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.
Due to Covid-19, delivery times may be longer than normal in your area. Learn more

Booksellers can cancel returns they have initiated themselves, as long as the refund has not yet completed. Completed refunds cannot be reversed.
For orders placed on AbeBooks.com, booksellers can also cancel buyer-initiated returns for the reason ‘Buyer does not want item’ only, and the return must be cancelled within two days of being initiated by the buyer. After two days, the return is considered accepted and cannot be cancelled.
For orders placed on any of AbeBooks European domains booksellers cannot cancel buyer-initiated returns, regardless of return reason.
To cancel a return or refund:
Please note that if the buyer has provided tracking information for the return of the book, you will be unable to cancel the return. Instead, we’ll provide the tracking number and you can follow up with the shipping company or the buyer.
Note: If you are trying to cancel a return because you have not received the book back, please use the Notify AbeBooks of a Missing Shipment option instead.
