First you will need to browse or search for the items you would like to order in the store. The Keyword search box located at the top of the page, just under the page banner. You will also find the browse lists on the left hand of the page, these links display items from the categories. At the bottom of the page are links to more pages of items in the same category. When you find an item that interests you, click the title or name of the item to see its product detail page. Here you will find more information about the item, including an availability estimate of how long it will take before the item will be ready to leave the fulfillment center.
The availability estimate on each item's product detail page describes how long it will take that item to reach one of the fulfillment centers once you place your order. Items listed as "In Stock" are, of course, already available in at least one fulfillment center. Once the items you ordered are in stock, they will be packaged and shipped to you. This process can take a few hours (for Guaranteed Express Shipping) to a few days (if you choose FREE Super Saver Shipping). Most orders will ship out within 24-48 hours of the items being in stock. For more information about our availability estimates, please refer to the list below. Ordering multiple copies? Please be aware that the availability estimates are intended for single-copy orders. Orders for many copies of the same item may take longer to assemble.
Amazon will inform you by e-mail if any items in your order prove to be unavailable.
Finally, please note that the above information pertains only to items sold by Amazon.com. Amazon Marketplace sellers agree to ship within 2 business days of your purchase.
Add the Items
to Your Shopping Cart
If you want to order an item, click the "Add to Shopping Cart" button on the item's product detail page. (If you want to buy the product from another seller, click the link in the More Buying Choices box instead and follow the directions.) Once you've added an item to your Shopping Cart, use the cart's "Continue shopping" button to keep searching or browsing until your cart contains all of the items you want to order. You can access the contents of your Shopping Cart at any time by clicking the Shopping Cart icon at the top of every page of our Web site.
Proceed to Checkout in the Amazon Cart
Take a moment to review all of the items you've placed in your Shopping Cart. If you decide that you don't want to purchase a particular item right away, click the "Delete" button next to the title. The item will be removed from your current Shopping Cart. When you're ready to place an order for everything in the Shopping Cart click the "Proceed to checkout" button. You will be transferred to a Amazon Shopping Cart for Checkout. Once you arrive, review your order and then click the "Proceed to Checkout" button to continue with the process of checking out through Amazons Ecommerce website.
Enter your e-mail address, indicate that you are a new customer, and click the "Sign in" button. (Keep in mind that the e-mail address you provide here will be the only e-mail address to which we can send information about subsequent orders.) Do not fill in the password field. You will be asked to provide a password for your account later in the process.

Enter a Shipping Address
Enter where you would like to ship your order, and let Amazon know if any of the items are to be gifts. (If so, you'll be given a chance to order gift-wrap and add a note.) If you are shipping to a post office box, please enter the words "PO BOX" before your box number to ensure that the order is delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.
Make sure you get your stuff! Incorrectly entered addresses may unnecessarily delay shipment. Please enter address information in the appropriate boxes and double-check for typos and other errors.
APO & FPO Addresses
Need to enter an APO or FPO address on our order form? Following these steps:
- City field: Enter "APO" or "FPO."
- State/Province/Region field: Enter the two-letter code for the region where the recipient is stationed. Typically, but not always, the code is "AE" for recipients stationed in Europe, Canada, Africa, or the Middle East; "AA" for recipients stationed in the Americas; and "AP" for recipients stationed in Asia or the Pacific.
- Country field: Always select "United States" from the drop-down menu regardless of where the recipient is stationed.
Following these steps will ensure that you're charged the correct shipping amount and that your order will be delivered in a timely fashion. All shipments to APO/FPO addresses are sent via U.S. Priority or First Class Mail. We estimate 5 to 7 business days for delivery once the order has been shipped; however, some destinations may take up to 21 days.
Please note that the following items cannot be shipped to APO/FPO addresses: Apparel, camera and photo items, cell phones and service, computers, most electronics items, hardware, housewares, kitchen items, outdoor living items, software (including games), and tools.
Guam and U.S. Protectorates
Having trouble addresses for Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands (U.S.), Guam, American Samoa, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, or Federated States of Micronesia? Following these steps should help:
- Country field: Select the correct place name from the drop-down menu. If the correct place is not listed, choose "United States."
- Zip Code field: Always double check for the correct zip code.
Commercial Mail Receiving Agency (CMRA) Addresses
If you're a private mailbox holder (use a local commercial mail receiving agency), do not use "Box" for your mailbox number, instead use # or PMB. This will ensure that your address is not mistaken to be a P.O. Box, and that orders can ship to you via means other than the U.S. Postal Service.
a Shipping Method
Consider how quickly you would like to receive your order, and choose a shipping method. If you would like to take advantage of FREE Super Saver Shipping and your order qualifies, be sure to select it as your shipping option; you will not receive free shipping automatically.
We will estimate shipment dates for you on the order form, just before you submit your order. You will see estimated shipment and delivery dates in the e-mail we send you to confirm your order.
If there is more than one item in your order, you will be given the following options:
If you choose the first option, we'll consolidate your items into the fewest shipments possible. We'll show you the minimum number of shipments needed to complete your order. If you choose the second option, we will ship items to you as they become available, beginning with those already in stock. You'll be charged a per-shipment fee for each shipment. Read more about shipping preferences, and find domestic shipping rates or international shipping rates on Amazon.
Also, please note that the availability listings on our Web site are intended for single-copy orders. Orders for many copies of the same item may take longer to assemble.
The shipping charge for your order will be displayed on the order summary page just before you submit your order.
