I have a question about my order.

Where is My Order?

To find your tracking details go to your order history and then view receipt. Please note that tracking details for Economy shipping tend to lag behind actual transit and there is no tracking for International Mail 20-60 days. If you used guest checkout, you will need to activate the account to see your order history.

Who Should I Contact for More Assistance?

First, check your order history on your ivpress.com account. If you still have questions, our customer service department would love to help you. Please call us at (800) 843-9487, option 2, or email us at customerservice@ivpress.com.

Can I Check Out as a Guest?

When you are purchasing print format books, you will see the option to check out as a guest.
