When can I start ordering online?

To sign up for the education discount program and start ordering online, just follow these two steps:

  1. Create a user account. If you already have an account with Kamehameha Publishing, you can skip this step. 
  2. Complete our registration form using your organizational address and email information. Nonprofit educational organizations will need to attach a copy of their IRS determination letter indicating tax-exempt status.

Once you’ve submitted the registration form and documentation, please allow 2–3 days to receive an email confirming that your account has been approved and activated. You can then make purchases online using your login credentials and receive the 60% education discount.

What forms of payment are accepted?
Schools and nonprofit organizations may pay with a purchase order or with a company-issued credit card. In the checkout section of our online store, you will be able to enter a PO number or credit card information for payment.

If I need an order filled right away, what is my best option?
Our order fulfillment partner, Five Star Transportation, will process the order within 3–5 business days. Express shipment options are available at a higher cost than our standard rates. Orders may also be picked up at Five Star’s warehouse in Kalaeloa on O‘ahu. For any orders requiring special handling, please contact before placing the order.

How are products shipped?
Orders are typically shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Additional expedited shipping options are also available at checkout through FedEx and UPS as well as via direct delivery by Five Star Transportation (on Oʻahu only).

When will I get my invoice for PO payment?
Invoice will be included in the package. If invoice is missing or needed right away, please email with your order number. Check payment should be made payable to “Five Star Transportation.” Remittance information is printed on the invoice.
