Shipping Information

Holland Park

We want to help you as best we can and have therefore built a list of common problems that you may encounter. If we have missed anything then please don't hesitate to call us on 020 7794 8206 or email us at orders@dauntbooks.co.uk .

How do I pay?

To order online you will need a VISA, MasterCard or Maestro card. Unfortunately, we do not accept American Express or Diners cards. We will not charge your account until your order is despatched. All payments should be made in sterling.

How will my book be delivered?

Your order will be despatched from one of our shops. All of our books are sent hand wrapped and by first class mail with a personal message if necessary. Please see below for our postage rates.

Is it safe to pay online?

When you place an order online with Daunt Books, your personal details are completely safe. We use the industry standard secure server software, which protects your information as it is transmitted over the Internet. Your order is encrypted so that no one else can read it, and is not decoded until it reaches our secure server. When it reaches us, only authorised personnel will see it. We do not store your credit card details online, so other internet users cannot access your details. In the event of fraudulent or unauthorised use of your card, most banks and card issuers will not hold you liable for the charges incurred - or will only hold you liable for the first £50. We are confident that whilst you are using our site, there is no chance of this happening. So, if through no fault of your own, unauthorised use of your card takes place through our secure server, we will cover your liability up to a maximum of £50. This guarantee is limited to purchases made through our secure server and is subject to notification of your card issuer in line with its regulations.

What is the Card Verification Code?

The Card Verification Code system has been introduced by banks as a measure to combat credit card fraud. If you are using VISA or Mastercard, this will be the last three digits on the signature strip on the back of the card.

Will my private details stay private?

Yes. For your convenience, we will keep a record of all the information you give us so that we can make it easier for you to order in the future - and so that we can send you information about Daunt Books that might be of interest or important to you. We do not sell or rent your personal details to anyone. We also don't store your details online so other internet users cannot access them.

What if I change my mind?

Any title supplied through dauntbooks.co.uk may be returned within 30 days for a full refund. Books must be received in mint condition. We recommend that you use a recorded delivery service for all returns.

Postage and Packing Rates

All of our books are sent hand wrapped and by first class mail with a personal message if necessary. Please be aware that if your order is particularly heavy, we may need to charge you more for the postage. However, we will always contact you before we do so.
