Ordering / Shipping

Acceptance of Orders

The receipt of an e-mail order confirmation does not constitute the acceptance of an order or a confirmation of an offer to sell. Monkeying Around reserves the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any item and/or refuse service to any customer. Verification of information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order. By placing a credit card order, the customer grants Monkeying Around permission to contact their bank to verify name, and address.

Shipping & Handling Fees

Shipping and handling charges are based on total books in your order. Oversized or heavy items may have an additional shipping cost. This charge may not be calculated until the order is being prepared.

Back Orders

If an item is back ordered, we will notify you via e-mail. We will notify you via email and give you a cancellation option on shipments scheduled more than 30 days after the order date. Back orders will be filled before new orders when the back ordered items become available. Many manufacturers will put an item on back order and then discontinue it. We will notify you via email if this happens.
