Shipping & Returns

Shipping Time

1. We try our best to ship orders paid through PayPal within the next business day. Others paid through cheques will be shipped as soon as payment is received and debited.
2. Pre-release orders or backorder items are shipped as soon as the product is released or when the item is restocked. Other than rare occasions all items that are processed online are in stock. If items are out of stock either it will either not display in our website or during processing you will be prevented from ordering that item. In the case that your order goes through you will be notified of the absence of the product before your order is shipped out.

Shipping Policies

Out of stock items are normally mentioned during the checkout process. However, if you have ordered an item(s) that we discover to be out of stock, you will be notified by email after we receive your order, and we will order the item(s) for you from the publisher at no additional cost. We do our best to ship all complete orders within 24 to 48 hours of receiving them. For orders with back-ordered items, we will make partial shipments based on the number of items on hand, estimated back-order time for missing items, etc. If you definitely do not want partial shipments but prefer to wait until the order is complete, please make a note in the Notes field of the order form. The total shipping charge for your order will remain the same whether we ship in single or multiple shipments. The only case in which this will not be true is if you make a special request to have items shipped as they are available. In this case, there may be a surcharge for each shipment on top of the normal shipping charges. Ghazali Bookstore is not responsible for items that are not received when shipped through Royal Mail without insurance.

We cannot guarantee delivery times unless you select guaranteed services.

Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.
