Processing of Individual Orders/Shipping Information

Media Mail: Our default shipping method is Media Mail. Media Mail delivers to most residential addresses in the U.S. within 8 to 12 working days since receipt of your order. Unfortunately, media mail cannot be shipped to P.O. Box and military addresses. Media Mail is not trackable nor insurable: customers assume all risk for loss and damages.

Residential Priority: If you wish to insure and track your shipment with a tracking number, select the Residential Shipping method (at additional cost). Please note that there are differentiated shipping rates for Hawai’i and Alaska for this option. Please select the correct rate and destination state at checkout to avoid delays. Below are the options for Residential Priority shipping:

  • US Contiguous Residential: Residential shipment is traceable and insured at additional costs displayed at checkout. This shipping option is recommended if you are ordering more than one (1) textbook. Typical delivery time via US contiguous ground is 8-15 working days, depending on the destination. Select “Contiguous US Residential” at checkout to track your shipment. This option is not available for Hawai’i and Alaska. Expedite shipping is available to the lower 48 states.
  • Hawai’i & Alaska Residential: If your order is shipping to Hawai’i or Alaska, and you want to track your shipment, select this option instead of Media Mail. Note that residential shipping rates to Hawai’i/Alaska are higher than rates for US contiguous states. Allow 5 extra working days for shipments to HI and AK.

Handling Fee: A single handling fee of $3 is charged at checkout for the entire order for both Media Mail and Residential Priority. For returns, please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
