Shipping & Returns


2KG AnPost Shipping Note: Express International packet is an AnPost service that ships 2kg packets around the world. Normally when an order exceeds that weight additional packets are posted with some of the contents of the order split between them. However certain items are not possible to ship if they are individually heavier than 2kg. An example is the Chess Case with drawers as that weighs 3.5kg. Prince August may cancel orders or refund the cost of the chess set if part of a larger order if such items are included, and no alternative shipping option is available to switch too for similar postal costs.

Returns Policy

You may return items within
14 days of receipt of delivery for a full refund. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer and will not be refunded except in the case of a faulty or incorrect item (e.g. wrong product number or duplicate order). Please email us prior to shipping any product back and provide us a return shipping quote. Return postage can be more expensive than the original postage. Return postage must be by the most economical means available. Returned items (excluding items found to be faulty through use) must be in a resalable condition with original packaging and must be reasonably protected from damage in the return post. 

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. Refunds will be through the same payment method originally provided if possible. If paid via credit card or PayPal, refunds will be much faster.

If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Completed Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button.

Please choose from the options to clarify why you are returning the products. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.

Brexit Shipping: Tax rules depend on whether the shipping destination is within Britain or Northern Ireland. The U.K. Tax applied to British transactions at 20% and the Northern Ireland transactions retain the E.U. tax of 23%. This is determined by U.K. postcode. DPD is the default choice for shipping to British destinations. These rules are subject to updating.


We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations (aerosol paint cans for example).

When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. Weights less than 10 grams are rounded up to the 0.01 kg and weights will rise in factors of 10 grams. Example: 35 grams will be rounded up to 0.04 KG.

Lost items or damaged goods: If a problem arises due to careless shipping, for instance the package has been tampered with and items are missing, then please send us a photo of the packaging showing us the damage so we can use that for evidence when seeking redress with the shipper.

You are entitled to return the product for a refund within a maximum of 14 calendar days after receipt of your order. You will be refunded the price of the product, VAT and shipping cost, provided that the items are returned intact and in a resalable condition. Return shipping costs will not be refunded. Note that returns costs are quite often substantially more than our delivery cost.

Custom Charges: Tax is charged at checkout if applicable depending on shipping destination. This includes shipping tax (i.e.: tax on the cost of shipping). However this does not cover custom clearance costs, if applicable. That must be paid by the customer.
