The (Not-So) Fine Print

These discounts are 'honor system' based and applied from self-reporting. During site-wide promotions, either the promotional or the standard discount can be applied.

Rush Fee

The Rush Fee adds 10% for each calendar day removed from the standard turnaround time.

Example:

The standard turnaround for a service costing $100 is 7 business days. You need the document 2 days early. Therefore, 20% (in this case, $20) is added to the final bill, totaling $120.

The institutional billing fee adds a flat 12% surcharge onto orders processed through university financial services offices. This fee covers the time spent completing 'vendor' applications, chasing payments over several weeks, adjusting invoices to institutional specifications, and wire fees.
