Q: I can’t find my receipt.  Could you send me a new one?

A: Of course!  However, it may already be in your inbox.  To be sure, check your inbox (or junk folder) for an email from Children’s Ministry Deals.  If you have a Gmail account you will want to check your “Promotions Folder.”  If you still don’t see it, just fill out the contact form at the top of this page and we will send a shiny new copy of your receipt.

Q: Can I use your curriculum on an iPad or iPhone?

A:  All of our curriculum comes as a .zip file. iPads and iPhones cannot open .zip files so you will need to open the files on a desktop or laptop computer. After the files have been unzipped however, they are in PDF format so you can then transfer them to your iPad and open them using your preferred app for viewing PDF files.

Q: How do I create an account?

A: You can use this page to create an account. An account will securely store all of your shipping/billing information so you will not have to type it in each time you complete a transaction.

Q: How do I recover a lost password for my account?

A: To retrieve a lost password, use our account login page and select "Forgot Your Password?".   Then enter the email address associated with your CMD account and you will receive an email with your new password.

Q: Do you have sample lessons I can view?

A: Yes!  We have a HUGE collection of sample lessons you can download for free.

Q: What can I do if my credit card is being declined?

A: Confirm that the address, specifically the zip code, that is associated with the credit card is correct.  If verifying the address does not work, try using a different browser like FireFox or Internet Explorer.  Google Chrome tends to have more issues processing credit card payments.  

Q: Can I pay over the phone?

A: Unfortunately we don’t take payments over the phone.  You can pay online using our secure checkout using a credit or debit card.

Q: How do I use my discount code?

A: Just enter your code in the "Discounts" box during checkout and hit the “Apply” button.  You’ll see the price change to reflect your coupon.  If the price doesn't change then the code hasn't been applied.
