TDCJ eCommDirect
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:42:52 pm »
The TDCJ Commissary and Trust Fund Department has initiated an on-line program where friends and family may purchase up to $50 of commissary items every calendar quarter for eligible offenders. The items available for purchase include up to 100 of the top selling items which include snacks, hygiene products, correspondence supplies as well as some new packaged items. The on-line amount purchased will not affect the amount that offenders may spend on commissary items from funds deposited in their inmate trust fund account. In addition to offenders on commissary restriction, offenders in General Population and State Jail levels 4 and 5, Protective Custody levels 5 and 6 and Administrative Segregation levels 2 and 3, are not eligible to receive commissary purchases through this program.

eCommDirect on-line program may be used exclusively for your needs. You are not setting up an account with Texas.gov to make future purchases or deposits. Each transaction will be unique to that purchase and/or deposit. You may choose to make an on-line merchandise purchase or an on-line deposit to an offender’s inmate trust fund account or both. The on-line merchandise purchase will be delivered to the offender within 3 business days from when TDCJ receives the purchase transaction details from Texas.gov. The on-line deposit to an offender’s inmate trust fund account will be transferred to the offender’s inmate trust fund account on the next business day after TDCJ receives the deposit transaction details from Texas.gov. On-line purchases are subject to substitution, if the item is unavailable at the time of distribution.
