Registration makes your checking out process easier by remembering your details whenever you return to ruralbookshop. You have the option of having ruralbookshop set a cookie on your computer that automatically signs you in when you return.

Q. Why does it sometimes ask me if this is my account ?
A. Because a cookie can be set on a computer that remembers you next time you return, it is possible that you have entered ruralbookshop after someone else on your computer (or you might be using a public or shared computer) and their cookie has signed you in as them. In this case, if the name of the customer shown is not yours, simply click the link displayed to sign out the other user, then sign back in as yourself.

Remember: If you are using a computer that is shared by other people, it would be best not to select the auto sign in option. To make sure people sharing their computer do not end up in your account always click the Sign Out link on the website. In any case, your information always remains private and can only be accessed with your email address and password, even if you are signed in to the web site.

When you have completed your shopping in ruralbookshop, select 'checkout' from the main menu. If you have not registered or signed in at this stage you will be asked to sign in or register. You will be asked to confirm your delivery details and your order, and then you may select your payment method. Upon your payment completion you will be emailed of your order transaction details.
