I'm on a pursuit to find the best online bookstores that accept PayPal. PayPal support is essential because I refuse to use any other method of payment. If you know of places that cater specifically to Canadian residents, all the better. I've come across quite a few online bookstores that offer free shipping to American residents, but haven't come across any, other than The Book Depository
, which offer free shipping to Canadians.
So far, the best online bookstores I've found that have PayPal support, ranked in order, are:
(shipping can be quite expensive if ordering from multiple bookstores, so I tend to order from the same bookstore to save money on shipping)
. The Book Depository
(I recently discovered this site. I love it because everything there has free shipping. I only use it when looking to buy new new editions of books)
(unfortunately, not every bookseller here accepts PayPal. But lots of stuff can be found. Not as good as its main competitor Biblio
(I usually check out this site after looking for title(s) on Biblio
(haven't ordered from here yet, but it looks promising. I'd use it if I could find stuff cheaper here than on The Book Depository
. Books seem to be reasonably priced)
. Barnes & Noble
(very well-known bookstore, though I haven't used it. The prices there are very promising and they have a lot to offer. However, I tried ordering from there and couldn't checkout. I've no idea why it didn't work, but I'll give it another shot sometime)
(technically not a bookstore, but lots of books can be found here. Unfortunately, most books on Ebay have absurd shipping rates, so it tends to be the last place I look to when buying used books. When I started buying used books, Ebay was the only place I used to use. Thank god I discovered more places online that sell books)
Any additional bookstore recommendations would be great. I'm sure there are plenty more good online stores out there that are worth checking out. The only thing I ask is that you mention stores that have PayPal support. If Amazon
had PayPal support, I would've mentioned it.
*Note - not sure if I should stick this in "shopping" or "writing and language". I guess shopping would probably be more relevant . . .
