Shipping Policy

Most orders are shipped the same business day or the business day after the order is received. On rare occasions, a shipment may be delayed due to stock availability. In this case, we’ll send you an email and give you an opportunity to cancel the order if you need the item sooner than we can provide it.

To get your books to you as quickly as possible, we sometimes ship directly from a publisher’s warehouse. As a result, the shipping cost in your shopping cart may vary depending on which items you are purchasing.

At present, we are only able to provide shipping within the United States and Canada. While we plan to offer shipping options to a broader range of countries in the future, currently the high cost of international shipping prevents this.

If you are shipping to a correctional facility, please understand that we cannot guarantee timely delivery. While shipments to correctional facilities normally arrive without a problem, in some cases shipments may be returned to us due to policies of the facility in question. (For instance, some facilities disallow hardcover books, or require that all books be shipped directly from the publisher.) If a book is returned to us from a correctional facility, we will refund you for the order, less what you were charged for shipping.

Payment Policy

All orders must be prepaid using a MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express credit or debit card using our secure payment processing option. We do not accept mail orders or telephone orders.

Security Policy

We take online security very seriously. We employ IT experts with experience in high-security software implementation – not only in the retail industry, but also in sensitive industries like government and banking. We conform to or exceed security standards for online purchases.

When you make a credit card purchase from Catholic Books Direct, your card information is transmitted immediately to our bank and is not stored on our systems. Our staff do not have access to your private card information at any time.

Return Policy

Items purchased may be returned within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. Contact info@catholicbooksdirect.com to inquire about a refund.
