First thing about supplier items is the shipping rates. Our suppliers have a set shipping rate that we must charge for shipping. We know on some products this is high cost for shipping but we leave the shipping cost as the shipping cost and not include it onto the bidding price or buy it now price. We prefer not to hide that cost on our customers.
Second as we all know gas prices are raising faster then ever before which is also going to make shipping costs more as these items need to be shipped to our supplier and then shipped to you. We are pretty sure in time our suppliers will raise the cost of shipping on their items due to the outrageous gas prices. There is nothing we can do about this.
Third Please do not assume you will receive the product in time by the time you need it when it is a supplier item. If you ask us first we can generally be able to know from that supplier if it will be there in the time you need it to be. Some of our suppliers ship rather quickly and others not so quick. Please also keep in mind that we place the order and then that needs to be processed by our supplier and then they send it to the company that has that product and then that company processes your order and ships it.
Some suppliers we deal directly with and allows for faster shipping time. Please ask us first if you need an item by a certain time frame and we can let you know if it is possible to get by the time you need.
As always any questions about any item and shipping, etc just email us. Supplier items are limited to where they can ship to but for the places the suppliers can not ship to if you are interested in the item and willing to pay shipping cost to us and then shipping cost to you as we would have to have the item shipped to us first. Just email us and we can make arrangements with you and give you a shipping quote.
We are always listing more items if you would like to be one of the first to see new products join our mailing list.
For discontinued items and out of stock items we do apologize for but with so many suppliers and products listed that we have it is impossible to check all the items and still be able to list new items as well as ordering the items and packing and shipping the items we have that we list. We do offer full refunds on any item that has been discontinued that we can not find any place else.
For out of stock items if you are willing to wait for it to come back in stock we will place your order as soon as the item is available again. If you are not willing to wait and do not want a similar item we will issue a full refund.
We are only two people and with also working outside of ebay we would appriecate your understanding on discontinued or out of stock items.
Hope this info better helps understand about suppliers items.
