Orders and Postage



Unlike most mail order goods, there is no tax (VAT) on books in Great Britain. Therefore, the price to you is the same, whether you are in Great Britain or any other country.

You can pay by PayPal, or by debit/credit card via Stripe. The relevant postage charge (see below) will be applied automatically; for overseas orders, this depends on the country and the number of books ordered.

If the actual cost of overseas postage is significantly less than these amounts (for instance if your books are lighter than average), we may at our discretion refund the excess.

Overseas orders over 750g are not necessarily sent by air mail. Please ask for the additional cost if you require air mail.

The postal charges above are applied automatically to every website order, but must be added for orders by phone or post.

We normally despatch orders within 2 working days of receipt of order, but occasionally it may take longer. We will advise you if despatch will take more than 10 days. If you have ordered more than one item, they may be despatched separately, but you still pay only the one postage charge.

Goods exported from the UK

We cannot accept liability for any charges that may be imposed once the package has left the United Kingdom. On delivery, you may have to pay customs duty, import duty, tax or administration charges. We cannot advise on these, and you should check before ordering.
