Books are divided into different delivery time classes. The estimated time before dispatch is shown (in working days) next to each book. Working days means every day of the year except Saturdays, Sundays, other public holidays, Midsummer's Eve, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. If a problem arises with your order, we will notify you.
We only offer complete delivery. If you have books from different delivery time classes in your shopping basket, the whole order waits for the slowest book in the order before it will be shipped. The shipping charge is SEK 25 within Sweden for Standard Shipping (Snabb frakt). There's no shipping charge if you select Free shipping (Fri frakt), but this delivery type is slower. Outside Sweden, the delivery cost is based on the actual postage fees from the shipping companies.
Note that an order that is split for a reason other than your choice of delivery option (only for Corporate clients) never incurs any additional costs.
