FAQs
 
  • Are your books second hand?

    No, all our books are new.

     
  • I received an email saying - “Your payment failed, your order has not been paid for and cannot be dispatched/collected. Please contact us to arrange payment” – what shall I do?

    A payment can fail for two reasons: either the card was declined because payment exceeded its balance or part of the information entered is incorrect.

    In order to prevent fraud information is crosschecked: the post code has to match with the rest of your billing address, the three-digit (four-digit for Amex) security number on the back of your card must be entered correctly and, if your card is 3-D security enabled, you must enter the information required.

    What you can do. You can place the order again, making sure you enter the correct information (check your billing address on a card statement), or you can call us and pay over the phone.

     
  • What happens if an item is out of stock? When will I be refunded?

    We are open seven days a week and process most orders on the same day. If an item is out of stock we can void your card transaction on the day of the purchase.

    If the order was placed after closing time (7pm Monday-Saturday, 6pm on Sunday and most bank holidays), we won’t be able to void your card transaction, but this will “expire” within a few days and the funds will be returned to your account. This is the result of how payments are processed: after an order has been placed your money is kept “on hold” without being transferred to our bank account. Only if we can fulfill the order we'll transfer the money.

     
  • How long will it take to receive my books?

    Parcels under 2 kg are posted by Royal Mail second class and usually take 1-3 working days to be delivered.

    Parcels heavier than 2 kg are posted using a courier (myHermes) and usually take 2-5 working days. You’ll be able to track your parcel online: https://www.myhermes.co.uk/

     
  • I paid for expedited delivery, can you guarantee next day delivery?

    Expedited delivery parcels under 2 kg are posted by Royal Mail First Class. Most items are delivered within 1 working day, but we cannot guarantee this.

     

    Expedited delivery parcels over 2 kg are sent by MyHermes next day delivery service. Items will be delivered the following working day only if orders have been processed by noon (time of the last collection).

    For example, if you placed your order just a few minutes before noon on a Saturday, your parcel will not be collected until the Monday morning and delivered to you only on the Tuesday.

     
  • I'd like to order several books. How much postage will you charge me?

    Postage is calculated by adding up the weight of the items in your basket and taking into account their prices. Ordering more books may reduce the postage you are charged (try adding/removing books from your basket).
