Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay by Credit/Debit Card? When you go to the CHECKOUT and insert your details, at the bottom of the page it shows your order and the total cost. Below that is where it only gives the option of PayPal and states “Pay via PayPal; you can pay with your credit card if you don’t have a PayPal account”. PayPal is just the conduit we use to transfer monies to us. Click on the yellow PayPal bar. This will launch a window to Log in to PayPal and immediately below the blue LOG IN bar it should say OR then another bar with the text Pay by Debit or Credit Card. Select Pay by Debit or Credit Card.

When will I receive my E-Book? Your download links should arrive within minutes of your purchase. Please do not wait weeks to contact us if your E-Books do not arrive. If you have not received your link within 24 hours then please email onlineshop@dgfhs.org.uk. This is a very unusual circumstance and has only happened twice in over 500 sales.

What will I receive as a PDF? You will receive 2 PDFs in a single ZIP file. Each will be a complete version of the book and each will contain the same information. However, they will be formatted differently. The READ version will be easy to read on-screen or to print out as sequential pages. The PRINT version will enable you to print the book using two-sided printing to recreate our A5 book.

How can I retrieve my PDFs? When you complete your purchase, you will be directed to a Thank You page which includes download links for your files. If you leave this page without downloading or if you lose your PDF you will also receive an email with links to your purchased PDFs. Whilst the PDF never expires we will only retain these until we republish the book. If you require a download of your E-Book after it has been re-published please email onlineshop@dgfhs.org.uk and we will forward it to you.
