Pricing information including packaging and postage (P&P) are available on the website for each item for sale. All item prices are exclusive of P&P and include any applicable taxes.

We use third party organisations to collect payments using their secure online processes. We do not handle or manage personal or credit card information directly ourselves.


Our aim is to post all items within 2-3 days of ordering and confirmation of funds. We use Royal Mail delivery services or a trusted UK courier depending on the location and size of box.

In the unlikely event of an item being delivered damaged, please let us know within 48 hours using the email address provided: shop@ceratopia.co.uk

Returns, Refunds & Cancellations

We are confident that our customers will be delighted with their purchases. If goods are accidentally damaged during delivery, our liability for that damage is limited to the repair, refund, exchange or replacement of the goods or to the value of the original sales price.

We do not refund items which have been damaged by yourself during unpacking.

To enable an exchange or refund to take place for an item damaged during delivery, the customer is responsible for informing us at Ceratopia Books, by email, of the item damaged within 48 hours of delivery. The customer is responsible for sending the item back to us at Ceratopia Books and the customer will pay for that postage. On receipt of the damaged item, if necessary and if an exchange is agreed, we will pay postage on the return item.

Since we deliver books very soon after order receipt and confirmation of funds, it is difficult to handle cancellations. Cancellations are accepted before item delivery or before a maximum of 7 working days after order receipt. In this case the order value will be refunded. Cancellation refunds will be payable if the ordered goods are received back by Ceratopia Books in the original order condition.
