I had been told by a Topshop source that international shipping was experiencing slow glitches but here is confirmed online proof. Taken from the Topshop help page:
TOPSHOP.COM delivers to all United Kingdom, United States, Australian and Republic of Ireland addresses. Unfortunately at this time we cannot take orders for delivery to the Channel Islands or BFPO addresses.
United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland
- Standard £4 delivery charge
- Express £5 delivery charge (UK only)
Delivery is free for orders over £100
United States of America and Australia
- Standard £10
Well there it is. Loosen up your purse strings, all you Topshop fans in the States and down under. I feel a tad sympathetic for people who live else where though. Clearly, they are testing the waters tentatively by shipping to what they feel are their potentially biggest markests. Still, getting deliveries over to France shouldn't really be too much of a hardship. Afterall, Paris is far closer to London and easier to get to than the Shetland Islands all the way up in Scotland!
