In light of the widespread credit card fraud these past few months, through Target and Rosauers, we wanted to share with you a message from Anthology, who provides our point of sale system and our credit card processing through Element Payment Services:
Credit card security in the wake of the Target breach
After the massive theft of credit card information from Target, some Anthology users and their customers may be wondering about the security of credit card information taken through Anthology. The answer: Anthology’s credit card module using Element Payment Services is immune to the kind of breach seen at Target, for two reasons: First, no credit card information of any kind is stored within Anthology. Second, credit card information that is swiped through the Element swipers is encrypted from the moment of the swipe all the way to its processing at Element. It never exists in a form usable by hackers at any point in the traffic. So if you are using Anthology with Element, rest assured: your customer data is secure.
Our store's shelves aren't big enough to hold every book in the world...so during the school year we special order books for our customers at least twice a week! In the majority of cases we can get books within 3 to 5 days, but to avoid disappointment it is always best to order a couple weeks before you need it. We require a deposit on special orders of 30% of the purchase price, payable when you place the special order. You are always encouraged to prepay the entire amount.
Sometimes a book will take a week or two to arrive, and if it is difficult to find, out of print, out of stock, self-published, or from a very small publisher, it might take several weeks. If the book is not available from our usual distributors, will will get the details of the book you want, do some research, and get back to you about the cost and estimated arrival date. Full prepayment will be required for special orders that we can not obtain from our usual distributors.
You can place special orders in person at the store, or use this website to special order your books. Thank you!
