Payment Terms: I accept and prefer payment be made through Paypal, although I also accept money orders and personal checks (item will be shipped after check clears, usually about 10 days after receipt). International buyers must Payment must be received within 10 days of auction close. If not, eBay will be contacted about non-payment, negative feedback will be left and item will be relisted. Please, if you have a problem making the payment on time, let me know as soon as possible so we can work it out.

Shipping Terms: I'll ship this item anyw to anyone. International bidders welcome. Please use the shipping calculator included in all my listings to determine the cost of shipping High bidder pays winning bid plus USPS Priority Mail, Parcel Post (when item is very heavy) or Airmail Letter/Parcel Post shipping, and insurance. Air Parcel Post includes some insurance based on the weight of the package. I don't insist on insurance for all items, but even though your item will be packed very well, I strongly suggest it - I can't be held responsible for damage or loss in the mail. Because packages do get lost & t's no way to track them once they've disappeared, I require Delivery Confirmation on every domestic item I send out. This lets both seller & buyer track their item in transit, and gives the Post Office a way to find it should it get lost. An additional shipping charge of $2.00 will be added to all internationally shipped items, to cover the cost of additional packing expenses. International buyers, please don't pay through eBay check-out -- wait for my invoice, which will usually be to you within an hour of auction closing

Multiple Item Shipping: I'm happy to combine shipping charges on multiple wins, within reason. However, the buyer must bring it to my attention ahead of time if one item has been won, but another for the multiple ship is still pending. I can't be held responsible if I'm not notified.

Refunds & Returns: If you win this item and upon receiving it find my description to be inaccurate, I will gladly refund the full (or partial, if applicable) bid price, minus a 10% restocking fee (this covers the listing cost). Returning buyer pays for shipping & insurance back to me. In order to receive a full or partial refund for any reason, item(s) in question must be returned to me I must be notified by email that t's a problem within 3 days of receipt - I will not accept returns without this.
