Do you want to shop even smarter? Ordered before 16.00h on a working day will be delivered the next day. Have you placed an order under the amount of €70,00 followed by another order within a few hours? Then you can combine the two into one package, cutting down on shipping costs or even cancelling them completely - depending on the total order value. Combining orders is a procedure you can do yourself on the payment page as long as this option is visible. When the option isn’t visible anymore, the timeframe to combine orders has expired.
