Who is Posman Books?

We are a family-owned independent mini-chain of three bookstores in New York City. We’ve been selling books (and other things) for more than twenty years and we are proud to be part of the bookselling community. In 2012 New York Magazine voted us “Best Bookstore” and we think we earned it with our great selections of adult and kids books, toys, and beautiful greeting cards.

Payment Methods

We currently take payments via PayPal. If you have an account, you can pay with PayPal balance, directly from your bank, or using a credit card, but you don’t need to open a PayPal account; you can make one-time payments with any credit card that PayPal supports.

PayPal is a safe and easy way to make a secure online payment. It allows online shoppers to enter and store credit card and billing information in one place, thereby eliminating the need to store and update this information on multiple sites.

To change or cancel an order, contact us directly at or by telephone (212.983.1111), and we can assist you directly.

About Credit Card Security
