How to order

Ordering from this website

Both print and e-book titles can be added to your shopping list as you browse through our site. Once you have collected all the titles you want, proceed to the checkout.

  • Any printed publications that you order will generate an order request to our Customer Services department. Our Customer Services team will process your request and then email you a pro forma invoice together with payment instructions. Your order is released for delivery once proof of payment has been received.
  • E-book titles that you order through our website are handled differently. Once you have completed your details, you will be directed to a secure payment facility through Payfast. Once you have completed the payment transaction, an email will be sent to you with further instructions for downloading and accessing your e-books. Visit our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page for software requirements and device compatibility.
