Consolidating and Separating Orders
We source the books that make up your order from a wide range of publishers and wholesalers, both in the US and overseas. A very wide selection of these titles is normally in stock in our store and many others can be obtained very quickly.
Our charges for shipping are based upon each order received, even if some items are not immediately available and have to be filled at a later date than the original delivery. In such cases, you will not add an additional charge for sending multiple shipments.
We are unable to add to an order once placed, but may ship two or more subsequent orders in one delivery if they are received in close time proximity.
We accept payment online by credit card: Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. You may also order by telephone, e-mail, or post, in which case we will send you a request for advance payment (pro-forma invoice) before we process your order. All prices are subject to change without notice. If you send payment which does not reflect the current price of items ordered, we will return your payment to you with a pro-forma invoice showing the correct total to be paid. Orders are not sent until payment is received in full.
Paying by Credit Card
Your card will only be charged when your order (in whole or part) is ready to ship. We reserve the right to pre-authorize your card for the full value of your order at the time we begin to process it.
Our website automatically passes your card details to a highly secure data centre maintained by our credit card processor. We are then enabled to charge or refund your card up to the maximum amount of your purchase without ever having access to your card details.
Shipping & Handling
Because of the large number of items we carry and the lack of easily accessible metadata for many of them, we are unable to provide accurate live quotes of shipping costs. Therefore, our charges are based on the value of your order prior to any applicable tax. In general, the shipping charges decrease as a percentage of your order total as that total increases. We are also happy to offer free shipping to customers in the USA on orders of $75 or more.
We are required to charge tax on orders shipped within the state of New York. The rate of sales tax (7%-8.875%) will be automatically based on the address to which you ask us to ship your order and shown at checkout.
All prices are in USD.
