Powered by Silvereye?

We have entered into a partnership with Silvereye Learning Resources to provide this bookshop. We work with Silvereye to curate a list of resources appropriate for our community. Silvereye then does all the backend processing and dispatches Bookshop orders for us.

How can we pay for an order if we don't want to give credit card details over the internet?

Australian and New Zealand customers can pay by EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer). Just select the EFT payment method at checkout and we will email you instructions to make payment directly from your bank account. We now also accept OSKO/PayID payments which are almost instant and so avoid the typical 2 to 3 day delay with bank transfers.

Please note that all credit/debit card transactions and personal data entered on our website are encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security. Your web browser should display a padlock when you transact on our website.

How long will it take to get my order?

We process and dispatch Australian and New Zealand orders daily and most orders are dispatched within 14 days. We hold extensive stock and so can dispatch many orders directly. For items temporarily out of stock or which need to be specially ordered, there is usually only a short wait - we have quick turnaround from local publishers and we restock from US and UK publishers every couple of weeks.

Backordered titles may be awaiting a reprint or not yet published. We also work with a wide array of publishers, some of whom have longer lead times for delivery. If there is going to be a longer than usual delay, we will let you know.

Can I get a refund or replacement?

If an item you receive is faulty, please contact us straight away. Where possible we will provide a replacement for any faulty items or alternatively you can ask for a refund. If you are in any doubt as to your entitlements under this policy, please refer to the Australian Consumer Law which we fully comply with.

Note that we do not offer refunds or exchanges if you simply change your mind. Please choose your order carefully as returned goods will not be accepted without prior authorisation (at our discretion).

If returns are made without authorisation, costs will still be charged to your account and no credit given.
