Virtual Book Fair Info for Parents

Hello everyone,

If you have found this page then it is likely your school is having a book fair with us this week.

Here is a little video on how to order and a few common Q&A that should help you order. If you  have any queries not covered on this post please do get in touch. Lynne is our Book Fair Co-ordinator and will be happy to help - admin@booksforbugs.co.uk

 

 

How do I order?

Shop the extensive range on our website and just add all the item you want to your basket. You can then pay at the checkout stage so no money needs to be taken to school. Shop our full range here

 

How do we get free shipping?

When you get to the checkout stage you add your details to the billing section. Then for the shipping add your child's name, your child's class, the name of the school and the school's address. The school's postcode is the bit that activates the free shipping.

 

I have got to the checkout and it is charging me postage?

This is normally one of two reasons.

  1. The postcode we have set on our system is different to the one you are using- please refer to your school email which should have the correct postcode. Sometime two schools work together but use 1 postcode for example an infant school and a junior school on the same site.
  2. Your fair may not have started yet. Fairs typically run Monday to (midnight) Sunday or Wednesday to Midnight the following Tuesday. The postcodes are activated at the start of your fair and are deactivated at the end. This is so that all orders are sent to school together at the end of the fair. The dates of your fair should be on the email from your school.

Do school earn from my purchases?

Yes! School get a free £2.50 book for every 5 books purchased. But if Daisy orders 2 and Thomas orders 2 and Veda orders 1 that still counts so you don't have to personally buy 5, every book counts!

 

Can we purchase crafts during the fair?

Absolutely! You can order anything on the website but because the crafts and £1 books are so cheap we are unable to offer commission to school on these.

 

When will we get our books?

We aim to dispatch all orders the next working day after your school fair ends. This is on a 24hr delivery service so if your fair ends on a Sunday they should arrive at school on Tuesday. All orders are individually wrapped in paper bags and labelled with each child's name and class on so quick to hand out once they arrive.

 

Can I order after the fair

100% yes, lots of our customers first found out about us through the school fair. Books for Bugs is about making books affordable to everyone 24/7 so outside of your school fair you are welcome to order as a regular customer.

You can also join our mailing list for updates on sales, special offer and if you are local our open days too. Join our mailing list here
