    Can I cancel my order for a refund?

    Because we work hard to get your order out quickly, we unfortunately can't change or cancel the order once it's been placed. We do make the return process easy and you can find directions on how to return eligible orders in returns above.

    What if I'm past the return period?

    The best thing to do is see if your books have buyback value. Go to the main menu and click "Sell Your Textbooks" to find out the current buyback value of your materials.
