Unfortunately maximum shipping time to Australia is SUPER long. I think they must row it there in a dinghy. But some things have arrived quicker for some reason.

As mentioned, I've eagerly subscribed and still waiting for the first issue ordered a month ago. I hope you can improve on those overseas shipping prices. Not expecting you to match Amazon, but I don't remember ever paying such high postage for a single mag within the EU (or Europe, now). Perhaps Brexit is also to blame.

Took a look at the suggested Royal Mail's delivery aims website, and it mentions:

"International Economy - For heavier parcels that don't need to arrive in a hurry".

For south-eastern Europe at least, International Standard seems a better option according to this (definitively faster, cheaper too perhaps): Sending guide

International Standard:
An affordable service for everyday international mail
Max 2kg - Delivery aim 3 to 5 working days - From £1.70

International Economy:
For heavier parcels that don't need to arrive in a hurry
Max 2kg - Delivery aim 15 days - From £3.00

Thanks for looking into this, but you have to look deeper. Regardless of the description, International Standard for the size and weight of parcel we use (and we are very close to the weight limit for the bracket!) actually costs more to Europe. It's just cheaper to send a 10g letter by that service, hence the lower base price of £1.70.

Trust us, we picked the cheapest option so we don't have to pass that cost onto our customers

We'll obviously continue to review this, but at the moment it's the best option for us.

Nothing here in Ireland yet either. I e-mailed amiga addict. I think brexit customs is slowing up some parcels, possible standard mail ones, yet tracked ones from the uk have gotten to me rapidly. I am waiting on other parcels primarily of vintage toys... hah...

I hope my no°1 and no°2 will arrive soon. We are in a lockdown starting tomorrow so at least something to read will become handy.

Hope so Predseda, if you've been waiting a long time, check out our FAQ, we'll send replacements if they've taken longer than Royal Mail says they should.
