Searching for a book

What can I enter into the search field when choosing the option "keyword"?

When choosing the option "keyword", you can enter any combination of title, author or publisher in the search field. The order of entries is not important.

Can I also search for books which have not yet been published or are out of print?

Yes. We try to offer a price comparison for all books which have already been published as well as for books which are going to be published in the near future.

My search has revealed several books with the same title. Which book is the one I am looking for?

If your search has revealed several books with the same title, try to check for differences between other book features such as publisher, release date and cover type. Often you will find a difference there.

Which currency will be displayed for foreign suppliers?

The prices of foreign suppliers will also be displayed in your local currency. Due to fluctuations in the exchange rate and possible additional bank charges the price can only be an approximate value.

Why does the time taken to carry out a price comparison differ between searches?

In order to ensure we always supply you with the most up to date prices, our price comparison search contacts each bookstore for a real time price comparison. Since the response time from each bookstore varies, the time taken to carry out a price comparison differs between searches.

Can I also compare prices of audio books and e-books?

Yes. You can also compare prices of audio books and e-books.

What does dispatch time mean?

Dispatch time is the time a bookstore requires to process and assemble your order and dispatch it from their bookstore. This does not include the time your order will take to arrive once it has been dispatched.

Do the delivery costs shown include deliveries to foreign countries?

No. Delivery costs shown only include deliveries within the country. For international delivery costs, please refer to the website of your chosen bookstore.

Ordering process

What do I have to consider when choosing between different offers?

Apart from the total price which includes shipping costs, you should also consider:

  • The condition of the book (new, used (like new), used (very good),etc...)
  • Dispatch time (i.e. the time a bookstore requires to process and assemble your order and despatch it from their bookstore) and
  • Delivery time (i.e. the time your order will take to arrive once it has been despatched); please note that shipping time is often much longer for foreign bookstores.
