My order

How to cancel your order

Once your order has placed, it is processed very quickly, so it is often not possible to cancel your order. However, you are able to cancel items that are out of stock, or pre-ordered titles before they are dispatched.

How long will my order take?

Delivery times will vary depending on which products you have purchased, and the delivery service you choose. On average we aim to dispatch your order the following working day from your order. Postal times will vary, but on average it takes 2-5 working days for your order to arrive using our standard delivery service, however if it is later than this, it may be delayed in the post. With this in mind, please allow 10 working days before contacting us with regards to your order.

If an item is currently unavailable at our supplier we will endeavour to source this as quickly as possible and will update your order history with the latest information. If you place an order with titles with differing availability and want these despatched together, the whole order will be held until all items are available. Your credit card will not be charged until the order is despatched.

Where is my order?

The method of dispatched is detailed in your order history. Most of our orders are dispatched via Royal Mail. Larger orders are often dispatched via courier - The courier for your order will be shown in your order history, and any tracking numbers will be detailed too. If your order has not arrived within the expected time frame and was sent via Royal Mail, please allow 10 working days for it to arrive before contacting Customer Services. If your order has been sent with a courier service and has not arrived after 3 working days, please contact us so that we can investigate.

Why was my order cancelled?

Before we cancel an order we will make every effort to contact you to advise which items from your order will be cancelled. Sometimes we are informed by a supplier that an item is no longer available and they have automatically cancelled the order. This could be due to a book title going out of print, or a DVD or music CD that may have become deleted.

Is there a minimum order value?

Our minimum order value is just £1.00, for orders over £25 free standard delivery is FREE.

Delivery

Do you deliver overseas?

At this time, readingspace.co.uk is unable to dispatch outside of the UK. We hope to offer our service to non-UK addresses in the near future.

Can I change the delivery address on my order?

Not currently. Your order will be dispatched to the delivery address entered when you placed your order. If you would like to change the delivery address you will have to cancel your order and place a new order with us.

Which address will my order be delivered to?

Your order will be dispatched to the delivery address entered when you placed your order and confirmed in your order confirmation email.

Payment, pricing and refunds

Are prices inclusive of VAT?

Items that are subject to VAT have the 20% rate reflected in their RRP. Please note, books are not subject to VAT, however for items where partial or full 20% needs to be applied the VAT is included in the selling prices reflected on our website. Full VAT items include eBooks, eReaders, DVDs, Music CD's, games and other non-book products.

Do you offer bulk discounts?

The prices on our website are already discounted, however for bulk orders we will consider offering additional discount, where possible. Please email your details and as much information regarding the products you require along with their quantities, to our customer services team.

What is 3D secure?

We want to protect you when you shop with us and this is an additional check when you enter your credit card details to help protect you against fraudulent use of your card. There are two schemes; Visa's is called 'Verified by Visa' and MasterCard's is 'MasterCard SecureCode'. These are both collectively referred to as 3D Secure.

3D Secure authentication requires the cardholder to register their card to take advantage of this service. This is a one time process which takes place through the card issuer's website and involves the cardholder answering several security questions to which only the card issuer and cardholder will know the answer. The cardholder selects a password and agrees on a secret phrase, which will be used by the card issuer during each online transaction.

3D Secure can be thought of as an online version of 'chip and pin' technology. Instead of entering a pin number you will be asked to confirm the password registered to that specific credit card.

We only accept credit/debit cards issued by UK Banks.

How can I get a refund for an item bought online?

Items must be returned within 30 days of receipt and returned to readingspace.co.uk. Please see our returns and exchanges section for full returns information and instructions as well as our terms and conditions. Some items (DVD's and Music CD's ) cannot be returned once the security seal has been broken, unless the item is faulty.

If we've made an error, supplied the wrong item or the item is defective, we're very sorry, and we'll refund the cost of any return postage as well as replace the item free of charge. Please contact us so we can rectify the error as quickly as possible.
