This is an interesting alternative to Amazon. It supports local bookstores. It doesn't have any members in the Republic but they have a few in the North.

I am not clear how it works. I think that you order and pay for a book as usual and they post it to you. But you can nominate a bookshop to get the commission?

Gutter Bookshop - Great bookshops in Dalkey and Temple Bar

Ranelagh - my local - they were cycling around delivering books during lockdown 1.

OK, yesterday, I wanted to buy a book. It was only about €3.50 including postage from the Book Depository.

Today, I wanted another one and it was €5 from the Book Depository and €8 from Easons. So I thought I would buy it from Easons. Despite it saying Total price €8, when I went to pay, they added €3 for postage.

I don't know how a company in the UK can deliver a book to Ireland for €3.50 or even €5. So the Book Depository is cheaper and you pay the price which comes up on the screen.
