We strive to keep our store prices among the lowest on Ebay so please support us by always clicking on one of our store links within our auctions or manually entering the URL into your browser. Our URL is http://stores.ebay.com/A-Card-shack.

 

Payments Types Accepted

 

We prefer Pay Pal and accept money orders and cashiers checks. Please no personnel checks. Auctions not paid after 7 days will be reported as not paid and the cards will be re-auctioned.

 

Product Line

 

Gameing: We currently try to carry all current releases for MTG, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh products available. All of you products are English print unless otherwise noted in the auction.

 

- Chessex Dice: We currently try to carry all available dice sets that Chessex has in print. If you find we do not have the color you are looking for then please let me know and we will try to get it. If you want to place a special order outside of these sets I can special order single dice for you.

 

- Sleeves, Deck Boxes, and Playmats: We try to carry a large quantity of most of the Ultra Pro, KMC, Dragon Shield, and Players Choice Sleeves, Deck Boxes and Playmats and reduced prices.

 

- Other Gaming Products: As time allows we will expand our store to include other games and gaming products. We are always looking at adding additional products if we don't carry what you are looking for us and we will see if we can supply that item. Items special ordered normally ship in about 5 days.

 

Occasionally we may run out of a product in our store. If this happens we will notify you immediately, and you can choose to either still receive your item but know it will take a few  days longer to ship or you may receive a full refund if you do not want to wait.

 

Packaging

 

We take pride in ensuring all our products are shipped in a safe manner. Below is generally how you can expect to receive you items. If any item is damaged in the mail we offer a money back guarantee.

 

- Single cards are shipped in plastic sleeves, and placed inside a reinforced envelope.

- Most everything else the default shipping is a padded envelope. If you would like your items shipped in a box for added protection then you need to request that before you pay because it could significantly add to the cost of shipping.

 

Shipping Cost and Times*

 

We generally ship all items through the United States Post Office within 2 to 3 days of payment. (We normally ship Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) If you desire shipping via another carrier I will be glad to offer you a price quote. So far the USPS has been the cheapest method of shipping over 95% of the time.

 

We price our shipping based on the actual cost of shipping (which is why many of our auctions use calculate shipping to determine the cost) plus a small handling fee (up to $1.00) to help cover the cost of eBay and paypal fees. As stated before with your help we can continue to offer low prices and shipping if you click on our store link or enter the URL into your web browser before making purchases at our ebay store. Our URL is http://stores.ebay.com/A-Card-shack.

 

US shipping times

- First Class: generally takes 2 to 4 days.

- Priority Mail: generally takes 2 to 3 days.

- Express: generally takes 1 to 2 days.

 

International shipping times

- International First Class: 15-30 days

- Priority: Generally 10-20 days

- Express: Generally 5-10 days

 

For international customers these times are longer than what the United States Post Office advertises as the average time it takes for a package to arrive at its destination, but the above times are what I have seen as the average amount of time. Items often get delayed going through customs for no apparent reason which can delay your shipment from arriving. To assist with a speedy delivery international customers should provide a telephone number when they pay.

 

* I reserve the right to change carriers or change shipping method as long as it will improve the likelihood that your item will arrive sooner. Example would be upgrading your purchase to Express from Priority.

 

Tracking Numbers

 

I post all tracking numbers in pay pal and on eBay when I purchase shipping. You should automatically receive an email from eBay letting you know your item was shipped and from either Pay Pal or the USPS with your tracking number. If you do not receive this email then please let me know and I will send it manually. In the US all items will be shipped with delivery confirmation aside from some low cost single cards. For international mail if you want tracking numbers you can view online you must purchase priority mail or express mail shipped in a box. First class and priority mail envelopes only come with customs label # which can not be checked online, but by which the USPS can track down the item if it is lost. If you have questions about this please ask before you purchase.

 

Reduced Shipping for multiple items

 

Maximize your savings by purchasing multiple items and receiving reduced shipping. All auctions won and purchases made within a 5 day period and paid for at the same time will receive reduced shipping on most items at a rate of 50% or greater* for each additional purchase after the first. This is just a general guidline and does not always apply. I charge exact shipping by item weight so depending on the item sometimes shipping discounts may be more or less. We are more than willing to give you a price quote prior to purchase if you tell us what you are intereseted in.

 

When purchasing multiple items please wait for use to send you an invoice with the correct shipping before you make payment. If eBay calculates shipping incorectly you will be asked to make the additional payment before we ship. If you calculate shipping wrong and have to make a second payment a charge of $.50 will be assed to cover additional charges. In particular I have noticed eBay often miscalculates shipping when you purchase more than on of the same item.

 

* International customers do not necessarily receive a 50% rate reduction for multiple items as shipping is calculated based on weight.

 

Insurance

 

Insurance is provided on all items and is included in the price of the items. This insurance is not US Postal insurance but private insurance, which gives you the customer a quicker turn around to get your purchase refunded or re-shipped, and I will fight with the postal service for any refunds that can be obtained, which can take months. In general The following insurance rates have been added to the cost of the item.

For singles, sets, or repacks you will be charged 10% of the total value, as a restocking fee, minimum of $1. For sealed boxes and boosters that have not been opened the restocking fee is also 10%. If the seal on a box has been broken then their will be a restocking fee of 25% for devaluation. If booster packs have been opened then you can not return the items, as there is no way to tell if the cards have been switched out.
