Payment is due 7 days from the auction's end. All combined auctions must be paid for by the 7th day of the first auction won to receive the combined shipping discount. Non paying bidder alerts are filed automatically after the 7th day, and strikes are filed after the 10th day of non-payment and the item will be relisted. Sorry, we do not make exceptions to the policy, even if you contact us. The majority of our customers pay promptly, and for this we thank you!
