Buyer pays postage. Combine orders and save on postage. Postages are determined in Canadian dollars and then converted into U.S. dollars. The exchange rate currently is about 5% in favour of the U.S. dollar. That means if the postage is $1.00 CAN; you will pay 95 cents U.S. I do everything I can to save my customers every cent I can. I credit you with the exchange rate. IF THE CANADIAN DOLLAR BECOMES WORTH MORE THAN THE U.S. DOLLAR, I WILL NEVER EVER PENALIZE YOU. I WILL ACCEPT U.S. DOLLARS AT PAR!!! I will wait until you are done bidding so combine purchases to save on postage, plus; I allow personal pickup. See my other auctions for more interesting items. As of October 20th, ebay only allows for paypal payments. I do accept paypal.
In a recent August 20, 2008 workshop, an ebay customer service rep stated the following:
While we believe buyers will have a more secure experience with the approved electronic payments, we understand sellers have long standing trusted relationships with their buyers. If your buyer does contact you asking to send a paper payment, you may still provide that option.
Please email if any questions.
PLEASE READ AND CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING WHEN YOU RATE ME ON THE DETAILED SELLER RATINGS (DSR'S) CONCERNING THE SHIPPING TIMES, POSTAGE COSTS, ETC. (WHICH IS THE FOURTH... OR LAST... DSR YOU WILL RATE ME FOR). IF YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH OUR TRANSACTION, I WOULD CERTAINLY APPRECIATE A RATING OF 5 WHEN YOU RATE ME ON THE FOUR DETAILED SELLER RATINGS, ESPECIALLY ON THE "SHIPPING AND HANDLING CHARGES" RATING .
A NOTE TO FEEDBACK:
eBay has now implemented a 5-Star rating system. When rating me for “shipping time”, please keep in mind that this refers to how quickly the seller ships after receiving payment (I ship within 24 hours) and NOT how long the package takes to arrive to you, because, as the seller, I have absolutely no control over Canada Post’s delivery times nor the delivery times of your international postal system (if the item is shipped outside of Canada). And; I charge postage AT COST (what the post office charges me). No packing or handling fees. And Canadian postal rates are higher than the U.S. rates. I do everything I can to minimize your postal costs (combine orders, waiting until additional auctions end, allowing for personal pickup, etc.).
A NOTE TO DELIVERY TIMES: I usually ship with our Canadian postal system (CANADA POST) unless the buyer requests otherwise. Delivery for Canada post items via regular (SURFACE) mail to the farther reaches of the United States can take up to 2 weeks for delivery. Airmail delivery will usually take less time than that. International delivery (other than to the United States) goes via surface (SEA) mail...which can take up to 3 MONTHS for delivery. International airmail usually takes no more than 2 weeks for delivery. Finally; your parcel may be held up in your country's customs service. Please understand that I MUST declare the exact contents of your parcel and the price it sold for.
Also; I DO NOT wait for cheques to clear and leave feedback IMMEDIATELY when payment arrives. If you are unsatisfied for ANY reason, PLEASE contact me BEFORE even thinking about leaving a NEUTRAL or a NEGATIVE feedback. If you are satisfied, a positive feedback is welcomed.
