Dear Valued Customer,
We are pleased to inform that we are now providing shipping internationally as well.
We actively provide shipping to United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, United Arab Emirates, and India, while we can ship to other parts of the world as well (from our Pakistan warehouse).
We also stock inventory in our U.S. and U.K. fulfillment centers, inventory from which will soon be up on our website. They will be labeled as ‘Imports’, ‘Factory’ or ‘Original’ items. We’ll first attempt to fulfill any international orders from there. You can also pre-order with us and get DVD/Blu-ray releases early.
Please note that Lollywood, Bollywood, and Turkish films or TV Shows are only stocked in our Pakistan warehouse.
Any MODs (Manufactured On-Demand) movie titles or TV Shows are also shipped out through our logistics partners in Pakistan. Please note that our international rates for products are different (when shipping out of Pakistan); based on exchange rates, shipping cost, business opportunity and customer demand.
[When shipping out of Pakistan,] Prices start from USD 5/DVD for in-stock items, and shipping cost can vary anything between USD 70-100 for 1 kg package. MODs will cost twice as much.
DVD prices may vary in some cases (e.g., if exchange rates change).

Actual Delivery Time = Processing Time + Shipping Time
Split order policy
Any order weighing over 2kg, will be split into multiple 2kg packages.
Our website now reflects prices in both Pakistani Rupee (PKR or Rs.) and US Dollar currency (USD). We have provided a currency converter on site for our customers to view prices in currency of their choice. There maybe data corrections needed in some cases; as it’s a fairly new feature.
Note for International Customers
You must checkout in USD currency. If you didn’t use USD, please go back to the Cart page, switch currencies, and then checkout. For international orders, we collect payment through other payment options (i.e., Skrill, Payoneer, Xoom [for US] or via local bank transfers for EUR, GBP, and AUD currencies), information on which will be provided via email. Please be informed that once you have placed your order, our representative will review and may respond with revised a invoice based on international rates, where applicable.
Pre-Order DVDs / Blu-rays
We get our new releases well in advance from the film studios. For example if a film was being released on the Monday 29th of January 2018, we would normally have every customer and new release shipped by Tuesday January 23rd, Wednesday 24th at the VERY latest. The only time this isn’t the case is if there has been a problem with the supplier and we haven’t received stock which isn’t often.
We do not offer online payments through website checkout process yet. We provide payment options via ‘Direct Bank Wire Transfer’, ‘Skrill’, and ‘Payoneer’, details of which are provided once orders are confirmed, and terms are agreed upon.
Cash on Delivery is only available for Domestic orders; for up to PKR 4500/- only. Payment will be taken upfront for orders with greater value.
If you have a specific requirement, or feel that the shipping cost is too much, please contact us directly, and we will do our best to serve you. Understanding our shipping rates maybe tricky, so you may contact us if you are getting outrageous shipping rate during checkout.
As an example, if you choose one item that is in Pakistan warehouse, and one that is in UK warehouse; then the shipping cost you’ll see will be a sum of 0.5kg rates from each origin.
We’ll dedicate a separate page for Shipping rates soon.
