Where is my order? 

Clearly there are some issues with the current Royal Mail strike action.

Currently with Royal Mail strike action we are seeing delays in goods arriving. This is because for every strike there is a knock on effect when they get back to work.

There is nothing we can do to chase your order once it has been sent.

These are difficult times for us as retailers when all we want to do is get your music to you, so we do ask you to be patient as this is totally out of our control.

If you have received a shipment notice, then your order is on its way.

We currently don't have a cost effective alternative to Royal Mail.

We could use a courier company, but that would increase the price of your music, and we are passionate about keeping our prices as low as possible to give you the customer the best deal.

I'm looking at my order on your site and it's not shown as shipped.

If you created an account with us and signed up for email or text alerts then you will have received confirmation of your order being shipped. Our system does send an automatic email when we ship. Check your spam box to check if the email has landed there.

It's been 2 weeks and my order hasn't arrived

Please be patient, if we have shipped it, then it will make it to you.

(But be aware if Royal Mail continue to strike then things may take longer)

My order has been shipped but hasn't arrived. Can I cancel and get a refund?
