International shipments are sent DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) which means the buyer is responsible for any import taxes or delivery fees once the package enters the country. Most countries have *De Minimus* values, below which no duty or tax is charged.
Estimated Shipping Time
Package transit times are counted from the day the shipment leaves the warehouse. Shipments are typically processed and shipped the next business day following placing an order. US shipments average 2-3 days for delivery but can take as long as 10 days. International shipments originating from the US take approximately 10 days to arrive at destination countries. However, customs delays can be as long as 8 weeks and are beyond our control.

We will issue refunds minus shipping fee for print books returned to us within 30 days of purchase for any reason. Books returned for improper addresses can be reshipped upon request, but may be subject to additional shipping fees.

In MEAP, the Manning Early Access Program, you are purchasing a book before it's complete. We offer the following options for returning or exchanging a MEAP.
Within 30 days of purchase, you may exchange a MEAP for any other Manning eBook or MEAP of similar value. If you pre-ordered a print copy, we will ship that print copy immediately or, if it's in MEAP, as soon as it becomes available.
If we cancel a book in MEAP, you may exchange it for any other book or request a refund of your purchase price.
From time to time books in MEAP proceed more slowly than expected. In such cases, we may offer you the opportunity to exchange your book outside the ordinary 30-day window.
Sales of published (non-MEAP) downloadable products are not eligible for refund or exchange.
