From just £30 a year; no monthly service charges

If you're based in the UK and sell old and out-of-print books online, you need your own personal website where customers can see your books and your books alone.

This is particularly true if you list books on Abe or Amazon then you also need an inexpensive and separate personal website so you can operate independently as well, to promote your books to your own list of customers.

Our £30 a year personal website service with its own website address, search-engine and shopping basket gives you this.

Unlike others we do not charge a set-up fee or a monthly service fee.  We do not stop you from collecting customer emails for your mailing list and we do not return customers to the main listing site straightaway, allowing them to browse through your stock before returning.

The benefits of your own bookshop ...

You can show up to four pictures against each book. There is no extra charge for this service. Condition is the most impoprtant factor in determining price and customers can see exactly what they are getting.

You get your own directly clickable bookselling website address such as You can now advertise or promote your own books to whoever you want, wherever you want, whenever you want.

Use personal emails and social media such as Facebook and Twitter to send your own contacts to search or browse through your books without them being shown and offered millions of books from thousands of other booksellers.

We also provide a wants list for you to list particular requests from customers or to look for books in your specialist area  - if these books become listed then you are sent notifications of those listings.

So easy to operate. And help (not that you're likely to need it) is available from a human being on the end of a phone line in the UK.

If you've already got your own domain name, link it to your personal search-engine and shopping basket on your own bookshop. Your website with us can also link back to your own domain name. You can also have your own logo at the head of your UKBW page

Bonus internet exposure ...

As well as appearing on your own personal website, your books are also listed on the main UKBookWorld website and, as a free bonus, on the major international book-finding portal website.

The costs (from just £30 a year) ...

Your personal website with us costs just £30 a year  for listing up to 1,000 titles (£45 a year for 5,000; £60 a year for 10,000).  There's no set-up fee; no monthly  service charge, no hidden extras (although you can optionally upgrade to the UK Book Gallery search engine optimization service).

Any restrictions?

Our service is available for UK and Europe based booksellers only and all books must be priced in pounds sterling.

So as to maintain a reasonable quality of book entries across the service, we automatically filter out books priced below £4.
