We offer various United States Postal Service shipping methods: Media Mail (for media such as books and CDs only), Standard Post (formerly Parcel Post), Priority Mail, and Express Mail for US shipments; and Priority Mail International and Express Mail International for Canadian shipments. Shipping costs are calculated by the total weight of the order and shipping method chosen, with a small handling charge added to cover costs of packaging, transportation, etc.
Most items ship in 1 to 2 business days. Items that may take longer will have such information displayed in their descriptions. In the event that an item you have ordered is delayed for some reason, we will notify you via email and/or telephone and you may decide how to proceed (wait, cancel item, cancel order, etc.).
For orders of $50 or more (subtotal) shipped TO addresses in Clinton, Franklin, and Essex counties in New York State, Media Mail/Standard Post shipping is free. Faster shipping methods are discounted by 30% to 50%.
For orders of $50 or more (subtotal) shipped to US addresses outside the areas above, Media Mail is free and Standard Post is discounted by 70%. Faster shipping methods are discounted by 20% to 40%.
For orders of $50 or more (subtotal, USD) shipped to Canadian addresses, Priority Mail International is discounted by 15%, and Express Mail International is discounted by 10%.
NOTE: Shipping discounts are based on our normal shipping rates and are applied only when the order subtotal (total of cart contents after any other discounts have been applied) is $50 or more. The subtotal does NOT include sales tax and shipping.
You may calculate your shipping costs before actually entering the checkout process by using our Shipping Calculator. Once you have added items to your shopping cart, go to your cart and scroll down to view the subtotal. Beneath this, if you are not registered and logged in, there will be a form to enter your shipping country and zip/postal code. Once these are entered, click on the "Calculate Shipping" link (if you are logged in, you will only need to click this link; you won't have to enter country and zip/postal code). The available shipping methods will be returned along with cost and estimated shipping time for each method. You may then select your shipping method at this point or wait until you are actually in the checkout process.
NOTE: The shipping times mentioned reflect the processing time after cleared payment is received. So orders paid by check/money order will take longer to ship.
