As a long standing retailer with over 20 years online experience selling in the UK we are happy to work with customers large and small on their postage stamps requirements. However, we would respectfully point out that large volume and high value orders are treated by the website and despatch systems separately to mainstream orders. As part of this process, We would recommend that customers wishing to order over £1500 of postage stamps contact our customer care team before placing the order.
This will allow us to validate the stock position for any large order and deal with your request as a priority pick through our warehouse and transport systems.
In addition, for user card protection and anti-fraud verification, it may be that additional validation is required and we reserve the right to request large value orders for postage are paid by Cheque, BACS or Transfer rather than by card payment.
This is designed to provide an additional layer of verification and security along with allowing us to work with you to ensure a secure signed delivery of any order.
MyPostShop team handle many large and high volume orders every week and we will work to accommodate your requirements wherever possible.
Q. What happens to my order if my Internet connection is suddenly lost?
A. If this happens, provided you were logged in at the time your items will still be in your shopping basket when you return to the site.
Q. During Checkout the price of a product line has changed.
A. This is an effect of the rules set by HMRC for calculating and reporting VAT. As prices are set in ex. VAT form, and then VAT is applied, the inc. VAT amount is calculated to a fraction of a penny. The final total must be shown to meet the rules set by HMRC. Overall, a few prices will be rounded down a penny, and a few prices will be rounded up by a penny. The majority of products will not be affected.
Q. How can I get a VAT receipt?

See About Us for locations.
Alternatively, you can find your local waste portable battery recycling facility at www.recyclenow.com. Most supermarkets and shops that sell batteries will have collection bins for used batteries, and some town halls, libraries or schools may also set up collection points. End-users may find stores in their local area more accessible.
Q. What is your Electical Equipment Recycling Policy?
A. The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.
In the UK, distributors including retailers must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. As a responsible retailer, we have met the requirements placed on us by financially supporting the national network of WEEE recycling centres established by local authorities. This is achieved through membership of the national Distributor Take-back scheme (DTS). Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with this symbol) in your bin. If you do not recycle electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination, harming wildlife and also human health.
We're proud to support your local authority in providing local recycling facilities for electrical equipment. To find your nearest recycling centre, visit the www.recycle-more.co.uk website and type in your postcode.

A. Our customer services team is happy to talk you through any problems you might be having with the site. You can email them using the contact form.
Q. I need to re-order a printer cartridge. How do I know which one to order?
A. Every cartridge has a product code on it, and this is also marked clearly on the product packaging. If you're having trouble finding this, you can also visit the manufacturer's website for help.
You can also use our Ink Finder to search by printer make and model, or by cartridge number.
Q. How do I add an item to 'my favourites'?
A. If there are certain items that you order regularly, you can add them to your favourites list. This saves you time looking for an item each time you return to the site.
When you click on a product detail page, you'll see a small yellow star icon with 'Add to favourites' next to it (this will be on the right hand side of the page). Click on this icon to add that item to your favourites list. You can then view your list by logging onto the My Account section.
