Every seller charges different shipping costs depending on various factors.
Sellers usually charge higher shipping charges on low-value items. In such cases, Sellers charge a nominal delivery charge to help them offset logistic costs. Kindly review your order summary to understand the shipping charges for individual products.
What is the dispatch time?
This is the time required by the sellers to receive & prepare your order. After receiving your order, sellers prepare to pack the items and arrange postage via courier to your shipping address.

Business Days do not include Public holidays and Sundays.
