Delivery issues

Because books will often not fit through letterboxes they will not be left by the Post Office. You should receive a card saying they were unable to deliver - but these cards are not always left. In the event of non-delivery please check with your local sorting office to see if the books are there and awaiting collection. If you have done this and have still not received you book please email admin@redplanetzone.com.

We aim to dispatch all books or the day of ordering or the next working day.

There are a number of stages to our system. Please check that you have received a confirmation of your order by email from Worldpay (i.e. that you have paid using their secure e-commerce gateway). If you have not received an email from Worldpay you have probably not been charged for the goods and your order has failed for some reason. If you wish to confirm this please email info@redplanetzone.com

Once payment of your order is processed you will receive an email from Red Planet Publishing Ltd detailing your order. Please check these details. If any of them are incorrect please email info@redplanetzone.com as soon as possible.
