    Please do not force us to use PayPal. Many of us have had bad experiences with them. Please take American Express cards. The new ones charge the vendor less. That is the eason I cannot order Joyofliving anymore. I used to order them all the time. I had to talk to Kathy Rowland to pay by check because I would not use PayPal. I will never use them again.

      Hi Karen! PayPal is the service that we use to process our credit card payments on our website, but you do not need to have or use a PayPal account to use it. Also, we do accept American Express cards! However, if you would rather not order online at all, you can email your orders to us at info@joyofliving.org or call our office at (800) 999-2703. We can take credit card payments over the phone or send you an unpaid invoice that can be paid with a check (or credit card at a later date).

      (In addition, ordering this way (email or phone) often gets you the best rate on shipping, as we charge exactly what we are charged by USPS or UPS, plus a $1 handling charge. Orders that come through our website are charged a standard shipping rate based on order value, rather than on exact weight.)

      I hope this information helps!
