Read this BEFORE you bid…
Do not assume the E-bay postal calculator is right, and no not proceed to paying before we have discussed finalized postage costs!
Now as to that pesky topic of shipping! Comic books are relatively large and bulky in terms of moving things from one place to the other, especially as it pertains to crossing borders. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO PAY TO SHIP THE ITEM, DON’T BID ON IT. MY JOB IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A GOOD PRODUCT AT A REASONABLE PRICE, NOT TO EAT THE COST OF SHIPPING THE ITEM FROM ME TO YOU!
Now having said that, I will be reasonable. I want you to have an experience that makes you want to come back to me for more bidding! It is in my best interest that you feel you made out well in the exchange. If you want to know the real cost of sending an item from here to wherever you are, go to www.canadapost.ca and give it the information it wants. The package, if it is a single book is likely going to be 12 inches long, 9 wide, and about ¼ of an inch high. If you are on metric that is something like 30 cm by 23 cm by .5 cm. The trick is the weight, but for most orders all you would need to tell the site is less than 500 grams. The options are all there to see, insurance, air/surface, whatever option you want. Please add two dollars to whatever total you get from the site for my packing supplies and such.
Yes, I am absolutely willing to combine shipping, but remember if we get into shipping boxes and the like, those too are your responsibility, not mine.
Shipping ain’t cheap!
If we are talking about only one or two books, generally I can ship that package WITH NO INSURANCE to other parts of Canada for $7.99, to the continental United States for $9.99, and international surface (meaning it goes by ship, not by plane) for $11.99. If you want it faster it costs more. If you want insurance there may be more cost.
Be honest with yourself, when you add the cost (which I set as minimum bid fairly low), and then you add shipping, is it still cheaper than you would get it in a shop? I suspect the answer is yes… many of my buyers are getting the items they buy, especially if they purchase more than one auction, for less. Keep this in mind when deciding if I am “worth it”.
BOXED ORDERS: IF you order a lot of stuff, and by that I would say more than 8 books you are probably going to want a box, the smallest of which will fit close to 30 books and costs me $4 to buy. With this item though, comes the weight…30 books will weigh in, with bags and boards, at close to five pounds! Just for fun, on this package that means : International $45.74
United States $ 33.68
Canada $ 17.11
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1) WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Canada Post estimates are available. Delivery depends on your location, package size and weight, and the service method chosen. Contact me for details.
2) WHY IS SHIPPING SO EXPENSIVE?
The cost in checkout is based on the most economical Canadian postal service method.
It is for this one item only and the estimated size and weight of the wrapped package.
Cost includes postage or shipping fee, fuel surcharge, local taxes, packing materials, wrapping and delivery to Post Office.
FOR BEST SHIPPING VALUE, BID ON MORE THAN ONE AUCTION, AS THERE ARE SHIIPPING DISCOUNTS IF YOU WIN MORE THAN ONE COMIC AT THE SAME TIME!
3) HOW CAN I SAVE ON SHIPPING COSTS?
See my other items! Shipping multiple items at the same time will greatly reduce shipping costs per item!
4) CAN THE ITEM BE DECLARED A GIFT?
Sorry, no. I usually use PayPal/Canada Post to create a shipping/customs label, which includes description and value. Any duties, brokerage fees, local taxes or other fees must be paid by the Buyer. Please check your local regulations to avoid nasty surprises.
5) CAN I PICK IT UP?
Normally, no. The complications in coordinating local pick-ups are not worth the modest savings in shipping small items.

SOME FINAL TIPS:
(thanks to“eBay FOR DUMMIES”)
1) DON'T GET "SNIPED": Some bidders are surprised when they are suddenly outbid in the last minutes of an auction. This is called "sniping". Remember it is not the last bid that wins but the highest bid. By bidding the highest price that you would be willing to pay for an item, you do not automatically have to pay that price! Your bid will only be raised (by eBay, not me) according to eBay's rules, up to your maximum bid and no more. Check with eBay for more details on bidding rules. Entering your maximum amount early is the best way to avoid sniping that happens during the last minutes of auction.
2) BIDDING: Don’t round off your bids to the nearest familiar numbers, such as $3.00 or $21.50: instead, use “odd” values in your bid to increase your chances of winning! Bidding $3.07 or $21.53 could mean the difference in winning the item for only a few pennies more than the next highest bidder.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!
Bid Early, BID OFTEN!
GOOD LUCK and HAPPY BIDDING!
