Ordering FAQ

September 14, 2020


Q: How do I log in to the bookshop site?

A: You do not need to log in to the site. No need to use your Bryn Mawr or Haverford id and password.  Just start adding items to your cart and continue to checkout.  You'll have an option at the end of the transaction to create a bookshop account, but an account is not necessary to buy from our site.

Q: How do I use my OneCard to pay for purchases?

A: Unfortnately, our site is not set up to accept OneCard payments.  But there is a workaround.  If you know you have sufficient funds to cover your purchase, then follow these steps:

1) Choose gift certificate for payment method
 
2) Enter this "dummy" number in the gift certificate number field (nclude the G and the space): G 7777777
 
3) Include your student id number -- the number on the front of the card -- in the ID number field on the checkout page.
 
4) Add a note in the comment field saying "please charge my onecard"
 

Q: How do I know my order is ready for pickup?

A: When your order is ready, you will receive an email with a link to our pick-up appointment site. (Pick-up appointments are different from Browse & Shop appointments.)  Please wait for this email before you set a time to come get your order.  We process most orders within a few hours.

Q: I am studying remotely.  How do I get the books I need?

A: We can ship books to you anywhere in the world.  Just place your order on this website.  Most orders are packed for UPS pickup by the next business day. Most shipments east of the Mississippi take just two business days, and within the mid-Atlantic region it's just one day.

Q: How do I find out what books are required for my classe?

A: Go to this page bookshop.brynmawr.edu/college and click on term, then department, then course and then section.  Required materials appear at the bottom of the screen.
