Payment & Shipping Info:
Winning bidder/buyer receives automatic notice with payment total. Please use eBay checkout by clicking “Pay For It” button in the e-mail notice or item listing.
PayPal is my preferred payment method. With PayPal, buyers can pay with credit card, eCheck, or cash balance in their account.
US buyers pay $1.00 for packaging and US Postal Service First Class shipment. Will combine shipping on multiple items purchased. Add $0.25 for each additional item, and please pay with a single payment after all purchases have been completed. (If unsure how to combine payment, please request an invoice, and I will combine the shipping charges for you.)
International Shipping Costs:
Canadian buyers pay $1.25 for first item and $0.30 each additional. All other international buyers pay $1.50 for first item and $0.50 each additional. Items ship First Class Mail International to customers outside the US, so please bid only if you have confidence in postal delivery to your address.
Click "Ask a question" link above to make initial contact, and I will respond in kind using the “eBay Messaging” forum. Please monitor your e-mail and/or eBay "Messages" tab for my response. I'll share my e-mail address in the response, and you are welcome to communicate with me via e-mail at that point if you wish.
(Your e-mail address will only be used for response to questions or transactions. I have no interest in sending unsolicited advertising, and will not share your contact info with anyone.)
I try to respond within 24 hours, but hope you understand I do have a life outside eBay, and may not always be so prompt. And please take into account weekends and traditional US holidays.
Messages communicating info about a listed item are appreciated ..... but may not get response quite as fast as a message that requires immediate answer. I do have to prioritize every now and then. ;-)
Packaging & Reliability:
My flat-fee shipping structure covers cost of packaging and postage, and is a best-guess estimate for size and weight of items. It's not an exact science. (I have not raised my shipping fees over the years, despite several postal rate increases.) Items ship in zip-closure poly bags to protect from moisture. Patches usually ship as First Class letters, but multiple items may ship together as a parcel.
In my experience, the track record of US Postal Service delivery within the US is practically 100% reliable. I may at my discretion choose tracking and/or insurance for shipments of a certain value. But the best insurance you can have is to make sure you provide a current and correct postal delivery address, and to check your mailbox regularly.
Items ship within 1 business day of receiving payment. Check my feedback for satisfied customer testimonials!
I always post feedback after a completed transaction and always appreciate feedback from satisfied buyers. Normally takes me only a day or two, but sometimes I get behind. Please be patient. Also, if you are dissatisfied in any way, please contact me before posting negative. Maybe there's a misunderstanding, or something we can work out.
"No Returns Accepted" is my designated policy, unless an item has a defect or was misrepresented. I go to great lengths to describe each item honestly and accurately, and there’s a ruler in each photo for size comparison. I ask that you be sure of your decision before buying. Please read the description entirely and carefully examine the photo. Ask questions prior to bidding. I try to respond to e-mail inquiries within 24 hours. Please resolve any questions or doubts prior to purchasing.
