EU customers rejoice: Tribe is now signed up to the EU's IOSS scheme, collecting and remitting VAT on orders under €150 Euro (approx GBP£130) on your behalf. Parcels are sent with our IOSS / VAT details clearly displayed, and labelled duty exempt. You may be charged handling or processing fees by your local post office - but no VAT or duty should be charged. Orders over €150 are not currently covered by IOSS, and may be subject to import duty and VAT on reaching your jurisdiction.
As much as we would 🌸 LOVE 🌸 to offer Free Shipping forever, in reality we don't think it's a fair and transparent way to do business (hiding the actual cost in product prices, or exploiting underpaid delivery drivers), or a reasonable expectation. (Even Amazon Prime charges over £100 per year to cover shipping!)
We do promise to keep our shipping prices as low as possible, and we don't make any profit on packaging & shipping.
Here's an instagram post we wrote on the topic.
Also, every order with us EARNS YOU POINTS which you could use to offset shipping costs.
We ship Domestically and Worldwide with Royal Mail and DHL Express. Our shipping rates are based on the weight of your order.
Packages are sent out Monday - Friday (except Bank Holidays).
We do our very best to post your goodies as soon as possible - usually the same day. You will receive an automated shipping confirmation e-mail as soon as your order leaves us.
Any orders which can be mailed in an envelope (e.g. knitting needles and/or individual patterns) are sent 1st Class.
All "parcel" orders are sent using either Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service, or with DHL Express for next day delivery.
