Why I am selling this item:
I need the cash.
Payment must be made within 7 calendar days of the auction closure. Please do not bid, if you cannot honor this eBay rule.
I accept: PayPal*
*Please note: As of 1/15/09 PayPal/eBay no longer allow payment via $ orders, bank checks, or direct credit card transactions, and has threatened to ban/boot any/all seller(s) whom dare to mention a payment method which even begins to suggest that PayPal/eBay will not get their full (& sizable) percentage/cut of the proceeds.Therefore, if you end up the winning bidder of this auction, and would like to discuss/express your frustration/anger regarding this new policy with me (i.e: you would have liked to pay for your winning bid for the auction with a $ order, but are no longer allowed to do so, due to eBay/PayPal rules/regulations), then please contact me after the closure of the auction to discuss this matter in more detail (wink, wink !!!).
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BIDDING ON THIS AUCTION, AND INTEND TO PAY FOR THE ITEM VIA PAYPAL:
1 OF THE FOLLOWING 2 CONDITIONS/CRITERIUM MUST BE MET (both are not required, just one or the other). You must either:
A) Have a minimum of 10 eBay feedbacks, with 98% or higher being of the "positive" variety
B) Have your shipping address confirmed/verified with PayPal.
If you do not have the required eBay feedback #'s, and currently do not have your ship-to-address confirmed/verified with PayPal, you are still welcome to bid on my item, as long as you are aware, that you must not only make your payment for the item in a prompt manner, but also must have your ship-to-address confirmed/verified with PayPal, within 7 calendar days of auction closure date, so I can ship your item out to you without delay.
I ship insured UPS Ground to the lower 48 States for a flat fee. Please see below for the exact S&H fee that is applicable to this item*
On most items, I also ship to Canada via insured USPS Priority or Express Mail International service. Please see below for the exact S&H fee which would be assessed to ship this item to winning bidders/buyers located in Canada*
On most items, I also ship to Western Europe, Australia and Japan, via insured USPS Priority or Global Express Mail International Services. Please see below for the exact S&H fee which will be assessed, & carrier which will be utilized, if this item were to be shipped to your location/country*
For S&H quote to Hawaii or Alaska, please inquire before the closure of auction*
*Insurance (for the full value of the item) will be included on all packages/items, irrespective of your location/country, shipping carrier or service utilized, S&H fee assessed (or lack thereof), etc.
Local pickup in Seattle (Capital Hill neighborhood) with $0 S&H fees (of course) is perfectly acceptable to me. Please contact me (after the closure of auction, naturally) to arrange pick up of your item (in person).*
*Please note: If you wish to pick up an item in person, then payment must be made either:

This item is guaranteed to be as described or I will refund your purchase price in full. You must e-mail me to request return authorization within 14 days of receipt of goods. If return authorization is given, buyer must then return the item promptly and at their own expense. Buyer may return the merchandise via the carrier of their choice. But, please package returned item extremely well (i.e. - I would recommend double boxing expensive electronics or computers), and I highly advise buying insurance, as I will only refund/credit you in full upon receipt of the returned merchandise in the exact same condition as when it departed my possession.
Note to Buyers about Feedback & Detailed Seller Star Ratings:
Although we strive for 100% accuracy in our listings, and 100% satisfaction for our customers in every way, sometimes (like anybody) we fall short of our goals. We are a small, family operation; we stand behind our word, and the item as it is represented to you in this listing, just as we would if you were purchasing the item in our living room. If for some reason, you are not satisfied with the item, or the service that we are providing, we ask that you give us the opportunity to resolve whatever issues you are experiencing with your purchase before you open a claim or leave feedback. We strive for 5-star service in all areas, all the time, and while we are not perfect, we are honest; our integrity is meaningful to us, and we value our customers in a way that seems to be becoming more & more rare in todays world. What this means is that, when issues do arise, we go above & beyond to resolve them quickly & fairly. However, what you may not know is that as many as 4 low DRS ratings (thats below 3 stars) in any one category in the space of a year (even from overall satisfied customers who have left positive feedback) can trigger a series of censures against a seller from eBay, which can quickly put an honest small business OUT of business. That's right, a seller with 100% feedback (who had 4 basically satisfied customers who’s experiences were less than perfect in some way, leave low DRS ratings in the any category) can be punished by eBay holding funds, for up to 3 days after the item is delivered (that’s right, the seller pays for S&H out of pocket, and waits to for eBay to release the payment for the items for up to a month in the case of international transactions), or even until AFTER a buyer leaves feedback! We all know what the float is, and who exactly is benefiting from these policies; not the buyer, it’s eBay who benefits, by making millions on the float!)! Penalties like this can quickly fold a Mom & Pop business. So, if we have fallen short, please give us the opportunity to change your mind about your purchasing experience before you leave feedback, rate us, or open a dispute in the resolution center.
