Did you set up an account?
They literally changed my order immediately after I placed it, I went back to their site immediately after making payment and they had already substituted the brands, I checked my recent orders.
They did this on two separate occasions. I had to go on web chat to sort it..... They give you spiel about their brand having 3year warranty blah blah blah.
I hope they have now realised that it's bad business practise .

Should be all good then.
Maybe they have seen the error of their ways now.

I know my experience wasn't an isolated incident because I googled it and it had been happening a lot.

Pads are the same for all rear disc sizes, so if you're old ones are not too bad, you can use them.
