    Well. The process is easy, just create account and select whatever book you want , add it in your cart and fill the payment details and work is done . The company will send books direct to your doorstep. Easy and Money saving idea

    Probably the worst use of web site - ever

    Site is clunky, slow and labyrinthine, difficult to read or navigate, even for the simplest of searches. Ordering procedure (of a simple gift card) is unclear and Byzantine to say the least, certainly belongs to that epoch and is as complicated. Problems start with checkout - all seems well if unclear, until a message that your transaction has been authorized appears... Then it all goes blank and resurfaces somewhere in the middle of the process! Several times. Uncertain whether I placed an order or not I rang to check. HAVE to leave a voicemail, they'll get back to you. Six hours later, nothing! Ring again. This time reply in minutes - "no, you haven't been charged" (remains to be seen!) - try again. Try again - same story... And so on and on... Also nowhere on site to complain... Maybe Foyles should just stick to paper and delivery boys...
