Payment would be appreciated within five days by PayPal.
All buyers - Paypal only. No checks, cheques or postal orders or money orders.
Instant Paypal payment is the quickest method. Paypal e-cheques can take up to ten days to be cleared, so please understand your item cannot be sent until funds have been cleared by Paypal.
If you have purchased in error, then I am quite approachable.. just make contact. Ignoring invoices and emails just wastes time, and will result in a unpaid item claim being opened to reclaim fees. This will happen after 7 days (not the usual 4 as ebay suggest) so please keep me updated if there is likely to be a delay!
Most UK postage is FREE of charge - unless you select an upgraded method yourself.
All items for shipment within UK sent by Recorded Delivery as standard to cover both buyer & seller inline with Paypals Seller/Buyer Protection t&c. This provides a trackable number to prove delivery, with a signature.Royal Mail charge £1.10 for this service on top of their 1st class price.
International postage is ALWAYS by Royal Mails International Signed For Service. Again, this provides an essential tracking number and a signature upon delivery, which is insisted upon by Paypal to qualify for Seller/Buyer Protection. Once the package leaves the UK, it is in the hands of your local delivery service, and cannot be tracked online until delivered. (Hence the Roayl Mail fee for this additional service is approx £5.30 on top of Airmail charge)
Any over-estimate of p&p for international buyers is ALWAYS refunded back, so no one ever pays more than the actual stamp cost for sending.
I am happy to combine shipping for items purchased together. This is especially beneficial for International buyers, as i realise the 'signed for' service is more expensive than standard airmail - but combining items gives better value for money.
If you wish an International Courier Service to deliver your parcel in order to have a constantly trackable number.. then please email me for a quote BEFORE bidding or buying. I will have to approach FedEx for a price. From experience it is likely to cost at least 4 times the amount of Royal Mail... so will be significantly more expensive. If required, please let me know. I should have a response within 24 hrs.
All items are posted within 24 hours of CLEARED payment being received, usually the same day if possible. Items bought on Sundays will be posted out the following day.
Im sorry if you do not wish recorded method of delivery - but i cannot send without trackable method to save money! I realise it will cost me less, and other sellers may do this... but i cannot.
As a seller i am responsible to ensure package arrives safely with you, the buyer.. this is the cheapest,safest, and recommended way of doing so.
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up ? do not confuse them for additional P&P charges.
We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - International government regulations prohibit such behaviour.
I appreciate items may not fit or suit when they arrive...
Returns are accepted within 14 days of receipt, but PLEASE notify me before returning, via the ebay messaging system. Postage costs for returning items must be met by the buyer, and sent by a recorded method with online tracking, as it was sent out to you.
Please include ALL the packaging & paypal printed invoice I sent to you originally to speed up the refund process. This provides essential cover to comply with Paypals Buyer / Seller Protection Policy.
I will refund the original amount you paid me,, upon safe return of the item. Items obviously must have their original tags, and be unworn and undamaged. This includes any p&p you may have paid (if you chose alternative method to free p&p)
Measurements and full accurate descriptions are in the listing to prevent the need for returns, so please do check sizes etc before buying. Items should NEVER arrive damaged, as they are thoroughly checked before packaging.
Any flaws are ALWAYS noted in the listing, so in the unlikely event that Royal Mail damage the packaging in transit - I will have to investigate with RM upon return to myself.
All items that are pre-worn , and are able to go in washing machine, will have been laundered using Lenor gold softener - so if you are adverse to this particular brand PLEASE be aware before purchasing that you may wish to relaunder in your own allergy sensitive products before use.
It is very unusual to have an adverse reaction, as it is used in its correct dosage, so not overpowering - so far i have had one unhappy buyer mention it in about 8000 sales... so i have decided to add this to keep buyers aware upfront.
Freshly laundered items are much more pleasant to receive!
Assume ALL items i sell have been laundered or dry cleaned unless otherwise stated - ie BNWT or genuine vintage items, but vintage listings will give individual info.
If you have any questions not answered in the listing, please message me via the eBay message console as i cannot guarantee i will see emails sent outwith ebay.
