Shipping Rates & Policies

New In Chess tries to minimize the shipping rates for our customers. We only charge you, what the couriers or postal services will charge us. Quite often, we will charge you less.

To find out the exact amount you will have to pay for a shipment, please add your products to the cart. The shipping costs will be added automatically and can be viewed on the check-out page.

Free shipping (books only) for orders over €300 (Europe and Rest of World) or $350 (United States, Canada and Mexico). In the Netherlands free shipping for all orders over €65 (books only).

We ship all over the world. For logistical reasons, we do not ship physical chess products to Argentina, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Iran, Paraguay, Moldova, Namibia, North Korea, Russia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Ukraine. From these countries, you can only order our digital products, like eBooks.

Christmas & New Year

Please note that due to the holiday season there will be some disruptions to our regular service schedule. Orders placed between December 23 and January 2 will not be processed until January 3. This will result in an additional delay of approximately 6-8 business days. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the holiday season and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
