Book Depository is a UK-based online bookseller with a large catalog offered with free shipping to over 160 countries, including the Philippines. But given the ongoing virus situation, Book Depository halts any deliveries from UK to PH. This could be a problem if you’re after a limited edition book or limited book offers but don’t you worry, we’ve got a solution for you: Have them shipped to your home via Buyandship Philippines. Easy, right? Check out the step-by-step tutorial below on how to get your hands on your favorite books from Book Depository UK straight to your home in the Philippines.
How to Buy Your Favorite and Exclusive Books From Book Depository via Buyandship?
Step 01: Go to Book Depository’s Landing Page
Above anything else, go to Book Depository’s Landing page.
Step 02: Signup or Login to Your Account
Create an account if you’re new to the site or simply log-in to your account if you already have one.
Step 03: Browse Your Favorite Products and Hit “Add to Basket”
With their over 20 million titles, find your favorite books and simply hit “Add to Basket” once you’re satisfied with your finds.
Step 04: Review Your Cart and Proceed to “Checkout”
If you’re happy with your finds, review your cart one last time and then Proceed to Checkout.
Step 05: Enter Shipping Details
In the Shipping section,
- Make sure to put your Buyandship USER ID after your name for easier sorting when your parcel arrived at our warehouse address.
- Select United Kingdom as your Delivery Country
- Click ‘Enter Address Manually’
- Then, enter Buyandship’s U.K. warehouse address for the shipping address.
In order to get Buyandship’s UK Warehouse address, log in to your Buyandship account, under the ‘Overseas Warehouse Address’ section, click on the ‘UK’ Tab and voila! All you have to do is just copy and paste.
Once you are done filling out the shipping section, review all the details and proceed to the Billing Section.
Step 06: Enter Billing Details
Once you’re on the billing section, click the box that says, “Different from Delivery Address” Your billing address should be the same address you input in your credit card account. To clarify:
- Shipping Address = Buyandship U.K Warehouse Address
- Billing Address= Credit Card Address
Simply click ‘Continue to Payment’ once done and enter your credit card details below to pay for your orders.
Step 07: Wait For Buyandship’s Tracking Number
Since Book Depository doesn’t provide Tracking Numbers, please wait for an email from us that you have an “Undeclared Shipment.” In that same email, there is a tracking number in which you can just copy and paste to declare your shipment. Once you have declared your shipment it should move to “Arrived at Overseas Warehouse” status in Parcel Management.
Make sure that you input the correct address with your Buyandship Member ID for us to receive your parcel at our UK Warehouse.
Step 08: Declare Your Shipment
Once you get your tracking code from Walmart US, login to your Buyandship Account, and declare your shipment. All you have to do is:
- Go to ‘Parcel Management’
- Hit ‘Click Here to Add a New Shipment’
- Enter the Warehouse you ship it to, in this case, select ‘Portsmouth, United Kingdom’
- If the Drop indicates which courier they use, select the respective courier. But if you don’t know, choose ‘Other Couriers,’ instead
- Enter your Tracking Number
- Fill out the Product Details (Click ‘Add New Item’ if you bought multiple items)
- Check all of the Terms and Conditions
- Hit ‘Submit’

Step 9: Wait For Your Parcel To Be in Parcel Management “Arrived At HK Warehouse”
Once it is in “Arrived at HK warehouse” in Parcel Management, you can checkout your shipments separately or consolidate your shipments (not separate items) by ticking on the box next to your tracking number. 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 10: Pay for Buyandship’s Shipping Rate
We charge purely based on weight for an introductory price of PHP 350 per pound so, you don’t have to compute for complicated math equations. Plus, we have the lowest shipping rate in the Philippines!
This goes without saying that if your parcel weighs exactly or less than 1 pound, we only charge you PHP 350 but if the weight exceeds 1 pound, we round it up. But don’t worry because you always have the choice to consolidate your items to maximize your money- 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 11: Wait For Your Parcel To Arrive in Your Doorstep in the Philippines
Last step! All you have to do is sit, relax, and wait for your parcels to arrive at your doorstep in the Philippines. Get to enjoy your books directly from Book Depository UK, happy shopping!
See a pricing calculator and parcel restrictions below. No bulk shipments 10 units max per shipment.
Please note that if the total value of your shipments is above Php 10k there will be PH customs clearance fees, separate from our shipping fee that is paid to a local courier, either COD or bank transfer, and sent to your home. If Php 10k or below, then you will only pay our shipping fee 🙂
To enjoy no duty and tax, you need to checkout from HK under Php 10k total value of shipments regardless of how many shipments, then TRACK until it passes PH customs, then send the next batch.
