South Bay Books ... Phone Order Guide

Here is the information we will need to process your order, and the steps to follow. We have done our best to "keep it simple."

1. Choose your book(s).

Browse our bookshelves, pick up a book, take a look at the cover.  Open up a page or two and read a little bit of it. Browse some more, if you like.Then ... print out the  Mail Order Form and use it as a guide.
2. Choose your shipping options (for US orders).
If you want your order sent by "U.S. Priority Mail" (about 3 days), the rate is $5.00 plus 75¢ for each book in  your order.

If you are thrify and patient, have your order sent by "Media Mail"  (this 4th class book rate takes about 7 to 14 days), which is $2.50 plus 75 ¢ for each book in  your order.  But it is 4th Class Mail, and gets treated that way by the post office.    The good news - rarely have we seen an order lost - when shipped with the US Postal Service.   Delivery Confirmation are used on all our U.S. orders, so if you have questions about an order, once shipped, we can give you the tracking number.

For our non-U.S. customers please see the  Shipping Rates page for the exact costs for your orders.

3. Choose your method of payment.
For phone orders, we accept Visa or Mastercard. Sorry, no CODs.
Please have your credit card (and the card holder's name and address) ready when you call.
If the "ship to" address is in California, sales tax is 8.75% of the book order.
4. The shipping address.
If the "ship to" address is different than the credit card holder's, please have the name, full address, city and zip code handy.
5. Call us at 310.320.5033
Our voice messaging system is fully secure and you may  leave the specifics of your order and credit card information on our secure voice messaging system.
