Local Delivery

Why do I have to select shipping option more than once at checkout?

Most likely, you are purchasing items from more than 1 seller. Your purchases are despatched directly from each seller’s premise to you directly. As such, you may receive your purchases in multiple packages.

No shipping cost will be reflected when free normal mail is included.

What are my shipping options and how much are they?

Shipping options are offered by respective sellers.

  • Singpost normal mails: $0.60-$3.55, depending on weight of parcel
    Please note that this option has no tracking option and Singpost does not compensate for lost normal mails
  • Anytime Courier (with tracking): from $5.90/parcel
  • Time-slot Courier (with tracking) : from $7.90/parcel

If you order comprises products from more than one seller, you may receive your items in multiple packages.

How long does it take?

Your order will be sent out within 1-8 working days (in case of any out of stock). The transit time after parcel is sent:

  • Singpost Normal Mail: 2-5 working days
  • Courier: Next day delivery

Do you deliver anywhere in Singapore?

Generally yes. But there will be additional charges for deliveries to restricted areas such as, but not limited to: Changi Airport Cargo areas, Sentosa, Jurong Island, Jurong Port, PSA (restricted areas), shipyards, Mindef, army camps, ministries, DSTA and embassies.

My order did not arrive. What should I do?

Digital Products will be available for download immediately after you made your purchase. Please login and go to My Account. If you do not see it after purchase, kindly contact us immediately.

 Physical Products will be sent to you directly from sellers to the mailing address you have provided at checkout. They will be sent out within 8 business days. Please check the delivery status by going to My Account> Orders. If the status is Shipped but you have not received it, please contact us.

 Magazines are sent out according to issue release dates. Your first issue may not be ready yet. Please check on your magazine subscription dates again or contact us to check.

 

Why am I seeing multiple order confirmation numbers?

One confirmation number is created for one package. If your order comprises items from more than one seller, you will see multiple confirmation numbers. This is to provide better tracking of order fulfilment by our sellers.

International Shipping

Do you ship outside of Singapore?

Yes, we ship internationally. 

You may be required to top up for shipping charges in event that your delivery address is considered “remote”, defined by our shipping partners.

How are shipping charges calculated?

All shipping charges will be automatically calculated based on the weight of your order at checkout after you provide your delivery address. The shipping cost per book is lower when you purchase more books.

We work with major forwarders such as DHL and Aramex. Our air freight rates are competitive due to our shipping volume. We encourage you to opt for air freight option for faster delivery and better tracking. 

There will be additional charges for delivery addresses defined "remote" by our shipping partners.

Do I get a tracking number on my order?

If you have opted for shipping option with tracking, the tracking number will be updated in our system once your parcel has been sent out. You will also receive a notification e-mail from us.

Are there any taxes? Do I need any import permits?

Import duties or permits requirements are subject to your country’s import regulations. Please note that custom duties, to be borne by you, may be applicable on your order when it arrives at your country. You should liaise with the authorities directly.

Can you track my undelivered or missing parcel?

We will provide you with the contact details of our shipping forwarder for faster and more effective communication between you and the forwarder.

Economy Sea Shipping:  In the  unfortunate event of any loss or missing parcels, the shipping partner (Singpost) will only investigate the case after 90 days from case lodgement. We are not responsible for any lost parcels.
