Pricing & Postage
Details of our pricing, VAT and Postage (click on title to read more)
All our prices include the postage to any location worldwide, via Royal Mail Small Packet Airmail (outside UK). We find that this normally arrives within 7-10 days, often sooner. Items are not officially late until three weeks after posting. The prices do NOT include postal insurance. For info, the postage rates for this service can be found by clicking here. For calculations, remember that our standard 150g cone weighs 200-220g including centre, packaging and our tendency to wind too much...
Within the UK the we use Royal Mail First Class post.
To explain our flat pricing policy, which at first sight seems a little unfair to UK/EU customers compared to say US ones, it is important to mention that we have to pay VAT at 20% on all sales to EU customers. Rather than work out individual postage rates and then add on VAT for EU customers, we find it easier to have a global price that includes everything, and it works out reasonably fairly (we think, at least!).
Our VAT registration number is 881377689
