Shipping and Handling Charges

  • Handling charge: There is a US$5.00 handling charge on every order. This charge will be included with your shipping cost on your invoice.
  • Shipping charge: The total shipping charge will be based on the weight of the entire order.
  • Backorders: The shipping charge for the backordered portion will be charged when the back order ships. No additional handling charge is incurred when the backordered items are shipped.
  • Undeliverable orders:
    Please note: It is the responsibility of the customer  to provide a correct deliverable address for all orders.  
    If any shipping vendor is unable to deliver a package to a Reading Room after multiple attempts (for example, because of limited Reading Room hours), the package will be returned to The Christian Science Publishing Society's (CSPS) warehouse.  Returned packages result in restocking charges to the CSPS as well as additional freight charges from the carrier. To help to cover the costs which CSPS incurs, Reading Rooms will not be reimbursed for the shipping and handling of undeliverable, returned packages.
  • Shipping Methods:
    US orders:The Christian Science Publishing Society's default shipping method within the United States is UPS.  Please be sure you specify a delivery address that can accept packages delivered by UPS.   PO Boxes cannot accept delivery of UPS packages and an alternate address would be necessary. 
    International orders: The Christian Science Publishing Society's default shipping method for international orders weighing less than 3.9lbs is USPS.  International orders weighing more than 3.9lbs will ship DHL.
