Customer Services: Ordering, Returns, Privacy

The Megalithic Portal online shop is run as a non-profit making venture, all proceeds are put back into running costs and development of the Megalithic Portal web resource, which is very expensive to keep running due to the size and complexity of the site and the high number of visitors we receive. You can help support our ongoing work by joining our society for just £10. You can add this in as part of an existing shopping cart order.

On ordering you will be e-mailed a confirmation and receipt from your selected payment processor, Nochex or Paypal. We will also e-mail you personally within a couple of days to let you know the delivery time. We carry most items in stock and usually send out orders within 2 working days, we will inform you if any parts of your order will be delayed or are not available.
