The Basics:  

  • We do not have an order form, although proformas can be made upon request.

  • We require prepayment from all booksellers, as well as a hard copy of the order.  
    Send through email or fax.

  • Hospitals, libraries, and government institutions may be invoiced.  

  • There are no returns on correctly supplied books.  

  • We do not sell books on approval.  

  • We do not give out "display" or "review" copies unless instructed to do so by the publisher.  

  • There are no discounts, even to booksellers.  These are imports and our prices are competitive with European prices.


  • We accept US$ and British Pound Sterling checks and credit cards (Visa/Mastercard).

  • For credit card payment, we will need 3 items (not necessarily given over email - you can call or fax this info in too): 
    the credit card number
    the expiration date 
    the 3 digit security code found on the back of the card near the signature line. 

  • Checks should be made payable to Balogh International, Inc. 

  • Invoicing can be arranged for customers in good standing or for institutions.  
    Payments should be sent upon receipt of your order.  Any delay in payment will result in future proforma invoices.

  • Foreign payments:  please make sure your check is in US$ and payable on a USA bank or the equivalent in British Pound Sterling. 

  • We request that foreign customers use their Visa or Mastercard/ Eurocard as a method of payment, due to the length of time it takes for overseas shipments to arrive.


Ordering Options:  

Option #1:  Email   balogh@balogh.com
We do most of our orders this way, even after office hours.  We normally respond 7 seven days a week and after receiving your email we will let you know if the book is in stock, out of print, being published, etc etc.  Please do not forget to include your email address - it is not always automatically included.  If we do not respond within 1 day, please email us again, or call- we have spam filters and your email may have been accidentally deleted. We will not send books to Africa or other countries known for credit card scams.

If you know what title you want, email us the following info:

  • the title of the book and quantity desired

  • the ISBN # (if you know it) 

  • complete shipping address (NO P.O. Boxes)

  • phone number

  • method of payment (check or V/MC)


Option #2:  Phone.  1 . 217 . 355 . 9331

Use the fax to send us an order, credit card number, inquire about pricing, send proformas, whatever.  

Security Policy:

Asking for the V-code (3 digit security code found on the back of V/MC cards) is a new policy we've implemented in response to the increasing threat of credit card fraud; keep in mind we have this policy in place to protect you just as much as us. Also note that although we do not store your credit card number on our computer, we assume no responsibility for internet credit card number theft. We believe that emailing your credit card number is no less risky than giving your card to a store clerk, waiter, or any other business which can easily result in illegal use of your credit card.  We do understand apprehension about emailing that type of information, so feel free to call it in to us at the office.
