Price Changes

Shipping/handling charges will be actual costs and are prepaid and added to your invoice  (FOB Houston). Please note that we are not responsible for duties or import/export taxes and we will not bill for these.

A credit card receipt/invoice will be included in each shipment.

We are unable to process card numbers sent via email.  Please do not email your credit card number to us; it is not a secured payment method. If we receive payment card information by email, the email will be deleted immediately without further processing.

If paying by credit card, your card will be charged at the time of purchase.

Tax-exempt Sales

If you are billed in Texas but are tax-exempt, note your tax exemption number in "order instructions/comments" during checkout and we will manually refund the sales tax when we process the order. (Your final invoice included with your shipment will reflect the lack of sales tax.)

Please note that we can not waive sales tax without that tax exemption number. 

Out of Stock Rush Orders

Publishers add an extra fee to all orders shipped via:

  • UPS Red (next day)
  • UPS Blue (2nd day)
  • UPS Orange (3 day)
  • Drop ship (publisher to customer)

The cost of shipping from the publisher to UpStryve will be at the customer's expense.

Drop Shipping

We are able to ship certain orders directly from our publishers and vendors to our customers.  There are publishers and vendors that may charge a fee for drop shipped orders which will be at the expense of the customer.  We will always choose the least expensive route for shipping unless otherwise requested by our customer.


UpStryve updates its website on a frequent basis. We will do everything we can to honor our pricing, however if there is a current price change that has not yet been updated on our website we will send a e-mail price change notification prior to processing the order for confirmation.

We reserve the right to make changes without notice, and are not responsible for errors or omissions.

Shipping International

UpStryve is able to ship to most international destinations.  UpStryve uses all the major carriers to ship.  UpStryve is NOT responsible for customs related issues at the destination country.  One Exam prep has no control over whether the receiving country will hold the shipment for any reason.  It is recommended to use a United States freight forwarder for shipments over $1,000 to any international country.
