Payments & Discounts

Payment options

We accept the following methods of payment

  • All major Credit Cards except American Express
  • PayPal
  • Invoice: UK primary/secondary schools only, payment by BACs or cheque.

All credit and debit card transactions are subject to validation checks and are authorised by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card or PayPal refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay and/or non-delivery of your order.

Security

We use secure socket layer (SSL) technology for all transactions to ensure that your details are safe with us. All information provided is encrypted so it cannot be read by third parties.

Ordering & payment

Orders can be submitted via this website, by fax or by email. We do not accept orders by phone. If you have a requirement that is not handled by our web site, please contact us to make special arrangements.

UK primary and secondary schools

If your order is to be paid by your LEA or you would like your school to be invoiced, please let us have a Purchase Order number during the checkout process.

Providing an official purchase order number in all instances will allow your order to be processed more swiftly. Alternatively, you can opt to pay by credit card.

International orders

International Orders (including school orders) require pre-payment by international bank transfer, credit card or PayPal.

You will not be able to pay for your order until you’ve received notification from us of the additional delivery costs. Delivery costs are dependent on the size and weight of the parcel and the country it is being delivered to and the delivery address. You will receive notification of the final cost of your order via email, with a link which will take you directly to the payment options.

A further £6.00 may be added to the shipping charge to cover the bank fees for the transfer.

Goods ordered for delivery overseas may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the purchaser; Phonic books Ltd have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Please be aware that you must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.
