Who Are We? - The Early History of AddALL

We are book lovers, of course! AddALL gives you the deals you’re looking for. Here is a brief history of our website.

This website began in August of 1998, thanks to the work of network engineer Hup(Chai-Hup Tan). He worked from a small garage in Los Angeles, California, with a creative vision. As a frequent buyer of books, he wanted to save money on all his purchases. Hup launched his hobby website - AddALL - as a side job. It proved convenient for book lovers just like Hup.

Since its launch, the website has gained positive feedback from its users. Strong supportive strength of his fanbase convinced Hup to continue development. He added several more features due to user requests and promoted his work through “word of mouth.” He quit his daily job as a network engineer three years later to dedicate himself solely to AddALL. Hup and the company relocated to Singapore in 2007 for personal reasons, but the website remains unchanged.

The company is: Addall.com Pte Ltd

Company address:
Blk 579 Woodlands Dr 16, #06-579,

AddALL was built by a book buyer for book buyers.

AddALL is an independent and impartial web site, not owned by any bookstore. AddALL remains objective not to favor certain bookstores in search results.


How Do I Place an Order?

AddALL is not a bookstore, does not sell any books, but we find you the best deal where you can buy them.

You can use our main search engine. Type the ISBN, author, and/or title of the book. AddALL finds you the results of many stores with that particular book or searches. You can choose which store you want to purchase. Just click “buy it” to be directed to the store, complete your order there.

We value protecting our users’ privacy and not keeping track of your personally identifiable and ordering information. Therefore, we cannot help you to check the status of your order. Please contact the bookstore directly if you have any questions!

How does AddALL make money?

This website is our way of helping people to read more, pay less, and live life to its fullest. There is a financial incentive for ourselves also, of course. When you buy a book through our referral, we may (or may not) get a commission at no extra cost to you.

Our operation site mainly relies on this commission. Unlike other sites that aggressively sell banner ads to advertisers, we only serve banner at the bottom of some search result pages, the least disturbing corner.

So if you like this free service and don't want to see us go belly up, please visit us often and always buy books through our comparison shopping search!
