Frequently Asked Questions

1 Shipping
1.1 What are your shipping options?

We currently ship nationwide and offer two shipping options: expedited shipping for $9.99 and economy shipping for $4.99. We are proud supporters and customers of the United States Postal Service!


We also currently offer free local delivery (Los Altos, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Portola Valley, or Stanford) for all orders that are $50 or more (pretax).


1.2 What are the expected delivery times?

Delivery times vary depending on the shipping method selected (and assume items are in stock):


  • For expedited shipping, we typically use USPS Priority Mail. Once your order is processed and you receive a shipping notification, you should receive it within 3 business days.

  • For economy shipping, we typically use USPS Media Mail, unless your order includes items other than books (which cannot be shipped media mail). Once your order is processed and you receive a shipping notification, you should receive it within 7-10 business days.

  • For delivery, you should receive your order within 2-3 days of placing it.


Please note that we don't process online orders on weekends or holidays. Orders placed on weekends or holidays will be processed on the next business day.
