FAQs

How long will it take to ship my order?

** We're working through the recent orders as quickly as possible. There are slight delays due to the order volumes. Please be patient; it's unlikely that your order is lost or missing, we're working to get to your order as soon as possible**

UK "Express Delivery" orders placed before noon will be processed on the same working day and will be received on the next working day. Orders placed after noon will be processed on the next working day and received on the following working day. (Working days are Mon-Fri).

For standard deliveries, orders will be processed within 2-4 days. All UK orders are then shipped using the Royal Mail 48 Hour service. We therefore expect UK orders to arrive within approximately 1 week of you placing your order.

European and Worldwide shipping times vary however if you have waited more than 30 days please contact customer.services@danandphilshop.com

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping is based on what is in your cart and where it’s going to.

To check shipping costs for an order, simply place the items you want in your cart and head over to the checkout page.

Does my delivery have a tracking number?

If you're based in the UK, you can now select "Express Delivery". This is fully tracked service and you will receive your tracking number in your shipping confirmation email. We will be hoping to offer a fully tracked Express delivery option for European and Worldwide customers in the near future.

For Standard UK shipping and Europe / Rest of World shipping we use the lowest cost option. Unfortunately, you will not be provided with a tracking number. From listening to customers the priority is for the items to be well packaged but shipped at a low cost. This is why we don't currently use a fully tracked option for European and Rest of World orders although we're hoping to implement this as a shipping option in future.

Do I have to pay customs and import charges?

The Dan and Phil Shop team have been briefed to use the relevant customs paperwork that should limit any customs or import duties, if there are any at all. Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

Please be aware that your parcel can also be delayed by customs and subsequent charges can be applied. We have no control over this, and cannot supply any details why or for how long your parcel will be delayed.

What payment methods are accepted in the Dan and Phil shop?

The Dan and Phil shop currently uses PayPal to accept payments both via the normal Paypal page and with their credit card checkout system. PayPal is one of the safest and most recognised payment processors in the world and accepts most major credit and debit cards. You do not need to have an account to make purchases, but you will be redirected to PayPal's own secure payment pages at the checkout, so we never store or have access to your payment details. You can learn more about PayPal's security on their Secure Payment Services page.
