The Best Place To Find Deals On Books In Nepal
By Riya Pant
If you love reading books, you probably know how expensive books can be. Especially if you are a student with no steady flow of income, it can be difficult to cut down on the little pocket money that you have to buy books. Although it is worth it, it is not always possible.
You are lucky if you live in urban areas where there are libraries you can visit to save money and read tons of books at the same time. But anywhere else, it’s not easy to even find a library.
And while bookstores have a larger selection of books and are a little easier to find, books are still expensive.
If you are an avid reader, you have probably scoured the internet looking for cheaper alternatives to find books in Nepal. And you most likely came across Books Mandala.
Books Mandala is just that cheaper alternative to buy books you were looking for.
Books Mandala is Nepal’s largest online bookstore with an aim to promote reading to a generation that is visibly lacking an interest in doing so. With our ever-growing catalogue currently capping off over 35000 titles, there is probably all that you’re looking for in here. Physically operated from Pokhara, we have stores in Gairidhara, Kathmandu and Lakeside, Pokhara.
When you visit our official website, you can browse our selection; we have books in all genres and subgenres. From the rarest to international best sellers, you can find these books at a much lower price than anywhere else.
And you can have them delivered straight to your doorway.
What are the deals we offer?
Bundle Deals: We list books in bundles for special discount every once in a while. From the most popular book series to standalones in a collection, these combo deals are available on special occasions.
Do you have a favorite author whose books you would like to have in your collection? Or a favorite genre? We offer these packaged deals for that exact purpose.
Coupon Codes: Alongside the amazing deals listed on the website, Books Mandala also offers coupon codes from time to time to give you discounts on your purchase. All the coupon codes are announced on our social media. Coupon codes are created exclusively for different organisations, books clubs as well as our online communities. If you join our discord server or subscribe to our newsletter, you’ll be able to get your hands on these discount codes while they are still valid.
Buying used books is a great way to save money while still being able to read and collect books. The used books listed in our website are imported in large amounts at a time, hence why they cost much lower than their original price. A little secret; more than half of these aren’t even used. They are as good as new, only cost low because they are brought in thousands of boxes at a time.
Currently, all used books are listed for Rs. 250 only. That’s like half or more off the price of these books if you were to buy them somewhere else.
Shop now to secure your book before someone else eyes them.
We also offer ‘buy one get one’ deals on some books every once in a while. Again, connect with us on socials and subscribe to our newsletter to get an alert when these deals go live.
How To Use Coupon Codes?
If you happen to have a coupon code, here’s how to use it.
After you have added all the books to the cart, begin the process of checkout. On the checkout page, on the right side, you’ll find an order summary along with an empty field for a coupon code. Enter the code and click on the ‘Apply’ button. And proceed with the check out as normal.
Note: Discounts from coupon codes are not offered for books from the ‘Deals’ section.
How to Buy Books From Books Mandala?
You can either pick up books at our stores if you live in Kathmandu or Pokhara.
If you don’t, you can shop online and have the books delivered to your doorstep.
When you’re done shopping, go to the checkout page. There you will have to fill in some personal information and delivery address details. Finally, pick the payment method that works the best for you.
What Payment Methods Are Available?
Did you know, we accept payments through all the major payment gateways in Nepal, like eSewa and Khalti? Well, now you do. You can also choose to pay with cash on delivery for deliveries inside Kathmandu and Pokhara? Just wait for the order to arrive and handover the charges to the delivery agent. Simple!
You Can Even Purchase Books For Gifting Purposes
Want to give someone book/s? We’ve got you covered on that as well.
If you want to gift books to someone - because let’s be honest, books make the best gifts - we can gift wrap it and write out a little note on your behalf; for a small extra price.
Be sure to choose the ‘Wrap for Gift’ option and leave the message if you have any on the ‘Delivery Notes’ field. Fill out the address and contact information of the receiver; and fill your own email address if you want to track the order.
How To Be Sure Your Order Was Placed?
After the checkout is completed and the payment has been gone through, a confirmation message will appear on the page.
To confirm the orders, you will receive a call of confirmation from our team. Then, your order is set and ready to get to you. The confirmation call will usually be made within a few hours to a day.
The details on the delivery will be emailed to you on the address you provide upon the confirmation of order. From there, you can track the order yourself until you get it.
Most often, deliveries take a few business days. Unless a major inconvenience strikes, it will not take longer. However, for any unfortunate delay, you will be notified.
How Much Is The Delivery Cost?
Besides the order cost, the delivery cost depends upon the place of delivery and the weight of the order.
Delivery inside Pokhara is FREE! So, if you live in Pokhara, you lucked out. Inside Kathmandu Valley, the delivery cost is Rs. 80; regardless of the weight of the order.
For deliveries elsewhere, the more the order weight, the more will be charged. Visit the FAQs on our website to view the specifics.
Now that you have found a great way to buy books, treat yourself to some books through Books Mandala. If you are still not sold, we give out bookmarks on every purchase! Isn’t that cool?
