Order Processing

When you add products to your online cart and begin the check out process, you will be directed to a page where you will create an online account/profile on the ALA Store, if you do not already have one.  This is for both ALA Members and non-members.  The online ALA Store Shopping Cart team will be then able to assist with any problems with your order.  Please contact cart@press.uchicago.edu if you have difficulty ordering online. FYI for ALA Members: Please proceed through the checkout process to see your ALA Member discount applied. The shopping cart just needs a little time to connect to the ALA Membership system to verify membership. Once you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation that your order has been received. Purchase orders and credit card orders will be processed by our order and fulfillment service in the same way as mail, phone, email, or fax orders.
