Alternatives to on-line payment

If you, for whatever reason, are not in a position where you can make your payment on-line from our web site, then here is an outline of some possible and some unacceptable alternatives.

Please be advised that there is a $10 charge for all manually expedited orders that are based on alternative payments we need to handle individually and manually. On top of that, there is a $25 charge for receiving any other payment than cash or a direct bank deposit.

First, the possible alternatives (click on your choice for more details):

  • You can pay cash.

  • You can pay with a direct bank transfer to an account in Denmark. For people in Europe, this is simple and easy.

  • You can pay with a certified non-negotiable bank draft ("cashier's check") or a money order, obtained from your local post office.

  • You could pay by wire transfer (link opens in new window) - which is only relevant for larger amounts, such as a wholesale order or payment for a special assignment. For a retail order of a book or video, the bank fees are too high to make any sense....

The following payment options, however convenient and attractive they might be to you, are, unfortunately, unacceptable to us, and we shall return or refuse acceptance of such payment, should you try regardless our warning:

  • We do not accept personal checks or any other checks, signed by you personally. If we get them, we destroy them.

  • We do not accept C.O.D.

  • We do not accept payments via Western Union - the closest pick-up location is 3 hours away....

  • We do not accept credit cards that cannot be processed through PayPal.

  • We do not accept any other fancy payment option not mentioned here.

Ordering by phone:

If you do not have a credit card or a PayPal account you can use on-line, we can find other ways of taking your order manually, even cash. You are welcome to give us a call at +1-403-770-1867 so we can help you with the necessary instructions. (If you call from Europe, you may use +45 36 98 02 98 evenings only.)

Be aware that we do not take credit card information over the phone - it is a ridiculous risk for you and a very unnecessary liability for us, as we will have to use that information on-line ourselves, in order to expedite your order - and then you might as well do it yourself via the links on this page! And then we have to take care of destroying the information we got from you.... Paying by credit card via PayPal online is far more secure than any other ways you possibly could use your credit card - physically handing it to a merchant you see in person is far more risky...

Please note that there is a $10 charge for all expediting any off-line orders manually.

Please be aware that you are generally not supposed to send cash in ordinary mail, but you can courier cash - or ask your post office for other mailing options.

If you do indeed send cash in ordinary mail, we shall not reject it, but it is entirely on your risk, as we are not responsible for it going lost or being confiscated. You reduce that risk dramatically by not including any coins, but rounding up the price to the nearest number that can be paid in bills only. In such case, we will not provide any change, but accept the increased price as a tip.

Ordering by mail:

If you do not have a credit card or a checking account you can use on-line, you can always get an International Money Order*) from a nearby post office or bank, where you can pay cash.

Make sure the Money Order is made payable to K9joy and add $25.00 to cover our processing and banking costs. (If anything else than exactly the four letters AAMI is put into the field "Payable to...", we cannot cash your Money Order, and it will be destroyed when we receive it!)

Then send it in an envelope you can trace to this address

3980C Riverview Road
Creston, BC, V0B 1G2 Canada
(If you live in the USA, you may use this address instead:
K9joy, Box 641, Porthill, ID 83853)

Be aware that, regardless the main address being in Canada, the amount is in US funds! (And you will have to pay your local post office in your own currency, so please do not get confused...)

Please enclose with your payment the information we need about you, including:

  • What exactly you order - we need the title and the format (download, CD, print)...
  • Your name and shipping address
  • Your e-mail address
  • Your phone number

*) We do not accept personal cheques, whether drawn on a personal account or a business account - it takes over 6 weeks for the funds to clear and costs the same, so it is a ridiculous way of processing payments...

Ordering through bank transfer:

If you do not want to pay on-line with a credit card, then we can receive your payment on the following bank accounts:
