How to order a Kelpies book

From the Kelpies website

  • There are many ways to catch a Kelpie on our website — including browsing our New Books, Kelpies by Age and Kelpies by Genre selections or using our comprehensive Find a Kelpie search. To find a specific book, just type your search phrase (usually a title, author, keyword or ISBN) into the box at the right-hand top of the page.
  • To find out more about any book, including the price and availability, click the title or cover to go to the book’s individual page. Below the cover, you’ll find sample pages of the book to help you decide whether this is the right book for you. If you want like to buy the book, click on the Add to Basket link. If you’d like to save the book for later, or to create a list of books for other purposes, click the Add to Wishlist link (for more info on this feature see Using the Wishlist, below).
  • Your basket shows you all the books you are currently buying. When you add a new book, you will be given the option to View Basket. To view your basket at any time, click on the Basket logo at the top of the page.
  • To calculate the postage for your order, select your postage area (UK, Europe or Rest of the World). Your postage will be automatically calculated and added on to your total. Delivery costs are listed on our Delivery and Returns page.
  • If you have a Coupon code for a special offer, please enter the coupon code in the box on your Basket and click the Apply Coupon button to apply the discount.
  • To remove a book from your basket, click on the red ‘x’ on the far left of the line. To change the quantity of a particular book, use the up and down arrows to change the quantity, then click ‘Update Basket’.
  • When you have finished shopping, go to your basket and click on the Proceed to Checkout link. You will then be asked to enter your billing and delivery address (if different) and payment details
  • Please click the Pay Securely with SagePay link only once to avoid duplicate orders. All payment details on the Kelpies website are encrypted and are fully secure, so you don’t need to worry about entering your credit or debit card details.
  • When your order has been placed, you will receive an email confirmation. The confirmation will include an order reference number which you should keep safe in case of future queries. If you do not receive an email confirmation please contact us as this may indicate that your order has not been processed.
  • If there are any problems with your order, one of our customer service team will contact you. Please make sure you provide up-to-date contact details.
