If you run a bona fide book shop based in Yorkshire, you qualify to sell with us.
You need to do two things: first, apply for an account and onboard with Stripe for your payments. We create your account for you and help you through the Stripe process.
Stripe is one of the world’s most popular payment options for marketplaces as – unlike others - it offers a seamless payment gateway and payment processor in a single package. This means you get paid straight into your bank account (after a short holding period) and there’s no need to settle any invoices – all fees are paid as you sell.
After you create a Stripe account, your new account will be connected to ours.

We create your initial shipping details for you upon account creation. You can then edit these details and create new shipping bands whenever you wish.
This is the type of shipping product that you’re intending to use for a specific shipping band. For instance, you can select products such as ‘First Class’ or ‘Courier’.
This represents the amount of time it usually takes you to actually ship an order and the maximum number of days you expect your shipping company to get the parcel to your customer.
We currently allow two different shipping rules: weight and number of units.
Shipping ranges determine the amounts before and after for a specific price. You can add as many ranges as you want but the final fields should include an 'and up' value - this means you have set all the potential values. Once you have added all the ranges you would like for a specific region, you can save the shipping band and this will be effective immediately.
If you would like to explicitly set a price at which shipping is free just enter the value into this field. Leave this field empty if you don't want to set free shipping.
We will create your listings for you initially. After this, you can bulk upload any new stock yourself.
