Terms of Agreement

Books can be purchased using all major credit cards. If your company buys at least $500 worth of Apress books annually, you qualify for credit on net 30-day terms. If approved, you must pay within 30 days from the date of invoice. Shipments will be withheld on past due accounts. No credit will be extended on eBook purchases. All eBook orders must be purchased with a credit card.

eBooks are delivered through a link allowing for the agreed number of downloads. eBooks are NOT to be distributed.

Sales tax is applicable in the following states: CA; CO; CT; IN; MA; MI; NJ; NY; TN; and Canada. If your business is tax exempt, you must supply a tax exempt code. There is no sales tax applied to eBooks.

Shipping and handling is charged on all print book orders and is not discounted. We meet deadlines. When ordering, you are asked for a ship-by date. The faster you need your books, the more expensive shipping can be, so please allow appropriate time to minimize this cost.

Returns for account credit are accepted on books that are accompanied with an invoice and are still in saleable condition. The value of credit is determined by the corresponding invoice. Credit is applied on the next order after credit memo is issued. eBooks are non-returnable.

Damaged or mis-shipped books will be returned to the warehouse free of charge. To arrange for a free freight return, call customer service within 30 days of invoicing.
