Product information

Description

Description:

Delivery of bound books or instalments submitted by publishers, distributors or authorised education centres, including video and audio material. They cannot contain advertisements other than those on the cover and there is no minimum quantity for delivery. 

With the aim of helping small publishers, Correos will maintain the Programa PostLibris for another year to offer conditions and discounts so that they can deliver by mail. The discounts will depend on the weight of the books to be sent and the preferred type of delivery.

Now all you have to do is tell us where you it delivered to: 

Spain:

You must also take several requirements into account:

• Small deliveries may be sent from any Correos Post Office. For large deliveries, go to a Correos Admisión Masiva Unit in your province.

• The "Books" postal charge may only be used by publishing companies, book distributors, educational centres and distance-learning centres. The sender must demonstrate that they are carrying out any of these business activities with official documentation.

• A QR code and access to specific rates must be included.
