Delivery & Returns


All deliveries are processed and arranged by the individual sellers in close collaboration with il-lokal and in accordance with il-lokal’s delivery standards and procedures. 

Order Fulfilment

Individual sellers are responsible for timely parcel dispatch according to their submitted order fulfilment time for each product. Each seller’s order fulfilment time is publicly visible and made known to customers on product pages. 

Delivery Service Provider

We like to keep things local. We use MaltaPost as the postage service for orders from Malta-based sellers and country-specific postage providers for orders from Maltese sellers based abroad.

Every order is shipped via registered mail with a Tracking Number. 

The customer is provided with the Tracking Number of each order (or each product for orders including products from different sellers) via e-mail. 

Delivery Fee

Delivery fees are calculated and added to the order automatically upon checkout based on the delivery address and order weight. The delivery fee includes packaging and there will be no additional fees incurred by the seller or il-lokal. 

The delivery fee is based mainly on MaltaPost postage rates and is subject to change in accordance with MaltaPost postage rate updates. 

For sellers based outside of Malta, the shipping fee is calculated based on the country’s specific postage service and is automatically added to the order upon checkout. 

International Delivery 

We ship orders to all EU countries, USA, Canada, Australia and most Asian countries. The shipping fee for your destination will be calculated automatically upon checkout based on the weight of the order and the delivery address.
