We at have far and away the most generous "combining" policy of any auction on the entire planet (and likely the entire universe too)! Both U.S. and non-U.S. customers can now combine EIGHT weeks of winnings (a staggering 25 auctions worth, with around 20,000 individual auctions to chose from in that time) with us combining the items as much as possible into as few packages and tubes as possible (without damaging anything).

Note that unless you SOLELY collect "flat" sizes, or SOLELY collect "rolled" sizes, then you will almost surely have one "flat" Pay and Hold order and one "rolled" Pay and Hold order going at all times if you are in the Pay and Hold program, because "flat" orders and "rolled" orders can rarely ever be combined.

Also not that if ALL the items in your "rolled" Pay and Hold order had "flat rate" shipping (of $12 or $8) then your entire 8 weeks of Pay and Hold orders will get that same flat rate charge, but if you also bought any "actual cost" items, then that switches that order to "actual cost of shipping" (which means you need to pay the actual cost of shipping, plus $3 for packing materials).


The two rules are these:

1) ALL our customers need to know that they can't request shipping quotes until they are truly ready for a package to be sent to them, and that ONCE THEY DO REQUEST THE QUOTES, THEIR PACKAGE CAN'T BE OPENED TO ADD IN ADDITIONAL PURCHASES. This means that if you think there is ANY chance you might be doing some additional bidding with us, then DON'T request a quote!

2) ALL our customers in our Pay and Hold program need to know that once their EIGHT weeks are up (8 weeks since their oldest purchase) we CAN'T add any later purchases in with that order (purchases made AFTER the 8 weeks are up need to go into the next Pay and Hold order).

Why do we need this? Because while it may seem like "no big deal" for us to open up ONE package, add one or more posters and re-seal it and re-quote it, it actually IS a very big deal, because we get this request at least a dozen times every day!

By no longer doing this for ANYONE, it means EVERYONE'S orders will be sent far more quickly, and besides, you KNOW you will almost surely be buying more from us later on, so that those "additional purchase" can just be the first items in your next package, rather than the last ones in the old package!

So please remember! Don't request ANY shipping quotes until you are truly ready for your package to be sent to you (and DON'T ask to add any further items in after that time) and don't ask us to include any items past 8 weeks, and please try to be understanding of why we need to have this policy, so that we can send all the orders far more quickly.

BUT BECAUSE I KNOW THERE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE A VERY FEW PEOPLE WHO ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THOSE EXTRA ITEMS INCLUDED, I AM ADDING A SPECIAL "$15 RE-PACKAGING FEE". If you somehow ABSOLUTELY need your package repacked because of a few items being added, solely from the very next week), then we WILL do so, but you MUST pay the additional $15 re-packaging fee.
