COVID-19 CONTACTLESS DELIVERY PROCESS:
Here at Poundshop.com we work with DPD to safely and efficiently deliver your parcels straight to your home. To comply with the governments advice to stay at a 2 metre distance, we have changed the way you will receive your packages:
1. Our driver will maintain a 2 metre distance and place your parcel at your doorway.
2. As proof of delivery, our driver will take a photograph of the parcel with your door open (don't worry, you do not need to be in this photograph), or if you are self-isolating, you can simply tell our driver where to leave your parcel on the DPD app or website using the 'Leave in a Safe Place' option.
We hope that our new contactless delivery process will enable our customers to shop at their leisure in a safe and protected manner.
Thank you for your support during this time.

Minimum Checkout Spend
Unfortunately, like many other businesses in our position, we have had no choice but to impose a minimum order basket value. The reason for this is simply to ensure that we can maintain our exceptional #Brandsyouloveforless offers.
Whilst we experienced a significant rise in panic buying and an unprecedented quantity of orders throughout the Pandemic, our teams have worked around the clock to ensure that no prices of any item or good that we have on offer increased with the demand. We did, however; to be fair to both existing and new customers, increase our minimum order basket value to £30 and restricted the quantities of certain essential items in a single transaction.
Going forward, we will continue to review both of these policies on a regular basis, but in the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will of course share any updates with you as appropriate in the future.
