    Default TDCJ Commissary

    My husband sent me a clipping about the New TDCJ Commissary to offer Online purchases for families and friend. It said that "This will be accessible through a link on the Texas.gov website." I have looked several time and can not find it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    It's actually 2019 but the ticker would only go to 2017.

    Patrick said it's been delayed because the units are having to stock up. Once we send the request, they HAVE to fill it within 72 hours so if they were understocked it'd create a lot of really pissed off loved ones! But he said that the commissary has to be stocked enough to fill our orders PLUS the inmates. He's sending me "The Echo" so I can read what they said about it. Once I get it, I'll post what it says.
    "Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough."

    I went to visit Jason, my Husband, this past Sunday and he says that some of the guys in his unit have already received commissary from their friends/family... Been looking today to try and find the link. I'll post again if I find anything new.

    Here you go folks... this is the link to the site you can purchase commissary for your inmate. Here are also the guidelines for purchasing.

    Welcome to eCommDirect – a direct purchase program for Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) offenders.

    eCommDirect lets friends and family of an offender incarcerated in a TDCJ facility purchase goods for the offender.

    How to Use eCommDirect
    Search for an offender using their Last Name and Offender ID
    Once the offender has been verified, you can:

    Purchase specific commissary items for the offender from TDCJ’s online catalog.
    Hours: eCommDirect is closed each night from 9 PM to 4 AM.

    Note: Friends and family may purchase each eligible offender up to $50.00 in goods per calendar quarter. Offenders are limited to one purchase per day. Calendar quarters are based on the following dates: January 1 – March 31; April 1 – June 30; July 1 – September 30 and October 1 – December 31.

    Information You Need
    Offender ID and Last Name
    Credit card (Visa or MasterCard)

    https://tdcj-ecommdirect.portal.texas.gov/

    Hope this helps...
