We're a British, tax-paying company. We're passionate about the books we sell, our brilliant customers, and the independent bookshops we support. We offer the advantages of online shopping, including our extensive range and competitive pricing, while simultaneously helping high street bookshops by giving them commission and an online presence.
We don't want any more independent bookshops to close, that's why we give them a cut from every single order on Hive. Whether you order books, films, music, games, or anything else, your chosen bookshop will receive commission. They will receive a minimum of 10% on the net value of all book orders, rising to 25% when you select store collection. We pay 8% on eBooks and 3% on entertainment products. Bookshops receive their commission monthly.
