Information about deliveries from Wild Places Publishing

How much does delivery cost?

All our prices include delivery charges. The default price includes UK postage – if you select a location outside the UK, the price will change to reflect the increased postage costs. We only add the difference in price between UK and overseas destinations.

Do you deliver internationally?

Yes, we do. When you order an item, you must use a drop-down box to select your location – this will change the price because it includes the increased delivery charge (the increase represents the actual additional cost of posting overseas). Subscriptions offer the choice of economy (surface) mail or airmail, at different prices. Other items, such as books, are priced inclusive of economy mail (only). For further information on delivery times outside the UK, please follow the Delivery link at the bottom of each page.

When will my order be delivered?

We use Royal Mail for all our deliveries. We try to post orders within two to three working days, though this may occasionally take longer if we are on expedition, for example, but most postings are prepared for despatch on the same day that the order is received. If your order is time-critical, please contact us before placing it and we will do our best to help. For further information on delivery times outside the UK, please follow the Delivery link at the bottom of each page.

Can I have my order delivered to another address?

Yes, you may choose a different address during checkout; this is perfect for sending a gift to someone else, or having your own order sent to a work address.

You will have set up your Invoice address during registration (this is usually your home address – your confirmation e-mails and invoice will be sent here, and this must match the address registered with your bank for your credit or debit card). You can add other addresses in My Account and select one of these to use for delivery, as you require.

The delivery options I need are not available. What do I do?

Contact us and we'll do our best to help. Wild Places is a small organisation and we are flexible enough to sort out most problems if we know what is wanted.

I live in the EU ... how does this affect me?

Since July 2021 the EU has required that any items, including books and magazines, brought into the EU will be taxed at the country's VAT rate. This includes Descent magazine. By ordering any items from Wild Places, you are accepting that any taxes or handling fees required by your country will be your responsibility. All our sales are despatched as VAT exclusive (we do not charge VAT on publications, and do not pay the VAT or other charges levied within the EU). You will be required to pay any import charges on delivery and accept this condition when you place your order.
