Most orders are shipped in three business days via standard mail (printed matter) or UPS, depending on the size of the order. Orders to Alaska and Hawaii and other US locations outside the continental US are sent USPS Priority Mail. Canadian and Mexican orders will be sent USPS First Class or Priority, larger shipments may be sent by UPS Standard (we will contact you in advance in such cases). Please allow at least two weeks for your order to arrive. Faster shipping is available at additional cost; call for details.


Sales Tax Information -- New York State Residents Only

New York residents only must add sales tax. By New York state law, sales tax is calculated on both the cost of the books and on shipping and handling charges. For example, if you are purchasing a book for $25.00, your shipping and handling charge would be an additional $6.00, and sales tax is charged on the subtotal of $31.00. For example, in Tompkins County, New York (where PALS Publishing is located), sales tax would be an additional $2.48 ($31.00 times 8%), and your order total would be $33.48.

Tax-exempt customers will be provided a coupon code that must be entered before the tax-exemption can apply. Please contact us at 607-255-7654, or by e-mail to PALSPublishing@cornell.edu for assistance.

Individuals and organizations from outside New York state are not charged sales tax.

Return Policy

PALS Publishing does not accept returns or exchanges. If you have any questions, contact PALS.

Damaged Books, Other Problems

If books are damaged in transit, or if there are other problems with an order, the customer must notify PALS within 10 days after the order is received to arrange for a replacement shipment. PALS will provide further instructions.
