Orders usually ship within 48 hours of PROCESSED payment, excluding weekends & holidays. Default method for most merchandise is Media Mail (or First Class, for especially light-weight items), unless otherwise noted. Priority Mail is also offered, for which the cost varies depending on the type of item(s) being purchased. Shipping charges to Canada are currently the same as those to ship within the U.S.
Significantly reduced shipping charges are offered for purchases of multiple items. In most cases, additional items each add only $1.00 to the amount charged to ship the first item (determined to be whichever product has the highest shipping fee). Payment is expected within two weeks of placing your first order, to allow time to continue shopping for additional items. A one-time payment must be submitted IN FULL in order to qualify for any reduced shipping fees that may apply, so please wait for confirmation of exact amount due before making any payment.
NOTE: ALL cases of non-payment will result in negative feedback. Otherwise, receiving feedback is highly contingent upon whether or not the buyer provides it. This is because a seller’s feedback rating is so much more useful to other prospective customers than a buyer’s rating. In most cases, a seller prematurely rating a buyer positively is more or less an attempt to oblige the buyer into "returning the favor". However, positive or negative ratings and/or comments will not be "exchanged" with us. Rather, they will accurately and honestly depict the transaction itself. Simply stated, we are much more concerned with whether or not our buyers are genuinely happy with us than in protecting an untarnished, yet meaningless, feedback score.**
Please be advised that free shipping is not offered at this time. In the event that a listing does not indicate a shipping charge, please inquire for the fee amount.
Inquiries are responded to promptly. Buyers are encouraged to ask questions prior to placing orders, as all sales are final unless the product you receive differs significantly from that which was advertised here in terms of either the product itself OR its promised condition. Exceptions are made only in the event that a buyer is willing to return at his or her own expense an unopened, BRAND NEW item for a refund of the original purchase price only. No shipping costs will be refunded, unless we are at fault for sending you the wrong item or misrepresenting the product and/or its condition. Merchandise is 100% guaranteed. Approved returns (e.g. those not a result of simple "buyer remorse") are accepted for a refund within 30 days of purchase if product is defective or otherwise varies significantly from its original description. No such problems to date!
**In other words: NO GAMES like on eBay where buyers are intimidated into being silent about their dissatisfaction by being subjected to purely retaliatory negative feedback and nasty remarks from sellers angry about having honest and factual (though not personal) comments posted regarding their mediocre—and all too often, extremely unprofessional—service. If this statement is to your liking, click on "About Store" for even more "titillating" comments. You just might be one of us!
