How is shipping charged?
Shipping charges are calculated automatically based upon package weight and distance shipped.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BOOKSTORE CANNOT SHIP TO PO BOXES. PLEASE ENTER A VALID STREET ADDRESS TO ENSURE PROPER DELIVERY OF YOUR ORDER.
What if I want my order faster?
We can ship your order 2nd Day Air and 3 Day Select after processing time, which can be anywhere from 1 to 3 days after you have submitted your order. You need to select this option upon checking out of the bookstore, for an additional cost. This calculation will be shown on the “select shipping method” page of the order process.
If you would like to calculate the SHIPPING TIME from our location to yours, visit UPS.com and enter the bookstore location Town, Orchard Park, State, NY and Zip Code 14127 then enter your location. Please note that UPS does not deliver on weekends so, for example, if you choose second day air and your package is shipped on Friday, you won't get it until Tuesday (2 business days). There is also a transit time map in our FAQ section for your convenience.
Keep in mind that you need to consider the PROCESSING TIME that it takes for the bookstore to complete your order prior to shipping it out. This processing time can be anywhere from 1 to 3 business days. Processing time excludes weekends and holidays. Please also keep in mind that the last pick up of orders occurs at 3:45 p.m. EST Monday-Friday so any orders placed after this time won't be shipped until at least the following business day.
Once the processing time has been completed and your order is ready to ship, the SHIPPING TIME is calculated based on the time it takes from our location to yours. If you live near one of our campuses in the state of New York or Ohio, you should select GROUND service since it is only one day shipping time from our location to yours after processing time. If you live near one of our campuses in the state of Virginia or Wisconsin, the standard GROUND service takes 2 days from our location to yours after processing time.
Orders are processed and shipped in the order they are received. The bookstore will not refund shipping cost once you make your selection so make your selection wisely.
We suggest ordering your books, at least 1 week prior to the first day of classes, to take advantage of the basic shipping prices.
