Goracoin Terms of Sale
I aim to please, as you may gather from my feedback!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about a listing, or problems with an order!
You agree to the following terms of sale by purchasing an item from me:
I always try to send things out on the same day or at least within two or three days of receiving an order, and that is my usual schedule for shipments.
As soon as I mail an item, I always use the ebay “contact buyer” button to send you an email letting you know that it is on its way.
If you have special packaging instructions and/or prefer to pay extra for special shipping, please let let me know before you checkout, and I will be happy to oblige by emailing an ebay invoice with the desired shipping charge.
Being seasonally employed in the outdoors during winter (roughly late November through March), I can only get to the bank and post office once or twice a week during the winter months to send out Insured orders. Unfortunately, I am required by circumstances to earn part of my living by becoming employed in the wintertime (and I’m more than happy to be employed)!
Our local post office sales counter closes at 4, and the lobby at 4:30pm, too early for me to reach after work! I get off work after 4 and cannot transact any business at the post office because of its hours. In this part of the country, it sometimes takes fifteen minutes or more just to clean the snow off a car, scrape the ice off the windshield, warm up the engine, and get ready to drive!
I can send out regular uninsured letters almost any day of the week, but insured packages only on my days off from work, for the reason explained above. Besides this, all of my more expensive items are kept in the local bank, and I can only get these items out on a Friday evening (when the bank stays open a little longer for people to cash their paychecks) or on my days off during the week.
This is why I stipulate the five working day (Monday through Friday) order fulfillment time in my ebay listings.
I base my shipping charges on the cost of mailing at the local post offices, plus reasonable handling charges to help cover my costs; postage costs can vary from one post office and one clerk to another, and don’t ask me why!
If your address is outside of the United States, please contact me for shipping cost before completing your order.
Buyers outside of the United States must pay an extra $11.50 for Registered Mail. If a foreign shipment requires a customs form, it will be filled in with the actual sale price of the item or items listed on it.
In my experience the post office very very rarely loses a package, but there are those rare times when items get damaged in transit.
Once a piece of mail leaves my hands at the post office, I have no control over it!
If you purchase more than one lot in my sale, please do not complete the ebay checkout until I have emailed you an invoice with the reduced postage amount. When you buy more than one lot, I reduce the shipping total, and if you pay for each purchase separately, I get charged an extra 30 cents for each item by paypal. The fees add up quickly when I’m selling items for as little as $2.99 each! ebay has begun collecting a fee on the shipping cost in addition to the selling price!
What does it cost to sell on ebay? Ebay charges me 12% on sales, which means for instance: on a $2.99 sale:
I pay ebay ................. 36 cents,
paypal .............. 30 cents
+ 2.9% to paypal . 9 cents
monthly listing fee .. 5 cents per item.
This means a cost of 80 cents on the sale of a $2.99 postcard, and that doesn’t even include my purchase cost, the cumulative listing fees of 5 cents per month, monthly ebay store fee of $49.95, and packaging materials. Before I even sell anything, I already owe ebay over $100 every month!
Timely payment for items is appreciated! I usually send out an ebay unpaid item reminder after a week or so if payment has not been received.
Paypal is a good system for buyers, paypal and ebay, and a costly one for sellers, who pay all of the fees connected with it! Ebay does not like “dangerous paper payments” because then they do not collect the extra paypal fees. They decided to force all sellers to go through paypal, which I understand is half-owned by ebay; no wonder!
Items are subject to prior sale in the very rare instance that I may forget to remove a listing after making a sale in my shop.
Seven-day return privilege on all items, return postage paid by the buyer, provided the items are returned in the same condition they were in when they were mailed to the buyer.
I do not file feedback until you do, because I am not satisfied unless you are!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or problems with an order!
