Shipping & Returns

 

Orders are usually processed the same day or within 24 hours of receipt (Monday-Friday). Unless otherwise requested, all U.S. orders are shipped by ground. Note that items may come faster than indicated below or slower if items are held up in transit. (Note that transit delays, which are rare, are beyond our control.)
 
All orders have a base shipment charge of $2.50 for standard and $5 for priority, plus a per item charge. Each item is assigned a value of “A” through “H” for weight or bulk, with “A” being the lightest and “H,” the heaviest. Most books fall into the “B” and “C” categories, with bulky items or items heavier than two pounds costing more to ship and falling into the “D” and higher shipping classes.
