Waterstones Marketplace


About Waterstones Marketplace

Waterstones Marketplace offers an extensive range of used, out-of-print, and hard-to-find books.

In partnership with Alibris - a leader in used and collectible books, music, and movies - Waterstones offers access to tens of millions of items stocked by independent sellers from 45 countries around the world.

Our partnership with Alibris means that you'll notice the company's name at various points during your Waterstones Marketplace experience, including on your card statement ("Alibris Waterstones") if you buy something.

You will need to create a sign-in for your Waterstones Marketplace account that is different from your sign-in for Waterstones.com.


How shopping with Waterstones Marketplace works

If there's an item Waterstones.com doesn't have in stock - or cannot get in stock easily - our product detail pages will have the option to look on the Waterstones Marketplace.

Click on the 'Find on Marketplace' button to begin searching.

On the Waterstones Marketplace page, each item will show its availability with other sellers--this is listed in the form of separate links giving details of each item (including condition of book, a picture of its cover, how many available, and the price). The links will take you to the seller's page for the item, which shows reviews of the book and an 'Add to basket' button.

If you choose to buy a book from Waterstones Marketplace, simply click the 'Add to basket' button next to the item(s) you wish to purchase. This will take you to a new page that shows the contents of your shopping basket.

To finish shopping, click the 'Check out' button to begin processing your order.
