Will I have to pay customs charges?
International clients are responsible for any import duties and taxes that some governments charge when a package reaches their country, as well as any surcharges by the shipping companies to collect monies for customs. The value stated for customs will be the product total from the invoice. No exceptions will be made.
How to order by mail
Place the order as if you are ordering online. Select the option to pay by check. Then print out the order and send it to us with a check (or credit card number). If you do not have a printer, you can mail us a note stating what you want and where we should send it. Be sure to include shipping charges and also sales tax when the order is shipped to Minnesota or Wisconsin. All checks, bank drafts, and money orders must be in US funds. Check payments are an option for pay-in-full orders only.
Tracking is available for all shipping methods except International Standard. Emails with tracking numbers are sent within 24 hours of shipment. Emails for United States Post Office shipments are sent from stamps.com.
Will you match someone else’s sale price?
Yes we will. If you find an authorized reseller selling a brand new program at a lower price, we will match their price if you prefer to purchase from us.
Place your order on our website at the price listed. When you check out you will be able to write us a message. Tell us what you would like. Be sure to tell us where you saw or heard the special price so we may verify it.
How to order on a payment plan
You may elect to pay for product orders over $99 on a three-month payment plan by checking the box above your shopping cart. We will add a $9 administration fee for three-month plans. (NOTE: This option does not apply to seminar/event tuition or to special customer codes that already include payment plans.)
Follow this procedure:
- Make your order online. Check the box for three payment plan; or
- When you check out, write a message to us in the space provided. Say: "Please put this order on a three-month payment plan. I understand there is a $9 administration fee."
- We will add the shipping and handling charges to your first payment, and charge your credit card in three equal payments at the same time each month. If you received an offer in the mail or through an email that offers a payment plan, enter the Customer Code for that offer before you check out. You will then be given the payment plan at no additional charge.

What is a "Customer Code"?
A "Customer Code" identifies a special promotional offer customers may receive in the mail or through email.
The Customer Code does not identify who you are.
There is a place to enter your Customer Code in the shopping basket. When you do, a notice will appear explaining the special offer in that code. If the offer entitles you to a free payment plan, or discount, or bonus(es), those automatically appear in your shopping basket.
Customer Codes are not required to place an order; they are only required to receive special promotionals that are offered from time to time.
How do I get my shopping cart to reflect the special offer I received?
When an offer includes a bonus, discount, or payment plan, put the main item in the shopping cart. Then enter the Customer Code for the offer and click Update Shopping Cart. At that point your special offer should appear in your shopping cart.
If something goes wrong and you do not receive the special that you expect, go ahead and place the order with the prices given. When checking out type us a note in the "comments" area. We will contact you if we cannot accommodate your request.
