BOOKS ON ASIA: We specialize in the sale of high-quality material on Asian arts, cultures, history & languages, Asian indigenous books, Asian religions, particularly Buddhism, China Trade books, new & antiquarian books, manuscripts & maps, North-, South- & Southeast Asia and the Himalayan region. Originally founded in Thailand, we have served our customers on the ABE site, our own website and other online outlets, as well as from our physical shop in the Silom Complex in Bangkok since 2002. Our Silom shop has been closed for several years now and our operations have recently relocated from Thailand to Canada, where we continue our focus on the provision of printed material on all aspects of Asian culture. Orchid Press has been a member of the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA) since 2011. WE ARE ALWAYS INTERESTED TO BUY COLLECTIONS AND INDIVIDUAL ITEMS IN OUR AREAS OF INTEREST.
Terms of Sale
Orchid Press strives for and guarantees 100% customer satisfaction. We take great care to describe accurately the bibliographic details, condition and authenticity of what we sell. In the unlikely event that there has been an error in any of these areas, we will be happy to provide a full refund of the cost of purchase on return of the item. Please see below for further details of sales policies, including our return policy.
PRICES AND PAYMENT:
All prices are net, FOB Trinity, NL Canada.
Prepayment is required except for bona fide institutional buyers.
Credit card (or e-transfer for Canadian customers) is the preferred payment methods. However, for larger purchases, we reserve the right to request payment only by bank transfer (or e-transfer) for first purchase by new customers. We do accept personal cheques and drafts, providing the purchase is above $200, but books will only ship following cheque / draft clearance. (We will accept cheques and drafts for smaller purchases only if drawn on a Canadian bank.) If payment method selected is either bank/wire transfer or cheque, bank charges at both ends of the transaction are to the account of the buyer
Orders usually ship within 2 business days (PLEASE READ FURTHER BELOW ON DELIVERY TIMES). Overseas postage options include Air, EMS (Xpresspost) or commercial courier service.
Orchid Press GUARANTEES prompt packing and shipment of your order following order processing. Most orders are dispatched by latest the day following your order acceptance and many will depart the very same day. Orchid Press CANNOT GUARANTEE the time it will take the postal system to transport your order to your destination address. Increasingly frequently, due to political and other global conditions, delivery times are stretching beyond the 25-45 working day (surface) or 8-14 working day (airmail) estimates that the ABE site quotes. Our delivery completion record is near 100%—that is, we virtually NEVER lose a parcel that we have dispatched. We ask you to please be patient with the current postal situation which is beyond the influence or control of all of us.
Orchid Press accepts returns of any purchase for full refund of the purchase price. Books must be returned within 14 days of customer’s receipt and must be in the same condition as when shipped by Orchid Press. If the item is not as described in our Website description or any pre-purchase correspondence, Orchid Books will also provide a full refund the of customer’s cost of return postage.
Prior to or at the time of return postage, please advise us by Email of your wish to return the item. Please ensure that the return parcel is registered, and, if an expensive item, preferably fully insured. Orchid Press cannot refund any returns that are lost in the post and thus not received back by us, or that are received in damaged condition.
