Why is my credit card charge from Baker Book House?
Orders are processed and fulfilled by Baker Book House, an affiliate of Baker Academic.

Am I being charged twice for my pre-order?
When you pre-order a title, your credit card is not immediately charged. The charge is shown as pending for a few days. When your order ships, your credit card will officially be charged for the correct amount. In some situations, two different charges are shown, a pending charge and an official charge with a penny difference. You have not been charged twice. This pending charge will be resolved in deletion after a few days.

My bank statement indicates that the payment for my order is recurring. Why?
Our credit card processor pre-authorizes your card for the purchase amount. If you pre-order a book or purchase one that doesn't ship right away, the initial pre-authorization hold will be removed from your credit card after a few days as we do not finalize charges until books are shipped. We want to ensure that you are only charged when your books are on their way. In some cases, a bank may identify a purchase as a 'recurring' charge. This is due to the gap between the pre-authorization and the actual payment capture. You will not be charged multiple times for your online purchases.

I'm consistently encountering an error while trying to check out.
