(Dave and Barb Shelton) are pleased to
announce that WE ARE NOW TAKING CREDIT CARDS!!!!!
(The four to the right!) We
don't have our online shopping cart set up yet, so for now I am just
taking orders on an individual basis: by email or phone.
of the costs and time involved in taking
credit cards, we have a $20
minimum order requirement, but this can INCLUDE shipping!
are your two options for credit card ordering... (The second one, by
PHONE, is waaaaaay at the bottom of this page.)
copy and paste all the text in the box
below into an email addressed to me (click
and one will pop up!),
and then fill it in with
the items you want to order (do not try to do this here on this
page, it's not set to do that), and then click "SEND"!
Then call us (phone number below) with your credit card number and
expiration date AND your phone number (in case your email failed to
make it to me), and I'll take it from
there! (If for some reason, you do not hear back from me, try me
sometimes things get lost in cyberspace, and I want you to have a
back-up plan to reach me!)

Another clever option
getting your credit card
You could send me your CC number in 4 separate emails, with just a segment of the numbers in each one.
Please letter each segment in case they come in the wrong order. If that doesn't make sense, here's what I mean...
Let's say your number is
4500 3339 7788 4040...
Okay, you'd send me one email that says just this in it:
A ~ 4500
next email would have just this in it: B ~ 3339
The next email: C ~ 7788
And the last email: D ~ 4040
a slight variation of this same idea...
One gal had a very clever idea that I got such a kick out of! She sent me her credit card number in four separate emails, one labeled: "A book order" ... another labeled "a Book order" ... another labeled: "a Cook order" ... and the last titled "a book orDer."
And each of the four segments of her credit card number were in each of those
emails! The ONE capital letter in each subject line (A B C or D) indicated which of the four segments it was! Isn't that just too clever?!?!
It just made my day! You're welcome to do the
all of these emails will come from the same email
address (yours) that your original order came from, I'll know what to do with them. (Piece
them together to form your number!) You won't
even need to include your name as I'll already have
that from the first email I got from you, and these
other four will come from the same email
address! Utterly brilliant, don't you
A Word to the Paranoid *~
The only way you would even have had a problem to begin with would be if someone
actually chose to hack into your account, which they technically could do, but chances of it actually happening are very slim.
The chances of them figuring out the above scheme (they'd have to be able to access all FIVE emails, including the one that said what *type* of CC it was, to be able to actually get your whole number.
course, someone could figure it out our
clever scheme, BUT (and I hate to burst your bubble
or make someone who's already paranoid even MORE
paranoid, but) someone could ALSO hack into your or
our phone line, or get your
number out of an envelope that you sent via the post
office. And even if the method you choose is,
safe and secure, you could get a rep that's
dishonest! So any way you look at it, there
are risks. Just do what you feel most
comfortable ~ or should I say LEAST UNcomfortable ~ with!

If you are in a hurry or are just plain overwhelmed with
this whole process, feel free to call in your order to us
on our family line: 360-423-4912. Just leave a
message with the names of the books you want to order and
all the above credit card info so I'll know what to send
you, who to send it to, and what credit card you're paying
(Specifically what I need to know is in this
red font above.)
The answering machine message (recorded by me, Barb) that you'll get will tell you to call
another number for homeschool related stuff. However,
I doNOT want you to call that number for credit card
ordering or even leaving your credit card number!
The above number (423-4912) truly IS the one I
want you to call!
you have any questions
is simply not allowed!)
