Tracking Numbers
Orders placed using Media Mail or Priority Mail are issued a tracking number by the United States Postal Service. You’ll recieve that number in your order confirmation email – and can track your order anytime at the USPS tracking page.


Order not received?
If you are concerned that your order is taking too long to be delivered, please feel free toemail or call us (email is best). If you still have it, please provide us with the USPS tracking number from the confirmation email you received when you placed your order online. Using this, we will be able to determine when your order was shipped and/or whether it has been delivered to your local post office.

If you chose to have your order shipped by Media Mail (a special, low rate for books, videos and DVDs) it may take as long as two to three weeks for your order to arrive. Some books do not qualify for Media Mail, but can be shipped as low-cost Bound Printed Matter, which can take up to four days longer than Media Mail. Generally, orders to the West coast arrive faster, those to the East coast a bit longer (we ship from Seattle). Most Media Mail and Bound Printed Matter orders, however, will arrive within 5-14 days. Orders shipped by First Class Mail and Priority Mail will usually arrive in 2-5 days, and perhaps a bit longer during the holiday season.

Our shipping goal, which we achieve more than 95% of all Monday through Saturday orders, is to ship the order within 4-24 hours of when a customer places it. Orders received Monday through Friday by 3 p.m. almost always ship same day.
