Our orders are shipped from our UK warehouse as standard.

Placing an order

Your order confirmation
• Once you have placed an order, you will receive an automated confirmation email detailing the items you have ordered. 
• If we establish that availability of any title ordered is not as stated on the website, you will be notified directly, and your card will be refunded for that portion of the order.

Our retail price and currency
• We are only able to take payment in GBP Sterling at the GBP price we have set.
• We list the price of each book in multiple currencies as an indication of the recommended retail price for other retailers.
• The calculation of the price in the three different currencies is based on a significant number of variables, not just the exchange rate at the date of setting the retail price. Market fluctuations may further impact the differential between the multiple currencies.
• We are not able to make any special accommodation for this differential or any fluctuations.
• Your bank or card issuer may impose additional charges for a payment taken in GBP and these must be borne by you.

Taxes and customs
When ordering goods for delivery you may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied once the goods reach the destination. Any such additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. We have no control over import duties and taxes and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Please contact your local customs office for further information.
