How do pre-orders work?

New titles are available for purchase up from two months before it’s scheduled publication. During this period, you can pre-order a title at a discounted price.

Your pre-ordered print book will be printed and shipped out to you only when it is published. If you have pre-ordered an eBook the download link for the eBook will be available in your Packt account immediately once the book is published.

Your pre-order payment will be taken immediately from your Credit Card/PayPal.

Charging your credit card for pre-orders

When you place your pre-order, we ask for your credit card details. As with all payments to Packt Publishing, these details are entered into the secure servers of our payment provider. They are not at any time held on our local servers. Payment is taken at the point of purchase rather than at the publication date.

Charging PayPal for pre-orders

When you pay for a pre-order with PayPal, payment is taken at the point of purchase rather than at the publication date.

For eBook pre-orders, the link to download the eBook will be available in your account and Print copies will be shipped, once the book is published. You will receive an email notification from us for the below reasons:

  • Book Published
  • Book Publishing Delayed
  • Book Cancelled

Cancellation

You can cancel any pre-orders up to 48 hours before the title is released. Please email [email protected] to cancel your pre-order.
