British Customers

A payment basket is attached to all books as they are added to the site.  As a result customers in the UK can order books directly on-line using all the major credit and debit cards.

Alternatively, books can be reserved using either email  (GordonSteven@BatterdaleBooks.co.uk), or the telephone (01904 870 869).  I will then reserve your books for 10 days pending receipt of your cheque made payable to Batterdale Books.  The full postal address is Batterdale Books, Field House, 9A School Lane, Heslington, York YO10 5EE, United Kingdom.

The following charges are made to cover postage and packing:

   Orders up to 10:  2.80

   Orders over 10 up to 30:  4.00

   Orders over 30 up to 60:  5.00

   Over 60: Post Free 

Postage increase:  We have made some minor adjustments to our postage rates in May, after keeping our rates unchanged for many years.  Meanwhile the Royal Mail price for a small parcel has steadily increased from 2.50, reaching 3.00 in April 2019.  We have therefore reluctantly increased our own minimum charge from 2.50 to 2.80.  We have also moved the post free boundary from 50.00 to 60.00   

Overseas Customers

On overseas orders I charge postage at cost.  It is therefore not possible to use the payment baskets.  Instead please e-mail me at GordonSteven@BatterdaleBooks.co.uk, listing the books that you wish to purchase.  If possible also let me know whether you wish to use airmail or surface mail.  I will then e-mail you a Paypal invoice which will allow you to pay on-line by credit card.

Alternatively, I can reserve your books pending receipt of a sterling cheque or a bank draft payable to Batterdale Books and drawn on a UK bank.

Finally, I also accept payment in sterling notes or euros - but only on the understanding that these are sent entirely at the customer's own risk.

Our Guarantee

If you believe the condition of any book that you have received was not described accurately on this site, we will refund your money in full providing that the book is returned to us securely packed within 10 days.
