INTERNET BOOKSHOP: SELLING BOOKS SINCE 1998
PO Box 176, Annandale NSW 2038, Australia.
Phone: (02) 9550-1258 (late afternoon or message).
Locate the book in our database search (on our home page) and place it in the shopping basket. Follow the checkout instructions. An option is available for you to receive a quote for the total cost, including postage.
We currently offer 20% discount on the total price (including postage) if you order two or more books. This applies only if you order directly from us, and not via third-party websites (such as Abebooks or Books and Collectibles, which charge us a hosting fee for our books).
SECONDHAND BOOKS AND THE GST
We have currently decided to voluntarily drop our registration for Goods & Services Tax (GST). Therefore GST is not included in the prices of books sold to Australian customers. However, if you are registered for GST, the Tax Office has determined that you can assume GST has been paid on secondhand goods. Of course, books can often still be claimed as tax deductions.
POSTAGE AND PACKING
(AND THE MYTH OF "FREE POSTAGE")
All our books are expertly wrapped and placed in padded envelopes, or in envelopes and boxes containing bubble-wrap. Postage is charged at cost. We generally post books by surface mail within Australia (3 to 7 days delivery). Express Post is also available. For overseas customers, all books are posted by Air Mail via Australia Post. We do not recommend sea mail from Australia as delivery time is often three or four months, and delivery problems are difficult to track.
REFUND POLICY & LOST BOOKS
If you are not satisfied that a book has been correctly described, and you notify us within a reasonable time (no more than three weeks after you would normally receive the book by post), we will issue a full (100%) refund. We may request that you return the book first.
Credit card payments can also be made using the PayPal secure server (www.paypal.com). Open up a free account with PayPal (linked to your cheque or credit card), and then send the money from your card to our PayPal account (see below).
AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS: We accept personal cheques, bank cheques and money orders (postal notes).
OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: We do not accept personal cheques, bank cheques and money orders in foreign currency. These take up to 6 weeks to clear, and a high currency conversion fee ($10 Australian, or more) must be added, which our bank charges to convert your payment into Australian currency.
VISITING OUR SHOP
From June 2005, we have traded as an online business only. Therefore, sorry - visits to our shop to browse our stock are not available at this time.
