kyklà Terms and Conditions

We are a small publishing initiative operating as a not-for-profit in Athens. We put effort into thinking distribution differently, bypassing larger distribution conglomerates in order to pay contributors and authors. Before you place your online order with us, we suggest you have a look at our Selling Points, there may be a supplier nearer to you, or simply ask your local bookstore.

1. Shipments
Your shipment is handled on a daily basis by our fulfillment company Süd-Ost Services in Waldkirchen, Germany. Average shipping time is 7 business days, do contact us before placing your oder if you are willing to pay for a faster method. 
Delays may occur due (post)pandemic malaise, Brexit and other restrictions around borders. Our shipping prices as indicated at the check out, are flat rates. The shipping cost for sending out 1 copy, is the same as shipping 2, 3 or 5 copies. Free shipping as of 5 copies. In working with flatrates, we make it possible for people further from the usual logistic centers to have access to our books. We recommend you to use the postal address where you can ensure that someone can receive the package during working hours: 9:00–20:00 from Monday to Friday. 

2. Customs
Please note that you may be responsible for import duties and taxes on your international order. Additionally, some orders may experience customs delays.
