Please note that in an auction items may start at a very low price and may be sold at prices that may considerably exceed the original starting bid. For the purposes of calculation of shipping costs the final cost of the item will be used to calculate the shipping rate and method of shipping NOT the original shipping cost specified in the listing.
Buyers please wait until I send an invoice with the correct shipping cost instead of doing self checkout as this will save me time in making a Paypal request for additional shipping or tax costs.
All items are sent within 5 business days of receipt of payment. It then takes approximately 1-2 weeks (sometimes longer) for the postal system to make it’s delivery. If you receive a notice from eBay stating that the item has been shipped it may not be correct. Please look at your payment date and add 5 business days and contact us only if your item has not been received 2 weeks from this date.
