Common issues facing small businesses in the age of COVID-19:

 

Shipping Delays:
While we've noticed things getting better (or maybe we're being optimistic), USPS is still experiencing delays with scanning and delivering some packages. Priority Mail is insured by default, and the surest way to receive your packages on-time. Media Mail shipments are the most delayed, and unfortunately we cannot guarantee shipping times for economy shipments. These are shipping estimates based on recent delays:

 

You can read more about USPS's current plight—and why it's so important that we continue shipping through them, rather than private carriers—here

 

  • Processing time: Same-day or 1-2 days
  • USPS Priority Mail: 1-3 business days
  • USPS Media Mail: (West Coast) 2-5 business days (avg. 3 days)
  • USPS Media Mail: (Rest of US) 3-10 business days (avg. 5 days)

 

If you do not receive your order within these time frames, or if you believe your package is lost in the ether, we are always happy to investigate further or send a replacement whenever we can. Please note that while you will receive tracking numbers, Media Mail shipments are uninsured; once the item has been marked as DELIVERED by USPS, we can not guarantee any responsibility for any lost or stolen packages (we would have no recourse to recoup the loss of inventory and replacement shipping charges), but we will do whatever we can to help. Only expedited and Priority Mail shipments are insured and guaranteed. 

 

If you would like to ship via another method, please get in touch.

Do you ship orders outside of Los Angeles?

Shipping shipping fees are calculated at checkout, based on weight and destination. Most books ship at a flat rate of $3.50 via USPS Media Mail.

Where is my Pre-Order?

All pre-orders are shipped on or before their release dates. Release dates are subject to change by the publisher. This only happens in rare instances, if anything, release dates are more likely to be bumped up rather than delayed. If you have any questions, hit us up.

 

Can I pick-up my order in person?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and for the health and safety of our staff and community, our brick & mortar location is currently closed. We hope to re-open soon and hope you'll continue to support us by shopping online!

 

I'm looking for an item I saw in-store that's not listed on your website.

Shoot us an email! We have a very limited selection of our inventory available online. If you're looking for something specific, we'd be more than happy to ship it to you!

 

Can I order or pre-order a book that's not on your website?

Yes! Email us the name and author of just about any title you're looking for and we can usually get it for you! 

 

Does Rep Club sell audio books?

Yes! We have partnered with Libro.fm & Bookshop.org for all audio books sales. We receive a commission on any purchase or subscription made through our partners that continues to support our business!

 

I'm looking for large print titles—can I order through you?

Heck yeah! If a large print edition is available from the publisher, we'd be more than happy to order for you! Just email or call!
