Export customers within the EU, with a VAT number will be exempt from VAT on all products but must provide a copy of this documentation prior to order placement.

Customers are reminded that first orders must be over £200 net and that this will entitle carriage free shipping. On completion of the first order you will also automatically be issued with an account number which will have a prefixed BBD -it will be most helpful to quote this going forward in any communication and payments. All accounts are proforma and you can make payment at checkout or choose to pay by bank transfer.
At checkout you will have the option to select a delivery address which can be the same as your invoice address or from any of your stored delivery addresses or you can type in any other unique delivery address at that point. In addition, there is a box available for you to enter your reference number and a box for any special instructions that we should be aware of e.g. your courier is collecting the order, packing instructions, unusual shop opening days/time.
Baby Brands Direct offers a drop shipping service to registered customers and recommends this service for large or high value items that retailers cannot always keep in stock. As goods are dispatched, the retailer will receive an e-mail notification with the invoice and the tracking number will be detailed within it; the goods going to the consumer will be shipped with no paperwork. Please include the customer telephone number in special instructions if you wish for them to receive delivery notifications by text.
Our product price does not change for drop shipping, but our administration, packaging and carriage fee is slightly higher than if you were placing an order to be delivered to your store. Carriage is quoted per delivery address and not per product but larger items like cot beds, dressers and wardrobes may be subject to a per box surcharge applied automatically at checkout. Please note we do not ship to BFPO addresses. Overseas customers are always charged carriage per box and the fixed rate will depend on the Zone your country falls in. Drop shipping is usual at a surcharge of £5 per box (in addition to the standard country rate). Retailers will automatically be charged for one box at checkout on which VAT is applicable. We will contact you for payment on additional boxes (if applicable) once your order is packed.
Please note that we would advise against planning to sell items that are sold in pack quantities for drop shipping as we are unable to break down sets. If dispatched goods cannot be delivered by our courier (either because no-one was at home or the wrong address details were given), we will attempt to contact you before the goods are routed back to us. If they do come back we will need to re-charge for a re-attempt at delivery.
