Postage & Packaging Details
UK Postage & Packaging
Thank you for popping by to view my delivery options.
I aim to post your order to you within 1 working day.
During sale periods this may extend to 2 working days.
I dispatch parcels Monday to Friday. Orders received after 1pm Friday will be dispatched on the following Monday.
At the check out you are able to choose from the following options:
Small Parcel up to 2kg*:
- Royal Mail Second Class - £3.55
- Royal Mail First Class - £4.55
- Royal Mail Second Class - £7.35
- Royal Mail First Class - £8.15
Medium Parcel 10kg - 20kg*:
- Royal Mail Second Class - £10.85
- Royal Mail First Class - 12.95
*Please note that the cost and weight of the packaging materials is also taken into account when calculating postage/shipping costs. I've recently shifted to using more paper packaging in my internal protective packaging and biodegradable postage bags for my exterior packaging in order to reduce the use of single use plastic in my parcels.
Orders over £40
I offer FREE (to you) POSTAGE on orders over £40 (UK mainland only) or I offer the option to share the Postage Costs 50/50 split.
These days, due to huge businesses offering free postage to their customers (because they can afford to because they get special postage rates due to the amount of parcels they process) little businesses like my Cotton Pod are expected to follow suit. Most people don't realise that the FREE postage offer actually means that I pay your postage for you.
In 2021 I decided to begin an initiative offering customers the opportunity to share Postage Costs with me on orders over £40. That way I get to reward you a little bit for your larger purchase without getting too much of a hit to my pocket. I'm delighted by the amount of customers who have chosen this option and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining in :-). It really makes my day when you choose to share :-).
I hope my guide to Postage and Packaging is clear, thanks for popping by to have a read.

Europe International Standard Shipping
Regrettably, due to uncertainty regarding customs tariffs Cotton Pod will no longer be shipping to customers in the EU from January 2021.
We do however post to Ireland using Royal Mail's International Standard Shipping service and the price is calculated by the weight of your parcel, including the packaging materials and correspondence.
PLEASE NOTE: you may need to pay Customs Charges in order to receive your goods, these charges are your responsibility. You can find out more about Customs Duties and charges on the Revenue website, click here.
