Due to the nature of our services we process orders promptly after payment has been received. When ordering on-line, you will be asked for your credit card information. If you wish to mail in your order, with our forms, please include your credit card number and card expiration date. We gladly accept checks or money orders for U.S. dollars drawn on U.S. banks for your mailed-in orders. Sorry, we do not ship on a C.O.D basis.
ICMAD will provide refunds for publications purchased, if you are not satisfied, as long as they are returned in good condition to ICMAD offices at 21925 Field Parkway, Suite 205, Deer Park, IL 60010.
