When ordering by phone, you may also pay by check or money order. Your order will not ship until your check clears your bank.
SHIPPING AND HANDLING: Cost of packing materials, staff time to prepare packages, and actual shipping charges are all factors that determine shipping. Order $50 or more in eligible products and receive free standard shipping within the United States. Items such as canes are shipped Free Matter for the Blind. Orders including heavy or bulky items, items not shipped by ACB, and items shipped to international addresses will incur shipping charges. Shipping on orders under $50 within the U.S. is based on size and weight of the order.
Mini Mall items usually ship via the United States Post Office or UPS. If you prefer a particular shipping method (such as USPS priority mail or UPS shipping), please let us know at the time you place your order; remember that additional shipping charges may apply.
Shipping costs for online orders may appear as a separate charge on your credit card. Our online store cannot apply combined shipping on orders containing multiple items, nor does it permit shipping charges to be added to your order after checkout. Therefore, it is imperative that you include a telephone number where you can be reached in the event that we need to discuss your order and possible shipping charges. Failure to include your phone number in the check-out process could result in delays in fulfilling your order.

Call us at (877) 630-7190 to receive return authorization prior to shipping a return. Return shipping costs are your responsibility.
The return and refund policy for items that ACB does not stock is the policy of the supplier. In most cases, suppliers do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, but this may not always be the case.
Refunds will be provided as a credit to the card used for the purchase, and will be made within five business days of receipt of the returned merchandise.
