Can I Save Postage By Ordering Multiple Copies?

Unfortunately we've just got a giant pile of CDs in jiffy bags and a huge sheet of stamps. This means that even if you order multiple copies, they'll each arrive in their own separate parcel. Hey, it works for

Why is postage not a separate item in Paypal ?

Due to the way that Paypal calculates orders for multiple copies we have to include the postage in the actual item cost. So don't worry, its already figured in there.

Why has my Paypal transaction shown up as 'Andy Krouwel'?

Due to technical difficulties all payments go to Andy for now, who is Retro Survival's publisher. This may change in the near future when the technical difficulties are sorted out.
