The processing of orders for Acorn Press titles takes place twice a week, usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Local orders (that is, within Australia), should be received within one week of the processing. The exception is copies of books ordered before the title’s official publication date (which is usually the launch date). In this case, the orders will be posted the week following the launch.

International orders take longer for delivery, depending on the shipping option chosen. Airmail orders may take as little as a week to arrive, but they may also take longer due to factors outside Acorn’s control. While the shipping charge for seamail orders is cheaper than airmail, these orders take significantly longer to arrive and Acorn has no way of guaranteeing delivery by a set date.

Please refer to your confirmation email to access your order status online.

We accept Visa and MasterCard only. Credit cards are handled by our secure server and charged the next business day after the order is filled. Payment can be made by cheque or money order which should be made payable to: Acorn Press Ltd
