Shipping & Delivery


Royal Mail are continuing to work hard to collect, process and deliver UK mail.  However, due to Coronavirus related absences there may be a delay in delivering some mail.

We ship to UK and most of Europe.

If your order is received before 12 noon, we aim to include it in that afternoon's postal collection (except Saturday when there is no postal collection).   Tracking information will be sent to you to enable you to trace your order. 


Royal Mail restructure their shipping prices and weights from April each year and our shipping options are amended to reflect these changes, but will remain weight/size based at the actual shipping cost.  You can see your estimated shipping charges at any time by going to your shopping cart, entering your Country and Post Code and then selecting "Get A Quote".  We have also extended our shipping options to include Courier delivery - a cost effective alternative if there is no urgency in receiving your order.   If the actual shipping charge is different to the estimated charge, no additional charge will be made but an overpayment will be refunded.


From April 2013, BeadShopUk are offering free shipping for orders over £35 to UK post code customers (excluding Channel Islands). Once your shopping cart reaches £35, the Free Shipping option will become available at the checkout.  Shipping will depend on the weight of the order - orders below 2kg will be by Royal Mail 2nd Class Recorded, over 2kg will be by Courier.

This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discounts and we reserve the right to recharge the shipping on any orders where items are returned and the value of the order then does not reach the £35 limit.

If you want your order sooner, you will still be able to select and pay for 1st Class Recorded, 2nd Class Recorded, Parcelforce or Special Next Day Delivery.


You can use Special Delivery™ Next Day for delivery Monday to Friday, except bank holidays or public holidays. Please order before 1pm for this service.

If you need your item sent over the weekend, you can also arrange a guaranteed Saturday Delivery.  Please select the Saturday option on checkout.  Order must be received by 1pm on a Friday for this service.


Charges for International Orders are weight based and are actual shipping cost.  All International Orders under 2kg will be posted by International Airmail Signed For and can take between 5-7 days for Europe or 7-10 days for Rest of the World.  Postage for orders over 2kg - will be shipped via Parcelforce Worldwide, FedEx or UPS.


After 1st January 2021 Uk left European Union.  This means your shipment may be subject to import duties and taxes.  Every country taxes items differently so we advise you to check with your own Country as to what Duty or Taxes will be charged at point of entry.

Because of additional security employed by the US and delayed delivery up to 3-4 weeks, we no longer ship to USA
