A comprehensive shopping site dedicated to selling software titles for children of all ages and indeed adults. Not just for educational titles but for leisure and interest too. This is a good site for parents and teachers too.
The site looks a little confusing at first as they have seemed to haved everything in, but don't be put off as it is not as bad as it looks.
There is a good search facility and the main categories are displayed at the top of the page, and these include a Family Section, Hobby and Leisure, Languages,Gift Centre and Business Learning. Each of these main categories hosts a good selection on titles including; music, all G.C.S.E. and A Level titles, Special Needs, Reference and far too many to name.
There is also a sale section and many bundle packages which will save you approximately 50% on the recommended retail price.
All products have their availability displayed in the product details section. If items are subject to a delay - then you will be immediately notified.
Once you have made your selection, you will be taken to the checkout, where you will be asked to log in or indeed register (which is very straightforward). You will then be presented with 3 options on how to pay.
1) Secure Online ordering - allows you to order via a credit/debit card on-line. You will also be given the opportunity to have your order delivered to an alternative delivery address to your billing address. You will then be shown a summary of your order and asked to confirm. You will also receive an e-mail to confirm your order. 2) Fax or Mail Order - this option will produce a sheet for you to print which you then fill in with your payment details and send back to them. 3) Telephone Ordering - you will be given details on how to order via a phone call (charged at local rate).
All U.K. orders are sent via first class recorded delivery and they aim to despatch orders within 4 days. E-mails are sent to record your orders progress.
Postage and packing rates are £2.95 per order with all orders over £50.00 free.
Apart from the United Kingdom, they will also deliver to a further 62 countries, with varying rates of postage and packing charges, which are all listed on-line.
They do offer a 7 day money back guarantee but items do have to be unopened and unused to protect against copyright theft.
A good site especially for presents as they offer an international service and free giftwrapping.
At the moment they have a sale on with a lot of items reduced by at least half the original price so it is worth checking out.
