Web Orders

Placing an order on our website:

  • If necessary, choose an option for the format of the item you want to order, then select a quantity, and click “Add to Cart.”
  • Continue shopping for other items, or if you are finished, click “View Cart.”
    • To remove an item from the cart, click the “X” to the left of the product picture.
    • To change the quantity for an item, type the new quantity in the box in the “Quantity” column, then click “Update Cart.”
    • Your order summary including sales tax (to California addresses) and shipping will show at  the bottom  of the page.
    • The shipping method will default to “U.S. Delivery.” If you want to ship to an address outside the U.S., the actual shipping charge may be significantly more than the amount calculated on your web order. If so, we will contact you to pay the additional amount, or you may cancel the order for a refund.
  • From the Cart page, click “Proceed to Checkout.”
    • On the Checkout page, enter your billing address (where your credit card or PayPal account is billed to), email address, and phone number.
    • Web orders may not be shipped to an address different than your billing address. If you need to ship to an address other than your billing address, please order by phone, fax, or email.
  • Click “Proceed to PayPal.”
    • Orders placed through our website are processed by  PayPal. However, you DO NOT  need a PayPal account to order from our website.
    • On the “Choose a way to pay” page, select “Pay with a debit or credit card” if you do not wish to pay with a PayPal account.
    • If you prefer to be invoiced for your order, please order by phone, fax, or email.

Shipping information:

Website orders are normally shipped within one business day after we receive them. They will be shipped by UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail, whichever is less expensive.

  • If you need your order to arrive by a particular date and think it may require rush shipping, please call us to place the order.

Shipping charges for website orders

Because these orders are prepaid at the time you place the order—before we package and weigh them—shipping is charged as a percentage of the total order amount (no freight is charged on downloadable  items):

U.S. Delivery:

  • From $.01 to $9.99 = 51%
  • From $10.00 to $19.99 = 41%
  • From $20.00 to $29.99 = 26%
  • From $30.00 to $89.99 = 18%
  • From $90.00 and up = $11%

International Delivery

  • The shipping method will default to “U.S. Delivery.” If you want to ship to an address outside the U.S., the actual shipping charge may be significantly more than the amount calculated on your web order. If so, we will contact you to pay the additional amount, or you may cancel the order for a refund.

If you prefer to pay the actual shipping charge, rather than a charge based on a percentage of your order amount, please place your order by telephone, email or postal mail.

Order confirmation

When you complete your website order, you will receive two  confirmation emails:

  • From “service @paypal.com” with the subject, “Your payment to Joy of Living Bible Studies”
  • From “info@joyofliving.org” with the subject “Your Joy of Living Bible Studies order…”
    • If you placed an order for  items  to be downloaded, the download links will be in this email.
