There are a few reasons why you may be charged upon checking out of the bookstore. The most common reason is that you’ve selected a Print-On-Demand (POD) copy of your ebook instead of the pre-selected ebook. If you’d like the POD copy it will ask you to pay the POD price upon checking out. Please note that POD prices vary from book to book and also include shipping costs.
Another reason could be that you’ve selected an optional textbook for a course. Optional textbooks are not necessary to complete assignments but may be helpful in supplementing your course material.
The final reason is that you’ve selected to have it shipped to a PO Box. EDMAP ships via UPS and there is an upgrade in shipping cost to ship to a PO Box because of this.
If you do not want to pay for any of these extra charges you can simply go back and switch back to the ebook only instead of the POD or remove your optional textbook. If the shipping was the reason for the charge, you can go back to where you input your shipping information and you can update it to a physical address.
If none of the above reasons fit your situation, please reach out to your Bookstore Manager and they can research it or help you with ordering your books!
