Q: Will sales tax be applied to my order?
A: Access Securepak® will not include sales tax in the selling prices. Sales tax needs to be calculated for all items. The sales tax rate is based on the inmate’s facility location at the time of order entry, not at the time of receipt. Refer to the tax table for the correct tax rate.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: PAYMENT: We accept credit/debit cards (VISA, MasterCard, or Discover logos), prepaid credit cards (that have a verifiable United States address), cashier’s check, institutional check, or money order. When paying by credit card be sure to include the card number, expiration date, card member’s name, CCV 3 digit number on the back of the card, card member’s phone number, and billing address. Inmates may purchase packages for themselves and/or SCDC incarcerated immediate family members, by completing SCDC Form 15-1, “Cooper Trust Fund Withdrawal” and attaching it to the completed Access Securepak® order form. Requests must be submitted to the Postal Director by Thursday, April 13, 2023 to allow time for institutional check processing. We do not accept prepaid credit cards that lack the ability to assign a valid United States address to the cardholder.

Q: How do I report a discrepancy with the order (item missing, wrong product, etc)?
A: The inmate will be given an opportunity to check contents of package in the presence of an employee from the institution. If there is an issue with the order, the employee will verify it and send the paperwork to Access. All discrepancies must be reported from the institution. We cannot honor any discrepancies reported from family members or friends of the inmate.

Q: What happens if the person I am sending my order to changes custody level and is no longer allowed a package?
A: If you place an order for an inmate and their custody level changes or they are moved to a facility other than SCDC while the order is being processed or shipped, the order will be returned to us. Once we receive the order back from the institution we will issue a refund to the sender of the package. There are no restocking fees.

Q: What happens if the inmate is relocated to another SCDC institution?
A: If you place an order for an inmate and they are moved to another SCDC institution, the package will be forwarded to the new institution on the next available SCDC Canteen truck.
