7. Why does your website address have a “.us” extension?

8. Are there extra shipping charges for International orders?
Answer: Yes. Click on our “Order Now” button on the home page, and then select the “International Orders” link to calculate your International shipping fees.
9. Does the Making Money Work software work on Apple computers?
Answer: Yes and No. Yes if you have purchased and installed the “Microsoft Office For The Macintosh” software program for your Apple. If your Apple version removes Visual Basic macros, the powerful features in our calculators will not work. We use Visual Basic macros to save the user steps, time, and work when using our calculators. For example, Mac 2008 states "This file contains Visual Basic macros. Visual Basic macros do not work in Office 2008 for Mac." In this case, we do not recommend our calculators for Mac. You can tell whether your Mac will operate correctly with our calculators by downloading the "SS10 Calculator-Non Cash Charitable Contributions" from the www.MakingMoneyWork.us homepage--if that calculator works properly, then all of our calculators will work on your Mac system.
