Buying online

The product catalogue on this website covers all of OUP's range of titles, including books, electronic products, and printed music, except for English Language Teaching and Oxford Education books and products, and selected items which are supplied free of charge.

As well as books, you can also buy personal subscriptions to many of our online products on this site: more help with Online Product Personal Subscriptions

Institutional subscriptions to online products are not available for purchase through this website - please see the individual product pages for details of how to order, or visit the Online Products gateway to broswe the full list of available titles.

Ebooks are available from many ebook retailers and institutional ebook suppliers, and are not directly sold by OUP. View our current list of ebook suppliers.

Payment options

Customers in most countries can order online using credit or debit cards.

Credit cards

Currently we accept VISA and Mastercard, as well as Maestro debit cards.

Card payment security

Many banks are now introducing an extra level of security for online purchases called 3D- Secure. This aims to reduce the opportunity for fraud in online transactions. During the check-out process, you may be asked by your bank either to register or, if you already have registered, to provide a password or a second PIN. You will find this happening as you use other online stores. Mastercard call this 'Mastercard SecureCode' and VISA call it 'Verified by Visa'

Promotional codes

Many promotional codes will be applied to your order automatically when you follow a link from outside our website, for instance in an email marketing message, or when you click on an offer on our site.

However, if you have been given a promotional code, you will also have a chance to enter the code during the checkout process, when we ask you for your payment information.

Sheet Music

Sheet music is available to purchase or to rent from OUP. For more information, see the separate sheet music help section.

If you have more than one promotional code in your browser session, you will normally see the discount of the highest value applied.
