How to pay

The Illuminate Publishing website allows you to order directly over the internet in a few easy steps using the secure and respected PayPal service.  No Paypal account is needed, credit/debit cards also processed securely by Paypal.

You will need your credit or debit card details to hand, when you start to order.

You will receive an email confirmation of your order and payment if you order online.

In most cases we deal with individual orders from students and teachers. However if you need to buy on behalf of your institution via invoice please email for any special ordering instructions and delivery/payment conditions.  Please note that we can accept payment by cheque but we will levy a handling fee of £1.00 per cheque.  This is because we are charged a significant fee by the bank to process each cheque.  Please  contact us for further details.

Promotional Codes
