Ecat 172 June 2018

I can accept payment by sterling cheque, Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express or by direct British bank transfer. I can accept international bank transfers, but regret I will need to charge for costs imposed by banks for these transactions - typically a minimum of $30 or £15 (there is no such cost for British banks). Note, it is usually possible to arrange free international transfers through third party financial institutions.

Prices exclude postage and packing which are charged at cost. All books are insured.

Books sent inland will normally be sent first class and multiple orders may be sent in separate cartons if this is cheaper. Single books weighing over 1 kg may be sent second class.

Overseas orders will be sent by airmail via the Print Direct (formerly M-bag) system which is not tracked, but is cost efficient. The minimum weight for this service is 1.5 kilos which may mean that an order is bulked out with additional printed material. Bizarrely this added weight reduces the cost of postage. Print Direct really comes into its own for multi-book parcels.

Books can be sent by surface mail if preferred, but this is more expensive. Books can also be sent by a trackable service, but this will probably at least treble the cost of postage and can work out slower and from experience parcels sent "signed for" are more likely to go missing.

If books sell out and I need to re-stock, prices and descriptions may alter, but current prices will be shown on the main pages of the website.
