Payment Information For New Buyers
Last updated on October 14th, 2013

Greetings!  You are reading this either because you have never purchased from before, or it has been some time since your last purchase. 

We have found that following an exact procedure allows us to fill orders extremely quickly (almost all are sent within two business days of our receipt of payment). 

You should have received an e-mail telling you exactly how much you need to send (if you did not, please Contact Us and say "I never received payment details"), which is the sum the purchase price(s) of your item(s), plus shipping (if you live outside the U.S., there won't be a specific shipping price as we must quote the cost of shipping; see below for more details).

Here are quick links to what you will find on this page:

Where/How do you send payment?

  • We accept all major credits card and PayPal for most orders in our Checkout system, and this is the best option to use as it streamlines your order.
  • We also accept all major credit cards, either directly over the phone at 1-417-256-9616 during regular our business hours which are Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5 PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch, or you can e-mail us payment details, and there are still a few people who fax us at 1-417-257-6948!
  • PayPal is integrated in our Checkout for most orders or you may pay manually to "". Here are step-by-step instructions if you need help paying manually with PayPal.
  • You can send a check or money order (if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
    Bruce Hershenson
    Attn: Payments
    P.O. Box 874
    West Plains, MO 65775
  • If it is your best payment option, you can pay by Western Union (unlike SOME auction sites, we are not prejudiced against Western Union!).  But please don't send cash (as we can't be responsible for lost cash)!

What if I have ordered before? If you've ordered from in the past via credit card (and it hasn't expired) and you can't our checkout for some reason, then we have your credit card and address info on file. As long as you want to use the same card, you can just reply to our winning bid e-mail, and add, "Put this on my card you have on file and send it right out" (if you have multiple items, please state that as well) and we will ship it to you (usually within 2 business days).

Non-U.S. Customers: How to get a shipping quote for your order.

All non-U.S. customers need to pay the actual cost of sending your order, plus $4, for both the best packaging materials you have ever seen and a separate printed invoice mailed to you.

If you have already won in our auctions, you need to request a shipping quote before we will pack up your order.

Save money on shipping with our Pay and Hold Program

Our "Pay and Hold Program" will save you money on shipping by allowing you to combine purchases into as few packages as possible for a lower overall shipping fee. Here is how it works:

  1. Enroll by sending us an e-mail or telling us on the phone
  2. Pay the winning bid amounts for your purchase(s) within one week
  3. Continue bidding and paying for purchases
    NOTE: U.S. customers can do this for UP TO 4 WEEKS; non-U.S. customers can do this for UP TO 8 WEEKS.
  4. After 4 or 8 weeks, you need to request a shipping quote and then we will pack up your order and e-mail shipping quotes to you
  5. You need to pay us for that shipping within one week of receiving the e-mail
  6. We ship all your Pay and Hold purchases, and the process can begin again!

Now this of course creates a LOT of extra work for us, but look at the great benefits! You are able to wait up to FOUR (U.S. customers) or EIGHT (non-U.S. customers) weeks for us to ship items to you, and since we have THREE auctions per week, you will be able to combine your purchases from a total of TWELVE OR TWENTY-FOUR different auctions before they are sent! Of course we may still have to send more than one package to you (if you purchased both "rolled" and "flat" items during that that OR if the items won't all fit into a single package), but this "Pay and Hold" will surely save you LOTS of money in shipping costs (and we will gladly maintain two different Pay and Hold orders for you, one for rolled items, and one for flat items).
We know this results in a great decrease in shipping costs for all customers, and hundreds of our customers have already taken advantage of this!

How soon can I expect my order? 99% of orders go out within 2 or 3 business days of your payment being received. If you haven't received your purchase within 14 days of your mailing payment then please Contact Us or Call Us. Many buyers call us the fastest movie paper shipper online!

Auto-Ship Program If you are a regular customer (or think you will become a regular customer!), and you would like to get your orders more quickly, has a way that you can get your purchases sent more quickly through our "auto-ship" program. Those of you have a credit card on file with us and authorize us to send your purchases on a schedule without waiting for confirmation from you, will have your purchases sent FIRST on the time frame you tell us (every 1, 2, or 4 weeks, or 8 weeks for non-U.S. customers)! Send us an e-mail stating that you want to join the Autoship Program and authorize our charging your purchases as you make them and ship them automatically on the schedule you choose from the options we give, and we will enter you immediately. Of course you can quit the program any time, but we know you will find that it will save e-mails and get you your packages even quicker than before.

Do we combine shipping If at all possible, we WILL combine all of your purchases from up to three weeks no matter how many of our items you get in that three week period, which is our way of saying "thanks" to those who buy multiple items (and the shipping charges include full insurance on ALL U.S. orders)! BUT PLEASE KNOW THAT IF WE NEED TO SEND your three weeks of purchases in 2 or more separate packages, THEN YOU MUST PAY SHIPPING CHARGES FOR EACH ADDITIONAL PACKAGE).
    Note that we can not combine more than three weeks of purchases (we sell so much material that we end up "drowning" in unsent orders!).  So if we are holding previous purchases for you, then you MUST send payment for those purchases and these right now.
Thanks for your understanding of our need to send packages in a timely fashion!  If you have questions about shipping, please visit our Shipping and Payment Details page.

     NOTE THAT THE ABOVE COMBINING INFORMATION ONLY RELATES TO U.S. ORDERS. We have a special Pay and Hold option for non-U.S. orders (see above).

Thank you very much for purchasing from!  After you receive your purchase, we are sure you will be happy with your purchase, but if you are not 100% happy (for any reason), please Contact Us right away, and we'll do whatever it takes to make you happy!  Unlike many dealers, we sell to the same customers over and over, and we are able to do so because we describe our items well, wrap them well, and send them quickly.  We know you will agree once you have completed your purchase, and we hope to do more business with you in the future!
