AbeBooks is focused on the health and safety of our employees, and based on regional regulations and social distancing requirements this has resulted in longer than usual response times from Customer Support. Please be patient.
If you have a specific question about an order, we recommend contacting the seller directly. This is often the fastest way to obtain order information. View instructions.

When you shop on AbeBooks you can save your credit card details within your AbeBooks account. You can update or remove saved credit cards anytime, as well as add additional cards. Your credit card data is encrypted on our secure server and is never shared with anyone.
The instructions below are also available as a video tutorial.
Please note that saved credit card numbers cannot be edited. Instead, simply delete the old card then save it again as a new card.
**Note: Assigning a Card Description to the card, i.e. ‘My Card’, ‘Corporate Card’ or ‘Rewards Card,’ will make it easy to identify for future purchases and updates. You can only use a particular Card Description once – for instance, if you have described a card as ‘My Card,’ you must use a different description if you add a second card, i.e. ‘My Second Card’.
Once the [Save Changes] button has been clicked and your details have been successfully submitted, you will see a green check-mark icon with a message saying, ‘Thank you – Your card details have been saved.’ If there are any errors or incomplete or missing fields on the page, an error message will be displayed.
