FAQ

Brexit and shipping from 1st January 2021

Our European orders are shipped via courier from our German warehouse as standard. There are no additional or hidden charges on orders shipping to EU countries.

Our rare books and Special Editions are processed from within the EU where possible, but will occasionally ship from our London studio and may be subject to additional charges. A disclaimer is included on the listings for affected titles. If you have any queries regarding shipping or specific titles, please email support@mackbooks.co.uk before placing your order. Once an order has dispatched, it is the recipient's responsibility to clear any customs or administration fees before or upon receipt of goods.

  

Placing an order

Your order confirmation

• Once you have placed an order, you will receive an automated confirmation email detailing the items you have ordered.
• If we establish that availability of any title ordered is not as stated on the website, you will be notified directly, and your card will be refunded for that portion of the order.

Our retail price and currency
• We are only able to take payment in Euros for orders shipping to addresses within Europe.
• We list the price of each book in multiple currencies as an indication of the recommended retail price for other retailers worldwide.
• The calculation of the price in the three different currencies is based on a significant number of variables, not just the exchange rate at the date of setting the retail price. Market fluctuations may further impact the differential between the multiple currencies.
• We are not able to make any special accommodation for this differential or any fluctuations.
• Your bank or card issuer may impose additional charges for a payment taken in EUR and these must be borne by you.
