We offer combined shipping discounts for multiple item purchased but not yet paid within four (4) days of each other, unless the buyer makes other arrangements with the seller. The payment due date will be based on the first purchase made. Combined shipping cost will be based on the total weight of the package in 1 pound increments, subject to any postal restrictions on package insurance or the number of items allowed per package due for customs limitations. Insurance is required and will be included in invoiced shipping charges. Packages valued up to $150.00 are sent via USPS Priority International. Packages valued over $150.00 are sent via USPS Express International.


Please contact us for a shipping quote before bidding and request an invoice before paying if you want a combined shipping discount.


We will not ship via USPS First Class International for any electronic or Paypal payments, as it does not provide online viewable delivery tracking or insurance and does not comply with Paypal and Ebay seller protection policies. For these reasons we only ship USPS Priority International and Express for any electronic or Paypal payments.


International shipments require an official Customs Declaration Form placed inside an official Customs Form Envelope which must lay flat without being folded over to any side on the package. As the dimensions of the Customs Form Envelope are 9 inches by 6 inches, items (no matter how small) will be packaged to accommodate this Customs requirement. Please do not be surprised to receive a bigger package than expected. As an added plus, items are securely packaged ensuring they arrive intact to foreign destinations.


We will not falsify information on the Customs form. Ebay transactions are considered commercial and will be marked as such and not as "Gifts" or "Returned Goods."


Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts"- US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
