Book sales on Amazon.com

Important note: We currently have no arrangement to sell any of our publications through amazon.com.

Although Amazon list most of our titles as being available from them, (without our permission); they also falsely state that our books are currently out of print or unobtainable! The reasoning, if any, behind this pointless policy escapes us!

Several other booksellers, around the world, also list copies of our publications for sale via Amazon, (and also on Ebay), often at outrageously inflated prices (sometimes 300-600% or more!). None of these booksellers hold any new copies of our books, only perhaps, secondhand ones, and will be unable to fulfil any orders placed with them for new copies!

The Pagoda Tree Press books listed here are all still very much in print, and are only available directly from us, with the exception of one or two titles available from select bookshops in India.

EBAY

We do now occasionally offer some of our titles (though not all of them), for sale on Ebay; solely on a 'buy it now' basis. This should make it easer for some customers to place orders instantly and to pay via Paypal.

SHIPPING CHARGES.

Please note that UK Royal Mail postal rates have been changed yet again - (especially the international parcel rates; and with additional new size restrictions!), as from April 2014, and all our postage charges have been increased in line with the new charges. We have now updated all our shipping charges accordingly.

Note: All shipping charges reflect the basic cost of postage or shipping, with no additional packing or administrative costs added. 

 

PAYMENT:

  • Important note: we now no longer accept any payments by credit or debit cards.
  •  
  •  
  • We now accept payments primarily via PayPal, or by sterling cheque or bank transfer.
