Terms and Conditions


All stamp prices are in £ sterling and under the VAT Margin Scheme, VAT is not chargeable on our stamps. We also don't charge you extra for buying with a credit card and remember delivery is FREE on all orders (except Great Britain New Issues) so the prices you see on our site are the final prices you will pay.


Images shown against each item for sale are of the actual stamps that you will receive. Please be aware that they are not intended to be actual size and that colours and shades may vary due to photographic conditions and the actual screen you are using to view the site. If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact us for clarification. 

Out of Stock Items

All items are in stock when listed on our website. However in the unlikely event that an item on our site becomes out of stock following your purchase we will endeavour to provide a replacement of the same quality. We will of course contact you to make sure you are happy to proceed with the purchase. Please see below for our Returns procedures.

Returns and Refunds

If you are not happy with your order when you receive it please contact us by phone or email and we will do everything we can to help. If after speaking to us you still wish to return the order please ensure that the stamps are in the same condition as when you received them from us and where possible use the original packaging to protect the stamps.

Returns should be made within 14 days of you receiving your order. Refunds will be processed via Paypal and your account or original card used will be credited.

Our Price Match


If you see the stamps that you are about to buy or have bought (up to 2 weeks from date of purchase) at a lower price then we will match the price you have seen.

To take advantage of our PRICE MATCH please contact us with the details of the stamp(s), the competitor's details and the price they are charging. Please note that the stamp(s) in question should be in stock and available for immediate delivery from the competitors.

In addition, where price matching is with items that are advertised on an online auction site then there are 2 simple conditions. 1. items being matched against must be available as "buy it now" and 2. the seller should have feedback of at least 500.

This PRICE MATCH applies for 2 weeks from the date of your purchase.

Site Security

We take your privacy very seriously at The Glasgow Stamp Shop.

We use SSL security for the login process on our site so you can be confident that your login details are secure.

When you come to the checkout stage of our website you will be transferred temporarily to the Paypal website. They will handle the payment transaction thus helping ensure that all your important card details are secured by them. This means that Paypal takes the payment from your card or bank account directly and your payment details aren't shared with us.

We will store your name and address details details for the sole use of The Glasgow Stamp Shop. We will NEVER pass your details to any other company.
