We want you to be satisfied with the books you buy from Red Cart Books. Books that are purchased in the store should be examined before buying so that complete satisfaction can be assured, and the sale will be considered final. Books that are purchased online and picked up locally can be examined at the time of pickup and again, the sale will be considered final.
Books that are purchased online and shipped can be returned within ten days of receipt for a full refund. Book must be in the same condition in which it was purchased. Please notify us by email or phone before returning a book. Returned books should be in the original (or equivalent) packaging. Refunds initiated on item return and inspection.
We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal if purchasing online. Local purchases can be paid in cash at the time of pickup if not already paid through the online shopping cart. We also use the Square device and accept debit (tap only) and credit cards in the store.
The following is meant as a general guideline.
No, not yet, but that will change sometime in the future. When we near the point at which the government requires us to register, we will do so and will be charging 5% GST thereafter on all Canadian orders, in full compliance with tax laws. PST is not charged on books in Ontario.
For our mass-market and more recent used books, we do use stock photos. These are labelled as such under the photo of the individual book. For our rare, antiquarian, and collectible books, we will be uploading pictures taken of each, as time permits. Please request pictures and a more complete description if you are interested in a collectible book.
We prefer to sell your books on commission. There is a limit to how many books we can buy, process, store, and deliver. This would limit the books available on Red Cart Books. Rather than only offer books that will yield a good profit for us, we prefer to let everyone, both buyers and sellers, profit from a thriving used bookstore offering a full range of used books.
If you just want to get rid of your books, we do take books based on condition, demand, the number of copies we already have, and so on. However, we do not give cash for books, but offer instead a store credit you can use towards the purchase of more books.
If you are looking for somewhere to donate books, we will gladly come pick them up, but please note we do not accept encyclopedias, Reader's Digest, magazines of any kind, badly torn books unless very old, or other items that cannot be sold.
For books that have some value, we charge 40% commission to sell your book and we contact you when the book is sold. You have the option of keeping the book with you until it is sold online.
