Payment Options I really like checks (no commissions :), and you can mail a check made out to Horrible Books upon receipt and Horrible Satisfaction to : Horrible Books, 333 N Main Street, # 2464, Cedar City, UT, 84720. For schools, libraries, and organizations that use purchase orders, they're totally fine. Or you can pay with ChasePay/Zelle to email@example.com, or you can PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org if you cover the PayPal Fees by clicking on the Send Money Tab, then the "I'm sending money to family or friends" Button, then the Continue Button, and then make sure the "I will pay the Fee" box is checked. As an FYI, if you pay via your PayPal Balance or your Bank Account, you don't pay a fee either. :) And if there's some other new payment option, propose it to me. I like to try new things. And if credit cards are necessary, yes, they will be fine, too.
Horrible Packing I pack Books far better than anyone I know. Books are my babies and I want you to receive them in new condition, since you're paying for New Books. The key is that I never put Book corners next to the corners of the box. Instead, I wrap Books in a plastic grocery bag to protect them from humidity, rain, and snow, and I make sure there's about an inch of crunched up newspaper protecting all the corners of the box. Not just the corner corners, but the corners all the way from the bottom to the top of the box. Then I put a half inch of crunched up newspaper around all 6 sides. I tape it up well with Scotch Heavy-Duty Tape, and then I shake the box. If I hear shuffling around, I reopen the box, add more newspaper, tape it up, and shake the box again. Once it passes the Shake Test, that box of Books is Officially Certified as "Postal-Drop-Kick Proof", and better packed than 99% of the book publishers I've ever dealt with. It's not rocket surgery! :) And as an FYI, any Ding'd Books are offered at 20%-Off to anyone who asks, or are sold at a conference at 20%-Off. So, you can be confident that all books sold here are new edition new books in new condition.
Horrible Recycling I use used boxes and used newspaper 100% of the time. Feel free to use them again. Reduce (Minimalist), Reuse (Resourceful), Recycle (Last Option Before Trash).

International Shipping International Shipping is right out. It's so expensive that it's not worth the cost or risk. For Desperate International Horrible Fans, I recommend using the US Mailing Address of a Horrible Friend/Relative living/visiting the US, a PO Box or UPS Store in the US, a US Hotel you'll be visiting, or a US Military Mailing Address.
Horrible Advertising Horrible Books relies on Horrible Word-of-Mom advertising. I bow in your general direction!
Horrible Privacy Horrible Books is committed to protecting your privacy. When you order, I only need to know 2 things : 1) your mailing address to mail your Horrible Books to you, and 2) your email address to email your Invoice to you. If you pay via check, I promptly deposit the check and it's never seen again. If you pay via credit card, I need the credit card number, the expiration date, and the 3-digit code on the back (for AMEX, it's the 4-digit number on the front). The credit card information is entered directly into Square.com's secure credit card site and is never seen again. If you reorder with a credit card, I'll need all of the credit card information again, as I don't keep any credit card information anywhere. I have not, do not, and will not sell, trade, or share any of your payment information. That said, I do tell my daughter interesting customer names, streets, or cities.
10%-Off Everything for $1000+ Orders If you can coordinate a $1000+ Order with your friends, you'll receive a 10%-Off Discount off Everything, including the normally not-discounted Life of Fred Math Books and the Art of Problem-Solving Math Books.
