Terms of Sale

For all bulk orders, please fill out a Purchase From to place an order. Before submitting  your order, you will be asked to agree by the terms of sale.

Terms of Sale

All orders must be paid in full prior to shipment. Payment must be made in US dollars. All major credit cards are accepted via Paypal. Temporal Publishing will automatically apply a five percent discount and waive the handling fee for all orders of 100 books or more.

Our books are produced via Print-on-Demand. Please allow 2 weeks lead time when placing your orders.

New: Effective February 2019, our handling fee will increase by 0.3% in order to account for merchant service fees incurred in Paypal transactions.


Paypal Option – The Paypal invoicing/payment is our default setting. The payment is made through the Paypal invoice via your email address. In the interest of your privacy, Temporal Publishing processes all of its credit card transactions through Paypal. All credit card information is encrypted and handled by Paypal through industry-leading technology. Temporal Publishing does not handle any part of the payment process. You do not need to have a Paypal account to process a Paypal invoice. Simply click on a “Pay Invoice” button on the emailed invoice to process your payment with the credit card of your choice. Once your payment is submitted, we will fulfill your order within 24 hours. Shipping of your order will occur within 10 business days after fulfillment.

*A Paypal invoice allows only the original recipient of the invoice to make the payment. If the invoice is forwarded to another email other than the one the invoice was originally generated for, Paypal will not accept your payment. If the person who placed the order is not in charge of the payment, please provide the email address of the person who will process the Purchase Order.

Check/Money Order Option – The other option is to pay with a cashier’s check or money order. Please indicate this option under the Tax & Shipping section in the Purchase Form. You will still be emailed a Paypal invoice to review your order and other information. This option requires a 10-day hold on your order to allow for receipt and clearing of the payment. Returned checks are subject to a $25.00 fee. Please submit payments in full.

International Sales – please refer to the section of Handling Fee.


Please email us your Reseller’s Certificate to sales@temporalpublishing.com at your earliest convenience. CA sales tax will automatically be added to the invoice unless we have your Reseller’s Certificate on file.


Our default shipping method is Commercial Ground. Commercial Ground delivers to most commercial addresses in the 48 contiguous states in the U.S. within 8 to 14 business days (up to 14 to 24 days in November, December and January due to holiday seasons). Shipments are traceable. P.O.Box and military addresses cannot be used as a ship-to addresses.

If you require expedite services, opt for the Commercial 2nd Day. Request your shipping preference under Tax & Shipping section of the Purchase Form. The Commercial 2nd Day option is substantially more expensive than our default shipping, and varies significantly with the destination address. Commercial 2nd Day option is only available through Paypal payment. Commercial 2nd Day delivers to most commercial addresses in all 50 states in the U.S. by the 12th day after we receive the payment (10 days to print, 2 days to deliver). Shipping to certain locations in Alaska and Hawai’i may require additional time in transit. P.O.Box and military addresses cannot be used as a ship-to addresses. Please contact us at contact@temporalpublishing.com for more shipping options.

We do not ship via FedEx or using a company UPS shipping account (please contact us for any inquiries).


3.2% of the sales value per transaction will be invoiced as a handling fee for our default shipping option (commercial ground).

4.4% of the sales value per transaction will be invoiced for all international sales. *

*For international sales, an international wire transfer may be more cost effective. Should you choose to wire your payment (over our default Paypal payment), you will only be charged for $16 USD as a handling fee instead of 4.4% of the sales value, however you may incur a fee from the bank you are wiring from. Please note that the international wire transfer fee that you incur from your bank is your responsibility, and should not be deducted from the funds that you are wiring to Temporal Publishing, LLC. Please let us know your payment preference.

All returns must be accompanied by a new TP return code, books should be in the same condition as they were shipped out. Please follow the return procedure outlined below.
