Help with Login

You do not need to register at Stella & Rose's Books website to buy books - you can complete the Checkout as a Guest but at the end of the process you will be given the opportunity to create an account which allows you to save addresses and view previous online orders. Please note that our website is separate from our shop system: even if you receive email or paper lists from us, or have purchased from our shops, it does not necessarily mean that you have registered on our website.

  • Make sure you enter your email address correctly otherwise we will not be able to contact you with confirmation of your order
  • Enter a unique password. Passwords that include numbers are more secure as they are not easily guessed by third parties, and should be a minimum of 6 characters.
  • Enter your password again in the "Confirm password" box to make sure you have typed it correctly

Payment options

You can pay by most major credit & debit cards and Paypal. Sorry, but we do not accept payment by Cheque.

If you are having problems with payment, please contact us and we will do what we can to resolve the issue.

For your security, credit & debit card payments are made on the secure payment pages at SagePay. SagePay, a division of Sage (UK) Limited, allows you to enter card details and receive an authorisation response without the details being seen by us. You can read more about SagePay at their website

You will be required to enter the card number, expiry date, start date (if applicable), the name of the cardholder as it appears on the card, and the security number. Please note that cards which must be physically swiped through a machine CANNOT be used online.

IMPORTANT: while on the SagePay or Paypal payment pages, you should not press the browser back button otherwise you will see an error message. It is not possible to pay using a Maestro card at Sagepay

Delivery of your order

During Checkout you will be asked to enter your shipping address and billing address (if it is different). 

For delivery within UK, we offer two flat-rate options, regardless of the number of books or the value. UK Standard delivery costs £4.75 and delivery takes 1-3 business days. UK Express costs £10 and delivery is 1 business day. International shipping rates & methods depend on where you want your order sent and the value of the book(s) in your basket. Shipping costs are calculated automatically and are based on the total weight of the items in the basket. There is an option to preview shipping rates whenever you add an item to your shopping basket and at the start of the Checkout.

We will confirm dispatch of your order by email and tell you the expected delivery date and tracking number, if available.
