WHEN YOU ORDER A BOOK FROM US, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY THAT YOU'RE PLAYING A SHELL GAME. (C. M. Russell, The Shell Game)
ORDERING: To purchase individual books or groups of books directly from Gene W. Baade Books on the West, please contact us at (email) firstname.lastname@example.org, (telephone) 425-271-6481, or (USPS mail) 824 Lynnwood Ave NE, Renton WA, 98056
PAYMENT: For direct purchases we accept personal checks, money orders, and credit card payment via the internet service, Paypal. Institutions may submit purchase orders. We do not process credit cards directly. PLEASE ALWAYS contact us to find out if a certain book that you are interested in is still available. We usually have only one copy of a particular book. Payment is ordinarily to be made before we ship the book. Extraordinary circumstances may be negotiated. We update our complete inventory list frequently, but not daily, so in some cases a given title listed may have already been sold.
SHIPPING: We ship via USPS media mail: $4.99 for the first book, $2.00 for each additional book with the same order. Over-sized books will be more, the amount depending on the book. For priority mail: Regular octavo size book $13.50 first book, $8.50 each additional. UPS shipping is available & charges will vary because it is more expensive. In isolated cases, we may request additional shipping remuneration from the buyer to cover insurance for loss or damage on expensive items. That said, we package very carefully to protect the book or product.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS SHIPPING CHARGES will be determined by the USPS rate for destination, weight, and size of package.
SALES TAX: All books ordered from Washington State buyers will have an added point of destination sales tax on the combined book & shipping cost.
HOLDS: We are always willing to hold a book while you arrange to send payment. In unusual circumstances involving a length of time, we will work with you as best we can.
RETURNS: Books ordered directly from us may be returned for reimbursement of the book only for any reason if we are notified by telephone or email within five (5) business days after delivery to your shipping address. Books must be returned in the same condition they were shipped to you from us. We will reimburse both the original shipping you paid and your return shipping only if we have made a significant error in our description of the book, otherwise return shipping costs will be absorbed by the buyer as well as our original shipping charge to the buyer.
