FIND AN ITEM:
1 HOW DO I FIND A BOOK?
You can search our inventory of books using our search bar, located at the right-top of every page of our website. Just choose your search category (Title, Author or Keyword), then enter your search term. We’ll quickly sift through our inventory and tell you what we have available.
You can also use the Catalog Lists, located at the left-top of every page of our website. Select a section and you will be taken to a landing page for that subject. Use the “Sort by” bar on every page to view alphabetically, by price, or date, to search through only the books in your selected category.
If you cannot find out the specific item you are wanting, you may please contact Customer Support.
2. HOW IS SALES TAX CALCULATED?
UnitedTextbooks is required to collect sales tax on any order in the US. We charge the local tax rate for each state, and follow all tax collection guidelines on a state-by-state basis. So taxes on each order are automatically calculated based on where our buyer is located.
3 Can I send you a check or money order instead of submitting my credit card information?
Our website accepts Credit Cards and PayPal. Your personal information are safe. All of the information submitted is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security.
4. CAN I ADD MORE BOOKS TO AN ORDER I ALREADY SUBMITTED?
Unfortunately, there is no way to add more books to an order that has been submitted and paid for.
However, you can always start a new order. We offer FREE SHIPPING on every order, and we have no limit to the number of orders you may place.
5 WHAT ARE YOUR SHIPPING RATES/DELIVERY TIMES?
We understand the eagerness as you are waiting for the item. Currently only one normal shipping is available, and the normal transit time is 2-14 business days.
6 WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG TO RECEIVE MY ITEM?

Here are the standard delivery times:
Normal Transit time: 2-14 business days
7 CAN I GET A DISCOUNT ON A LARGE ORDER?
