How to enter BFPO Addresses

BFPO addresses must be entered into the fields in our online order form in a specific format, as shown below, ensuring that the BFPO number is entered into the postcode field:

Full name: Service Number, Rank, Name

Address line 1: Company

Address line 2: leave field blank

Town/City: Regiment

County: leave field blank

Postcode: BFPO ### (eg: BFPO 123)

Country: United Kingdom

Phone number: enter a contact number, either your own or the recipient's

We ask for a contact number in case there's a problem with delivery. If you don't want to enter one, type "N/A" in the relevant box. This will allow you to proceed.

Please note:When entering a BFPO address, if you've followed the guidelines above you may see messages under the "Town/City" and "Postcode" boxes asking for valid entries or that the entry in the "County" box is invalid. Please disregard these messages and click on the "Dispatch to this address" button.

Please note: BFPO addresses are eligible for free Super Saver Delivery. See terms and conditions.

Prohibited items

The BFPO website contains a list of goods which may not be dispatched to BFPO addresses: Prohibited Items.

Amazon delivery restrictions to BFPO addresses:

  • Items that cost 200GBP or more
  • Items that are heavier than 11KG
  • Items that have package size larger than 61 x 46 x 46 cm
  • Items that have a girth of 139cm or more

If you receive an error message during checkout, it means the item cannot be dispatched to a BFPO address.

Refunds

Customers who get items delivered to an International BFPO address can get their VAT refunded.

Customers who get items delivered to a UK BFPO address cannot get their VAT refunded. Your VAT refund request must be received within three months of the order being dispatched.


AFPO Addresses

Using the APO/FPO mail system we can only deliver within the US, not to forces outside the US.

If the item you want to purchase is offered by our American store, Amazon.com, you can order the item there and pay a local dispatch rate to have your item sent through the APO/FPO system. However, if you cannot purchase the item from Amazon.com, you can buy the item from Amazon.co.uk and ask for it to be delivered internationally to your APO/FPO address in the US. Please note that this method would involve dispatching your order from the UK to the US, and you will incur an international dispatch charge. See delivery rates.
