Move to Flat Rate Shipping

by Book Grocer on March 16, 2022

Dear Book Grocer family,

As of the end of January 2022, we are now shipping orders at a flat rate, depending on which state the order is being shipped to.  There will be no free shipping threshold, but there will also be no additional shipping costs for large orders.   Please see the table below for your shipping rate.

 State Shipping Cost (Flat rate)
VIC, NSW, ACT, SA, TAS and QLD $10
WA and NT $20


The shipping cost will be automatically added to your cart at checkout. 

For the same reason, we will also be unable to ship to multiple addresses in the same order.  If you would like to ship items to more than one address, please place separate orders for these items.

We hope that this change will help us keep our book prices the lowest, and our books and Book Boxes the best, across Australia.  We'll be busy adding many new books and Book Boxes to the site over the coming weeks. 

Thank you for your support, now and into 2022.

Sorry Book Grocer, but your business model has changed,for the worst. Only 2 stores in melb cdb, one of them not open on the weekends, as for the prices for the books you sell, well, I can find them also at amazon maybe a little more than you, but not much more. I have bought some graphic novels from you previously, but due to your new postage – very unlikely I will.

Inflation is running at 1.5 – 2%, except at The Book Grocer where a $100 box will now cost $110 – a 10% inflated price, or an order of $50 goes to $60 – a 20% increase. I will also stick to Amazon at $3.90 per delivery, or free for an order over $39, or other retailers where the delivery charge is only $7.95 per order. When I first started shopping at The Book Grocer, when all books were just $10, now ……..

It is advertising FREE Shipping till 31st January why when I go to payment $10 shipping is appearing and it is 28/01/2022 Thank you.

yeah, I agree it’s a shame- we only shop here for the discounted graphic novels and the $50 free shipping makes it compelling to add an extra book to get to that free shipping price point. Will stick with Amazon prime from now on.

I suspect this will destroy your online business. Bad decision.
