Using the Basket
Adding Items to the Basket
When you find an item you would like to buy, press the 'Add to basket' button. You can see how many items you have in your basket and the total (excluding discounts or postage costs) in the top right of every page. If you would like to view the contents of your basket in detail or are ready to complete your order, click on the 'My Basket' link or the 'Checkout' button.
Item Quantities, Book Points and Promotional Codes
You can adjust the quantity of each item in your basket or delete any items you no longer wish to purchase. If you have a promotional code, enter it into the box provided and click 'Add'. If you are signed in and have enough Book Points, you will see a button against some of your selections allowing you to redeem your saved Book Points.
Placing Your Order
Once you are happy with the contents of your basket and are ready to complete your order, click 'Checkout'. You will be prompted to enter your email address (or customer number) if you are not already signed in. If you are already registered you will be asked to enter your password and we will retrieve your billing address and default delivery, taking you directly to the checkout.
More Information About the Basket
If you put items into the basket when you are signed in, they will remain in the basket for a short time. This means that if you return to the site within a couple of days and sign in, your previous basket will still be available.
