Searching & Ordering


  • You can’t search for ISBNs and Titles on our website but we do have access to a database which contains thousands of books so we’re always happy to help you find the books you need.
  • Please email or call us with as much information as you’ve got, and we’ll get back to you straight away.


  • Textbooks from Oxford University Press, Pearson, Hodder Education, Collins and many more are generally discounted at between 15% to 20% but on large orders, it can be more. Please always ask us for a quote.
  • Fiction, Dictionaries, some Revision titles, and paperbacks will usually get discounts of between 20% and 40%.
  • Generally the bigger the order, the bigger the discount.
  • Please see our special promotions throughout the year including our Summer Back to School Promotions.

  • We’re really flexible on discounts and we match or beat offers from other suppliers or publishers. Always ask us before placing an order elsewhere as you could save more with QDS Books
If your order value is low, you’re only ordering a few books or ordering from a small publisher we reserve the right not to give a discount. If that's the case we’ll let you know on the quote.


  • For our very best discounts please ask us for a quote.
  • All we need from you is the ISBN, Title and quantity you need. If you already have a quote please let us know so we can try and beat it.
  • If you don’t have the ISBN please supply us with other details such as author, publisher, format and web link so we quote you for the correct book.
If you’re asking us to match or beat a quote just let us know what you’ve been offered.
