International Retail Orders Direct From Us

We are willing to ship to anywhere in the world, and at present use Sendle as our delivery provider.

However, please note that some foreign countries due to the COVID pandemic, may have closed borders to international deliveries or internal crises that may prevent ease of international parcel delivery.

International orders will incur a handling fee of $10 per order plus a postage fee based on the destination and weight of the package.

We would love to hear from you and provide you with an international order quote, so please contact us directly being sure to include which of our books you would like to order, how many you would like to order and the country where you would like the books shipped.

We will contact you as soon as possible via email with a quote for your international order. Please allow up to 48-72 hours to receive it.

Please note at this time, it is difficult to provide a table of estimated global postal delivery times on our website, so each order will be considered on an individual basis.

Upon your acceptance of the quoted international order costing, we will notify you regards how to proceed with making your payment and then upon receipt of payment, your order will be dispatched usually within 5-7 business days.

If you choose not to go ahead, your order quote will expire after 7 days and should you choose at any time in the future to enquire again, a new quote will be issued at that time.
