Please Note: if you are paying using a PayPal Debit MasterCard please choose the regular online Credit Card / Debit card payments and not the PayPal option which is used by people who have funds available or have credit / debit cards and / or bank accounts associated with their PayPal account.
Important: PayPal payments (as in all orders) have to be completed using our Shopping Cart system. Payments for items that have not been processed in our Shopping Cart are ignored and not processed. This usually happens when potential customers think all they have to do is find the price of the product, log into their PayPal account and make the payment. The problem with this is that no shipping prices can be added and email receipts and shipping documents are not generated.
Have a PayPal account? If you wish to use your PayPal account simply choose the PayPal payment option in our shopping cart.
Transactions must be marked as cleared before your order will be shipped. Verified PayPal customers are cleared the same business day. Unverified accounts and e-checks may take longer to clearTop

The only exception to this time guarantee is if THE PACKAGE IS DELAYED DUE TO EMERGENCY CONDITIONS BEYOND UPS' CONTROL. This could include weather, warehouse closings, airport closings, UPS not picking up packages (due to extreme weather) and other unforeseen events beyond any reasonable control. All other shipping options like USPS mail and UPS Ground are only time estimates and we do not guarantee them.
We have 4 different shipping choices in the continental US and two options for Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
International orders at this time have only one shipping option via 1st Class Global Mail and are shipped within 3 - 5 business days

Remember you can also use the cart as a calculator for price and shipping. You are not obligated to buy. Just enter the item(s) you want into the cart. (Remember you can always remove it later or change the quantity) Choose your shipping option and it will calculate what the final price will be. This will be helpful with making your decision on what to buy and how fast you want it.
Your order of in-stock merchandise will arrive in 4-8 'business'days, unless you have selected UPS Priority delivery. Please note that business days do not count weekends and holidays! We will notify you if any item cannot be shipped within 30 days and you will be given the option to wait, replace the article with something else or cancel your order and have your money returned to your credit card or account.

Error Message - "No Common Encryption Algorithm"
If you are receiving the error message "No Common Encryption Algorithm", it means your browser is out of date and is not compatible with the latest 128 bit encryption codes needed to 'secure' your order. If you are using Internet Explorer (IE) 4.01 or 4.5 for the Macintosh (or lower versions), you will receive this error, as these browsers do not support this high level encryption.
To correct this we recommend Internet Explorer 7 from Microsoft.Top

Order Confirmation Number / Receipt
Upon completing your order you will receive receipt showing your confirmation number. Please save this number and refer to it if you need to contact a Customer Service Representative. The best way is to include the subject heading into any email correspondence (or the confirmation number and your name). This will ensure that your request will be answered in the shortest possible time. Emails that do not include the proper information delay locating the order and processing your request.Top
Processing an Order
Orders are shipped fast and in many cases direct from the publisher to you. You pick the speed from non priority UPS Ground and USPS Mail to Priority UPS delivery. Non Priority orders such as UPS Ground and USPS Mail are shipped within 72 hours of receipt. So if you ordered on a Monday, it would ship by Thursday at the latest (during non busy seasons they often ship within 48 hours but remember any and all warehouses can fall behind a bit especially in busy seasons or be closed due to severe winter weather) Priority orders such as UPS Orange, Blue and Red are shipped within 24 hours or even same day if received before 9 AM EST. Remember these are business days only. Nothing ships on the weekend. So if you order on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the next business day will be Monday
International orders are usually processed in 3-4 days as they take more time to prepare and in many cases we must wait for the product from more than one publisher before sending them off.
Once orders are shipped, you will receive a confirmation email to let you know that the order is on it's way.Top
Change / Cancel Orders
Stagepass.com processes your orders very quickly. If you find that you have made an incorrect order, or need the information changed log into your MyStagepass Account page by clicking on the button (top right of every page) and follow the Order Tracking & Management Link.

Although you can't add anything too the order you can update quantities, delete items and change billing and shipping information.
To change your billing or shipping information be sure to understand the concept that there is only 'one' address book for both. If you 'edit' an address under (let's say) billing, the shipping address will also change since you would be modifying the address that may be used for both shipping and billing. In order change your billing or shipping address so that they are different from one another you need to first add a different address to the Address Book. First click on the button next to shipping or billing information. Then click on the button at the top left. From there add your new address and then click 'use this as my billing or shipping address' as needed. The next time you see your address book there will be two addresses and depending if you under Billing or Shipping it will be marked as default.

*Note, you have to sign in to the accounts page before the on / off link is visible.Top
Use of Spam Filters and Programs
We have noticed an increase of customers not getting their email receipts, shipping notices and responses to their questions due to the use of spam filters. This can lead to customers not being told their items are on back order, out of print etc. If you are an use a spam filter and feel your queries are being ignored and / or you are not receiving your email receipts and shipping notices, this is the most likely explanation. Please try contacting us from a different email address if you suspect this is happening. Please be careful when using these filters as many will mark our customer service emails with a false positive and our emails end up in a Spam folder or worse (deleted) Also please do not block our domain as it will be impossible for us to communicate with you regarding your order or to answer your email questions. This is especially true with AOL customersIf at all possible whitelist our domain stagepass.com if you have that capability.
People who use verification spam filters may not receive their emails on time and sometimes not at all. There is one specific company that asks us for a question that only the customers friends know. Therefore of course we can not reply to those as there is no way for us to know the answer.
Rest assured we will never give out your personal information or email address to anyone else nor will we abuse it in anyway including sending offers etc. which we consider spam and a customer nuisance unless specifically requested.Top
Return Policy and Procedure
Please follow all return instructions carefully to insure that your return is processed correctly. Not following procedure can cause serious delays in processing your return refund or credit. Unauthorized returns containing items that are ineligible will not be processed. No refunds will be given for any returnable item that was simply returned to sender or without a return authorization. In these cases it will be store credit only. In the case of returned to sender (which goes directly back to the publisher) a store credit will be given once the publisher forwards it to us again providing the items were elligible in the first place. See restricted item list below which have conditional return criteriaOur Return Policy
If you have received damaged, defective or incorrectly shipped merchandise, Contact us and we will gladly replace the merchandise without additional charge, or provide you with a full refund.
Returns must authorized by email first and received within 30 days following our instructions as outline here. Failure to follow our return instructions will lead to delays in processing your request or possibly even your return order getting lost. 'Do Not' simply refuse the package or return to sender as many times they are shipped from the publisher. (especially priority orders)
If you're not 100% satisfied with any purchase that is eligible for return (see list of exceptions below), for any other reason, simply return the product in its original packaging within 30 days and we'll gladly issue you a refund or store credit. Again, please be sure to follow our instructions on returning items. Items returned to an incorrect address can cause serious delays in processing.
The return package must be received by us and verified that it is in original condition and packaging before a refund or store credit can be issued.
Videos / DVD's, SongKits, Preview, ShowTrax / ChoirTrax Cd's, Midi File Disks, scores, single music sheets (including choral pieces) & musicals (Christmas pageants etc.) can only be exchanged for another of the same title when found to be damaged or defective. This is due to the nature of the formats and the ease in which they can be copied and to prevent sending items back that are used for evaluation purposes and can not be resold as new.
Christmas musicals, midi disks, songbooks etc. will not be accepted as returns after Dec 15th unless it was delivered after said date. Preview Cd's are non returnable items.
Exceptions: If the above items are wrapped in cellophane which has not been removed we will accept those back for store credit or refund. Please mention which of these options you prefer when requesting a return authorization. However, if the item has been used (cellophane removed), the customer service manager must approve a one time courtesy return and a 25% restocking fee would be deducted from the store credit or refund. Choral Musical Preview Cd's are not accepted back unless the cellophane has not been removed. Note: Some customers mistake a midi disk for a Cd. Many PianoSoft products come in a jewel case that looks like a CD but is really a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk. All one time courtesy returns must first be approved by our customer service manager
For all other non returnable product, exceptions can be granted by the customer service manager for a one time courtesy exception for store credit only as long as the excluded item(s) are in new condition. Damaged items will not be accepted or an appropiate restocking fee will be assessed
Refunds or Store Credits only. Unfortunately due to the automation needed to handle a large volume we are not set up to do any kind of product exchange.
Shipping prices can only be refunded or adjusted if the product does not arrive in the time specified on priority UPS orders (UPS Orange, Blue or Red), or if you received a *different product than what you originally ordered. For instance, the inventory number does not match your original email receipt. We do not refund shipping charges if the customer decides to return the product(s) for any other reason except the above.
Please Note: Shipping times for expected delivery are based on 'Business' days which are Mon - Fri and do not include weekends or holidays.Return Instructions
If your order is a gift order and the gift recipient wishes to return or exchange it, they may do so for any reason within 30 days of receipt. It must be returned to us with the outer wrapping intact. Upon our receipt of the returned product, we'll be happy to give credit for the cost of the item(s) returned. The sender will only be responsible for the return shipping costs. Our Customer Service Department will be happy to help the gift recipient with a replacement order.Top
BackOrders / Permanently Out of Print
Unfortunately from time to time an item is unavailable. The publisher could be temporarily out of stock and in the process of being reprinted whereupon it automatically remains on backorder with the publisher until the customer chooses to cancel. Sometimes the publishers will decide for a variety of reasons to declare the item permanently out of production. You will be notified by email if either of these situations occurs.
For backorders you will be given the choice of waiting until it is available or to cancel. If you decide to wait, your credit card remains charged in full. This is to expedite the order to you as soon as it arrives back into the publishers stock as it will be shipped directly from the publisher to you. This is only true in the US and Canada. For international orders items must be received into our stock before it is forwarded on to the customer. No extra shipping charges are applied if you choose to wait.
Customers who do not respond to the notice are automatically put on the back order list. If you decide to cancel, your credit card will be refunded as soon as it can be processed by the accounts dept. Of course you can cancel at any time and request a refund up until the item has reached the shipping lanes. After that point it is too late to cancel.
Permanently out of print orders are automatically cancelled since these items can no longer be obtained from the publisher. Your card will be refunded. If you were waiting for a back order that was downgraded to POP, a full refund will be issued to your credit card.
PayPal orders can only be refunded withing 60 days of ordering. After that we can either send you the money back via PayPal (note they will charge you 2.7% for the transaction) or we can issue a store credit. If you cancel after the 60 days, please specify if you want the money sent back via a PayPal transaction (where you will be charged by PayPal) or accept a store credit for the full amount.
Mail orders can not be refunded via check. It's always wise to check with the order desk or customer service regardng the availability of the item before going through with a purchase using this payment method. Unfortunately this works well but not perfect as the item may be available when you order but back ordered or no longer in prnt by the time we receive the actual order and payment. Canceled backorders or permanently out of print orders are given store credit only. No refunds. However we will try to stop the check from going to the bank if we possibly can but checks are deposited on a daily basis therefore it's not always possible to do.Top

Approximate time of order, your name and address and anything else that will help us find your order. In most cases where an email receipt has not been received it is because the customer entered it incorrectly. Other reasons can be that the mail server is temporarily offline due to maintenence therefore not functional at the time or your mail box is full (common to hotmail). Also you or your Internet Service Provider may be using mail spam filters which are blocking our emails. Be sure to add our domain stagepass.com to any whitelist before ordering.
Having your proper email is crucial so that we may contact you regarding your order espcially in the case of back orders or if the item has gone out of print and no longer available. Of course you would want to know this as soon as possible. Please remember, we do not share your email nor will you suddenly start receiving newsletters or spam from us. We don't like spam either so it's a policy not to spam our customers.
Another reason for an accurate email is that your credit card order may be 'declined' by the order desk if it comes back as 'undelieverable'.Top
Our of print items
When an item goes out of print it is extremely unlikely that you will find it at any retailer. This is especially true if the item had been out of print for quite some time. In those cases your only hope would be a site that specializes in vintage out of print sheet music or a private sale from a collector.
Note: We never send file attachments for any reason
There are several computer viruses/worms in circulation these days that spoof e-mail addresses. By spoofing, we mean that a user receives e-mail that looks like it comes from one person when it was actually sent by someone else. The most recent versions of some viruses may also mention Stagepass.com in the body of the message. For instance, we have become aware of an email which claims to be from our support staff. This one in particular is being investigated by the FBI & other law enforcement agencies to establish the source of this threat.
The email reads:
Dear user firstname.lastname@example.org, the administration of stagepass.com would like to inform you
We have found that your e-mail account has been used to send a huge amount of spam during the last week. If you opened one of these attachments then it's probable that your computer had been compromised and now contains a trojan proxy server.
Please follow instructions in order to keep your computer safe.
Have a nice day,
This email did not originate from us and you should not follow the instructions or open any attachments! As stated above, this one is being investigated as it looks like a direct attack on our business.
All incoming and outgoing emails from Stagepass.com go through several virus filters to ensure that infected machines can not compromise our security systems
Because Stagepass.com is so popular, many of our e-mail addresses are in wide circulation in people's address books. Viruses that use e-mail spoofing take a random name from somewhere on the infected person's hard drive and mail themselves out as if they were from that randomly chosen address. More recently, they have also been able to generate random addresses that don't really exist. Because of this many of our email addresses that were once posted on our site (before we began using forms) have been discontinued due to spam and virus attacks.
Unfortunately, the spoofed address in the From: field sometimes makes a virus look like it's from a Stagepass.com address. Please know that we never send file attachments for any reason.
If you receive a message with a file attachment that looks like it's from us, don't open it. It's probably a virus.
There are several steps you should take to prevent trouble with viruses in general:
1. Use antivirus software. You can buy it off the shelf, online, or often through your internet service provider (ISP).
2. Update your virus definitions regularly. There are new viruses being created every day, so make sure to use software that is updated regularly. Learn how to update your software automatically at regular intervals (at least weekly).
3. Don't open any attachments, unless you know that they are coming in advance. Even if you know the person in the from field of the message, don't trust the message if it comes with a short, vague, or odd-sounding message like for your review, or an attachment that ends in .exe, .pif, or .zip. Even if you are sure the person is who they say they are, attachments from their computer can be dangerous simply because they could be unknowingly infected and ready to pass that on to you. By the way our incoming email system does not accept any emails that contain executable attachments.
Viruses are a costly nuisance for everyone, but if we all take the above precautions, we can help to minimize their spread to friends and colleagues.
If you have any questions or comments, or anything that help our ongoing investigation, please contact us.Top

Chorals / Musicals
Our Choral Page can help with the abreviated terms and tips on how to buy choral and musicals.
Chorals are not sold in packages but as individual items. For first time buyers of Choral / Musicals, please be aware that the vast majority are sold as individual pieces and are not 'packaged' except for a few of the few titles titles such as songkits etc.
Most teachers buy the Teacher's Edition or Director's Manual, Singers 5 pak and/or REPRO PAK and accompaniment ShowTrax / ChoirTrax Cd or Cassette.
Please Note: Popular Christmas / Holiday titles are usually sold out by October.
All descriptions are provided by the publisher and they are generic in nature, meaning that they all say the same thing. Some people have confused the word 'Available' to mean 'Included'. Also, they all list the available parts but some of the titles are being discontinued so be sure that the parts you want are there. If you search and don't see them, they are probably out of print but it doesn't hurt to send us an email to ask. These generic descriptions are being re-written by the publisher but at this time we haven't been told when this will be accomplished.
Some of our customer's also have objected to the price of some of the choral cd's (ShowTrax and ChoirTrax). For the explanation we went again to the publishers. Here's what we were told.
Performance Cd's have a lot of costs connected to them. An arranger has to be paid to score the song, a band and in some cases an entire orchestra is hired to perform it, the studio time involved, all this factored in with the fact that very few are sold (in comparison let's say a normal music CD) leads to the higher cost.
Also note there are return restrictions on many choral products especially ShowTrax Cd's. Please see our Return Policy & Procedure section for more details.
If you feel that more explanation is needed, contact our Customer Service dept. We'd be glad to help you find the right choral for your group.
