Most books are on hand in our UK warehouse and are usually dispatched within 24 hours.
Specialist titles take a little longer to dispatch. This is indicated by a longer estimated dispatch time on our eBay listing.
Our standard postage type is Royal Mail 2nd Class in the UK, and Royal Mail International for the rest of the world, so we cannot provide a tracking number.
Royal Mail First Class is usually a next day service.
The postage on all our orders is calculated per item. So, there is no set rate per country. Sometimes we don’t add a shipping charge – it depends upon the item and location.
When you are on the eBay product page, go to the “Postage and payments” tab. Select the shipping country. Click “Get Rates” and it will tell you the shipping cost. If your country does not appear in the drop-down-box then we are unable to ship that particular item to that location.
If your country appears in the drop-down-box but it doesn't calculate a cost, and says instead to refer to the seller, then we are unable to ship to your country.
So we can provide a great range of books, we obtain some specialist titles directly from the publisher after a customer places their order. This leads to the longer dispatch period.
Print on Demand
Some specialist titles are Print On Demand; this will be stated on the listing. They may be uncorrected reproductions of the original text.
We don't offer combined postage. This is because we package items separately and aim to provide the best overall deal, including postage, for our customers.
Once an order has been completed via eBay and the payment has cleared, we are often unable amend or cancel the order.
We can send PDF invoices, via email, after the order has been dispatched. Please contact us if you require an invoice.
Our packaging is selected to be the most appropriate for each item. This is one of the reasons we package all our items separately; so that the book will arrive in perfect condition.
Please note, as we do not include any pricing information or the name of the purchaser within our parcels, the recipient will not know who the gift is from unless you let them know.
We do not provide a gift wrapping service currently.
We cannot exchange items but we are happy to accept returns if the item is still in perfect condition and unused.
As Wordery will not reimburse you for the returns postage costs, we do not stipulate a postage method to use.
Please request, and retain, a proof of posting receipt.
