Consolidating and Separating Orders
Sometimes the books that make up your order come from different warehouses, far apart from one another. In those instances you can choose to have the books that make up that order shipped separately directly from their locations.

Shipping separately is the quickest way to receive all of your books, but you may pay more shipping as your order will be shipped in separate packages from separate locations.

If you choose to consolidate your shipment then your books will be shipped from a single location. This may be cheaper, since you'll just be getting one package, but can take longer for us to send out since we'll need to wait for all of your books to arrive from their various warehouses.

You'll see the option to separate or consolidate your order on the final checkout page, like this:

consolidate or not

By default, the option is set to have your items shipped separately. If you'd like to see how much cheaper (but slower!) it would be to consolidate your order, just select 'Consolidate' and you'll see. spacer
