- No returns/refunds on
certain items, such as software and other media. Check the
item description to be sure.
- Buyer pays all shipping costs unless otherwise
specified in the item listing.
- I usually offer shipping
tracking using either Canada
Post or UPS Standard service. I also offer shipping options
WITHOUT tracking at a lower cost which you may choose at your
discretion. However, I strongly
recommend you choose a shipping option with tracking for your
own peace of mind.
Shipping methods with tracking typically get your package to
you faster anyway. If you don't see the shipping method you
prefer on the shipping tab, please ask for a quote in advance.
- Regular weight (66 pounds and under) / size items
- Canada Post shipping options with and without
tracking within Canada
and to the U.S.A. can be found here.
- Canada Post Xpresspost
(domestic) and Xpresspost U.S.A.
(both with tracking) are similar to USPS
Global Express Mail in the United States. These
significantly cheaper than UPS and provide a quick shipping
method compared to the standard parcel service. Check the
delivery time information below for comparison.
- Other options may be available - check the
shipping tab on the item for details. For example, Canada
Regular Parcel (Canada) and Expedited Parcel USA (USA) services both
offer tracking at a lower cost and longer delivery time.
- I also ship outside of North
America via Canada Post International Parcel Air service - please check
the shipping tab for cost to your location. Note that this method
does not include tracking. If you wish to have tracking on an
international shipment, Xpresspost International can be used, however,
the cost is significantly higher. Please use the shipping
calculator on the shipping tab for comparison.

to the USA is somewhat more
expensive than vice versa or U.S.A to U.S.A.
- When possible, I will ship
multiple items won
together to save on shipping. Depending on the
increased weight/size, additional shipping charges may be incurred,
however, this will almost always be less than the individual shipping
charges. Let me know in advance if you plan to purchase
multiple items and I can combine them for you. If you don't
notify me in advance and you win multiple items, please wait until you
receive an invoice from me with the adjusted shipping amount for the
- Delivery time:
- All items are normally shipped next
business day, especially big items because of the extra packing
or crating required to ensure your item arrives in good condition.
- If payment is received by 12:00 pm my time
(Mountain Standard / Mountain Daylight time zone), I make every effort
to get your item to the post office by the 4 pm pickup deadline.
- Canada Post delivery times for different
services can be found here.
- PLEASE NOTE: when given the option, if you
choose the lowest cost shipping method for international shipments (and
international shipping can be expensive, so I don't blame you), it can
take quite some time to receive your shipment. For example, a
light envelope of a few CDs took 9 weeks from Canada to Australia via
international surface shipping. The equivalent airmail shipping
is only a few weeks. Be aware that the shipment can be delayed
further in customs when arriving in your country. If you have the
time and don't mind the wait, then international surface shipping can
be a good choice but please be aware that tracking is not available on
this service and there is nothing that either you or I can do to
investigate the delay. However, if you want the item sooner, it
will cost a bit more for airmail service, and usually with tracking
- Local taxes, import fees,
import duty, and insurance:
- Any local taxes, import
fees, or import duty, are to be paid by
- Please do not ask me to
place incorrect information on customs
forms such as a lower value than the auction closing price - I won't do
it. I am honest and expect you to be too.
- All items are shipped with
default carrier insurance coverage. For example, Xpresspost shipments
are insured to a maximum value of CDN$100. If you wish to purchase
additional insurance, please advise before your payment is made.
Otherwise, your payment will be considered final for default shipping
- Local pickup / freight carrier
stated in the item description, these items must be picked up locally.
Alternatively, the buyer may use a shipping company of
choice and paid for directly by the buyer to pick up the item.
Items which require palletization or crating must be done so
the buyers shipping company or designate. I do not have the
ability to do this myself. Such items are to be picked up at
residential address and therefore no loading dock is available.
- I will leave positive feedback
if the transaction is smooth and
prompt but also in cases where reasonable delays are incurred.
- I reserve the right to
determine what is reasonable and what is
- Only in rare cases will
negative feedback be issued (no show
bidders, non-payment, etc.)
- My eBay philosophy is simple:
be fair and truthful. I
expect the same of you.
- I will do my best to describe
and/or test the items prior to
listing. If you have any questions, please ask before bidding.
- I won't sell anything that I
would not be satisfied receiving
myself - period.

after all, I want to receive
positive feedback :-)
Good luck and
