Shipping & Delivery

Postage is automatically calculated for you once you have placed your order, and the total added to the cost of the items in your shopping cart. Please be aware that if the items in your order are particularly heavy, we may have to charge you more for the postage – particularly when shipping outside of the UK. We will always contact you for your permission to do so.

Where books are in stock orders will be dispatched within 48 hours or receipt, not counting weekends or bank holidays. Non-stock items will take longer, but should reach you within 2 weeks (often shorter, but it depends on the supplier for that particular item). Please wait 10 working days before making a delivery enquiry. Occasionally, one or more of the items you ordered may be temporarily out of stock with our supplier; these items will be forwarded separately as soon as we receive them. There is no extra charge for postage, and your card will not be debited for those items until we are ready to send them. You will be informed of any temporarily out of stock items.

2. How long will my order take?
Where the books are in stock orders will be dispatched from our bookshop within 48 hours or receipt, not counting weekends or bank holidays. We use First class mail for all UK orders, and Airmail for overseas orders.

Non-stock items will take longer, but should reach you within 2 weeks (often shorter, but it depends on the supplier for that particular item). Please wait 10 working days before making a delivery enquiry.

We have the largest stock of mind, body & spirit, magick & occult and all sorts of esoteric books in the UK. Only some of them are on the website – plus, our specialist staff can get a book for you from practically anywhere in the world (as long as it's in print)! However this also means that we only have a few copies of each title available, so they can sometimes sell out from our London shop and become unavailable for online customers before we process their order. In such rare cases we will cancel the order and, if you choose, notify you when the item becomes available again.

3. Rare and temporarily out of stock items
Occasionally, one or more of the items you ordered may be temporarily out of stock with our supplier; these items will be forwarded separately as soon as we receive them. There is no extra charge for postage, and your card will not be debited for those items until we are ready to send them. You will be informed of any temporarily out of stock items.

If such items are not expected to be in stock within 3 weeks of your order, we will cancel the order and, if you like, notify you when they are available again.

4. Non-delivery
If you have not received your order within the quoted delivery time or would like to check on the status of your order, you can do so by logging into your account or contacting our Customer Support at orders@watkinsbooks.com. Please do not contact us regarding your delivery earlier than 14 days after placing your order.

If you do not receive goods ordered by you within 45 days of the date on which they were dispatched, we will have no liability to you unless you notify us within 50 days of the date on which the goods were dispatched. If you notify a problem to Watkins Books under this condition, our only obligation will be to refund the amount paid by you for the goods in question to the original method of payment.
