eBooks Terms of Use

Access to digital content and eBooks

Some of our newer print books now come with free access to a digital version of the book – viewable on iOS, Android, or by using an online/offline reader. Digital content is accessed through a code that is provided in the front of the book when a new shrink-wrapped version of the book is purchased. Sorry, complementary digital access is available only with editions of titles that contain the code. If you have purchased an earlier edition that did not contain a code, please contact customer service for details, info@cardiotext.com.

Payment Options

Cardiotext accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Institutional purchase orders are also accepted. Your credit card will be charged during checkout.

Credit Card Security Code
For your protection, we require that you enter the CVC code when making a credit card purchase with us. Your CVC code is found on the front of your American Express (4 digits) and on the signature panel of your Visa, Discover and MasterCard (3 digits on back of card).  When Cardiotext validates CVC codes, it helps to protect you against Internet fraud.

Purchase Orders
If you are a corporate or institutional customer, and would like to use a purchase order, please email your organization's purchase order to: info@cardiotext.com or fax to +1 (612) 922-7556. After your order has been approved, you may continue to fax, email, and call in future orders. 

Wire Transfers
Cardiotext accepts wire transfers only from customers outside of the United States. We will add a $35.00 USD surcharge on orders paid by wire transfer. We do not begin to process your order until we receive your wire transfer. It typically takes 3 business days for the funds to show up in our account after you have completed your wire transfer. Contact Customer Service to arrange a wire transfer payment at info@cardiotext.com or call +1 (612) 925-2053.

Pro-forma Invoices
The easiest way to quickly obtain a pro-forma invoice is to use our online shopping cart. Simply select the items of interest by clicking on the “add to cart button.” Book prices and any shipping charges will then be available to you once books are in the shopping cart. (There is no obligation to you when books are put into the shopping cart.) The shopping cart can be printed and be used as a pro-forma invoice.
