Terms & Conditions


Payments can be made by credit card, check, money order, or international money order and made out to Little Black Cart. We will also accept payment in cash, but this is at your own risk. Not our risk, yours.

Mail Order

We do accept orders in the mail (rather than over the Internet). Send your order and a check or money order to our address at PO Box 3920, Berkeley CA 94703. We tend to prefer over email for the speed of communication but will honor requests for snail mail communication. We also beg for all orders to be attached to some consistent alpha-numeric value (often called "a name").

International Orders

Overseas customers are advised to pay by International Money Order, travelers checks, checks in dollars, drawn on a US bank, or by credit card. We cannot accept checks drawn in currencies other than dollars. Orders weighing over 4 pounds are subject to an additional postage charge.

Shipping Rates

Shipping books and paper is expensive. We wish this wasn't the case but understand the reasons. Books are heavy and fuel is expensive. We do not make a margin on shipping.

Returns Policy

You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Little Black Cart within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.). You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item. Items that are opened or returned more than 30 days after delivery will not receive a refund unless they are damaged (upon delivery to you). All sales are final!
