CHRISTMAS DELIVERY DEADLINES- DPD NEXT DAY DELIVERY AVAILABLE
DPD NEXT DAY DELIVERY AVAILABLE
- New DPD-based faster delivery for time critical items
- Recommend not using Royal Mail 2nd Class after 15th December for Christmas Gifts
- Royal Mail 1st Class option remains, but cannot be guaranteed to take 24 hours
- UK orders over £35 need to select DPD delivery at checkout (£7) if the next day service is required
Nobody needs to explain that this year has been a bit odd for many aspects of life, but as an online business, COVID-19 has had a big impact on postal deliveries. We have had customers receiving parcels after two or three weeks, instead of the normal 48 hours on Royal Mail services, due to these issues.
Information we have from our own customers, but also deliveries to us personally suggests that this situation is continuing, with illness, social distancing and massive increase in online sales meaning that Royal Mail is struggling at times to fulfil deliveries daily in some places.
To combat this we are recommending that after orders placed from today (15th December) onwards are at minimum using Royal Mail 24 (1st Class) at £3.95 as we cannot guarantee that Royal Mail 48 (2nd Class) at £2.95 will get there in time. If the parcel is time critical then we are offering the next day delivery service at £7, which will be using the DPD Next Day (carbon neutral) service.
If a UK order is over £35 it defaults to free 2nd Class delivery at checkout, if you need it urgently then DPD delivery is available for £7 if you manually change it at checkout.
Thank you for shopping with Non Plastic Beach and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
