Coronavirus & postage update -
I will be posting a couple of times a week, to minimise the amount of contact I have outside my home (the Post Office is our local minimart).
Our Post Office told me on 6th March that International post is still being sent but may take a day or two longer. However, if you KNOW that international mail is not being accepted by your country, please do not order for now.
Postal addresses - the PayPal ordering system supplies me whichever postal address is listed as your main address in your PayPal. So please make sure this is NOT a 'click and collect' address if you may be unable to actually collect the item from your local store. If I send to a 'click and collect' address, it can be very difficult for me (as the sender) to actually retrieve the parcel should anything go wrong re the collection part.
International postage rates are going up on 1st July 2020. Royal Mail are also having to introduce a new World Zone 4 mailing rate for the USA, because USPS costs have increased massively (including a 100% increase on USA Customs processing charges). Read more here. Shipping will still be flat rate, Tracked and Signed.
