From the beginning, Better World Books have had a goal to be the world’s best online bookstore. And they are well on their way! I have been happy to support such a worthy cause and never begrudgingly paid for my shipping, especially since the price of the books themselves have always been so affordable.
NOW, as they have grown, it has become possible for Better World Books to offer their worldwide customers the same privileged their USA customers enjoy: FREE SHIPPING!
Co-founders of Better World Books Xavier and Kreece have decided to take the weight of the books into account when pricing them. This means that you will generally see paperback books being very affordable, hardcovers slightly more expensive, and some heavy textbooks more expensive, but still very affordable!
Overall, you will still save an average of over 50% off the original prices on the used books.
Every book I have ever ordered from Better World Books (and I have ordered quite a few), has been “second-hand” but has always arrived in mint condition! OK – so some didn’t stay that way – Paulo Coelho’s Best Selling ALCHEMIST was so riveting that I didn’t see the bubbles taking over the bath and beyond, engulfing the pages and consuming it whole!
Better World Books have also taken this opportunity to upgrade EVERY order to international PRIORITY shipping.
This will mean even faster and more reliable international shipping!
This is a big step, but it is just the beginning. Better World Books have plans to support more currencies, more payment methods and even better delivery service for certain markets.
Keep an eye on the site in 2011!
