What charges can I expect for my overseas order?
We aim to make overseas delivery as simple and cost effective as possible for our customers. Our prices are therefore set inclusive of VAT so that our customers do not have to pay additional import VAT to receive their goods on orders that are less than £120 (excl. p&p).
Import Duty for EU Countries
Any overseas orders that exceed £120 (excl. p&p) are likely to be liable for import duties and VAT at the point of import into the EU country. Postscript Books has no control over these charges for import clearance for orders. If you are placing a large overseas order, you can contact our Customer Services Team for support:
• by calling 01626 897123 (8am–6pm, Monday–Friday)
• or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Are any EU countries exempt from delivery at present?
Overseas Delivery Charges
We do not make a profit from our delivery charges: delivery costs for orders outside of the UK are based on product weight and country of destination. You can use the Shipping Calculator in the 'Order Summary' section of the Basket to estimate delivery costs. You can also see the weight of each product in the Basket, making it easy to see which titles may be causing high overseas delivery costs. Please note that the total order weight shows on the Payment page. If you are ordering by phone, our team will be able to let you know the delivery charge.
