Why don't you have cheaper international shipping options?
We have had too many unhappy, frustrated international customers complaining that their orders take too long to arrive. Sometimes over a month or even not arriving at all when sent with a standard international airmail postal services.
We needed to take action and decided to send our international orders using an express, fully tracked airmail service by either UPS or DHL Express.
These shipping options have some other great added benefits –
Choose your delivery date.
Authorize a signature release.
Leave with a neighbour.
Collect from a service point.
Delivery to an alternative address.
Put your deliveries on hold.
These fantastic postal services are expensive, so we take care of some of the cost.
We want our customers to be happy, receive their orders quickly without delays with the full assurance they can accurately track their order.
As an alternative suggestion, some international customers use freight forwarding companies with a UK delivery address, so they pay UK shipping rates. This can enable them to consolidate and ship many UK orders in one shipment, therefore, lowering the cost.
