Thank you.


Due to the high volume of orders during the first few weeks of the semester, it may take up to 5 business days to process your order.(if the items are available for sale) Please keep in mind, this time frame is an estimate, not a guarantee.

The online bookstore inventory comes from the campus bookstore. If the campus bookstore does not have an item in stock, the online bookstore will not have that item in stock either.
o Please make sure the email address that you signed on with is a legitimate, deliverable email address. PCC Bookstore is not responsible for any "undeliverable" mail (ie: MAILER DAEMON responses).
o The email address you use is the email address we will access to communicate with you for questions or inquiries about your order. If you do not receive your email, check your spam (junk) folder or check the spelling on your email address. The way you typed it is the way it is stored into our memory. PCC Online Service relies heavily on email communication.

Codes, eBooks, "looseleaf" textbooks & syllabi are NOT available as used. If you ask us for "used only" and we do not carry that item in used condition, it will be cancelled from your order.
o If your order was cancelled and you still want to order those textbooks, then you will need to re-submit a new order. Remember that your credit card is not charged until your books are available.
o If your item is on backorder, this means that we have not yet received the item and are waiting for the item to arrive in order to complete your order. This does not mean that the item is cancelled from your order. We will fulfill your order once we receive the backordered item. If you no longer want the backordered item, you MUST contact us to cancel the item.
o If your credit card was DECLINED, then your order will be automatically cancelled. We cannot change out credit card information as we do not have access to such private materials. If you are certain that you have money on the card and it was declined, go back and double check the credit card info that was inputted (ie: account # or expiration date).
o The website gives information on both new and used book prices. This does not mean that we have those items in stock. We provide both prices to students strictly for informational purposes and because it is required by law. Just because the price is posted, does not mean we have that item available. We do not have a "real-time" count on our inventory. We are not like
o The substitution option is as follows: "New Books Only", "Used Books Only", "New Books (will accept used)", or "Used Books (will accept new)". You will be expected to choose one of the options before you can complete your order. "New (will accept used)" means that you prefer new books but will accept used books if new books are unavailable. "Used (will accept new)" means that you prefer to buy used books but will accept new books if used books are unavailable. We have these options listed as such in order to be as thorough as possible with your order. Please keep in mind that when you submit an order and are given a monetary total on your print out, this is only a SUBTOTAL. The totals will change depending on the option you choose. Even if you choose New or Used Only options, you are still given a subtotal as taxes or shipping costs have not yet been factored into the final cost. Final costs are emailed to you once the items have been processed.
