Webshop Payment Methods

Offered payment methods in our Webshops


In our Webshops www.Springer.com, www.Palgrave.com & www.Apress.com we offer a variety of different payment methods.

Which payment method is offered during the purchase, depends on the product type e.g. e-products or print products and the location. 



Electronic Product such as eBooks or PPVS can be purchased  by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, AmericanExpress) or Paypal. Electronic products cannot be purchased with advance payment or firm invoice.


Print Products such as print books or journals can be purchased with credit card (VISA, MasterCard, AmericanExpress) or Paypal.


In addition we offer the possibility to order or pre-order (not yet published) print products with Advance Payment. If the advance payment is selected, a proforma invoice will be provided by email within 24 hrs. (for available books) or as soon as the book is available (not yet published books), since prepayment is required. The shipping or the printing of the books (Print on Demand) will be triggered upon receipt of the payment. Please find more information here: Advance Payment.

  • Austria

A firm invoice means, that the invoice will be supplied within the parcel.
