One thing I have always appreciated is transparent pricing when I am buying things online and I am constantly frustrated by stores that don’t offer delivery to certain countries or charge extortionate delivery fees. When creating this store I made it part of my mission to make pricing as simple as possible, attempting to incorporate delivery costs into the price of all items so you are not hit by high delivery charges at checkout.
There are two delivery costs for items ordered on this site, depending on the location you are having them delivered to:
- Free Delivery: Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania
- 10% of Total Basket Value: South America, Africa
Whilst I would love to be able to ship to South America and Africa for free, current shipping costs prohibit me from doing so, but I hope to offer free worldwide delivery in the future.
As each item is available to every country in the world, I cannot give fixed delivery times, but each product lists sample delivery times on the product page for a selection of countries from different continents. In Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania most products will arrive in 10-30 days, but please allow up to 60 days for delivery. In South America and Africa most products will arrive in 20-40 days, but please allow up to 60 days for delivery.
As someone who spent years on a shoestring budget, offering free / low price shipping was always more important to me than getting things delivered super quickly, so by waiting a little bit longer, you save lots of money so can travel for longer.
One thing I cannot control is whether or not you will be charged import charges for the items you purchase from the Great Big Scary World Adventure Store. In most cases, there will be no problems, but it is possible that your country – it depends completely on where you are getting your item delivered to – will levy some import tax on the item. To try and avoid this, most items will be marked ‘gift’ and declared to be of low value.
