How much will it cost to send an item to me?
my shipping charges are detailed at the bottom of each listing.
If you are in Australia, you can choose from Regular, Registered
or Express Post. Packages going outside of Australia are
sent Air Mail, and international buyers also have the option
of using either Registered or Express Post for a trackable option.
Do you combine shipping for multiple purchases?
I'm happy to combine multiple item purchases in the one
package to minimise overall shipping costs. If you would
like an exact quote, please email me with the Item Numbers
you are interested in, along with either your Australian
postcode or country of destination, and I will provide you
with a cost for combined shipping.
I've bought more than one item. Will the the shipping cost be accurate when I go through Check Out?
I have automated shipping discounts built-in so most of the time the shipping cost shown at Check Out will be accurate. If the automated shipping is too high, I will be happy to refund the difference. Please feel free to request an invoice from me before making your payment if you would like me to check the shipping calcuation.
What shipping services do you use to send items?
Post for all my shipping needs and offer their full
ranges of services for Australian and international customers.
In my many years of trading on eBay, I have found Australia
Post to be the safest and most economical service available
in most cases and have had only a handful of packages go
missing in transit (all of which were compensated for by
Australia Post). I am happy to use and recommend them to
any buyer or seller on eBay.
When will you send my package?
will be shipped within 1 to 3 business days of receiving your
payment. I try to send all packages out within one business day of
payment being received, but sometimes there might be a slight
delay of a day or two. If you have chosen Express
Post then I guarantee your package
will be sent within one business day.
When can I expect my package to arrive?
depends on your chosen shipping method as well as your location.
Within Australia, Express Post should arrive within 1-3
days, while Regular/Registered Post can take up to 2 weeks.
International parcels can take 1-3 weeks, depending on where
they are going. If your item hasn't arrived within these
time frames, please let me know.
Do you ship outside of Australia?
all of my items can be shipped to anywhere in the world.
A very few items are restricted to Australia for reasons
of their size/weight, or because exporting them is problematic
for other reasons. If an item cannot be shipped internationally,
it will always be stated in the listing.
I'm in Australia and the listing says that insurance is
"not offered". Why can't I insure this item?
certainly can insure any puchase you make from me. Within
Australia, you need to choose the Registered Post
option which is available on all my listings and
this cost will cover the full value of your purchase in
the case of loss or damage in transit. International buyers
are offered the "Insurance" option. While neither
option is compulsory, they are highly recommended. All care
is taken in packaging, but I cannot be held responsible
for uninsured items lost or damaged in transit
How do I know my purchase will arrive safely?
always take great care with packaging and use bubble-wrap,
void-fill, padded envelopes and protective cardboard and/or
boxes whenever necessary. Very occasionally breakages do
occur, however, so I recommend Registered Post (which includes
insurance) for Australian buyers or Insurance for international
customers, especially if the item you are purchasing is
fragile. These options will insure that, in the rare event
of a loss or breakage in transit, I will be able to offer
a full refund or replacement item.
Do you have more of this item than the quantity listed?
I often have more of each item in stock than are currently
listed. If you would like to purchase more than the quantity
that is stated in this listing, please let me know and I
will be happy to revise the listing for you providing I
have the available stock.
Do you have an different sizes/colours/designs to what is
listed in your store?
much of my clothing, I often have additional sizes to those
listed so please feel free to ask if you can't see what
you're after. If I don't have it in stock right now, I will
be happy to order it for you if I can. As I design and handcraft
all of the "Sinpatiko" chain maille jewellery
myself, I'm always more than happy to change bead colours
or alter the size of a piece at little or no charge depending
on the work involved.
Do you have all your items in stock or am I going to have
to wait for weeks?
single item that I have listed on eBay is currently in my
possession and ready to ship. I do not "dropship"
and I never list "pre-order" items. So
you can bid and buy with confidence, knowing that your item
will be sent just as soon as payment is made. That said,
if you can't find an item that I had previously listed,
please feel free to email and ask about it. It might only
be temporarily out of stock with a replacement shipment
on the way. I'm also happy to offer a special order service
if there is something you're after which isn't listed but
is still available from one of my many suppliers.
Do you charge GST and supply a Tax Invoice?
I have an ABN (Australian Business Number) and am registered
for GST, so all purchases are shipped with a Tax Invoice.
Please note, the listed price on all of my items already
includes GST so nothing is added on afterwards.
This also applies to auctions, so the amount of the winning
bid is exactly what you will pay. In accordance with eBay
policies, no GST will be added to the cost
of any item once it is purchased or an auction is won.
