PRODUCT AND ORDERS
SharedBook's application can be used to create books and other products as described throughout the SharedBook website and any promotional materials. You are able to view your book prior to finalizing your order; please note that the photos in this preview are in low resolution. Orders are not binding upon SharedBook until accepted by SharedBook. Acceptance of the order will be evidenced by shipment of the product.
Please refer to the product description in promotional materials and on the SharedBook website for the listing of the price of each of the products available for sale directly through SharedBook. SharedBook reserves the right to change the pricing on its products and to offer discounts from time to time. SharedBook has no control over the price of products sold by affiliates through the embedded links found within the text and content on the SharedBook website. Any applicable sales promotions or rebate offers are not valid when combined with any other sales promotions or rebate offers for the same product.
SharedBook does not currently have the ability to process tax exempt orders. As required by law, SharedBook will collect appropriate taxes in all states where SharedBook has a physical presence. When applicable, SharedBook will provide an estimate of any tax or other fee of any nature imposed upon any sales transaction made on the SharedBook website by any federal, state or local government authority. You acknowledge that such fees are in addition to the price quoted for the product you purchased and that you are solely responsible for such fees. SharedBook reserves the right to revise such estimates and to charge a different final amount on your credit card, provided that such difference is nominal and accurately reflects the balance of the fee imposed by any government agencies without adding any surcharges, such as processing or service fees.
Payments are charged to your credit card at the time you place your order. If you received a voucher code for a presale order or other promotional offer, the voucher code must be inserted during the online checkout process for an advance purchase or a promotional offer to be recognized. Vouchers do not include international shipping and handling charges or extra pages that you added to the book, so if you are requesting international shipment for your book you will be charged additionally for international shipping and handling fees and/or extra pages during checkout. SharedBook accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express and there are no credit card surcharges imposed by SharedBook. SharedBook will not process any orders where a credit card confirmation number is not provided by the credit card company or its representatives or affiliates. Credit card payments will be accepted from select countries at the moment; however, SharedBook may decide to accept credit card payments from other countries at its sole discretion, please contact Customer Service if you are experiencing difficulties with your credit card purchase. All payments are to be made in United States Dollars or Canadian Dollars, as indicated on our product website. Additional conversion fees may be charged by your credit card company in order to convert a foreign payment into US Dollars or Canadian Dollars, as the case may be. SharedBook will provide you by email with an invoice itemizing your purchase to the address that you provided during the registration process.
