Orders usually ship within 4 business days.
Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG.
If your book order is heavy or oversized, we will let you know if extra shipping is required.
Please contact us for information on economical shipping rates from Thailand.
Overseas postage options include Surface or SAL (for books less than $150), Air, Speedpost or other service like DHL, UPS, etc.
The Royal Thai Post Office unfortunately has no surface mail service to certain Asian destinations, so we will send by SAL and will let you know if there are additional shipping costs.
Important Update: Due to Covid-19 issues, Thai Post no longer offers SAL, only Air Mail thus effectively doubling the cost of postage. Thai Post is showing profits this year. I will check the weight and airmail postage fee and confirm with you regarding your order.
Most orders are dispatched within three to four days of your order being accepted.
