What is Ballistic's refund poilcy
Subject to circumstances we may offer refunds prior to shipment. Once an order has been shipped, the sale is final and no refund will be given, unless the goods are faulty.

How much will shipping be?
There are many variables involved in working out the shipping cost, including which books, where they are going, and how they are going. The shipping cost is calculated and displayed during the checkout process, before the credit card details are entered.

We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information.
