Here at Arcadia, we're dedicated to providing the best customer service possible. We've listed some of the most common questions about our shipping process below. If you have any specific questions for us, please contact our customer service department at Monday through Friday, 8:30AM to 5:30PM EST.


How much will it cost to ship my order?

We ship our orders using USPS for Economy shipping, and UPS for Ground and Second Day Air shipping. The base pricing for our different levels of shipping are: Economy (7-14 days): $3.99 Ground (3-7 days): $7.99 Second Day Air (2-4 days): $13.00 All Ground and Second Day Air orders are transported and delivered by UPS. The price of shipping increases as the number of items ordered is increased.

When will my order ship?

Due to COVID safety and health precautions, we are experiencing a slight fulfillment delay. We appreciate your patience as we work to keep our warehouse workers safe and healthy.Our warehouse will do their best to ship all orders within 48 hours of being placed. However, orders may be delayed by major promotions, the holidays, or if they are marked as backordered. Backordered books are printed on-demand, and may take up to one week or more to ship.


When will my order be delivered?

Once processed and shipped, orders will take anywhere from 2-14 business days to be delivered, depending on which shipping method you choose with your order. Our delivery windows are:


Economy: 7-14 business days Ground: 3-5 business days Second Day Air: 2 business days


Important: We strongly recommend opting for UPS Ground shipping to get your books in time, as the delivery of orders using Economy shipping has been delayed recently due to labor shortages.


Thanksgiving Shipping Delay: Due to the holiday closure at our South Carolina warehouse, orders placed between November 24 and November 27 will not leave our warehouse until November 29. Your expected delivery date will be +3 days from the estimated delivery time of your chosen fulfillment method.


Need it in time for Christmas? Order by November 23 for Economy; Order by December 11 for UPS Ground; Order by December 18 for UPS Second Day Air. Since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, we recommend placing orders to arrive no later than December 23. These recommendations are based on the shipping delays experienced during the holiday season in 2020 and 2021.


We try our very best to ensure all orders are delivered on time. In the event that a package we ship is not delivered on time, we have several options that can assist you:

At this point, we can offer you a full refund for your order. If you would prefer that we reship your order instead, we ask that you wait thirty days after your package's last scan before contacting us about your lost package.


If we shipped your package via Ground 3-7 days and it is not delivered on time, please contact us two days after the package missed its expected delivery date listed on If we shipped your package via Ground 3-7 days and it is not delivered on time, please contact us one day after the package missed its expected delivery date listed on

Can you ship to PO Boxes or Military APO/FPO Box?

Yes, we can ship to PO Boxes using USPS Economy shipping. However, Ground and Second Day Air orders cannot be be shipped to PO Boxes.

Unfortunately, at this time, we are only able to ship to the contiguous U.S., meaning we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawai'i, or internationally. However, our books are also available for purchase and international delivery on Amazon.
