CAI makes every effort to maintain adequate inventory to fill your order promptly. However, occasionally an item will be out of stock. Rather than hold the entire order, CAI will ship a partial order and backorder the unavailable items. Backordered items are usually shipped within 30 days of your original shipment. If the backordered item is not available within 30 days, CAI will contact you.

Payment and Pricing

All purchases must be prepaid by cash or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express). Prices are subject to change without notice.


CAI offers discounts to certain groups in recognition of their status as wholesalers, members, authors, and others. In addition, bulk discounts are offered on some products. All discounts are applied to the nonmember amount unless otherwise noted. Discounts may not be combined unless otherwise noted. Please see the discount policy for more information.
