Frequently Asked Questions

Why is your free shipping threshold so high?

CBD is not a profit-making business and exists as a ministry to equip South Africa with great Christian resources as the best price possible. As such, our margins are as low as we can make them to cover our minimum costs. Offering free shipping costs us money and is only justifiable for us if we sell enough to cover the courier costs. We’d encourage you to co-ordinate with friends or others from your church and place a combined order if you are below the minimum for free shipping and wish to save on those costs too. Or take the opportunity to buy a few extra books for later reading!

Why can’t I find a product in your search?

We have over 10’000 products listed on our website and in our stores. Sometimes the search function can’t always find what you’re looking for the first time. Here are some guidelines that might help you get the result you are looking for. If you still can’t find the book you are looking for please feel free to contact us at orders@christianbooks.co.za or on 021 674 6931.

How do I open and read my eBook?

What is your return policy?

You can find our return policy here. If you wish to lodge a return please contact us at orders@christianbooks.co.za or on 021 674 6931.

What denomination or religious group do you belong to?

CBD is an independent, evangelical ministry. That means we believe the Bible is God’s Word and the ultimate source authority, and we believe the only way to be saved is through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We’d encourage our customers to consider the wealth of resources from the Reformed tradition however we gladly stock and sell a broad range of evangelical books.
