Royal Mail Economy
All of our domestic services with Royal Mail are now tracked using their 2D barcodes, while this service does not track parcels throughout the network it does track both delivery attempts and provides delivery confirmation if needed. Please note that if your item doesn't arrive within the specified time these parcels are not considered lost until 15 working days have passed, once 15 working days have passed we will provide a replacement item via a tracked service. We regret we cannot refund standard items that are lost, or send replacements before the 15 working days have passed.
International deliveries are not tracked as standard, our international economy service can take between 7 and 21 working days for delivery depending where in the world you are located. Please note that if your item doesn't arrive within the specified time international economy shipments are not considered lost until 31 working days have passed, we regret we cannot refund items that are lost, or send replacements before this period has passed.
