

    and on FAQ as

    nicolasnet is located at 26 George Street, Durham, England, DH6 5DR.


    This is amusing:

    We charge a flat shipping rate of £4.99 for all Brushes across UK.

    So what about the other stuff they sell?

    Address in Durham is a residential house , web search shows a previous scam site called megasocer.com which is closed down 

    Terms and conditions page for this site mentions megasocer as they have forgotten to update

    Many many red flags

    According to https://www.companieshousedata.co.uk , there are 1053 companies registered at 24 Holborn Viaduct ! Probably just one person and a desk taking in all the mail and then passing it on.Here's another company operating from 26 george St. If you want a laugh have a read of their "About us" page

    Just curious why you asked the question, Sarah.
    Were you thinking of placing an order or have you placed an order?

    My friend saw a Bradley food smoker that was £200 cheaper than anywhere else and I said it’s too good to be true and they didn’t believe me so I screenshot this thread x

    Ah. OK.
    Whenever I'm looking to buy from a company I've not done business with before, I always check out the 'about us' page. This company doesn't have one.
    And I read returns/refunds policy, that often throws up errors showing a 'cut-and-paste' from another website.

    A few years ago, someone posted about a Dr Marten website that they'd ordered from.
    In the 'returns/refunds' page it said 'swimwear returns will not be accepted without the hygiene strip'.
    Dr Martens have never sold swimwear.
    It's sad that we need to be so vigilant to protect our hard-earned money from cons, scams and rip-offs but the internet - and the real world - is not the fluffy, friendly place some people seem to think it is.

    I tried purchasing a Wok for £24, with shipping charges adding up to a total of £28.99. I did not receive a confirmation email of my order and found that a recurring charge of £28.99 had been placed for DETOXAH.COM, a health and beauty spa. I am currently disputing the charges.
