Shipping

Do you ship products internationally?

If you are ordering from outside the United States, you are welcome to order from Crossway.org. Shipping to countries outside of North America can be expensive; we encourage you to look closely at our shipping rates. Crossway does not have rights to ship all of our products internationally. In the event we cannot fulfill your order, we will let you know and cancel your order. See our International Distributors page for more information.

What are your international shipping rates?

The shipping rate for international orders is calculated based on the weight of the item(s) in the order. You may choose either First Class Mail International or Priority Mail International for those countries where it is available. Orders are shipped via the US Postal Service or courier, and prices quoted are in US dollars. To learn more about our international shipping rates, call our customer service team at (1-800) 543-1659 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. US CDT (GMT -0600) or email service@crossway.org.

How do I update my account information?

I forgot my password. How can I retrieve it?

Your password can be reset here.

Is my online transaction secure? Is my credit card number safe?

Crossway abides by industry-wide best practices for web security. We treat customer credit card information with great care. All communication of credit card information is encrypted, and card information is stored using asymmetric encryption techniques—the keys to decrypt the card information are stored on Crossway's secure, firewalled servers, separate from the card information itself. Furthermore, we never store CVV codes—they are used to authorize the transaction, then discarded. These are best practices in the industry, and we follow them extremely carefully.

Ebooks

Will Crossway ebooks work on my e-reading device (Kindle, etc.)?

Yes, the corresponding format will work on virtually all e-reading devices currently available.

What file should I download for my device?

For Kindle devices and apps, download the MOBI version of the ebook. For other e-reading devices, download the ePUB version. Finally, we also offer a PDF version of each ebook, however this should only be used as a last resort as e-readers typically do not support as many reading features for PDFs as for other formats.

How do I get the ebook onto my device?

For mobile/tablet devices, access your Virtual Bookshelf via your mobile browser, select the appropriate file format from the bookshelf to download the file to your device, and then open the file with your preferred e-reading app.

For Kindle eInk Devices, download the file from your Virtual Bookshelf onto your computer. Plug your device into your computer, a drive folder will appear on your desktop. Drag the ebook file into the "Documents" folder of your device. You can also add an ebook to your Kindle eInk device by emailing it to your Kindle email address (see instructions here).

Can I read Crossway ebooks on my computer?

Yes. There are many desktop e-reading apps that will allow you to read ebooks on your computer.

Will my ebook notes and highlights sync to the cloud (via Amazon, Apple, etc.)?

It depends. For Kindle users, if you email the file to your Kindle email address, the file will be saved to your Amazon account and will sync across devices and apps. Alternatively, you can use Amazon's free Send to Kindle tool. Note: syncing is not available with ebooks added to your Kindle device in any other way.

For iBooks users, as long as the ebook has been downloaded to all of your Apple devices, syncing should occur from within the app.

Do Crossway ebooks have DRM (digital rights management) protection?

No, our ebooks do not have DRM protection. Crossway ebooks are for personal use only, but can be read on an unlimited number of devices.
