|1. What is this website?
This place is where US residents can order Bob Ong's books the
faster, easier, and cheaper way. Before BobOngBooks.com, I had
to rely on either having relatives in the Philippines buy me
copies or ordering through another online store only to get hit
with exorbitant shipping charges- not to mention a horrendous

5. How soon will my order arrive?
I try to ship the same day order is placed. Barring problems
with release of payment, two to three days after placing the
order is the norm.
6. Why did you raise your shipping charges?
I was initially trying to keep prices down by using USPS Media
Mail Rate. But this postage type, depending on delivery address,
could take as long as 10 days- sometimes longer. It was also a
bit unreliable as I have had a couple of customers report that
they *never* even received their order. And since timely
delivery is a major part of customer satisfaction, my back is
pressed firmly against the wall- I just so have to raise prices.
The good news is orders should now be delivered within 2-3 days.
There's also a Delivery Confirmation (via web) service thrown in
7. How do I get in touch with you if there's a problem with
my order or if I have a request?
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org which I check every 5
minutes- 9 AM until 5 PM EST. Because I have a regular day job
too, I can't release my phone number here unless you plan to buy
100 pieces of books and are extremely good-looking at the same
8. Do you accept returns?
No, I don't accept returns. These are books we are talking
about. Not even Amazon and Barnes & Noble accept returns on
reading materials. Besides, for a $5.75 commodity, returns are
not worth all the shipping and credit card chargeback hassles.
9. What types of credit cards do you accept?
I accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
10. Are five books all you are selling?
Aside from the Featured Book of the Moment, I am selling all of
Bob Ong's five books. But when Bob Ong comes up with new
titles, those will be featured here as well.
11. Do you ship to Canada?
On a case to case basis, I do. Buyer needs to shoulder exact
postage to Canada as determined by the US Post Office here. As a
guide, three books cost about US$5.05 to ship to Orleans,
Canada. Email me at email@example.com for more
12. Where are the autographed copies you used to sell?
Unfortunately, I have exhausted all of my signed copies. Bob Ong
also has indefinitely stopped book-signing even for
