Ordering books from Book Depository in 2021

I'd like to know how much Covid impacted deliveries from Book Depository in 2021.

Are books delivered by Swiss Post?

Did you get everything you ordered?

How much did you have to wait for your orders to arrive in recent months? How does it compare to pre-pandemic times?

Did the prices rise? Are there extra charges?

I noticed no difference in my Book Depository deliveries. Delivered by Swisspost. No extra charges.

(it might vary depending on availability of what one is ordering)

How many days does it take to get the books (approximately)?

Re: Ordering books from Book Depository in 2021

About a week, give or take (off the top of my head - no emails documenting delivery dates, put in box with regular post)

Checked my BD account, books are usually dispatched 2-3 days after ordering, longest delay has been 7 days, once they are in the post the rest is quite efficient.

In any case, quick enough for me not to have finished what I ordered previously

Re: Ordering books from Book Depository in 2021

I found not much of a difference. Books arrived between 7-10 days, often in multiple packages but I think that was normal before. Relatively quickly given everything going on!

Re: Ordering books from Book Depository in 2021

The only thing that Iíve noticed is that the prices have increased since Brexit.

Looking at the website this indeed seems to be the case, but as long as no additional fees are charged, it's not too bad.
