HOWTO  order a real CBT Tape on 3480 cart

3480 tape cartridge

If you would like to receive a real but not reel Smile all you want we still don't ship 3420 tapes anymore:-) CBT Tape I would be glad to send you one.

Q. How do I go about doing this?

A. You need to send me a mailing address and I will send you a copy. If you plan on attending a SHARE conference in North America I usually bring LOTS of tapes and you can easily get one there.  Email me your information at sknutson@cbttape.org

Q. Is there a cost involved?  If there is how much is it?

A.  $10 in North America remit on receipt of the package which covers materials and shipping.  International mailing of tapes can be quite expensive and so it is $3 USD + exact postage and must be paid in advance.

Q. Is this enough? Can I help out by sending you a little extra money?

A. If you want to send more anything over costs I will put it into a fund used to pay the bills for the CBT Tape web site. The web site is supported entirely by several individuals who pay for it from their own pockets. Any help is always appreciated. 

Q. Can I donate on-line with a credit card

A. Yes  You can send me money directly using the free PayPal service at http://www.paypal.com .  I have found it to be quick and secure.   Send money to sknutson@cbttape.org when using PayPal.  PayPal now can be used from many countries outside North America. 

Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!  


Q. I live in another country than the United States can I pay you in my national currency?

A. I would prefer not.  Checks drawn on banks outside the US usually cost me more to cash (fee imposed by my bank) than they are worth.  Foreign currency is typically inconvenient to get converted to US dollars and most places I can do it charge a fee.  The bottom line is that I have to pay postage and buy supplies in US dollars.   We place trust in you mailing on request.  We ask that you make an effort to pay in US dollars or an International Postal Money Order.  Electronic payment by PayPal may be a good alternative.

Q. Can I get a Purchase Order/Invoice?

A. Not at this time.  If this is important to you please email me sknutson@cbttape.org and let me know.


Q. Is any money I send you tax deductible?

A. NO. The CBT Tape is not a charity or a business rather a loosely organized group of volunteers so any money you send ($5 or $500) is NOT deductible.


Q. How long would it take me to get this once I have ordered it?

A. In North America usually about a week.


Q. Do I need to provide my own tape?

A. No.  The CBT tape project currently has all the 3480 and 3490 media we expect to use for foreseeable future.
