Shiny Games is focused on making its range of products available to gamers within the United Kingdom and Europe; increasingly gamers from further afield are choosing to shop with us. We are currently revising the international prices on our webstore. If it doesn’t seem to be giving you a reasonable price for overseas deliveries, please contact us for your delivery options and quotes.
From 17th January 2018, we have simplified our UK delivery charges to make them clearer to customers and resolve technical issues with software we were previously using to determine the correct price. We continue to offer the best prices we can to customers, and our charges are modelled closely on the cost to us of shipping; however, they are no longer tied to a specific carrier.
Standard Delivery: This is a 2-3 day delivery service via either Royal Mail or our chosen courier service. The cost is £3.00 for parcels that weigh up to 2kg (including packaging) and £6.00 for orders over that weight. Delivery timescales are not guaranteed.
Signed For Standard Delivery: As above, but the delivery company must get a signature from someone either at the address or a neighbour that they leave the order with. The cost is £4.00 for parcels that weigh up to 2kg (including packaging) and £7.50 for orders over that weight.
We do not currently offer an express service, but if you require your order for a specific date please let us know and we will try and accommodate your situation.
We currently offer a choice of Royal Mail delivery methods at the checkout. For international orders, Royal Mail International Standard is the basic delivery option. It should get your order to to reasonably quickly but without any tracking information. We also offer Tracked & Signed and Tracked options if you want more visibility of how your order is doing in it’s journey to you.
Note that we are currently revising our European delivery charges with an aim to provide much cheaper prices for heavier orders via our webstore.
Free Delivery (UK Only)
Free delivery is available on all orders with a value of £75 or more within the United Kingdom. Orders sent by Free Delivery will be sent in the same way as for Standard Delivery.
Occasionally, we may also offer free delivery on orders of a lower value for a limited time with the use of a voucher code. These voucher codes will normally be provided to customers who have signed up for our email newsletter; you can sign up for this at the bottom of the page.
When you order qualifies for free delivery this will normally be automatically selected for you during the checkout process, but please ensure that this is selected if available or you may be charged for delivery.
We are currently not providing delivery prices for destinations outside Europe on our webstore. This is a temporary situation as we revise our international shipping charges, and International Delivery will soon be available again via the webstore. Until then contact us to get a quote for delivery based on what you wish to order.
Despatch and Delivery Times
We aim to despatch all orders within two business days of receipt and payment. Over 90% of our orders go out within 24 hours. Should you order something that is marked out of stock on our website we will need to get it from our distributor first, which may take up to five additional days.
If we become aware that any part of the process will fall outside these timescales, we will make you are of this as soon as possible via email.
If your order includes preorders, then delivery of the whole order will not normally take place until the preordered product becomes available for delivery. We may, at our discretion, ship the rest of your order sooner but if you want to ensure that you get the non-preorder items as soon as possible, it’s best to make your preorder separately; you may pay more postage overall, but your in-stock items will not be delayed.
