's the "fine print" to prevent any misunderstandings.
Please be doubly sure your email address is current , that your mail box isn't full , and that your spam guard isn't too tight . We get very frustrated when email gets kicked back.
SHIPPING: All light items will be posted by U.S. Post Office shipping with optional insurance. We pack very, very well. But, if you decline insurance , we will not be responsible for damage or loss once the item leaves our possession.
Foreign buyers be aware that shipping and insurance is expensive , often near the cost of the item. Visit the U.S. Postal Service site at http://ircalc.usps.gov/ to calculate approximate shipping costs before you bid. We WILL NOT forge legal postal documents to fulfill your desires to evade your country's import duty.
SETTLEMENT: Low numbered personal checks may wait ten business days for clearance . Checks or money orders must be payable in U.S. Dollars and be drawn on a bank with a U.S. presence. Checks returned for insufficient funds will incur a $25.00 charge regardless of the alleged reason for the problem. Credit cards will be accepted free of charge within the United States.
Settlement must be received within 10 days of the closing of this auction . If the buyer is delinquent, lazy, forgetful, belligerent or clueless, the seller reserves the right to negate the sale when he has had enough of such foolishness.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS: if you have a question, any question, ask it now before the auction is final. We monitor email daily, and at least every couple of days when we travel as infrequent as that is.
Your bidding on this item constitutes your acceptance of these terms.
