Quote of the Day
Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Returns D&E
Books received damaged by the customer or shipped to the customer in error must be reported to us within thirty days of receipt of the shipment. Defective books may be reported at any time. We need the following information to process a returns request:
• Your NBN Account Number
• Order/Invoice number
• Title(s) & ISBN(s)
• Type of damage / problem
• Value of goods
• Quantity

All cartons returned for D&E returns should be marked D&E for crediting.
Send by Parcel or Book Post to our distributors, the address to be provided by Carcanet Customer Services with the returns authorisation.

Trading (overstock returns) eligibility
All titles stocked by customers can be returned unless sold on a firm sale basis.
Titles returned must be in resalable condition.
Returns can be made at any time between three and fifteen months from the date of the invoice for the stock.
Carcanet’s agents will process the returns and issue a credit to the bookseller’s account. Deductions may not be made by the bookseller.
