Prices shown on BookPal’s price list or elsewhere are for information only and do not constitute quotations or offers to sell. Additional charges may be applied for product modification and customization. BookPal reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect price due to typographical errors.
BookPal must receive all payments, in cleared U.S funds within 30 days from the date of shipment unless otherwise specified. BookPal reserves the right to place a 1.5% service charge on past due accounts.

BookPal shall have no liability in respect of any oral quotation or under any oral agreement unless BookPal confirms such quotation or agreement in writing within 10 days thereafter.
Estimated delivery depends upon which warehouse the books are shipping from as well as the destination address. Ground shipments cannot be guaranteed to deliver on or before a specific date. Your order may arrive in several different packages on different days, at no additional cost to you. Some warehouses require additional processing time to prepare the order for shipment. Standard processing time is 3-5 business days from the date the order is placed. Some titles require transfer to our East or West coast consolidation facility prior to shipment, which will add an additional 1-4 days of processing time prior to shipment.
Backordered titles will ship with the selected shipping method once the books arrive back in stock at the warehouse. BookPal is not responsible for UPS delays caused by weather related issues or other natural disasters. If the title is scheduled to reprint in more than 90 days of the order date, the order will be canceled. If no reprint date is scheduled by 30 days after the order is placed, the order will be canceled.
Rush shipments cannot be guaranteed to deliver at an exact time of day. Orders with a rush shipping method selected will ship within 1-2 business days from the date the order is placed. Some warehouses require additional processing time to prepare the order for shipment. BookPal is not responsible for UPS delays caused by weather related issues or other natural disasters.
International shipments are subject to worldwide rights and the publishers’ approvals. BookPal will provide freight quotes on appropriate shipping options to the end destination country upon request. Insurance will be an additional fee and BookPal is not responsible for any additional duties, tariffs or taxes. Payment is required up front via ACH or wire transfer. For payments made via PayPal, an additional 4.5% fee will be applied.
Orders placed before a title's street release date will ship on or shortly after the release date, unless other arrangements are made. For information on special requests and early release permissions, please contact Account Management.
BookPal does not accept returns. Exceptions will only be made for misprinted copies, damaged copies or quantity errors. In the event of an exception, BookPal will exchange the affected titles at no cost to the customer. Photographic evidence of the damages may be required.
In order to be eligible for a return, the customer must file a claim with the Customer Service department within 30 days upon receipt of order.
