Did you know... that people can't request shipping quotes until they are truly ready for a package to be sent to them?

We have far and away the most generous "combining" policy of any auction we know of! U.S. customers can combine three weeks of winnings (seven to eight auctions worth, with around 7,000 items to chose from in that time) and still just pay our low "flat rate" shipping price, with us combining the items as much as possible into as few packages as possible.

Non-U.S. customers can combine six weeks of winnings (15 auctions worth, with around 12,500 items to chose from in that time), and we charge them the actual cost of shipping, plus $3 for packing materials. We give non-U.S. customers the extra time because their shipping rates are usually much higher than within the U.S.

In October 2012, we updated our invoicing system so that shipping quotes (on many non-U.S. packages, and on "actual cost" U.S. packages) can be viewed online through our "online checkout", and we email you when they are ready. That will greatly speed up our ability to fill and send those orders.


This improvement is to make certain all our customers 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 you might be doing some additional bidding with us, then DON'T request a quote! 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, 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 "additional purchase" can just be the first item in your next package, rather than the last one 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 please try to be understanding of why we need to have this policy, so that we can send all the orders far more quickly.
