Customer Services and complaints.

You may communicate with us at the address shown on the Contact Us page.

If you prefer, you may email us by clicking here.

If you complain to us in writing, we promise to acknowledge it promptly (always within 5 days), to tell you how long it will take to resolve the complaint and to keep you informed while we resolve the complaint. In most cases we would aim to resolve the complaint within 5 days of receiving it.

By listening carefully to our customers and responding positively, we find that complaints are rare. When we do receive them, we always check back to make sure that our solution is acceptable and, where appropriate and possible, change our operating systems to prevent repetition of the cause for complaint.


You have the right to cancel the order within 7 working days starting the day after receipt of the goods. We will return your payment within 30 days of the cancellation.

Customers should return unwanted goods at their own expense. Alternatively, a deduction will be made from the refund to cover the direct cost of collecting the goods.

Goods should be returned in the condition that they were supplied, with any seals and shrink-wrap attached, and the customer must pay the cost of returning the goods. If the goods are not returned at the customer's own expense, a deduction will be made from the refund to cover the direct cost of collecting the goods. We can only accept the return of opened items if they are faulty. 

If you wish to return goods after 7 working days, we will exchange them for another item of equal value if the items are in new condition. At our discretion, we may give a full refund for the item, excluding the postage and packing charge, dependant on the condition of the items being returned.

Marketing e-mails.

Joyland Books has a strict policy of never contacting our customers by email for the purposes of marketing, except for those customers who have signed up to the Mailing List. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information.
