How do I create a customer account?

There are two ways to create a customer account:

  1. Click on the Register button in the top right-hand corner of the website and complete the form.
  2. When placing your first order on our website a customer account will automatically be generated for you using the details entered in the shopping cart

What are the benefits of creating an account?

Creating an account has many benefits:

  • Quicker ordering - the shopping cart will auto-populate with you billing address and you can store multiple alternate addresses
  • View past orders
  • Easily update details
  • Create and send wishlists
  • Request out of stock books

How do I access and edit my customer account?

To access your customer profile when you visit our website, simply log in and then click on your name which will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the website. This will take you to a summary of your details, where you can edit your details, add addresses, change your password and more. The menu in the left-hand column will allow you to view past orders, wishlists and out of stock requests.

Some books on the website have a Request Item button rather than an Add to Cart button. What are these books and how do I request the book? 

There are many classic natural history titles which are now out-of-print and difficult to find. Cogger's Reptiles and amphibians of Australia or Honeyeaters and their allies of Australia from the National Photographic Index series, for example. While we do have copies of these books from time to time they rarely make it to our website as we have long waiting lists of customers wanting to purchase a copy.

To alleviate this problem we list a selection of hard-to-find out-of-print books on our website as Out of Stock Requests. These stock records are different from the books we offer for sale on our website. A requestable book cannot be purchased but you can add your name to the waiting list for a copy. To do this just click on the Request Item button next to the record and complete the form. Your name will then be added to the waiting list and when a copy becomes available we will contact you. Please note there is no obligation to purchase when a copy does become available, we simply offer you first refusal.

You can keep track of items you have requested via your customer account.

Our back-ordering system is very efficient so don't hesitate to let us know if there are other titles you are seeking, even if they are not listed on our website.

Can I view my past orders?

Yes. Once you are logged in simply click on your name in purple in the top right-hand corner. Your profile summary will appear at the top of the left-hand column, below the Andrew Isles logo. Simply click on Past Orders to view all orders placed since the launch of our new website in February 2010.
