Fulfillment for ebooks/digital products is done automatically after the DarkRegions.com checkout process via a uniquely generated secure download link or through the Amazon Kindle store.
Fulfillment for physical editions is usually done from the Dark Regions Press offices in Portland, Oregon via the United States Postal Service (Domestic/International, First Class/Media Mail/Priority Mail/Express Mail). Our packaging policies guarantee the most durable bubble wrap, shipping tape and U-Line weight tested boxes. These policies have eliminated 99.9% of damage complaints from DRP customers. If a book is out of stock in the DRP offices we will notify the customer to make other arrangements and/or fulfill the order via one of our fulfillment centers. Customers will be notified about these circumstances via e-mail.
We strive to fulfill all applicable orders (if necessary items are in stock/available) within three business days of an order being placed. When an order is shipped customers receive an e-mail with USPS tracking information. Ordering through DarkRegions.com contributes more to supporting DRP business operations and we deeply appreciate and value all of our direct customers.
