I DON’T LIKE ORDERING ON THE INTERNET
JoshuaBooks.com uses 128-bit encryption key over Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to provide the highest level of security. At the 128-bit level, cryptographers consider this encryption, based on the RSA algorithm, impossible to crack as it would take millions of years with the fastest computers to try all the combinations.
Along with ease-of-use, we know how important security is for you when doing transactions online. For your convenience, we offer product payment using Visa and Master Card through PayPal. As an added security measure, you can also pay using a PayPal Account, whereby you will not have to display your credit card details to us.
We understand you want your online transactions to be simple and secure and by verifying your card or account via PayPal, you can feel safe when using our system to make payments to us.
I HAVE A PROBLEM ORDERING
If you are having a problem ordering—using the Cart, Checkout or Payment System—firstly check to see if you have your cookies enabled. If the problem persists, send an enquiry to our Webmaster here and provide the following:
- The type of computer you are using (PC or Mac)
- What platform you are using (XP, Vista, etc)
- What browser you are using (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc)
- Which version you are using
- The nature of the problem, giving the clear steps and pages through which you went and explain from where you cannot proceed
Also make sure that you follow the checkout process all the way to the end. Often customers don’t follow the process all the way through and the Paypal payment is missed and thus the order is incomplete. After completing an order, check your Paypal account to check the order has been processed.
I HAVE FORGOTTEN MY PASSWORD!
When you click “Lost Password?” just below the Members Login form on the left side of any page, the system will immediately send you a token to the email address you have used previously. Once you have received the token, you will be able to use it to choose a new password for your account. If you do not receive it within a few minutes, it may be because you are using a different (or incorrect) email address.
I HAVE FORGOTTEN MY USERNAME
When you click “Forgot your Username?” just below the Members Login form on the left side of any page, the system will immediately send your username to the email address you have used previously. If you do not receive it within a few minutes, it may be because you are using a different (or incorrect) email address.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Orders are usually processed and despatched the same day and certainly within 48 hours from when you place your order. The date you receive your order depends on the delivery address, but it should be within 21 days. We suggest you expect your order within 21 days and then you will be pleasantly surprised to actually receive it within a week or two.
CAN I HAVE MY ORDER SHIPPED TO ANOTHER ADDRESS OTHER THAN MY BILLING ADDRESS?

To see what this cost will be without committing yourself to buying, select the products you wish to buy and proceed with your order as normal. About halfway through the process, the system will automatically calculate the shipping cost and display it for you.
