Winner's items are shipped the same day as payment is received (excluding Saturday/Sunday and payments received after 3 PM eastern time.).
Shipping costs for all orders can be determined by the shipping calculator in this auction. All orders are shipped via UPS for domestic and high value international shipments. Express mail International may be used for items under $150 US in value. PayPal requires us to use shippers that provide on line tracking and delivery confirmation and presently this information is not reliably available from the U.S. Postal service except for Express Mail. Domestic UPS is cost competitive with USPS when the necessary extra services are added and the service level is both high and reliable. We will only ship USPS in unusual circumstances.
We do not mark up shipping costs and pass thru the same rate that UPS would charge if you brought the package to them directly. Most items do not incur a handling charge but particularly valuable/delicate items may require extraordinary cost and the necessity of a handling charge, which will be noted in the auction.
Attention Canadian Buyers: We want your business and to be able to ship to you in a manner that offers reasonable cost, timely delivery, insurance and on line tracking. We have found that the postal service does not satisify these criteria and up to now UPS brokerage fees have been costly. Now with an arrangment between the Online Selling Store and UPS we are able to offer discounted brokerage charges for shipments to Canada valued at $200 or less. For these items the brokerage charge will be $10 for Standard (surface) to Canada shipping. This provides a $35 savings over traditional UPS Canadian brokerage charges. Combining the discounted brokerage charges with the economy of the Standard to Canada rate, total costs for a shipment to Canada is very competitive, if not cheaper, than USPS Express Mail in most situations. For Canadian customers, you can calculate your total costs by taking the item cost + 5% GST - Canadian Good and Services Tax -(on Made in USA items, imports are higher) + $10 brokerage fee +shipping charges from the shipping calculator above = your total item cost delivered. Note again that items made outside the USA have an increased duty.
International Buyers: Be aware of the import duties and taxes you may be subject to in your country. Our shipping rate does not include them. Allow extra time for international shipments. The law prohibits us from declaring purchased items as gifts to evade import duties, please do not ask us to do so, we cannot.
We are very happy to combine shipping of items from multiple auctions wherever possible to reduce your shipping costs If you purchase multiple items it is a good idea to alert us to that via email so we are sure to combine for shipping..
Seller is not responsible for any item during shipping and we include insurance on all shipments regardless of value.
Any item over $250 will be shipped with a required Signature Confirmation.
