    Over the years I've purchased a lot of music only to find that some publishers grading system differs more than others. Many times I cannot look at the music until it arrives at my home. Is there a way I can determine the difficulty level before hand, so I can avoid having to ship unwanted music back?

    There is a grading system, but it isn't always effective. What is difficult for you might not be for others, and visa versa. Many online retailers offer a preview page or two. Probably best to buy above your skill level, that should save sending it back. Even if you can't play it the day you get it, you'll grow into it.
