We are delighted to announce the launch of the RCVS Shop on our website. This new service offers users the chance to order RCVS publications (such as the Directory of Veterinary Practices and the VN Training Handbook) and RCVS Trust gifts online.
Rather than having to phone the College during office hours, write out order forms and put cheques in the post, you can now browse through the electronic catalogues in your own time, make your selection and submit your order online instead. All details are encrypted and sent via a secure server and we aim to dispatch your order within 14 days.
There are a number of discounts available on certain publications and gifts and of course any purchase from the range of RCVS gifts will support the work of the RCVS Trust. Holders of the RCVS credit card can enjoy a further 10% discount when purchasing RCVS gifts.
In addition to the two online shops, you may also purchase RCVS Library services, either by depositing money into your account or arranging to pay an invoice; you may also open a new Library & Information Service account from here if you do not already have one.
Ultimately, we aim to expand the e-commerce facility by providing members with the option of paying retention fees and examination fees, quickly and simply, over the Internet.
Regular users of the RCVS website will also have noticed a new look to the homepage. To coincide with the launch of the new RCVS Shop, it has been designed to improve access to all the latest information provided on our site. Further developments are in the pipeline so watch this space!
