Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Bring When I Collect My Click & Collect Item?
How Do I Pay For My Click & Collect Item?
You pay for your reserved item in the Waterstones bookshop when you collect it. The price paid is the price advertised online when the Click & Collect reservation was made.
What Happens If the Price is Cheaper in the Waterstones Shop I Am Collecting From?
You will always pay the lower price.
More often this will be the one on Waterstones.com, but if the shop you are collecting from has the item at a lower price, then that is what you will pay.
Can I Use Online Voucher Codes When Paying For a Click & Collect Item?
No - to take advantage of any online voucher codes, items must be ordered and paid for on Waterstones.com.
Do I earn Plus Stamps on Click & Collect Purchases?
Yes. Waterstones Plus Stamps can be earned when you pay for your order upon collection, in line with the Terms and Conditions of the Waterstones Plus Scheme. Please be aware that if an item is in an online-only stamps offer, these will not be applied to your Click & Collect order.
Can I Reserve More Than One Copy of a Book Using Click & Collect?
If you would like more than one copy of a book, you will need to place a reservation for every copy required.
Due to the limited nature of stock in our shops, if you need more than a couple of copies of any one item, we recommend you add the required quantity to your basket and place an order through our checkout.
Is Click & Collect Available in All Waterstones Bookshops?
Click & Collect is available in UK stores, including campus branches.
Unfortunately it is not currently available in our European shops, though we hope to extend it at a later date.
If you would like to check availability of an item in one of our shops in Ireland, Amsterdam or Brussels, please feel free to contact them directly and our booksellers will be happy to help. You can find the contact details on our Shop Finder page.
