PRIMA MUSIC POLICIES, TERMS & CONDITIONS
Prima Music Policies
Attaining new levels of membership at Prima Music is based on the total amount you have spent with us since you joined. Unlike other programs that require you to purchase a certain amount within a short period of time, your purchase credits will never expire at Prima Music as long as your remain an active customer. We want you as a customer for life. Once you qualify for a new membership level, you will immediately begin to receive the increased discount for that level. You will remain at that level forever, as long as you make at least one purchase of any value at Prima Music during the following year. This is a rolling 12-month period. So, once you make a future purchase, you will then have another 12-months to make a purchase in order to maintain your current membership level.
Member discounts are not additive to previous discounts applied to an item. If an item is already discounted above your member discount, you will receive the highest discount. Items that are previously discounted may include sale, clearance, overstock items, or any publisher established discounts, such as Value Packs. Our system will select the highest discount for you.
Membership previliges at Prima Music are based on maintaining good account standing. Any account that is no longer in good standing may lose membership previliges, including membership discount, at the sole discretion of Prima Music. The following actions may cause the suspension or deletion of your account:
Free Shipping Program
Prima Music is the only music store that ships every order for free. There is no minimum purchase required to qualify for free shipping and, unlike other music stores, our free shipping offer is good every day of the year! Buy one piece of sheet music, or a box full, and the shipping is on us. Prima Music's free shipping offer applies to the first shipment in the order via U.S. Postal Service delivery to United States and APO addresses. Other shipping options are available for a fee. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Please note: Free shipping offer does not apply to international or wholesale orders. Prima Music retains the right to change or discontinue the free shipping program at any time, at its sole discretion.
In the event that your order has both IN STOCK and SPECIAL ORDER items, you will have the opportunity to split your order into multiple shipments. Split shipments will incur additional shipping costs. It you select Prima Music's free shipping offer, we will cover the cost of the first shipment using our Standard shipping method. You will be charged for any additional shipments.
Prima Music provides a variety of additional shipping options to meet your needs. You may choose from Next Day Air*, 2nd Day Air, 3-Day Select, Ground, or USPS Priority Mail. Costs for each available option will be calculated based on the total weight of your order and the shipping destination. You will be shown the additional costs for each of these shipping methods at checkout, and you may select the delivery method which meets your needs. All shipping costs are in US dollars. Any order with a total item cost under $30 will incur a $2.99 handling fee.
Our delivery options estimate the time it will take for your order to reach you after it has left our warehouse.
Prima Music has four domestic shipping zones:
Important Shipping Information
Payment is due in full at the time of the completion of your order at the Prima Music website. By submitting your order, you authorize us to charge your credit card or withdraw funds from your PayPal account for the full amount of the order. Any adjustments to an order that results in the order total being less than the original amount will result in a credit to your account. Account credits will be refunded via the same method used to pay for the order. In certain circumstances, and at the sole discretion of Prima Music, credits may be refunded via a credit certificate (gift certificate) for use on a future order at the Prima Music website. Any adjustments to an order that results in the order total being greater than the original amount will result in a reference transaction submitted against the original payment method. By submitting your order, you authorize us to submit one or more reference transactions for the amount that the final order total is greater than the original amount paid.
All international and first time orders over $200 require written or verbal verification. We do this to protect both our customers and ourselves from potential fraud. Once your order is received and reviewed, we will contact you via telephone or email to verify your order. In the event that verification cannot be obtained within one week, the order will be deleted.
In the event that any credit card or PayPal charge is reversed by contacting the credit card company or PayPal without first contacting us for resolution, called a 'chargeback', we will assess a $20 fee against your account. Your account privileges, including your membership discount and the ability to place orders at our site will be discontinued until this fee is paid. This fee will apply regardless of the reason of the chargeback.
Sales tax is only required for orders shipping to addresses in the State of Georgia where we have or may have nexus for state tax purposes under applicable laws. On occasion, Prima Music will offer No Sales Tax shopping at our website. During these promotions, Prima Music will pay the sales tax in the states where a nexus exists. We will not be responsible for sales and use tax that is imposed on the individual by state or local taxing authorities where no nexus exists.
Price Match Promise
Prima Music will match any advertised price for identical items sold by an authorized music retailer. Simply notify us of the the advertised pricing and where you found it. We will gladly adjust the price. Prima Music's Price Match Promise does not include offers from music stores that include bundling of items, free items, pricing errors, mail-in offers, items that are advertised as limited-quantity, open-box, clearance, liquidation sales, refurbished/used items, Deal of the Day items, or any item not deemed to be comparable by Prima Music. The Price Match Promise does not include non-licensed retailers, such as eBay or Amazon third-party resellers. The item must be in-stock at the competitor's store at the time the offer is presented to Prima Music. Any quantity discounts will be honored for the same quantity only. For promotional discounts that apply to the entire order, or multiple items, Prima Music will match the final order total, inclusive of shipping, handling, tax, and other additional fees. The Price Match Promise does not include direct sales from music publishers, wholesalers, or their retail affiliates. Prima Music reserves the right to determine the applicability of the Price Match Promise on a case-by-case basis. The Price Match Promise is good for 10 days after purchase. Please note: Due to frequent pricing changes by publishers, manufacturers, and suppliers, Prima Music's Price Match Promise does not match the retail price listed at other authorized music retailers or the price printed on the item. Our Price Match Promise guarantees that our final item price, after member discount and any other applicable promotions, will be equal to or lower than any other retailer's final item price. At the sole discretion of Prima Music, shipping costs will be considered in our final determination of the applicability of the Price Match Promise.
The List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself or suggested by the brand or supplier. Due to frequent price increases by publishers and suppliers, the current Prima Music price may be higher than the price printed on the product. In addition, Prima Music's list price may be higher than the currently suggested retail price for certain publishers or suppliers. Prima Music's list price will prevail in any disagreement between the product's printed price or the suggested retail price and Prima Music list price.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. In the event that an item will cost us significantly more to purchase on your behalf than we charged for the item, we will contact you to determine how you would like for us to proceed with the order. In the event that you do not wish to pay any additional costs, the item will be removed from your order or the order will be deleted in its entirety.
You can expect your order to be processed within approximately 24-48 hours, provided the items are in stock and there are no problems with payment verification. Prima Music does not guarantee same day-shipping. Orders are not processed on weekends and holidays.
Receipts / Packing Slips
Because many of our customers purchase studio materials for their students, we do not include pricing information on the packing slip that accompanies each shipment. Order receipts, containing item pricing detail, can be printed from our website.

Clearance Center Purchases

We do not accept returns of any item purchased from our Clearance Center. Any item returned to us that was purchased in our Clearance Center will receive no credit.
