How soon will you ship my order?

How and when do I receive my download items?

An invoice screen will appear detailing your order at the completion of checkout with a listing of your downloads near the bottom — click each link listed to download your items. Alternatively, you may download your files from the “View Download History” page (click the Account button, then click the “View Download History” link). Please download your files as soon as possible. Links expire after 30 days.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to create a customer account BEFORE placing your order! Otherwise, your download links will only appear on the invoice screen. With an account you'll be able to access your files from the “View Download History” page and re-download them if needed.

Do download items need to be ordered separately?

No, you may add download items to any order since these formats have no effect on shipping calculations. FOR EXAMPLE: If your order contains books, DVDs, and download items (epub, mobi, pdf, mp3) — shipping is only calculated on the books and DVDs (which will ship by whatever method you select) and your download items will available immediately to freely download (see answer to above question). If your order contains only download items, then the only shipping option shown during checkout will be 'Free Shipping ($0.00).'
