Postage costs and Paypal
Postage is charged at a flat rate of £3 per order however many discs you buy. However, due to a change in the way Paypal operates, when you are compiling an order for more than one disc, it looks as if Paypal is adding £3 postage per disc. In fact when you finally place the order, it will only charge you £3 for postage, as it should be.
We apologise for this annoying change, and are trying to get Paypal to go back to the original system, but rest assured that in the end you will only be charged £3 postage.
If you are uncertain, please email us at info(at)anothertimbre.com letting us know which discs you want, and we can arrange for a direct payment.
Apologies for these problems which we are trying to resolve. This only seems to affect some people and we haven’t worked out why…..
