Payment Payment must be made within 7 days of winning bid unless other arrangements have been made. If there is a problem with payment, please contact me. I am quite reasonable and willing to help sort out any problems, but If I receive no contact after 7 days have passed, a non-payment case will be opened and I will offer the item to the next highest bidder. Payments from overseas must be made with paypal unless other arrangements are agreed with me prior to bidding. U.K payments can be made via paypal, personal cheque or postal order. Cash on collection is also possible by arrangement. Shipping I AIM TO SHIP OUT ALL ITEMS WITHIN THREE WORKING DAYS - I GO TO THE POST OFFICE THREE TIMES A WEEK. IF YOU NEED AN ITEM MORE URGENTLY LET ME KNOW WHEN PURCHASING. Combined Shipping for items: If you buy more than one item from me, please wait to be invoiced before paying so that I can apply an appropriate postage discount. I will combine multiple purchases to help reduce postage costs where possible, as it is usually possible to post several small items in one parcel for less than the cost of sending them in separate parcels. Note: Overseas shipments have to weigh less than 2kg packed weight to be sent by Airmail, otherwise they have to go by courier, which is usually much more expensive. For overseas shipments, It is best to ask first if I can combine your items before you bid. Postage Costs: I keep my postage costs to a reasonable level - but they do have to reflect the costs of lightweight packaging materials and the time spent packing the item properly so that it will arrive with you in one piece. I recycle what I can but still spend a lot on bubblewrap, tape, boxes etc. It is not my aim to make a profit out of shipping costs, but I do spend many hours packing items and my time is valuable too. NOTE THAT EBAY ALSO TAKE A PERCENTAGE OF YOUR SHIPPING CHARGES - THIS ADDS ABOUT 10% TO THE BILL. Recorded delivery: I always obtain proof of posting, but it is possible for the item to get lost or stolen in transit. I do offer a recorded delivery service, and would strongly advise that you use it. If you want Recorded Delivery, or special next day delivery, or a tracked courier service, please let me know prior to payment and I'll add the charge for this to your billing.
