SHIPPING DISCOUNTS! (updated September 6, 2015)
If your order subtotal is $35 or more...
• U.S. Domestic buyers get FREE Media Mail shipping (upgraded to First-Class if possible) or $3.00 off Priority.
If the invoice is automatic (not manually issued by us), discounts will be refunded after the invoice is paid.
GENERAL SHIPPING INFO (updated September 6, 2015):
• We package and ship our 45s to ensure they arrive in the best possible condition. We maintain a 100% unbroken record (heh) of shipping records without any damage whatsoever.
• We use the very sturdy standard box record mailers as a rule, and only reuse such mailers (one time only) if they are in great shape (it's how we keep shipping prices down).
• We also place each 45 in a plastic sleeve, add at least two layers of stiffeners and at least one layer of bubble wrap to every package.
• Last, we affix a sticker to the outside reading "Fragile - Heat Sensitive Contents - Do Not Leave in Direct Sunlight!!".
SHIPPING PRICES (updated March 15, 2016 - First Class goes up to 15.99 oz. now):
Note: Shipping prices are based on postage, packaging costs and related handling expenses. As our shipping prices are carefully calibrated to be minimal and fair, they are non-negotiable. However, we are happy to answer any question you may have about them.
- U.S. Domestic:
• USPS First-Class (includes tracking):
$3.49 for 1 or 2 45s, $3.99 for 3 or more 45s up to 15.99 oz.
* USPS Media Mail (includes tracking):
$3.99 for any number of 45s (depending on shipping box availability)
FREE Media Mail shipping if your order subtotal is $35 or more (no matter how many shipping boxes it takes; upgraded to First-Class if possible)
• Priority Mail (1-biz-day turnaround, includes tracking) is USPS postage quote plus $2.
$3 off Priority Mail shipping if your order subtotal is $35 or more
Extra Security Option: All Priority Mail shipments of 1-2 45s are shipped with a bubble-padded envelope containing a standard record mailer with its own stiffeners and bubble wrap on the inside.
ORDER & PAYMENT INFO:
How to pay.
• PayPal: With PayPal, you can pay directly with PayPal funds, use a credit/debit card, or issue an eCheck (note: time of payment re: handling for shipping is considered to be when the eCheck clears).
• Cashier's Check/Money Order: Please inform us with a message on the order page if you intend to pay using this method. Money orders must be issued by USPS or Western Union only!
When to pay. Invoices must be paid within 7 days of the order, unless you have contacted us and we agree to a longer period. If no payment is received or no payment arrangements are made within 7 days of the order, the order will be canceled, and any payments made after the cancellation will be refunded. Ordinarily we will not contact you to remind you to pay for your purchase.
Order total >=$100? Orders totaling $100 or more are invoiced manually. For these orders, if you have fewer than 10 positive ratings or an overall rating under 90%, you may be asked to pay for insurance and/or some form of guaranteed delivery. If you think this applies to you, please inquire about this before you order. (Note: this policy also applies to multiple orders made around the same time that would naturally be combined.)
Ordering >10 45s? Orders of over 10 45s may have to be split into separate shipping bunches of 10 or fewer, and these will be shipped in separate packages with their own shipping prices. We require this due to the structural limitations of record mailers. Sometimes we may have a larger sturdy box that can accommodate more than 10, but please inquire in advance about that. Reminder for U.S. domestic buyers: If your order subtotal is $35 or more, we'll ship via Media Mail for FREE no matter how many boxes its takes.
Combining separate orders. If you wish to combine shipments from separate orders, we will do so only for orders made within a 7-day period unless we have approved a request you make to extend this period.
Shipping address confirmation. If you have a shipping address that isn't confirmed by PayPal, or your Discogs and PayPal addresses don't match, we may require some form of written confirmation by you before we ship. Handling time may be extended as necessary to accommodate this.
Alternative shipping address. We do not ship to addresses not provided in your PayPal or Discogs accounts.
Registered shipments. If you want your order to be shipped by registered mail, please contact us before you order to get a shipping price quote, which will include the registered mail fee and possible extra packaging costs. Any order sent this way must be invoiced manually.
We reserve the right in special cases to modify or cancel an order that we feel is financially risky. For instance, if a buyer without any feedback places a very expensive order, they should expect that we will request additional funds to cover insurance and/or some form of guaranteed delivery. If you think that your order may appear to be "high risk" in any way, it's best to contact us before you complete your order. We'll be happy to work with you.
