Seller's payment instructions

If you buy more than one item, PLEASE wait until you receive an invoice before paying. Since ebay have started charging us commission on postage, once you have paid they will not allow us to discount or combine. We find this totally unfair to our customers and to us. We do like prompt payments, but ask you to hold back until we can fairly assess the postage and packaging costs for combined items and send you a revised invoice. Many thanks. PLEASE NOTE Surface Mail option can take up to 56 days
