What does it mean when the price for my book is listed as $0.00?
An item listed at $0.00 means that we do not yet have a price from the publisher. The item is NOT free and as soon as we are notified about the price, it will be automatically updated on the web. If you order a book listed at $0.00 you will be charged the same price as everyone else, as soon as the correct price is known.
Why does my credit card decline even though I have sufficient funds?
The Campus Bookstore website has very strict security measures in place. Your credit card may decline due to the following reasons:
Do you accept phone orders?
Unfortunately we cannot accept orders over the phone due to security/privacy risks.
Why does my online credit card statement indicate an amount higher than the originally quoted order total?
All online orders are pre-authorized for an amount that is $10.00 higher than the originally quoted order total. This amount is pre-authorized only and not automatically charged to your card. Once orders are picked and processed through a cash register in the Campus Bookstore the originally quoted total price will appear on your credit card statement and the pre-authorized amount will disappear. New PCI Compliance laws prohibit the storing of credit card information. The additional $10.00 preauthorization is built in to cover any fluctuations in shipping charges based on shipping location and/or weight of each order. Any customer with an order where the originally quoted total will change will be contacted prior to any additional amount being charged to their credit card.
Where can I buy used book?
Used books can be purchased at the Oshawa Campus Bookstore and the Tuck Shop in the Oshawa Campus Student Centre. Please note, we do not carry used books frequently nor do we have stock for every title.
Recommendation: Be sure to check the editions and ISBN number at the back of the book to be sure they match before buying used textbooks.
