SHIPPING AND HANDLING

SHIP IT YOUR OWN WAY - AND SUPER FAST!

 

No hidden or jacked up shipping charges here! Pay only the cost of shipping your item by calculating it with the Shipping Calculator OR having a Fixed Price for selected categories or items!

 

I guarantee very fast shipping within 24 HOURS OR LESS of receiving payment. Most orders are shipped the SAME DAY or the morning of the next business day. (SEE MY FEEDBACK ON THIS CLAIM!)

 

I ship exclusively by the USPS. Some small item categories (books, CDs, DVDs, videos, software, etc.) have a flat shipping rate. Larger and heavier items are calculated by the Shipping Calculator, which calculates fees based on the ESTIMATED PACKAGED WEIGHT and dimensions of the item AND your distance from me. Buyers are strongly encouraged to consult the calculator and ask about shipping costs BEFORE placing a bid or purchasing. Each item contains the two-three LOWEST shipping methods for its size and weight. Select your own shipping method based on your delivery needs: 

  • Media Mail: The cheapest (but slowest) method for shipping books, CDs, DVDs, videos, and software - 5 to 9 days. Delivery, however, COULD take as long as 14 to 21 days! (in a few instances, it HAS taken this long for delivery, especially during the holiday rush season!)
  • First Class: Available for items up to 13 ounces – 2 to 5 days.
  • Parcel Post: Cheaper than Priority, but slower - 2 to 9 days depending on location. The closer you are to me, the cheaper and faster shipment will be.
  • Priority Mail: When you need it fast - 2 to 3 days.
  • Express Mail: Overnight delivery - available upon request.  

IF YOU NEED SOMETHING QUICKLY, DO NOT SELECT ONE OF THE CHEAPER AND SLOWER METHODS OF DELIVERY!

 

Sellers cannot GUARANTEE an exact delivery date for ANY of the USPS shipping methods, EXCEPT Express Mail, which guarantees next day delivery. The seller has no control over the accuracy of USPS delivery estimates and should not be held responsible for packages that get held up in the USPS system.

 

A small package and handling fee of $2.50 (or $1.50 for small items) will be added to your order. Items can be shipped directly to another recipient at no additional cost. Also, a gift-wrapping service is available upon request for an additional nominal fee.

 

Delivery confirmation is used on all orders and can be tracked at www.usps.com. You will receive a tracking number in a confirmation email following your purchase.

 

I hold very closely to my shipping guarantee. So, if you need your package shipped to a DIFFERENT address than the one included on your eBay account, please notify me immediately.

 

I use high quality shipping materials. However, I also highly value and practice recycling. So, your package may arrive in a used box or envelop that is in perfect condition for shipping and may have newspaper, plastic bags, or cut up boxes as packaging material. All gift boxes, however, will be brand new.

BUY MORE GET A SHIPPING DISCOUNT!

 

I offer a shipping discount for multiple item purchases! Buy ONE ITEM at the regular shipping rate and pay only $2.50 (or $1.50 for small items) for EACH ADDITIONAL ITEM purchased, no matter its size or weight! This is a GREAT bargain, since many items are over 2 - 3 lbs in packaged weight. You can mix and match any items. The item with the highest shipping rate will count as the regular shipping rate item.

 

Also, I offer FREE SHIPPING when you purchase 5 or more items! You can mix and match any items. I will select the cheapest shipping method for the combined order. Therefore, the shipping method and estimated delievery time for any individual item will change once it is combined with all of your other items. If you need your order quicker than my selected shipping method, you can elect to pay the difference for a shipping upgrade.

 

PAYMENT METHODS

 

My sole payment method is PayPal. Money orders, cashier’s checks, personal checks, and cash are no longer allowed by eBay. Without exception, you must register for an account in order to use PayPal. You are expected to pay for your items within five (5) days of purchase or at the end of an auction. IF YOU CANNOT PAY WITHIN 5 DAYS, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE OR BID!

 

Also, please do not email to negotiate a different price for items that do not have the "best offer" option.

 

PLEASE NOTE: If you select eCheck as your payment method through PayPal, it can take an entire week for the check to clear and will delay your shipment.

 

Once you have placed an order, please read your email frequently to answer any questions or issues that I may have about your order. Also, if you pay for your order and it does not contain the correct shipping charges, I will bill you for the difference and your shipment will be held until the additional payment is received.

 

I will reply to all correspondence about your order within 24 hours.

 

I reserve the right to cancel orders or bids from any buyer with less than 5 feedbacks, multiple negative ratings, recent disputes with sellers as noted in their feedback, and who displays negative attitudes, language, and/or demeanor in email correspondences.

 

I will report to eBay and block from making future purchases from my Store any buyer who:

  • does not pay for a purchase or winning bid within 5 days
  • fails to respond to follow-up email messages regarding payment
  • attempts to renegotiate or fail to pay for shipping costs AFTER winning a bid or making a purchase
  • requests cancellation of an order AFTER winning a bid or making a purchase

I will make every attempt to work out any shipping and handling issues with you before filing an eBay report!

 

Refunds and Returns

 

My descriptions are VERY accurate. So you will never require a return for an item that does not match the listing description. However, returns are accepted within 30 days of delivery for items lost or damaged by the USPS or that I accidently mis-send. Refunds for lost or damaged items will be handled through the USPS and claims are processed within 10 business days. To process these claims, the USPS requires that you MUST RETAIN the damaged item and all packaging materials. If a USPS claim is unsuccessful, I will reimburse for the PURCHASE PRICE of the item. If I mis-send an item, I will offer either an exact replacement OR an item of similar value and type. If you do not accept a replacement, I will offer a full refund of the purchased item upon its return to me. Return shipping is the buyer’s responsibility EXCEPT for items mis-sent by the seller, which I will reimburse. No refunds will be processed after 30 days of delivery. 

 

Failure to comply with any of these requirements

will result in a shipping delay or cancellation of your order.
