The shipping costs added at the end of your order, comprise the handling and the shipment costs for the books you’re ordering. We usually send books using the French postal service (La Poste) for domestic as well as international shipments. In case you prefer a specific shipper please contact us at orders(at)after8books.com giving your order number.

Your order will normally be dispatched within 3 days: you will receive an email from us then. How long your order takes to arrive will of course depend on the delivery address you gave us.
Here is an approximate timetable: France 2-4 days; Europe 6-15 days; Overseas 14-21 days.

If your order has not arrived, please contact us at bookstore(at)after8books.com giving your order number. We can send an invoice for any order upon request. We can use our special wrapping papers for any order upon request. We’re doing our best in terms of packing and handling so that books travel safely. If your parcel arrives in a bad state, and your books are damaged, please let us know.  We do not accept returns, except if we did a mistake handling your order…
