OZ post increments are per 500gm !!, and the 2nd LP just doubles the post cost of the 1st lp BUT !! the third one fits for no extra to that) Increments over 1kg go up per 1kg increment

Australia $3 billed as GBP1.85 (pay in AUD if australian)
Asia GBP 4.50 with jewelcase (250 gm letter) -------------GBP 2.80 without jewelcase (125gm letter)
USA GBP 6.80 with jewelcase (250 gm letter) -------------GBP 4.50 without jewelcase (125gm letter)
Europe GBP 6.80 with jewelcase (250 gm letter) -------------GBP 4.50 without jewelcase (125gm letter)

ALL 250gm letters QUOTED assuming jewelcase included, but I will definitely consider requests for artwork and cd only mailing. (can get 3 in for the price of 1 that way, but valuable jewelcases specific to MFSL or EARLY pre 1990 regular issues are harder to replace cheaper than the postage saving if not sent !
Single cd's purchased and sent WITHOUT JEWELCASE are quoted as the 125gm air mail letter, therefore post rate is cheaper. Single Cd WITH JEWELCASE aimail letter is now 250gm packed, (which could also still be 3cd's and artwork without jewelcases ) PLEASE ASK FOR QUOTE

Postage for CD's quoted as AIR LETTER, otherwise expensive post rates as parcels are incurred above 500gm or thicker than 20mm.


Postage cost from and within Australia are very expensive upto 2kg (Makes cheap LP's very uneconomical), but once a parcel is over 2kg, overseas postage is only 4gbp (7aud) per EXTRA kilo added to the first 2kg while within australia thats only $2.25 per extra kilo. BUY BULK PAYS in terms of postage cost, and I do negotiate on purchase price as well for BULK Purchases (over 4 items)
Australian buyers may pay in converted AUD .
Also Australian buyers can pay by direct credit, but I can't get the discogs settings to accept my CBA bank branch no. , so ask and I shall send it if making a purchase.

Best way to get the cost down on LP's is to put more than one in a post box, 1st Lp cost to post is very high, but additional LP's are cost effective. Once over 2kg, post rate is half price on the excess. I regularly send large packs to JAPAN (6kg=25 LP's @ $100aud which is only $4 per LP. where as 1LP on it's own is $15 or even higher outside Asia (Oh dear !)

SPECIAL NOTE GERMANY !! I do not ship AUDIOPHILE records and cd's (MFSL direct disc or half speed masters etc) to GERMANY without TRACKING and INSURANCE Paid for by Buyers. If you are wanting delivery to Germany email me first for costs, as TRACKING IS VERY expensive to that destination. (SORRY This is due to one reseller buying limited edition numbered items off me then relisting it on a private web site, while claiming he never recieved it.......)

All other Countries basic registration and insurance required for all sales over 100GBP.

Standard mail costs for packages under 100GBP, optional registration and insurance at buyers request under 100gbp.

If there is import duty in your country, it is your responsibility to pay it, for INSURANCE reasons, I will NOT underdeclare the customs declaration value, (Germany, read that VERY carefully!! It will be tracked ,insured and declared at full value..........)

All prices quoted INCLUDE $2Aud (LP's) or $0.40c Aud (CD's) equivalent for cost of custom made mailerbox and for LP's, protective card liners (Buyer pays cost price of Australia Post + $2AUD or $0.40)
All quotes are BASIC ( no tracking) Air Mail and converted to GBP, (paypal exch rate 1GBP =1.75AUD as at 28th January 2018) Any massive shift in that since updating on that day will be reflected in invoice sent

RETURN POSTAGE POLICY I have never had an item requested to be returned, but due to a friend's experience on discogs where a buyer wanted to return the item, because he had not specified it, my friend (the seller) had to pay return postage according to DISCOGS , because he hadn't specified it as the customer (buyers) responsibility,.
So !!! in the so far never experienced occasion where a customer wants to return the item, unless I say otherwise, The customer has to pay all postage, at the same level of postage it was sent to them (economy, registered, tracked, or express etc etc) Apparently if I don't specify the above it is always at my expense regardless of the REASON for the return and refund.
By the way also unless I agree, refund of returns does NOT include the original postage cost to get to the customer (fair cop if I have unintentionally listed an item not as specified in the database), but if you just want your money back as a refund without GOOD specific reason, the postage cost should not be at MY expense. Sound reasonable ? if not then don't buy it !!
