Which online book order website has direct shipping?

Postby sleepy » Fri Dec 04, 2009 9:25 am

Hi

Do you know which online book order website has direct delivery to Singapore?

I've tried website like bookdepository with direct delivery to Singapore. However, its collection of books seem limited.

Looking for similar websites with direct shipment to Singapore (no need via vpost).

Thanks for sharing :D

www.scholastic.co.uk

www.thebookpeople.co.uk -> very good for box sets, but not much selection (at least for me)

Amazon direct shipping is expensive. You will see the direct shipping charges in your cart.

I know but the OP (original poster) is asking about direct shipment to Singapore without using 3rd party freight forwarders. For Amazon DIRECT shipping, it doesn't get cheaper if you order more.

Ordered direct from Amazon UK. Tried to compare the shipment charge between Amazon and VPOST Europe, found that direct shipment from Amazon still cheaper.
