Seller Terms

Automatic Cancellation Policy: Orders will be cancelled if payment is not received within 5 days.

Shipping costs are displayed on your checkout page.
Just add the items you want to your shopping cart to see the shipping costs.

Please keep in mind that you can expect us to sell the latest available releases/pressings. Many releases have reissues every now and then, many times in different colors etc. We try to have an updated stock with the latest and correct information. It is possible though, that a later reissue is delivered because of the simple fact that we didn't know a newer reissue existed. Most of the times this is caused by labels using the same barcode and/or catalog number for all original and reissue versions, which makes it more difficult to process. Even stickers with color information will not prevent this situation, versions which are sold out are being fulfilled with new stock with the same catalog number and barcode, but without the guarantee the same color is in stock. If in doubt, please ask us first, sometimes we can guarantee a specific color variant.

It is mutually agreed that the terms agreed herein shall remain strictly private and confidential by all parties involved except where required by applicable law, rule or regulation.

Combined Shipping
In order to save on shipping, a buyer should place an order with all items in it. If a buyer placed multiple orders, the buyer is responsible to request a merge of those orders, so that a combined order can safe you on shipping costs. This situation has to do with the automated system we use. Separated orders will be combined into one shipment automatically, if all items sold are available in a short time frame. We may send multiple packages for a single order for several reasons, like maximum package weight or temporarily unavailable items in larger orders.

Important information for multi-color/colored vinyl records.
There are two reasons why it is important to understand that we can't guarantee the color of the vinyl most of the times.

Shipping Requests
If an item is sealed we will not open it nor do we ship with the discs outside of the sleeve, this is because we list our items as "Mint", all requests to do this will be ignored.

1. Many labels use the same catalog number and barcode for different colored issues. We can't guarantee the color of the vinyl because the items are factory sealed and we can't check what's inside.
2. In other situations the color of the vinyl is known (like a sticker with color information), in spite of having the same catalog number and barcode for all the color variants. A good example is the Music On Vinyl label. We work with a centralised warehouse and sold items are picked in the order they are sold. Sometimes this means that the last item with the ordered and desired color is picked just before your order. The procedure is that the next item will be picked and that's often a different color. This process can't be manipulated by us, so that's why we mention it before you place an order with us.

Messages will be answered Monday - Friday, from 9 - 17 CET (Central European Time). Messages about your order will be answered via the Discogs order page only. It may take up to two business days for us to respond.

We sell records in various stores. We try to keep everything updated on a daily basis, but sometimes we can't keep up with orders and an item might not be longer in stock, in spite of being still listed. Please keep this in mind, we doing our best but it could happen items needs to be delivered by our distributors, which can take between a few days and a few weeks. In case of orders with multiple items, we do our best to deliver them all. If one or more items take too long to receive from our distributors, orders will be shipped without the unavailable items and a refund for the missing items will be done accordingly. This is an automated process.

We collect orders in order to be able to get higher discounts on the shipping prices. Those lower shipping prices are already being used, we always do our best to give you the lowest price possible. Normally we ship all the packages all at once, at least once a week. But often enough smaller batches are being shipped during business days too, it all has to do with the minimum amount of packages to send, to get shipping cost discounts. Please note that it can take up to 7 business days to ship an order.

It's not possible to cancel after an order has been paid. This is because of the automated process from order and payment to delivery. That also counts for the situation where bought items are out of stock and ordered in back order with buyers agreement. In this specific situation, those items in back order can be cancelled though.

The buyer is responsibly for checking if the right order was made, especially if the right format has been chosen. There seems to be confusion about formats being ordered sometimes, so please check it yourself. It's better to not pay immediately and to ask us first if you are unsure about the format of ordered items. Wrongly ordered items which have been delivered, can be returned according to our Return Policy.

We are not liable for refunds if items aren’t sent tracked.

You must provide us with complete and accurate delivery address information. We use the address you filled in on Discogs so make sure it is correct. When paying through Paypal, we use the address from your Paypal payment, as Paypal expects us to do. You can add multiple addresses to your Paypal account, so you should add the correct address first, before payment is made.

We cannot be liable for the delivery of your order to the wrong address as a result of you supplying us with incomplete, different or inaccurate information.

PO Box / Postbox / Postbus / Packingstation
Because of our contracts with delivery companies, packages can't be delivered to a PO Box.

Errors in Zip Codes
A growing number of users mistakenly adds letters to their zip code because they think it helps the delivery.
This is not the case, it even delays shipment from our side, and possibly an error in delivery.
If your zip code is non-official, we are not responsible for delays in shipments and errors in delivery.

This is a good oversight of the official format of your countries' zip code:
