Delivery Methods & Prices

Posh Eyes uses the Royal Mail for all UK and International deliveries. Posh Eyes recommends insured delivery (Special Delivery in the UK and International Tracked overseas). Alternative delivery methods can be selected during the checkout process.

Royal Mail Special Delivery is £8.70 on orders below 500gm.

UK customers have the option of free delivery (Royal Mail Packetpost) on all orders over £50.00 (exc. carriage). Please note that this service can take up to 10 working days to arrive from date of despatch from Posh Eyes.

For orders below £50.00, delivery is charged at cost (dependent upon weight). Posh Eyes does not profit from delivery. As an example, orders under £50.00 weighing below 1Kg, UK customers have the option of Royal Mail 2nd Class Post at £3.42 and Royal Mail Special Delivery at £8.70.

Please note: Glasses and Contact Lenses sent by Packetpost and Standard Delivery (Second Class Royal Mail) are not insured for loss or damage. Posh Eyes accepts no responsibility for losses in transit of glasses and contact lenses where Packetpost or Second Class Post is chosen by customers. To insure against loss, customers must choose Royal Mail Insured as the Class of Service at checkout.

Posh Eyes is not responsible for losses due to incorrect delivery addresses, including post codes.
