Setting orders to Payment Received is a manual process in that I have to make certain that I received payment through Paypal first before I can set the order to Payment Received. I understand that you want to know if payment was received or not, but unless Paypal tells you I did not receive payment or you sent the payment to the wrong email address I will have received payment via Paypal. If you sent payment via Paypal and Discogs set the payment setting to payment pending the chances that I did NOT receive payment are just about nil so please STOP messaging me about whether or not I received payment.

A LOT of the used items that I am selling are probably in better condition then how I am rating the items. I err on the side of caution when grading used items and most of the used items that are being sold are not as graded as high as should be. I'd rather you the buyer is happy that you got a deal then argue with buyers about what how good of quality a particular item is. I strive to list ALL significant defects that I notice when listing the item for each item, so if there are NO listed defects and it's labeled Very Good Plus it's could very well be closer to Near Mint in condition. VG media condition for vinyl generally means that each side of the vinyl has more than ten scratch marks with minor pops.

ALL used titles are "Cleaned up" unless otherwise stated. What this means is that dust sleeves / cases are replaced, ALL non sealed items are placed in a plastic sleeve before being shipped to you. As for cleaning the actual media, in general I do NOT clean used media items UNLESS it's so extremely filthy to the point where I am not able to see the base condition of the media (number of scratch & scuff marks etc. etc.) in which case I'll clean it so that I can see the defects of the media in order to grade the media.

Concerning used cd's: I think that any cd that plays / rips without skipping is really in VG+/VG/G+ media condition. Cd's with skips are P for media, Cd's withOUT skips are VG+/VG/G+. CD's do NOT have hiss, pops, buzz and other forms of audio distortion (like vinyl, cassettes and other formats) so I think the G/F media ratings for CD's are redundant. However, do keep in mind that cd's that are listed as VG/G+ could very well stutter / pause while playing but you should be able to rip those cd's. I do not normally list cd's with a lot of scratches unless its rare(r), please do keep in mind that a G+ media ranking for a CD in my store means that it has a LOT of scratches. Additionally if I state the cd has the insert that means that it is not packaged in a jewel case. ALL cd's packaged in a jewel case that I am selling have the insert unless specified otherwise.

Concerning download cards with used vinyl titles - if you are hoping that a used vinyl title has the download card please do ask before ordering so that I can check if the download card is present. Unfortunately MOST used vinyl titles usually do NOT have the download card and even if record has the download card, chances are VERY good the code does NOT work anymore since it has already been used.

If you have any questions about whether or not an insert is present; what is the region for the DVD that is for sale; whether or not the cd has the special jewel case - ie specific questions about special features of an item PLEASE do ask in advance for clarification from me about your question for that item.

Please note: USED titles that have a NM listing for Media and / or Sleeve are items that I have on consignment that I am selling for the owner. Also keep in mind that these titles DO have a higher price.

The M/M, M/NM and M/VG+ titles are titles available through Stickfigure Distribution.

In regards to new vinyl releases I don't think it is proper to list a LOT of new vinyl titles as M/M due to the fact that a LOT of vinyl releases are not shrinkwrapped so as a result the cover does suffer some wear from shipping to Stickfigure. If it's stated that it is still sealed then it's probably M/M but even w/ sealed vinyl covers can still have creases, minor scuff marks and damaged corners from shipping to Stickfigure. However, with that being stated MOST of the titles marked M/NM you would probably consider to be M/M.

For CD titles, new items that are marked M/NM, M/VG+ were NOT sent to Stickfigure in shrinkwrap OR those cd titles are digipacks/cardboard sleeves/other packaging. Unfortunately it is difficult to keep CD titles that are NOT packaged in jewel cases in M/M condition when shipping to another location. It is easy for the packaging for CD's titles not packaged in jewel cases to suffer bent corners etc. etc. when shipping to Stickfigure.

I do NOT send photos for low value items. If it is less than $15 please do NOT bother about asking for photos of the item. Additionally, I do NOT send photos for NEW items.

I do NOT provide mp3's / digital files of the music from items. I do not have the time to do that as well as I do not have the proper gear to provide quality audio files.

I do NOT accept offers for items that you are NOT allowed to place offers for through Discogs. THIS is NON negotiable. Buyers who refuse to ACCEPT this policy will be BLOCKED. And here is some food for thought, if I was willing to accept offers on items I would raise my prices 25-50%. Sellers who accept offers for items are already charging more than they want. You are not "getting ahead" by trying to convince sellers to lower their prices.

If you decide to cancel your order that you paid via Paypal and you do NOT cover the Paypal fee (Paypal no longer refund sellers the Paypal fee for cancelled orders) you will be blocked.

All buyers who leave neutral / negative reviews BEFORE they contact Stickfigure about a problem with their order will be blocked. Stickfigure is just ONE person and mistakes do happen. If you're not willing to contact me to resolve the problem you will be blocked.

Please do NOT ask me about pressing numbers, when something was pressed etc. etc. I probably do NOT know unless I released the item. Please contact the label or whomever released the item about those questions. If you really have to ask somebody on Discogs about an item please ONLY contact the user who created the listing, not us sellers, we probably do NOT know the answer to your questions.

Stickfigure does sell other merchandise (T-shirts, patches and more) right here:

STORES - I DO sell direct wholesale, please do get in touch about wholesale rates for New titles

Orders ship on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays with the exceptions of days that the US Postal Service is closed for a holiday.

And finally, some information about Media Mail delays that I've learned from 20+ years of shipping Media Mail and discussing this issue with various anonymous employees at the Post Office. In general Media Mail runs pretty good except when it doesn't. A problem with Media Mail is that delivery time is NOT guaranteed. Media Mail that takes 30 days to arrive is NOT late. In general if you file a Media Mail missing mail request before it's been 30 days the Post Office will not look for your parcel until it's been 30 days. I think what happens is that IF your parcel gets delayed at a location (ie there wasn't enough room on the truck to ship everything that day), it can be delayed for a while (up to 3-4 weeks) because the Post Office does NOT delay new Media Mail for delayed Media Mail. IMO what the Post Office does is they ship the new Media Mail parcels received every day and the delayed mail waits until there is room on the truck to ship with the new Media Mail parcels or until the delayed mail has been sitting for a couple of weeks. I think the Post Office does this because if you delay all the mail than the amount of complaints that are received increases exponentially. However, after writing ALL of the above, I have shipped Media Mail parcels that did not receive ONE scan UNTIL being delivered so it is possible that one never really knows where a "missing" Media Mail parcel is exactly until it has been delivered. This is an old issue that predates the pandemic by many years. Additionally my local post office station a lot of times does NOT scan parcels as being accepted so there are parcels - especially media mail - that do become "missing" for 3-4+ weeks every couple of months :-( However, just to be clear, the Postal Service has only lost 1 Media Mail parcel that I have shipped in the past 20+ years and that wasn't their fault, the Address Verification Service of my postage provider "corrected" the address to the wrong address :-(
