from September 4th 2013, ebay have decided that they are no longer content to charge commission only on the final
sale price, but also on the postage and packing charge, so unfortunately
I have had to raise these charges by the same percentage.
This woven sew-on patch measures approximately 2 and a half inches (1 inch = 2.54 cm.) across, and is in excellent unworn condition. I purchased it at a concert at the Bingley Hall, Stafford in about 1980, and it has been kept carefully in a drawer ever since, as I never got around to sewing it onto my jacket, so there are no marks or damage at all.
I am also currently selling several similar items, so please check my other listings.
Payment accepted in sterling by cheque, postal order or International Money Order. Please note that Canadian or US Money Orders in USD cannot be cashed in England; only International Money Orders made out in Pounds Sterling are acceptable. British banks are no longer accepting Eurocheques.
If you would like to pay by PayPal, please read the following SLOWLY and CAREFULLY:
reserve the right to ship only to confirmed PayPal addresses, which
must in each case match the address notified to me by ebay at the time
carriage quoted includes insurance. This is to comply with with
PayPal's Seller Protection Policy. Details of this, and PayPal’s other
policies, can be found on the PayPal website. If you would like to pay
by PayPal, please make sure that you are thoroughly familiar with all of
PayPal's terms and conditions.
The cost of insurance is, for the UK, £1.10
for Recorded Delivery, and this has been included in the postage
amount. This gives coverage up to £50. Above that amount, Special
Delivery is advisable. This costs £6.22 for items weighing less than 100g, and £6.95
for items weighing between 100g and 500g. Rates for heavier items are
higher, and I can supply details on request. Special Delivery means that
your item is insured for up to £500.
For overseas purchases, International Signed For at an additional cost of £5 has been included in the shipping amount. This gives cover up to £50.
service is not available to box numbers outside the UK because of
postal regulations, so any bidders who do not have a street address
registered with ebay are kindly requested to make alternative
arrangements with me before bidding.Only one insurance fee per consignment is charged, so there would be savings if more than one purchase were to be combined.
I realise that insured
shipping is not always cost-effective on items of low value, and so I
used to offer shipping without insurance, at buyer's own risk, which
many customers welcomed, as it was much cheaper, but since 22 September
2009, ebay have removed the ability of the customer to choose insurance as
an optional extra. Therefore, all my listings will have a combined
handling/shipping charge which is inclusive of insurance. Please contact
me IN ADVANCE OF BIDDING if you would prefer shipping without
insurance. This will not be possible should you wish to pay by PayPal.
I would rather not be
paid by echeque, and you will not receive your item before any such
payments have been cleared, which on past experience can take anything
up to 3 weeks. Please ensure that your Paypal account is in credit
before sending any payment.
My preferred method of payment is by cheque drawn on a UK bank.
Please do not bid if you do not agree with ebay/PayPal's conditions.
I will gladly combine items to save on postage, but if you are thinking
of placing further bids, please alert me BEFORE your first item has been
packed, as I would prefer not to have to unpack and repack items.
Please note that I never end auctions early, as it is not fair on
other bidders. Anyone making such a request will automatically be added
to my Blocked Bidders list, along with non-payers, those who repeatedly
pay late or retract bids without good reason, and those who refuse to return feedback when requested.
Finally, please do not be concerned if you do not hear from me
immediately following the end of the auction, as I often have to work
away from home for several days at a time.
POSTAGE AND PACKING CHARGES (INCLUSIVE OF INSURANCE) : UK £1.95, rest of world £7.25 (includes ebay surcharge).
