How to order Consumer Action’s publications

Note: In compliance with San Francisco's shelter-in-place order, Consumer Action staff are working from home. As such, we will not be able to ship print publications until we can return to our office. Despite the delay, we are still accepting orders!

Instructions for non-profit agencies

Non-profit groups and government agencies may order our printed publications in bulk. (Not all Consumer Action publications are available in print.) 

Beginning April 1, 2019, we are introducing a new Affiliate membership program, which includes six bulk publication orders at no additional charge. Non-members will be billed $15 per 500 copies. We will send an invoice for you to approve before shipment. 

Please be advised that shipments may take up to four weeks. However, a PDF version of our publications is available for immediate download from within the publication page.

For more information, email Consumer Action at [email protected].

Order online

To order printed publications online, visit the publication page and, under the "Order Publication" heading, select the number of copies you would like and click "Add to Cart." When you are finished selecting the publications for your order, click the "Checkout" button that appears in the upper right corner of the page.
