VAT Changes
Due to changes in shipping to the EU, we are unable to send shipments that would require a VAT import fee. This unfortunately means orders that do not meet the minimum of $150 US dollars cannot be processed at this time (orders over this amount are charged tax by your country when they go through customs). As a small business we do not have the ability to implement all the reporting, collecting and regulations required.

Countries affected by the VAT change: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden.

Shipping Charges
Please select an international shipping method at checkout. We offer USPS First Class International, USPS Priority International and UPS Worldwide options. Our international shipping charges are based on the weight of the package and the cost of shipping to the destination country.

Phone numbers are required for international deliveries.

Paper Shipping
Large paper shipping is calculated at checkout based on real time shipping rates.

Insurance is currently only available for orders shipping with UPS Worldwide services. Orders of $150 of less will be charged additional if requested. Orders of $150.01 or more include insurance. We are unable to offer insurance on shipments sent through USPS International First class or USPS International Priority Post.

Duty/Import Tax
John Neal Books is not responsible for payments due for duty or tax. We are not able to calculate or estimate what may be due, this is calculated by the imported country.

Delivery Time
Airmail generally takes 2-3 weeks, depending on destination. Delivery is fastest to Canada and the UK.
