No minimum order size
Minimum shipment charge of $31.95 USD on all Canadian orders. Canadian and other international orders will be charged actual costs as designated by the carrier.
Our standard shipping method to Canada is via UPS Expedited, with expected delivery in 2 – 3 business days. Other shipping methods may be available upon checkout. The shipment methods include customs-cleared delivery - saving our customers significant time and expense.
Note: Goods you import may be subject to GST, VAT or other similar taxes (especially on large orders). GST and VAT are typically calculated on the local currency dollar value of the goods, including duty and excise tax, and is collected at the border at the same time as these duties. The customer is solely responsible for paying the tax on imported goods. Please note that any applicable duties and taxes are the responsibility of the consignee and are not included in the shipping charges. The Actuarial Bookstore reserves the right to adjust shipping charges at the time of order processing to reflect actual shipping cost. Customers will be contacted if changes to shipping charges are anticipated.
UPS cannot deliver to a Post Office Box, Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) address.

The Actuarial Bookstore does not offer alternative shipping methods from those described above. We are very experienced with international shipping. Over the years, the Actuarial Bookstore has found that UPS Worldwide Express Saver offers our customers the best overall value, balancing cost with the need to assure delivery in a timely fashion. Alternative shipping methods frequently present significant difficulties with proper tracking and delivery. Unfortunately, for those customers willing to endure longer delivery times and the customs-clearing process, we do not offer an alternative shipping option.

Nearly all customers who provide the Actuarial Bookstore with a valid email address will receive email confirmations for both of the following:


Completed order processing
Shipment confirmation (including tracking number)*
*Orders including BPP products will ship from separate locations. These locations do not provide tracking details. Please allow adequate delivery time (3-5 business days for most locations), and contact the bookstore if you need additional information.

Please note: Email addresses are not resold, rented or used for any purpose other than Actuarial Bookstore’s sales and customer service needs. Please see our privacy policy for details.
For orders shipped via UPS, we provide a shipment tracking number in our email shipment confirmation (see above). This provides you with easy tracking of your order. With one simple click, you will be able to track your order’s shipment to its destination. This feature is not available for BPP items. Please visit www.ups.com
Most U.S. and international orders are shipped, partially or completely, within 1 business day of receiving your order. Delivery to most US, Canadian and worldwide locations takes between 2 – 5 business days (not including the day the order is shipped). Delays in shipping and delivery of your order will occur if items are backordered. For US orders with backordered items, we frequently partial-ship your order and send additional shipments as soon as the backordered materials become available. Most international orders are held until all backorders items are in stock so orders ship complete. The decision to partial-ship an order is at the complete discretion of the Actuarial Bookstore. Please see our shipping information section (listed in the top navigational bar) for additional details.
The Actuarial Bookstore tries our very best to keep all materials in-stock at all times. There are times, however, when products become temporarily unavailable. Most often these delays are less than 1 week. If delays are expected to be greater than 1 week, we are likely to partial-ship US orders. The remaining backordered itemsare shipped the same day we receive the inventory at our warehouse. Backordered items are sent via UPS Ground to U.S. customers and via UPS Worldwide Express to international customers regardless of whether expedited shipping is selected at the time of your order.
Depending upon the publisher and the number of revisions required, most pre-ordered manuals are available for shipment by June 1 st to 15 th for the Fall Exams and December 1 st to 15 th for the Spring exams. The Actuarial Bookstore attempts to let all customers know the expected availability date prior to purchase. We cannot control whether or not these dates will be met however, we do try to contact our customers if significant delays are expected. Most pre-orders are filled the very same day we receive the inventory at our warehouse. For this reason, we strongly urge customers to pre-order because shipments are made on a first-to-order, first-to-ship basis. If you do not pre-order, further delays are possible. Pre-ordered items are sent via UPS Ground to U.S. customers and via UPS Worldwide Express to international customers.
The Actuarial Bookstore ships to nearly every country in the world. Notable exceptions are Afghanistan, Iran, Libya, North Korea, and select African countries. Most international shipments are sent via UPS Worldwide Express. If your country does not appear in our SHIP TO section of our checkout process, please contact the bookstore for shipping quotes as additional charges will apply.
Nearly all orders are shipped by a trackable delivery method and the Actuarial Bookstore includes this tracking number in our shipment confirmation emails. Orders of BPP or "Print on Demand" items are sent from separate locations and shipment confirmation emails are not available for these items. If you haven’t received a 2nd email confirming the shipment of your order for items shipping from our warehouse, you order has not yet shipped. Tracking numbers are not assigned until the day the order is shipped.

Please note:  There is a delay between when the delivery company assigns the number (at the warehouse pick-up) and when this number is posted on its website. Orders placed earlier in the day are typically posted on the UPS or USPS websites that same evening. If your tracking number does not appear by the next business day, please contact us.
A signature is required for all shipments sent to commercial addresses. A signature is not typically required if your order is delivered to a residential address. However, if the UPS delivery person believes that the location presents the risk of theft/loss, a signature may be required and a note will be placed on your door. If you are concerned about the security of the delivery location, please have your order shipped to a commercial address. The Actuarial Bookstore is not responsible for the contents of the package once it delivered (with or without signature).
The Actuarial Bookstore does not offer alternative international shipping methods. We are very experienced in international shipping. Over the years, the Actuarial Bookstore has found that UPS Worldwide Express offers our international customers the best overall value, balancing cost with the need to assure customs-cleared delivery in a timely fashion.
It may be possible to have orders shipping on a personal or corporate shipping account so please contact us to make arrangements.
Customers must notify the Actuarial Bookstore within 5 business days of the receipt of their order regarding any damage, defective products or shipment discrepancies to be eligible for a damage refund or a replacement order. Returns of these items often require special procedures. Please contact us promptly.
