SHIPPING METHODS: We use USPS for most shipments. In some cases we may use UPS instead, especially if the package is large or oversized, so don't take the shipping method listed as gospel - your purchase could be sent by either carrier, but the majority go by USPS.
SHIPPING FEES: We try hard to only charge actual cost + a fee of no more than $2.00 to cover materials, time, & other costs associated with each sale. On most items, we undercharge.
COMBINING SHIPPING: We are happy to do this for all customers, unless specifically stated in the listing, or if the items cannot be shipped together (for instance it's hard to send posters and records in the same package without damaging them, you get the drift). Please request a total through the eBay system and we will do our best to reduce shipping for multiple items. NOTE THAT COMBINING SHIPPING DOES NOT ALWAYS REDUCE S&H COSTS, BUT IT WILL NEVER INCREASE YOUR S&H COST.
WE ARE REASONABLE PEOPLE: If there’s a problem with your purchase, please contact us and let us know. As buyers too, we always want to provide you with a great buying experience!
OFFERS: Unless you see the "Make Offer" button on our listings, we are not interested in offers. If you must, please make it reasonable. Asking for 50% off won’t work. If you can find it for less, please, buy it there rather than haggle with us. Thank you in advance!
UNPAID WINNINGS: There seems to be a recent epidemic of dim-witted folks who don't understand the basics of eBay. Here we go: you buy, you pay, we ship (or you pick up in the rare case of pick-up only items), you get the merchandise. If payment is not made in the time specified, we will issue an unpaid item notice to eBay and you'll get a strike. The item will be re-listed and you'll be blocked from our auctions. We have absolutely zero interest in ANY excuses. If there is a problem with your PayPal account, don't buy until it's resolved. If you are expecting money from somewhere else to cover your purchase, don't buy until you have that money in your account. Your Grandmother explodes unexpectedly? She'd want you to honor your commitments. Don't let Grandma down! You let your monkey play online and he bought a bunch of stuff using your account? Tough luck! Next time, apply the lesson you've learned: be responsible and watch your monkey. In the meantime, it's your account & your responsibility - pay up! NO EXCEPTIONS!!
INFO FOR US BUYERS ONLY
PAYMENT TIMELINE FOR US BUYERS: Since we only accept PayPal, there's no reason that payment can't be made at the moment of purchase. We allow a 48 hour period to make a payment from the end of the auction (or, in the case of multiple purchases, 48 hours after you get an invoice with combined shipping, if shipping can be combined).
INFO FOR FOREIGN (EX-USA) BUYERS
SHIPPING METHODS & COSTS: Items valued at $24.99 or
more must ship by Priority Mail or better. Priority is usually faster than 1st Class and
includes insurance, but it costs more - minimum cost for a one pound package to even a nearby
country like Canada is $21, and it goes up from there. EMS is faster,
includes insurance and tracking, and is usually more expensive.
CANADIAN CUSTOMERS: In some cases, your shipping costs may be less than quoted here. You can ask first, or, in the instances where they can be reduced, we will refund the difference between what you were chraged and our usual charge to Canada for the service utilized.
S&H PRICES IN THE LISTING: International Buyers, if you are unsure, or if you'd like a quote for another service, PLEASE, contact us BEFORE YOU BUY to ask for an S&H price quote and make sure to include your country.
If you made multiple purchases that can be shipped in one package, WAIT FOR OUR INVOICE. DO NOT pay for an item or items, arbitrarily inserting a figure for S&H. Payment is due 48 hours AFTER we send the invoice with S&H for your country included. If you pay the US shipping cost and you live outside the USA it will not only delay the shipping of your item, but it will cost you more in the long run. It is not our responsibility to chase after you if you make the wrong payment, so we take care of the buyers who have paid correctly first and will notify the others when we have time to get to them.
CUSTOMS VALUES & FEES: We will NOT falsify customs forms for anyone - EVER! We buy plenty of stuff from around the world and sympathize with Customs fees, but don't ask or expect us to lie for you, it puts us at risk and we will not do it.
If you have to pay customs and / or other fees in your country, this is your responsibility - not ours. If an item sent internationally is returned to us because the buyer refuses to accept it or pay fees imposed by your local government or delivery service, we will not refund the S&H costs if the
item is returned to us. Again, these costs are the buyer's responsibility, not the seller's.
DELIVERY TIMES: International Deliveries face various potential roadblocks that domestic shipments do not – customs officials & inspections in particular – so we cannot guarantee that any package will arrive within a specified period of time. Most packages do arrive within the estimates.
