Payments and Shipping

Payment options
Payments may be made either directly to our bank via electronic fund transfer or via Paypal. We accept all major credit cards.

VAT (Value Added Tax)
VAT is a tax on all goods sold in the EU.
A VAT rate of 23% applies to all products sold with Ireland.
A VAT rate of 0% applies to EU registered companies who are also registered for VAT.
A VAT rate of 0% applies to non-EU registered companies.

The prices on our website are shown with and without VAT. The rate and the amount of VAT are shown on all orders and invoices.

Orders outside the EU may be subject to local taxes, import duties or customs charges. We are unable to accept responsibility for charges levied by other countries as customs policies vary widely from country to country.

Shipping
Domestic and international delivery is made with the Irish postal service (An Post - Standard Post). The cost of delivery depends on the weight of items ordered and the delivery location. Delivery locations are divided into 4 zones as follows.

Zone 4 Ireland incl. Northern Ireland
Zone 3 UK excl. Northern Ireland
Zone 2 Europe (EU)
Zone 1 Rest of World

A shipping calculator is included on the order form which takes into account all of these factors. Approximate An Post - Standard Post delivery times for different delivery locations are shown in the table below:
