Please note that UK postcodes that fall within Zone D for parcels over 2kg will also incur an additional postage fee.
1.6: Do you deliver on Saturdays?

However, Royal Mail state that despite aiming to deliver 93% of mail on time, they are unable to guarantee that every parcel will arrive within the stated time frames.
Royal Mail also advises that to claim your parcel as being lost, you must wait 10 working days.

Remember to check your tracking number for details on the whereabouts of your parcel – if Royal Mail has attempted delivery, it will say so in your tracking information.
If your Royal Mail order hasn’t reached you in 10 working days, please contact us at email@example.com so that we can provide you with guidance in retrieving your parcel.
If your order is over 2kg it will be dispatched with DHL. We advise that this delivery service takes 1-2 working days, after the day of dispatch.

1.8: My order was sent back to you. Can you resend it?

1.9: The Royal Mail tracking number for my order isn’t recognised, why?
A: Your order is only recognised on the Royal Mail tracking system once it has been collected from our warehouse and scanned by a Royal Mail driver.
If you receive an email confirming that your item has been shipped, please note that your parcel will not be recognised until later that evening.
1.10: Can my parcel be delivered to my neighbours if I’m not in?
A: If no one is available to receive your order at the shipping address provided, both DHL and Royal Mail should automatically attempt to leave your parcel with a neighbour or in a safe place
However, please note that you cannot specify which neighbouring address that you would like your parcel to be delivered to – DHL will deliver to an address either side of the shipping address, and Royal Mail will often do the same.
Please also be aware that occasionally we receive reports of postmen leaving parcels with a distant neighbour on the same street as the shipping address, instead of a next door neighbour. If your order tracking information states that your parcel has been delivered to a neighbour, please check with all neighbours before contacting us regarding your order.
1.11: Can I get next day delivery, guaranteed?
A: Although Royal Mail aim to deliver 93% of 1st Class mail the next working day after posting, they're unable to provide a guaranteed service on the services Popaball provide.
1.12: My Royal Mail order tracking says that my parcel is with a neighbour/has been delivered, but I have no card to indicate this. What do I do?
A: Often, the postman will automatically leave a package with a neighbour if no one is in to receive the parcel at the shipping address provided.
Alternatively, the postman could have left your parcel in a safe place at the shipping address provided.
Occasionally, postmen forget to leave cards to indicate where they have left a parcel. In instances like these, it is important that you firstly, check the area around your property and check with all of your neighbours to see if you can find your parcel.
If the parcel cannot be found after doing so, you need to contact your postman or local Royal Mail depot for further information on the whereabouts of your parcel.
Failing that, you can make a formal complaint or enquiry about the delivery service you have received. Royal Mail’s customer service number is 0345 774 0740. Alternatively, there's an online form you can fill in:
