CDS sends domestic orders by UPS or the United States Postal Service, depending on product weight and destination. International customers receive most products via surface mail. CD-ROM products and some new products are shipped via air mail. There is no charge for shipping or handling for these services.
For expedited service, ask about special handling (air mail, courier, overnight delivery, etc.). These fees are paid for by the customer when the order is placed.
Tips for Optimum Service
For best service ... use your account number. When you order the first time, you will receive a customer account number. Use this number every time you order or correspond with us.
Also, ... make sure the cost of your purchase is covered. CDS must receive payment before shipping. You can pay by check drawn on a U.S. bank, Visa, Mastercard, International money order, UNESCO coupons, or draw on a CDS deposit account, but payment must arrive before the product goes out. You may wish to place a deposit in your account and set up a standing order for some products to have future issues and updates sent to you automatically.
Finally, check to see that your payment has been
sent to the correct address. Direct all

such as FedEx or UPS. See note on mail delivery
