“OLD BOOK SURFER” ORDERS  ON THE ADVANCED BOOK EXCHANGE (ABE)

OUR SHIPPING RATES  FOR BOOK ORDERS 

ABE’s independent booksellers offer a variety of shipping services to meet your needs, be they economy, speed, or package safety and security.  We generally use the U.S. Postal Service, but on request (consider for heavier orders) we can ship to you by UPS (Up to 5 lbs. = $9.50, plus $1 per every 2lbs. over), or use other carriers. Media Mail (formerly “Book Rate”) is the cheapest postal mail service for books and sound recordings. The postage quoted on your order will be based on USPS Media Mail rates for one book of 2-3 lb. average packed weight. We may contact you if your order is extra large / heavy, and will cost more. 

We add $1 extra per extra book to our $4 basic Media Rate mailing charge. We do not charge more than $5 above the postage shown on your package – that $5, or less, about covers the cost of boxes, packing, tape, labels, labor, and standing on line at the Post Office ! 

Below are some other shipping services and our current price scale for each. Please request any such extras that you are willing to pay for when you place your order: 

PRIORITY MAIL,  Domestic  $6.50
(Small Flat Rate, up to a 1 lb. Box) 

PRIORITY MAIL, 1+ lbs. ($7-up)
Zone Based

FIRST CLASS MAIL (13 oz. max.) $6.50 
DELIVERY CONFIRMATION  $1.00 
INSURANCE (to $100. value)  $1.75
                         (to $300. value)  $5.70

PARCEL POST (heavier orders) -  Zone Based 

OVERSEAS (We can ship by flat rate envelope uninsured, ($12.), or priority (airmail) insured – due to costs, we’ll quote upon receiving firm orders, your shipping instructions, and after packing and weighing the goods. )


“REVIVAL RECORDS” MUSIC MATERIALS ORDERED ON “GEMM” --  THE GLOBAL ELECTRONIC MUSIC MARKETPLACE

OUR SHIPPING RATES  FOR MUSIC ORDERS 

On GEMM you may want to order our music books, record albums, CDs, 45 RPM singles, or one of our other related products shown in the GEMM listings and on this web-site, such as record sleeves and album picture frames. 

With this variety of goods we’ve set up a basic shipping scale for the materials that qualify for Media mail – books, bound music, records, and CDs – and then developed shipping costs for the other items based on the type of mail service that we feel is the “best way” for you the customer. We decided that on “mixed” orders we should just charge by the shipping weight; that we could send 45s and CDs for roughly the same Media Rate costs; & LPs could ship at their own Media Mail rate scale. 

So, below, this has become our GEMM–goods shipping  price system. It is also used on any store mail-in  orders we receive.  

(Regrettably, we can now only ship overseas by air, making albums pretty costly for foreign customers, & thus hurting our business.  Our advice is to group your orders up, find a U.S. friend to hold them to take over on holiday, or buy in-person at a record fair or store here !  Hopefully some surface mail system will return & bring sanity back to our shipping. )
