We’ve reduced our overseas delivery charges!
Pay just £10 for shipping from anywhere in the world!
We have changed our delivery charges to make buying Hama Beads more affordable for our overseas customers.
If you live outside the UK, you can now shop for your Midi Beads or Mini Beads safe in the knowledge that there’s one flat rate of £10 for buying Hama Beads and having them delivered to you anywhere in the world – up to 2kg.
Unfortunately, if your order weighs more that 2kg, we are unable to send it using our usual service contract with Royal Mail in the UK, and instead will use a courier service, such as Parcelforce or UPS to deliver your parcel.
Courier services are slightly more expensive, yet tend to be faster, and this is why you may find when adding a particular item to your basket that your order has reached the tipping point that takes the total weight over 2kg – knocking it from the standard £10 overseas delivery rate to a higher charge.
You may wish to pay the extra, or remove the item to keep delivery at £10 and order more Hama Beads another day.
Remember that we never intend to profit from shipping charges – they are always a reflection of what it costs us to send Hama Beads abroad from the UK.
Before now, our shipping rates were much higher for a number of countries and we found that this just wasn’t affordable for many customers.
We have therefore researched our average shipping costs over a number of months and we are happy to say that the majority of countries will greatly benefit from our new, lower charges!
Meanwhile, UK customers continue to benefit from free delivery on orders over £50, as well as the option to receive your order Next Day guaranteed, if desired.
We aim to please!
