Payment options: According to eBay policy implemented October 20, 2008, paperless payments are supposed to be the only accepted form of payment. However, according to eBay staff through interaction with our staff we can accept other forms of payment. Therefore, if you would like to pay for your item via money order or cashier's check we are allowed to accept these forms of payment. The same timeframe for prompt payment laid out below still applies, with the one difference being that we would have to manually override the process laid out by eBay's Unpaid Item Assistant program. Please contact us ahead of time if paying via money order or cashier's check, as either form will have to be made out to the owner and not the company due to the way the business accounts are set up.
Payment is expected promptly. We have opted in to eBay's Unpaid Item Assistant program, which automates the process of getting payment and taking the steps of dealing with non-paying bidders. Any item that goes unpaid for four days will have a non-paying bidder alert filed by eBay. If the item goes unpaid another four days, the case is closed and the buyer will receive an Unpaid Item strike. Therefore, a buyer has seven days to complete the payment process.
Pacific Rim Collectibles only will accept payments that are guaranteed secure and trackable. Since we send every package with delivery confirmation and offer optional insurance as a seller to provide a sense of security to all buyers, it is it reasonable to ask for the same kind of security in knowing that payment will be received for items provided. For this reason no checks, Western Union wire transfers, foreign or domestic currencies, or other forms of payment other than those explained above will be accepted or tolerated.
Most items are subject to additional shipping if multiple items are bought. For example, most smaller items (photos, magazines, cards, etc.) will incur an additional 50 cents per item. Other larger items (helmets, balls, etc.) will be subject to additional costs based on packaging restraints. For example, if the items can fit into a single Flat Rate box then they will be shipped at that cost, but if packaging requires additional space then the buyer will assume the cost. We try to cap shipping at a reasonable number if mutliple items are bought; for example, no more than $15 for photos.
All domestic items will be shipped with delivery confirmation and tracking numbers will be provided upon request. Because of our policy of sending everything with confirmation, requests for shipping discounts or the use of self addressed stamped envelopes (SASEs) will not be accepted. International shipping payments REQUIRE an additional charge to cover registered mail ($12 in most cases), and Canada is considered international.
These policies are not subject to negotiation. They are in place in order to provide both buyer and seller with the additional peace of mind knowing that there is a way to track the progress of the transaction or confirm delivery. We will not adjust our shipping costs except in the case that a buyer wishes for Priority or Express service, which will be charged to the buyer at a rate increase we select.
