    That's £20 + VAT as far as I know i.e. £24.
    My £43 order this week came through with Free next day DPD, but failed to deliver yesterday... Arrived fine this am

    Yeah, it always used to be £20 exc VAT for free shipping.

    Haven't bought from Scan for years myself, but that was always the minimum.

    Thank you guys, I've bought an i9 9900k and now a thermaltake psu and had to pay delivery for both, I got intouch with scan about being a bit tech member and got this message back
    "Hi there,

    Do you have any correspondance to suggest this, we offer free carriage on hexus accounts but i am unaware of any with Bit tech.

    Kind Regards"

    If you pay by Paypal but the Paypal login email address is different to the one you use to sign in to Scan they charge you shipping. They're always refunded me without question when I've pointed this out.

    Edit: Just looked back through my recent correspondence with Scan. In connection with this Paypal issue they also 'lose' these type of transactions in their accounting system. If HMRC were to discover this I'm sure their system would be audited as apparently HMRC don't like transactions to go missing. I did point this out to them.

    Seeing as how you move money in and out of PayPal like it's a normal account, it'd be a very good place to scrape some money into another account, where it could just "rest"
