Terms and Conditions for Online Ordering

All online transactions at World Trade Press are handled with industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption. When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it gets to us. When your charge appears on your credit card statement, it will appear as a charge from World Trade Press.

Prices for any of our products are subject to change. Prices are effective at the time of posting and supersede the prices of previous postings.

Shipping Charges
We offer shipping through both UPS and USPS. Orders outside the U.S. and/or orders shipping by a method other than ground will vary in price according to weight and location. Learning your shipping fee is not difficult. First, you can select the items you want to purchase by putting them in your cart. Then begin to place your order and enter your ship-to address. The next page will show all available shipping options. As you select each shipping option, the freight charges will instantly appear next to your selection. So you may toggle between different shipping options until you find the service level and price that fits you best. This will all happen before you ever enter any billing information, and you can cancel the order at this point if you are not happy with the shipping fee. Shipping to any foreign countries may include additional duties and/or taxes as required by the import country. If such fees are required by your country, these fees are not included in the freight costs, and all such additional fees are completely the responsibility of the product recipient.

Shipping Methods and Delivery Times
All items are stocked in our warehouse. Product availability is shown when you put the item in your shopping cart. All in-stock orders will be shipped within 24 hours, Monday through Friday. Orders entered over the weekend will ship out on Monday. If you choose, you may place an order for an “out-of-stock” item. Be aware that your credit card will be charged for this purchase. Orders may be shipped by UPS or by USPS. Please note: UPS does not consider Saturday or Sunday as standard shipping days for Ground, 3-Day, 2-Day, or Next-Day Air packages. When using UPS, please note that items entered after 1pm PST will ship the following business day (Monday through Friday).

Sales Tax
Tangible products (i.e., books) are taxable to our customers located in California. Tangible items are not taxed if shipped outside of the state of California. Downloadable products are not taxed, regardless of your location.

Backorders will occur occasionally. If your merchandise is not in stock, we will keep you informed on the status of your backordered item(s). Your credit card will be charged when you place an order. We will gladly refund your money by request.

Returning Merchandise
If you are not completely satisfied with your order, you may return any merchandise in new and unused condition within 30 days of receipt for a full credit, refund, or exchange, but before returning the merchandise, you MUST send an e-mail with your intent. We will then e-mail you back with a Return Authorization Number that you must apply to the outside of the package before you return the shipment. Products not in new and unused condition are not eligible for return. Products returned without prior return authorizations or without noted return authorization numbers are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Original freight charges and any return freight costs are not refundable unless required due to a product manufacturing defect.
