Welcome

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

eCommDirect lets friends and family make deposits into the account of an offender incarcerated in a TDCJ facility and purchase commissary goods. This secure service offers online convenience and greater control of what happens with the funds you provide.

How to Use eCommDirect

  • Search for an offender using their Last Name and Offender ID.

Note: You are not setting up an account with Texas.gov to make future purchases or deposits.

Once the offender has been verified, you may:

  • Purchase specific commissary items for the offender from TDCJ’s online catalog (delivered to the offender within 3 business days after TDCJ receives the order)
  • Make a deposit into their Trust Fund account (deposited into offender’s account within two business days after TDCJ receives the order)

You are not required to make a purchase and a deposit at the same time.

Hours: eCommDirect Store is closed weeknights from 8:30 PM CST to 4:00 AM CST.

Note: Friends and family may purchase each eligible offender up to $50.00 in goods per calendar quarter. Offenders may receive a maximum of one online 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.

Offender Trust Fund deposits may be made at any time with a limit of $300.00 per deposit transaction.
