Is it safe ordering online? Therapy Shoppe uses a password protection system and high-level Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when processing purchases on our website. SSL is the industry standard for creating a secure, encrypted link between a web server and a browser, which ensures safe passage of sensitive, confidential information, such as credit card numbers. Banks, e-commerce websites, etc. use SSL as a means to protect online transactions with their customers. Once a secure connection is established, SSL encrypts information sent from your browser to the web server.

Creating an Account
Do I have to create an account to order from your website? No, you are not required to set up an account to shop on our website. If you would prefer not to establish an account, simply begin shopping and adding products to your cart. You will be given the option to checkout without an account when you go to checkout. Please know we do not retain any of your credit card information once your order has been processed.
What are the benefits of creating an account? Every member that creates an account with us and logs in is given a "Members Cart." This allows you to add products to your shopping cart at your convenience and come back at a later time, or even another day to checkout. All of the products you've added to your cart will remain until you checkout or remove them yourself. If you add products to your shopping cart without logging in and then decide to log in to your online "Members Cart," the contents of your cart will merge automatically with your "Members Cart" contents.
When you have an account with us you can create an endless number of "wishlists!" Therapists can create a separate wishlist for all the children on their caseload, which can then be forwarded to their parents, teachers, or relatives. Teachers can create wishlists of beneficial products for the children in their classroom which can then be sent to their parents. Children can create a birthday or holiday gift wishlist of all their favorite products... the possibilities are sky high with our exciting new "Wishlist" feature!
Being able to view all of your past orders is another great benefit of creating an account! This makes the reordering process way easier and quicker by allowing you to double-check and easily click on products you've ordered in the past. This time-saving feature makes re-ordering a breeze.
You'll also have your own personal address book when you create an account. This lets you quickly and easily have products sent to addresses other than your own. Once you've entered an address you'll never have to look it up again!
