We accept paypal payment only for our items. If instant paypal payments are a problem for you, Unfortunately, we will not be able to serve you. Payment should be made within 48 Hours of auctions end, and instantly on all items listed as "Buy It Now". If contact has not been made, or payment received by 48 hours of auctions end, then we do reserve the right to relist the item, or offer it as a second chance to any other bidder still interested. We reserve the right to file an unpaid item dispute on any non payers as well.  We reserve the right to involve the ebay administration if, and when, necessary in order to resolve an issue pertaining to this section of this contract. By purchasing any of our items you are entering this contract with the knowledge that these terms do exist, and you are agreeing to everything stated in every section below the item's description. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us via ebay's message system.

When it comes to our shipping, we ship super fast, and our packing has been described by many as "bulletproof!". View our feedback page to see for yourself just what our customers have had to say about our packing techniques. My wife and I go the extra mile to make sure your item reaches you in one piece. Shave ready razors are shipped clean, sterilized, and vacuum sealed.  We do what we can to keep your shipping cost down. When an item is shipped and we find that a customer has overpaid on shipping, we refund the difference to the buyer. We reserve the right to change shipping companies, and shipping services at any time during the process of any transaction, although this is rarely the case. Shipping insurance will no longer be offered on any packages whether domestic, or international as of September 1, 2009 per ebay's new policy which prohibits us FROM OFFERING INSURANCE TO YOU on your items. If this is a problem for you, then please contact us so that the proper arrangements can be made. Some countries charge fees or taxes for conducting business outside of that country, however we are not responsible for any customs fees; the buyers is responsible for any & all customs fees.

Let's face it, international shipping cost vary by a wide margin from seller to seller, making these costs very complicated and frustrating to understand. Unfortunately, most sellers whom ship overseas are not aware of the constantly changing PayPal policies which they are supposed to be following when shipping items to international customers, which is why many sellers offer shipping options that are much cheaper than the options that we currently offer. It is quite a task to keep up with the constant policy changes that sellers must follow when selling on ebay, and although shipping charges may seem rather high, we are no longer allowed to use cheaper shipping options for our international customers. WHY? There are 2 reasons that shipping costs for international customers is higher than it once was:
1. USPS recently increased their prices at the beginning of 2012, which means most registered packages that did costs $18.75 now cost us $25.50; and USPS Express packages that did costs $26.95 now costs $38.00

  2. Paypal's policy states that all packages, including international shipments, must be shipped with DELIVERY CONFIRMATION in order to comply with the buyer/seller protection policy. We are aware that most of the items we sell can be shipped in flat rate priority boxes at a lower rate, however that shipping service DOES NOT comply with paypal's policy, and we as sellers are not covered under the seller protection policy
when we use cheap shipping methods such as International Flat Rate Priority Mail.

 What does this mean? This means that any buyer can claim they never received their package, and we will be responsible for refunding that buyer's full payment unless we can provide proof of shipment AND confirmation of delivery. Since most of our items are being sold by us through our consignment service, then we would not only be responsible for refunding the buyer's full payment, we would also be responsible for paying our consignment customer for the item, essentially, we would be paying for this item twice. In some cases international buyers' banks have requested proof of delivery without the buyers' knowledge, even after the customer has left positive feedback for the item they have received,  and if we can not provide that proof of delivery, then PayPal removes the payment from our account, and refunds it to the buyer's account.

 We know that 99.9% of buyers are good honest people whom would never make a false claim, however there are those few whom would exploit these paypal policies in order to retrieve their payment once the item has been received by them, and we simply can not afford to cover the losses caused by those few.  We NEVER make any profit on shipping costs, EVER! If you over pay on shipping, then we always refund any overpayment.

 ALL items shipped international MUST be shipped USPS Registered Mail at a costs of $25.50. Combined shipping may be available for multiple purchases, however the total weight & value of all items purchased will determine your exact shipping costs. You will NEVER pay more than your actual shipping costs. Any overpayment will be refunded to your account once your shipping label is printed, and once your package has been registered with our local post office.

CANADA: Same rules apply, however your shipping charges are generally lower than the ones we have listed above,  however any amount you over pay in shipping will also be refunded to your account once your package has been registered with the postal service.

 Ebay is not a hobby for us, it is a dedication to our wonderful customers, because without you, this would not be possible ~ We strive to provide an assortment of antique and vintage shaving items at all times. In most cases our items come clean and sterile, and will arrive to you ready for use straight out of the package. We use only new packing material, and most shaving items are sent in a sealed & sterile containers, however it is always recommended that you sterilize your items upon arrival to insure your personal protection. We are not a large company, we are a husband and wife team, and we are human, so we may sometimes make a mistake, therefore if you buy an item from us and find something that we missed, or if you have any problems with your purchase, then please contact us so the problem may be resolved accordingly. Due to trouble with items not getting paid for, we encourage members with a score of zero to contact us prior to bidding, otherwise your bid may be canceled, and you may be blocked from bidding on items in the future.
