Shipping Policy

Thank you for visiting Righton Books. Following are the details of our shipping policy

Store Pickup

You can save on shipping by choosing store pickup during checkout. After placing an order for store pickup, your order will be ready for pick up within a day, and in many cases, within a few hours. We will notify you when the order is ready. In rare situations it is possible that we don't have a book in the store that our systems indicate we do. In this case, we will notify you and work on a solution. 

Domestic Shipping

All orders are processed within 2-3 business days. Orders are not processed or shipped on weekends and holidays.

Some orders will ship directly from the store while others will ship from our warehouse, at our discretion. This is primarily driven by stock levels. There should not be a difference in the time to get orders on the way to you. 

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Delivery delays can also occasionally occur. Please note that we re-use shipping materials as often as possible so the box you receive may be a box we received from our publishers. 

Media Mail has longer delivery times than Priority Mail or UPS, but it is considerably less expensive. Media Mail is only available for books. Any order containing non-book items will have to ship Priority Mail or UPS. 

It is our company policy that shipping is not a profit center. In other words, we do not mark up our shipping costs. However, shipping is complicated stuff and we do have to estimate costs on this site. Some of our estimates might be slightly above our cost, while others may be slightly below our cost. We may charge a premium to ship certain particularly heavy books. 

If your order contains a preorder and other items, the available items will ship and the preorder will ship when the book is published, thus incurring additional shipping costs. Preorders will generally ship so that you receive it on, or close to, the publication date. 

Note that UPS cannot deliver to PO Boxes. 

Shipping rates & delivery estimates

We offer free shipping on any book order over $50.

Since we use USPS Media Mail for shipping these orders, only books can be included on a free shipping order. No gift items, puzzles, etc. 

You must select Free Shipping via USPS Media Mail as your shipping method when checking out to receive free shipping. 

Shipping charges for your order will be calculated and displayed during checkout. If you choose to have the books shipped as they become available, for instance when an order contains a preorder, the total shipping charge is likely to be higher than what is calculated during checkout.

Shipping Method Base Fee + Each Item Delivery Time Notes
Media Mail $3.95 $.75 2-8 business days free for orders over $50-books only
Priority Mail $8.95 $.95 2-5 business days  
UPS Ground $8.95 $.95 2-5 business days
