During Fall & Spring textbook rush, orders could take anywhere from 48-72 hours to be processed. You will receive two e-mail confirmations: one confirming that we have received your order and a second stating that your order has been shipped.
Your order will go through several stages throughout the order process. When your order status reads "picking", we are currently processing your order. The next stage of the order process reads "packed", which means we have the order ready to be shipped or picked up or it has already shipped out. You should expect to receive your package shortly after it has been packed as long as you have provided us with the correct physical address.
We strive to provide you with the best deals on your textbooks, however, in the event that a used copy is unavailable, we'll go ahead and send you the new copy of the textbook. The Grand Total

This means that the professor has not yet adopted a textbook for this course. Just keep checking on our website or go to class for further instruction from your professor.

If your credit card is being declined there are several things to look for:
- Billing address - Make sure that what you have entered into your account information matches your card's billing address exactly as shown on your card account.
- Pre-authorization - In some instances, if you have attempted your order multiple times, the pre-authorizations have accumulated to the point of disallowing your card. With each successive submission you are telling your card company to capture that amount from your account. This can quickly reduce your potential spending. After a period of time without a successful trancaction (dependent on your issuer), these pre-authorizations will drop off.
- Card limits - Depending on how your card is set up, you may have exceeded your card's spending limit for the day. Please contact your card issuer.
If your information is accurate and you are still being declined, we cannot force acceptance of a card. Please contact your card issuer or attempt another form of payment.
