Are you thinking of sending DVDs or CDs as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas etc? Here are some useful tips.
How to have your order sent as a gift
Select the titles you wish to order. When you have finished and go to the Checkout / Order Form you will find an option box immediately under the heading "Shipping Address" saying
A little further down the Order Form is a box with the description:
If this order is a gift for someone else select "Yes", enter their address here and enter your address under "Billing Address"
It's that simple. A zero-priced receipt will be enclosed with the gift saying who sent it, together with the message, if any. [Top]
If gift, enter message to be enclosed (optional)
Plan in advance
Allow time in case what you want is not in stock and has to be obtained.
At the time of writing there are more than 13,000 titles in Buywell's on-line catalogue. This provides a wide choice but is far too great a range for copies of everything to be available at all times. If you want to choose something a little out of the ordinary with a deadline for some special occasion, avoid the possibility of a disappointing delay by placing your order well in advance. [Top]
Titles on Australian labels
Most titles are almost always in stock and any that are not can usually be obtained in just a few days. [Top]
Titles on International labels
The enormous range is just too much for anyone to stock - including distributors - so be aware that they may need to be imported, with timeframes varying between distributors. [Top]
I've left it a bit late. How can I avoid a delay?
If you are pressed for time, include some alternatives. Just add some extra selections and include some remarks in the Comments box on the Checkout page / Order Form saying which selections are second or third etc choices. This will increase the value of the order and the cost of shipping but we will adjust that to the actual cost and weight of what is sent. Alternatively, place an order for your preferred title(s) then write a separate email message about your order giving possible alternatives to ordersbuywell.com [Top]
What else could I do perhaps?
If it seems there is likely to be a delay, you might consider advising the intended recipient of your gift that a nice present has been arranged though it may not arrive until after the date of the special event, but that you feel sure it will be thought well worth waiting for. [Top]
