We accept online payments through our secure payment gateway powered by PayPal. Customers may pay with their PayPal account or with credit or debit cards using the gateway. We also accept mail order payments. For complete mail order instructions Download the Mail Order Form
Credit and Debit Cards: To use a credit card through our secure payment gateway: enter the CAPTCHA letters in the field below where it says "You have selected PayPal as your payment provider" and click <Enter>. In the example below you would enter A8A858 (your letters will be different) and click enter. The "Payment Provider" means they are the secure gateway through which your payment will be processed.
CAPTCHA - a type of challenge-response test used to ensure that the response is generated by a human being. A common type of CAPTCHA requires the user to type letters and/or digits from a distorted image that appears on the screen. Such tests are used to prevent unwanted internet bots from accessing websites, since a normal human can easily read a CAPTCHA, while the bot cannot process the image letters.
After answering the CAPTCHA challenge and pressing <ENTER> a payment box opens. When the payment box opens look for the "Don't have a PayPal account" and select that link to proceed with payment. Proceed with your payment information as instructed and place order.
Still don't want to use the PayPal gateway? Check out our publications at Amazon.com -- At Amazon you will enjoy the same prices, fast shipping, confidence of a trusted retailer and additional check-out and payment options.

International Shipping LivingAfterWLS General Store no longer accepts International Orders because of multiple failures by the United States Post Office to support shipping and tracking of orders outside the United States. Kaye Bailey and LivingAfterWLS regret this change in policy as we treasure our International Neighbors. However, as a small business we cannot continue to absorb the cost of lost or missing orders without getting the support we need from the Post Office to ensure safe and prompt delivery of packages.
Mail Order Information: To take advantage of frequently offered coupons via postal mail order please download order form, complete your order, enter coupon code and deduct coupon amount from total, mail with payment enclosed (US Check or Money Order) to address indicated on form prior to the expiration date of the coupon code. Mail orders accepted for US addresses only.

Telephone Orders: For our customer's protection and our protection as well, we never take payment information (debit or credit card numbers) over the telephone because there is no technology to encrypt a spoken number. Always exercise extreme caution when providing your payment information over the telephone to any place of business. Please order using our secure online payment process or prepare your order and payment following the mail order procedure. Thank you.

What is the advantage of purchasing from the LivingAfterWLS Store vs. Amazon? The LivingAfterWLS General Store is the premier retailer of Kaye Bailey's books and all LivingAfterWLS publications. At LivingAfterWLS we enjoy a very close association with our customers -- our Neighbors -- and believe the personal care we give in preparing and packaging your order is a favorable step in your WLS empowerment. Upon receiving your package you will find carefully packaged merchandise, little extras like our "Goody Bag" and a hand-stamped packing slip with loyal customer coupon attached. In a world of automation and impersonalization we take great pride in giving a little bit of ourselves with each package we send. You are more than a customer to us: You are our Neighbor and partner in the quest for lifelong weight management with surgery. Thank you for allowing us the joy of serving you. For prompt assistance email email@example.com or leave a message at 307-787-3638.
What is the advantage of purchasing from Amazon vs. LivingAfterWLS Store? Beginning September 1, 2013 LivingAfterWLS is pleased to announce our affiliation with Amazon.com. Customers and fans of LivingAfterWLS are now able to purchase our publications from Amazon. This may be a preferred option if you have an established account with Amazon, an Amazon gift card, or prefer not to use the PayPal gateway for payment in the LAWLS Store. Amazon "Super Saver" shipping may apply to orders meeting minimum purchase requirements. Publications purchased from Amazon are shipped quickly via the US Post Office. Due to the terms of our affiliation Amazon orders will not include the personalized complimentary gifts our customers enjoy when ordering from the LivingAfterWLS store. LivingAfterWLS General Store coupons may not be applied to Amazon orders. Non-published products in the LivingAfterWLS Store are not available through our Amazon affiliation, nor are the economical book bundles. International shipping is not available for Amazon print publication orders.
Are the LivingAfterWLS books in ebook format? At this time our publications are in ebook development and we anticipate introducing a full line of ebook products in the third quarter of 2013. Please watch our email newsletters for updates on this exciting product line.
Do you give "freebies" to support groups? We receive many requests (some not legitimate) for donations and freebies for support groups. We are a small business with very limited resources but we are happy to review requests on a case-by-case basis. Please email us: "Support Group Donation Request" to petition us with your request. Proof of support group will be required for all donations.
I cannot find the You Have Arrived Seasoning Blends. Our You Have Arrived Seasoning Blends have been a customer favorite since 2008. Unfortunately we have temporarily discontinued the blends as of October 1, 2011 due to the current economic downturn. We have a strict freshness protocol and due to intermittent orders we struggled to predict and keep an adequate inventory of Seasoning Blends on hand without losing too many to expired freshness. Like everyone right now we are managing our resources closely and sometimes that means making a tough decision. We hope conditions allow us to bring these terrific and healthful blends back into production soon. Please watch your emails for updates.
