We may fulfill your order at different times from different warehouses, so your order may arrive in different boxes and at different times.
You will receive an email confirmation for each shipment. The email also lists the items that have already shipped and those still to be shipped. We do not charge extra for these split shipments.
What if my shipping address is different from my billing address?
If your order is shipping to an address other than the billing address on your credit card, we may contact you to list the alternate address with your credit card company. This helps prevent fraudulent use of your credit card. To list the alternate address with your credit card company, just call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask the agent to add the address to the notes on your account. Listing the address before you place an order helps us process your order more quickly.
Will I get an email confirmation?
After you place an order with TextbookRush, we email you with pertinent information about your order's status. For instance, soon after you place an order, we send an email confirming we have received it. We send a second confirmation email when your order has shipped. We send more than one shipment confirmation email if we fulfill the order in multiple shipments. We might also send other emails about your order's status, if necessary. Please save these emails for your records. To ensure you get all email communications you should "white list" us in your address book (@TextbookRush.com).
Who can I contact for more information?
Please contact or live chat with our Customer Care Department. Please refer to your order number in all communications.
