As you know we offer a variety of shipping options at different prices and service levels. This means that the most economic and flexible choice for your order is at the discretion of the customer and not forced on you. In the past it has been difficult to know in advance how much the shipping costs for your order would be. We have improved this by adding a shipping quote facility to the store to view the rates before even creating an account.
To find out shipping rates please add the desired items to your cart. When viewing the cart contents press the button “shipping quote” and the prices for all the options will be displayed. For an explanation of the shipping options please check the Shipping & Returns page.
As an ultra-low budget option aimed at heavy items such as paper we offer Surface Mail service with around 2 months transit time. Surface Mail items have limited insurance depending on weight.
While the transit time is quite long, it is a viable alternative for heavy items that would normally prohibitively expensive to ship. With careful advance planning and ordering could be a great way of lowering your expenses even further.
For more information including tracking facility, please refer to the Shipping & Returns policy pages.
As a low budget option we now offer SAL shipping, an inexpensive, low-priority service, with around 2-3 weeks transit time. Like small packet airmail this type of package is neither insured nor trackable and we do not take responsibility for items lost or delayed in transit. It is however a viable alternative and with careful advance planning and ordering could be a great way of lowering your expenses even further. SAL is particular cost-effective for packages around 1kg, where it comes in at almost half the price of small packet airmail. So if you have time and are on a budget, choose SAL.
