Can I have my textbooks billed to my student account?
No, OU does not allow students to charge textbooks to their bursar account. 
Why do I need to hold a debit/credit card on file for a rental?
The OU Bookstore requires a debit/credit card to be held on file in case the rental is not returned. The card will be charged to buyout the textbook(s). 
After placing an order I received an order confirmation, does that mean my payment method has been charged?
No, the order confirmation email is only to confirm your and payment method information has been received. Once your order is fulfilled, your payment method on file will be charged, and you will receive a second email confirming your order has shipped or is ready-to-pickup.
After I enter my credit card information, the website says "Billing system error." How do I fix this?
Please verify the credit/debit card number is correct. If it's incorrect, please re-enter your card number. If the card number is correct, please verify that the billing address is the address on file with your bank/financial institution. If it's incorrect, please re-enter the correct billing address.
