Changes to delivery charges

Fighting 15s’ delivery charges have been updated to take into account price rises introduced by Royal Mail on 6 April 2009.

Our minimum delivery charge is now 61 pence plus VAT, and postage is calculated by weight according to Royal Mail rates for our shop’s weight ranges. In the UK items up to 250g are sent large letter rate, items up to 500g are sent at packet rate, items up to 750g are sent recorded packet rate, and items over 750g are sent special delivery. Note that although postage itself is exempt from VAT, VAT is due on delivery charges based on the contents of the package.

Items sent to Europe or Worldwide are sent small packet airmail below 500g, and registered post above that weight. The Royal Mail’s worldwide rates seem to have risen more than rates to other destinations, as customers in the USA will notice. Minimum postage to a destination in Europe is now 1.21 pence, and 1.93 pence to all other destinations. VAT is not charged on delivery charges for destinations outside the European Union.
