Shipping Terms:

Domestic shipping via Priority Mail costs $5.75 for the first book, and $5.75 for each additional book. For Media Mail shipments, the costs are $3.95 and $3.50 respectively. We routinely use Delivery Confirmation on our domestic shipments for items valued over $75.00, at no cost to our customers.

International "priority" shipping costs displayed on our Shipping matrix are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG, and fitting in an economy International Priority Mail envelope. Such will be shipped at a net "standard" cost of $24.95. If International First Class Mail offers a savings of $5.00 or more vs. Priority Mail, we will advise you before shipping and reduce your shipping charges accordingly. If your book(s) are unusually heavy, oversized, or valued over $400, we may contact you to let you know that extra shipping costs apply. WE WILL ALWAYS SEEK TO FIND THE LEAST EXPENSIVE SHIPPING METHOD AND TO PASS ANY SAVINGS ON TO YOU. Insurance is "your care". We strongly encourage international customers to purchase at least minimal insurance to allow tracking of books valued at more than $200. Generally that costs about $3.00. International orders paid for with a credit card will be shipped only to the card's billing address, unless prior arrangements are made. We strive to ship within two business days after receipt of a firm order placed on and accepted by ABEbooks.
