All of the domestic US packages are shipped. You probably received an e-mail with the delivery confirmation number. One or two bounced, but the books are on the way. Somewhere.
Foreign shipments are just starting to ship, but will all be in the mail by Thursday AM. In many places, these books are duty free. VAT is, of course, your responsibility. The international harmonization code for these books is 4901.99.0070, or 4901.99.0093. Both refer to hardbound, printed books. You can use the first 6 digits to try to figure out what your customs people will want from you, if anything.
Some people have asked for an invoice. If so, I’ll send one. However, it will have to reflect the true value of the books. I don’t care to read my copy in jail. I suggest that you don’t worry about an invoice unless you know you will need it. If so, drop me a note.
When you receive your books and decide to keep them, please send $600.00 if you have not already done so. Your last payment will be $295, plus shipping and handling. I will bill you, but shipping and handling are very close to this:
US domestic: $25 per box (2 volumes).
Non-US: Varies. Australia seems to be the most, at $55 per box (2 volumes).
One last fee applies, and that is the cost of PayPal (their ordinary fees, and exchange rate stuff) if you paid that way.
If you paid in full, up front, domestic, I’ll pick up the shipping. If you paid in full outside the US, I’ll apply the US shipping as a discount on your international shipping.
I will read my own terms and conditions to make sure that no one is overcharged. All of the shipping fees above will be reduced by something like $10, which I believe I was going to allow on domestic & international shipping. Trust me: I’m not trying to nickel and dime you, but some of these numbers are becoming clear only as I bring boxes to the post office.
Again, these books are USPS Priority Mail. Domestic boxes should all be in your hands this week. International, by end of next week, I think. They claim 6-10 days, so take that with a grain of salt.
Any questions, drop a note.
