Do you have to be a teacher to order books?

Many parents and other caregivers order HIP books for their children to read at home. As well, HIP Books have been purchased widely for adult education centers, English language learning centers, juvenile detention centers and other facilities where there is a need for support for struggling readers.

How long does it take to receive books that are ordered?

US orders are shipped from our Buffalo NY warehouse and Canadian orders are shipped from our Aurora ON warehouse. Orders are usually filled within 3 business days of receipt, but delivery times are sometimes subject to the vagaries of the respective postal services. If you need an order in a hurry, please contact our offices directly to arrange for expedited shipping. If more than a week has elapsed between placing and receiving your order, please contact our office to track your order. (Phone 716 446 1316 or send an email to [email protected].)

What payment methods do you accept?

Credit cards must be used for online orders. For school purchase orders, you may use your PO order form or download the pdf HIP order form and submit by fax, email or telephone. HIP will invoice your school or district for payment. Orders will also be accepted accompanied by a check/cheque or bank transfer.
