In an effort to even out the cost differences between shipping to the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, Aria PC has switched to a flat rate fee for Ireland as a whole. However, it’s asking Irish customers to show that it’s worth cutting into its profits, or the change will only be temporary.
For the next six weeks, shipping to both ROI and NI, will be £9.95 + vat, for orders weighing in at around 25KG. This nets you the 48 hour service from DPD, though Northern Ireland customers also get the option for a £1.99 next day delivery for smaller items via Royal Mail.
According to the Aria PC post on its forums, Irish customers have been clamouring for reduced shipping costs for years, so this is purely a trial period for now. However, “If we [Aria PC] see that Ireland is worth shipping to more often, we will implement this for the foreseeable future,” reads the Aria PC post.
