SHIPPING METHODS: We use USPS for most shipments. In rare cases we may use UPS instead, especially if the package is large or oversized.
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). Since eBay has recently changed it's system to pressure buyers to pay immediately rather than wait, you will have to add items to your eBay shopping cart and then REQUEST A COMBINED SHIPPING INVOICE. 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.
PAYMENT TIMELINE: 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).
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 FOREIGN (EX-USA) BUYERS
SHIPPING METHODS & COSTS: Items must ship by Priority Mail or better to satisfy eBay rules, which protect both buyer and seller. Priority is usually faster than 1st Class and includes insurance, but it costs more - and rates have risen again. EMS is faster, includes insurance and tracking, and is usually even more expensive.
S&H PRICES IN THE LISTING: International Buyers, these are the correct S&H prices calculated by eBay's rate calculator - and they are (usually) the least expensive options. 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 specify your country.
VALUES ON CUSTOMS FORMS & CUSTOMS FEES: We will NEVER 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. 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 to 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.
