Step 01: Go To Barnes and Noble’s Landing Page

Step 02: Browse and Shop Your Favorite Books and Products



Whether you’re looking for a book, a DVD set, board games, or toys, Barnes and Noble have it regardless of what it’s known for. Take your time to browse and shop on their landing page and click “Add to Cart” if you fancy something.


Step 03: Review Your Cart and Hit ‘Checkout’



You wanted to make sure that you’ll buy something worthy so, double-check everything! Keep on doing comparisons to ensure that you’re actually saving money, not wasting some. Once you’re happy with what’s in your cart, simply hit “Checkout” to proceed.


Step 04: Upon Check-Out, Enter Shipping Details



In the shipping address section of the Checkout page,

  • Click on the United States as your country or region
  • Enter your actual name, in the first name section and then enter your Buyandship USER ID for the last name.

In order to get Buyanship’s US Warehouse address, log in to your Buyandship account, under the ‘Overseas Warehouse Address’ section, click on the ‘US’ Tab and voila! All you have to do is just copy and paste.



Once you are done filling out the shipping section, click “Save & Use Address” to proceed to payment.


Step 05: Fill In Your Billing Information



Luckily, Barnes & Noble accepts the Philippines’ credit/debit card so if you have one, all you have to do is enter the necessary information. You can also pay via Paypal if you don’t have any card.

Make your Shipping Address and Billing Address are not the same. It’s important to understand that those two addresses are different. Enter your Philippines Address instead or the same address you put into your credit or debit card. Again, to keep it clear:

  • Shipping Address = Buyandship U.S Warehouse Address
  • Billing Address= Your Actual Address in the Philippines

Once you’re done, click “Save and Use Payment” to proceed.

Once each shipment arrives HK warehouse you have free consolidation services and 30 days storage. If you want to checkout, fill out the checkout details, and proceed to payment.



Step 09: Pay for Buyandship’s Shipping Rate



We charge purely based on weight for an introductory price of PHP 300 per pound so, you don’t have to compute for complicated math equations. Plus, we have the lowest shipping rate in the Philippines! How crazy is that?!

This goes without saying that if your parcel weighs exactly or less than 1 pound, we only charge you PHP 300 but if the weight exceeds 1 pound, we round it up. Don’t worry, though, because you always have the choice to consolidate your items to maximize your money but that’s a whole another conversation so it’s best if you just read more about consolidation here.

Once you get notified that you’re parcel is in our HK Warehouse, all you need to do is pay the service fee before we process it. Buyandship only accepts Internationally accepted Mastercard or Visa or Virtual Cards for a safer and faster way to pay.


Step 10: Wait For Your Parcel To Arrive in Your Doorstep in the Philippines



All there’s left to do is wait for your shipment to arrive at your doorstep. Read all the books you want or play with all the games you bought at Barnes and Noble, happy shopping!
