Shopping from our Facebook Page

We have now set up a fully functional shopping page on our Facebook page at This is of course in addition to our main shopping channel at The Facebook shopping channel is fully secure and it uses PayPay to process payments. You can get to the shop by clicking the “Shop Now” prompt on the left hand side of our page.

It utilises the Payvment Application which we have found very straight forward to set up and use. The Facebook shop only displays a small subset of our products (currently 9 products) including our new kids wellies. Our full range of over 100 products continues to be available on our main website. I think this will be a useful addition to our service to customers. We will see how it develops and how busy it becomes and will add more products including any new arrivals and special offers.

A few more details and limitations:

  • You need to set up a PayPay Business Account prior to setting up the Shop
  • Setting up a product on the Payvment Application is easy. You just need to enter the name, price, description, product image and product options (size and colour)
  • The use of the Payvment Application is Free.
  • It is quite limited is terms of shipping options – therefore we are only shipping to Ireland through our Facebook shop. We ship worldwide on our ecommerce website.
  • We offer Free Shipping to Ireland from our Facebook page shop to our Facebook fans

Waterproofs for Pre-schools and Creches

As well as selling online, we are always delighted to supply our waterproof clothes to creches and pre-schools. Many creches and preschools have wonderful new outdoor play areas and having the kids wearing suitable outdoor wear allows them to and enjoy their outdoor play in all weathers. We offer attractive discounts for bulk orders.

It was great to get these photos recently from one of our customers, Cushing House Community Childcare in Faranree, Cork. Thanks to all the staff at Cushing House for taking and sending the photos. It’s really heart warming for us to see the kids happy in their PuddleDucks gear.

Please contact us on or call us on 021 4372917 to get details of our waterproof clothes for preschools and creches.
