Publications FAQ

1. What percentage of profits from this shop go to Prostate Cancer UK?

100% of profits come to Prostate Cancer UK for all items.

2. How do I know my order has been successful?

We’ll send you an email to confirm that your order has been placed. We’ll then email you to let you know that your order has been sent out to you. Whilst you should normally receive your order within a week with standard delivery, please do allow up to 10 working days. We won’t take any payment from your debit or credit card until we have sent your order for delivery.

3. Can I choose a different delivery address?

Yes. You'll be offered this option during the payment and shipping process.

4. I'm having trouble logging in. Help?

The Prostate Cancer UK Shop is an entirely self-contained system within the Prostate Cancer UK website and has a separate access system. This means your username and password for other parts of the Prostate Cancer UK website won't work here unless you've created a Shop account with the same details. We're sorry about this inconvenience and suggest that, for simplicity, you simply choose the same username and password for the Shop as you use for the rest of the Prostate Cancer UK site.

If this isn't the problem and you've simply forgotten your Shop password, you can choose to reset your password yourself. And if you're completely stuck, just email us at shop@prostatecanceruk.org and we'll be pleased to help.

5. Can I get a discount for bulk purchase?

We're really sorry, but unfortunately this is not possible. As we're trying to raise money for our vital work supporting people affected by prostate cancer, it's unlikely to be in the interest of the people we're supporting to reduce the profit. We hope you understand.

6. Will you send me products free so I can sell them and raise money for you?

Thanks so much for your interest in raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, we're delighted! Although the Shop can't provide products free, Prostate Cancer UK does provide fundraisers with items such as pin badges that can be sold to raise money for us. Just contact us here, email us at supportercare@prostatecanceruk.org, or ring us on 0800 082 1616.

7. How much does delivery cost?

To continue funding lifesaving research and support services for men and their families affected by prostate cancer from the profits we make from the shop, we have to charge a delivery fee to cover the costs of postage and packaging.

Orders over £35 are delivered FREE.

    UK Standard 

  • Postage and packing is £3.95 to any UK address. 

We will process your order as soon as possible and most will be delivered in 3 to 5 working days. But please allow up to 10 working days for delivery.

However, we do try to ensure that the items are value for money - we're very aware that as you can't examine items in person you're having to take a leap of faith to purchase from us, so we try to ensure you won't be disappointed and will be really pleased by your purchase.

8. Why don't you sell ....?
