Direct Orders Policy

All Comma titles in stock can be purchased at Order online to receive approximately 10% discount, and, for most new releases, to receive your books weeks before they arrive in the shops.

Forthcoming titles can be ordered around two months in advance of their publication date to ensure that your copy is despatched immediately upon publication (just click the 'add to cart' button). Payment will be taken at the point of order.

You can add as many books as you like to your shopping basket; the system will 'remember' your basket regardless of how long you take, even if you leave the site and return later. This process does require your browser to have cookies enabled (the usual default). At any stage of the process (including at the checkout) you are able to view your basket, change the quantity of books, or delete a previous selection.

When you have finished browsing, you can 'checkout' your basket by clicking on the appropriate link on the purchase page. The checkout process is simple and secure; all payment details are encrypted to protect sensitive information.

Books in stock are normally despatched within five working days of the order and delivered in the UK within five working days. If ordering from outside the UK please allow for up to two weeks for the book to arrive. International shipping costs are determined by the zone costs set out by the Royal Mail.

Please note that the postage costs incurred by ordering direct maybe higher than normal postage costs because we may need to include the cost of the books coming to us from the distributor.

Comma cannot be held responsible for loss of items in transit or at the point of delivery. Please make sure the address you provide is both correct and up-to-date and also a reliable place for having mail sent to.
