Delivery and Packing Charges
A full explanation of our postage rates can be found here.
Individual Mail Order Customers
We understand how important it is to our customers to show our postage charges up front, rather than add them in at the checkout as "hidden" charges. Therefore before you proceed to enter your payment details the postage charges this order would incur would be calculated for you.
We ship by the most economical or customer preferred method in order to tailor shipping costs to your needs.
Orders may be shipped in more than one package and may not arrive simultaneously. We endeavour to process and ship orders as quickly as possible, usually within 1-2 working days. Delivery time can vary depending on the method of shipping and the destination. Our charges vary depending on the delivery address of each order.
Trade and Buddhist / Meditation Centre Customers
Within the UK postage and packing is free to all trade and Buddhist / meditation centre customers, except on single book orders and on orders with a value less than £50 where any such orders will be subject to our standard UK postage and packing charges.
Overseas trade and Buddhist / meditation centre customers are subject to postage and packing charges with due consideration given to the weight of the items and the postage costs to the country concerned.
