UK orders will normally be sent by second class post. You should receive your order within five working days. However, due to factors beyond our control within the postal system, please allow seven working days for your order to arrive. We have found the Royal Mail to be the most effective carrier for books. However, if for any reason your order is not with you after seven working days please check with your local delivery office. If they do not have your parcel, please complete our pre-delivery response form quoting your Digital Receipt number.
