Seller Terms

Automatic Cancellation Policy: Orders will be cancelled if payment is not received within 6 days.

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

We are based in Switzerland and serve customers all over the world. RadioFlavia is a small family hobby business. We are in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland a short distance from Italian border. We ship only using SwissPost. Switzerland is not a part of the EU so there maybe custom taxes that depend upon the country you live in.

We ship SwissPost, in professional padded shippers and sleeves (cost us 1 chf in packaging). If you need tracking ask and pay for priority shipping. If a postal service loses your order, please do not blame us. We are honest and considerate.

Shipping internationally can take anywhere from 1 week to 4 weeks, please be patient as we have no control over when packages get held up in customs!

We pack in a Japanese sleeves for protection.

You can pay for your order with PayPal.

Buyers will be charged VAT.

We have an automatic cancellation setting on our account, if you do not pay for your order in 5 days, it will be cancelled. If for whatever reason your payment is delayed, please let us know in advance when it'll be coming our way.

Double CDs count as 2 records.

Buyers are responsible for all customs fees!

We only ship to the address in your Discogs profile! If you want an order shipped to a different address, please change the address in your Discogs profile BEFORE you place an order. Do not write an alternate address in the additional instructions box or in the messages, we are only going to look at the Discogs profile address and send it there. Thank you!

We take great care in packing the discs, but we do recommend that you purchase insurance on more expensive discs as we cannot be held responsible for postal workers' poor handling.


If you are unsatisfied with the condition of your record(s) please contact us before you leave negative feedback. There is probably a good chance we can work something out without you having to leave feedback that will negatively impact our business. Thank you! Refunds always require you shipping back the records.

As there is some variation on how Discogs users interpret the grading system, here is how we grade our CDs.

NM: While not sealed, the record looks and sounds like it most likely has never been played, or was played once or twice at most. The record has no visible marks or scratches, and it is on the whole an almost flawless copy.

VG+: VG+ means very, VERY little to no surface noise. A VG+ record may be close to NM (one or two marks or scuffs preventing it from receiving a NM grade) or may just be a very clean copy all around with minor imperfections. A VG+ can have slight storage warping or dishing but these qualities will be mentioned in the item’s description. Once again, a VG+ CD has very, VERY little to no surface noise. Jewel Cases if marked VG+ have normal scuffs and wear but no cracks.

VG: VG is broken down into two categories: SOLID and STRONG. A SOLID VG copy has audible surface noise but is still very playable/listenable (anything that truly intrudes on the listening experience or prevents a record from being played by a DJ will automatically put it in the G+/G range). A SOLID VG copy will have noticeable marks/scratches/scuffs and generally look like it has been played a bit. A STRONG VG copy, on the other hand, has very light surface noise which at times is barely audible but is there nonetheless, which prevents the record from receiving a VG+ grade. A STRONG VG copy will not have as many marks as a SOLID VG copy and will on the whole be close to a VG+ grading.

G+/G: Records in this category have intrusive surface noise but are still very playable and listenable. However, there will be many signs of wear, from visible scratches, marks, and scuffs to vinyl crackle. G+/G is also broken down into SOLID and STRONG. A STRONG G+ may be close to VG but has just a bit too much surface noise to fall into that category. A SOLID G+ plays through but has significant surface noise

RADIO FLAVIA Sells without including any duty. We are worldwide sellers and cannot handle the importing rules for every country in the world.

The Buyer is therefore responsible for all costs associated with Importing which may include Import Fees, Value Added Tax (VAT) and/or Custom Charges and all other charges which your Country may impose on an import from Switzerland.

Additionally, unless you purchase shipping Insurance, you accept the risk of loss of or damage to the goods.

Swiss Sales Include VAT on both the Item's Price and Shipping.
