  •  What are your shipping rates / delivery times?
This depends on your location and the shipping method that you selected while placing your order.

All of our rates and delivery estimates can be found on the Shipping Rates page.
 
  •  Why is it taking so long to receive my order?
Unfortunately, we have no control over how long it takes the mail carrier to deliver your package once it leaves our warehouse. We process and ship out most of our packages within 1 to 2 business days.

Check below to see the standard delivery times:

United States
Standard: 4 to 14 Business (M-F) days. May take as many as 21 Business (M-F) days.
Expedited: 2 to 6 Business (M-F) days. May take as many as 8 Business (M-F) days.

International
Standard: 3 to 4 weeks. May take as long as 6 weeks depending on any Customs delays.
Expedited: 10 to 15 days. May take as long as 21 days depending on any Customs delays.

*Orders placed on Friday get shipped on Monday.
 
  •  Can I combine more than one item in a single shipment?
Absolutely! As a matter of fact, this website was built specifically for customers interested in purchasing more than one item at a time. This is why we offer a 50 cent per-book discount on additional items shipping from the same location.
 
  •  Where do you ship your orders from?
All of our orders ship from the location and seller listed on the website with the offer.

Please note that if you order multiple items, it is possible to receive separate packages containing all of your order. In most cases, the packages arrive on different days because of the different transit times from each location.
 
  •  Do you ship outside the United States?
Yes, we ship internationally. We are proud to have one of one of the fastest delivery times to customers overseas. See our Delivery Times page.
 
  •  Can you change my shipping address from Domestic to International?
Unfortunately, we cannot change your shipping address from Domestic to International.

If you would like to change your shipping address from Domestic to International you will need to cancel your order and take your item(s) through check-out again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
 
  •  Can I get a discount on a large order?
Thrift Books' idea was to offer the best prices on the Internet regardless of the total number of items purchased. Because our prices are already so low, we do not offer additional discounts on larger orders. However, please note that we offer FREE domestic shipping on all orders, as well as a 50 cent per-book discount on additional items in the same order that ship from the same location.
