Article Summary

Shopping Basket

The Shopping Basket drop down menu at the top right of the website shows a summary of the most recent items added to your basket as well as convenient links to view your full shopping basket and checkout. This menu is also available on mobile devices using the right pull-out menu found at the top of every page.

Click the 'Add to Basket’ button on the search results page or department pages to add a quantity of one of the specified product to your shopping basket. There is also an ‘Add to Basket’ button on product details pages which will allow you to specify a quantity. You can also manually add items via the shopping basket which can be helpful if you are ordering from a Koorong catalogue. In My Shopping Basket simply enter the Koorong catalogue number or product ISBN in the white box which says Product Code and click 'Add to Basket'. It will automatically add a quantity of one which you can change in the Basket product listing. You can easily change the quantity of a product, remove an item from your basket, and move products to a Wishlist to purchase at a later time.

If you have an Online Offer Code please enter the 8-digit code in the box provided under the Order Total in My Shopping Basket and press apply. If you have a Member Reward Coupon or Gift Card you can enter the code in the box provided in Payment during the Checkout process.

Prices displayed in the shopping basket are displayed in AUD by default. We recommend you log in using the ‘Log In’ links to see the most accurate pricing information available, including any discounts or other factors. To see an estimate of your order total in your local currency, click the 'Change' link located next to the current currency at the top of the shopping basket. Please note that foreign currency prices are an estimate based on recent exchange rates, and that the final total you are charged may be different depending on your credit card provider and any other foreign currency fees incurred. Once you have logged in you will see your name displayed, and more accurate details will be displayed based on your location. You won’t need to log in again to place your order during this session.

Our shopping basket relies on ‘cookies’ in order to work correctly. If your web browser or firewall/anti-virus software is set to block cookies, then the shopping basket will not function correctly. Please also note that if you delete your cookies, any current items in your shopping basket will be lost.


Once you have added the items you wish to order to your Shopping Basket you are ready to Checkout. There are five pages in Checkout: Shopping Basket, Delivery, Payment, Review & Submit, and Receipt. You can update any of your delivery or contact details during the checkout process. If you have saved a credit card previously you may be presented with a quick checkout button for more details please see the section below.

Log In

If you haven’t already logged into your account, when you click the ‘Checkout’ button the site will take you to the Log In page.

Should you not wish to create a Koorong Membership account, you can check-out as a guest.
