News at Office Watch
Secure Web site
From 8 Aug 2014 the Office Watch online store will only work in secure SSL mode.
We're using 'best practice' SSL (TLS v1.2, AES 256bit encryption) which is the European and US government standard. TLS 1.2 is supported by all major browsers.
For some time we've had SSL secure (the lock icon in your browser) as an option, but the time has come to make the full changeover.
The Office Watch online store does NOT record your credit card or other financial details. In most cases all that is saved online by us is your email address, name and the password for accessing the site.
We’re delighted to announce that a second edition of Office 2010: the real startup guide is now available for new and past purchasers.

There’s an entirely new section on the Office 2010 interface. An in-depth look at the Ribbon, Quick Access Toolbar and Backstage plus options for changing it to suit you. Outlook 2010 is covered separately as an extensive look at the many panes available and how to arrange them.
Past purchasers of 'Office 2010: the real startup guide' have been upgraded to the October 2010, second edition FREE. All you have to do is login to your personal account at shop.office-watch.com and download the ebook again. The second edition will be downloaded automatically to entirely replace your existing copy.

From today you do NOT need to use Paypal - while the Paypal option gives the fastest delivery to you, we know some customers don't like using Paypal. We said we were working on an alternative and here it is: You can now choose to pay with Visa, Mastercard, Amex or Diners Club and we'll charge using our Editor-in-Chief's Australian business. There's no surcharge but the price charged has to be in Aussie dollars. The details are explained when you choose the payment option during check-out.
Welcome to the new Office Watch e-book shop!
The success of the Desktop Search Handbook has meant we've had to totally redesign the shopping system.
With this new system you'll be able to get a fresh and updated copy of your ebooks at any time. We'll also be able to provide more payment methods.
At first you'll be able to pay with Visa, Mastercard, Amex etc or transfer from your Paypal account. We will be introducing other payment methods in the near future (this new shopping site will let us do that).
Naturally any new web site will have problems or things that could be better we'd like to know where they are. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments and details of the page/s where there's a problem.
