Are the products new or used?
We only sell new products received from the publisher, brand or distributor. However, because we normally import directly, the products may experience slight damage on the crease, cover or edges. Please note, we will still sell items in these conditions to customers. Returning these products to our overseas suppliers is not environmentally-friendly.

I am worried about the environment so I prefer ebooks. Do you sell ebooks?
No, we do not sell ebooks at this moment. We also care about the environment as well. We do our best to reduce waste, use of plastic wrapping and extra material when we ship our products.

We also request customers to understand that our products are imported, and we do not normally return damaged goods but sell these items to customers at a reduced price.

If you are concerned about the condition of an item, please send us a message before ordering.
