Introduction to Autoship

  1. You keep a credit card on file with us.
  2. You authorize us to charge and send your purchases on a specified schedule without waiting for confirmation from you.
  3. We will send your purchases FIRST each week, usually on each Monday, Wednesday, & Friday morning right after the auctions close!
  4. You can quit the program any time, but we know you will find that it will save time and get you your packages even quicker.

Autoship Shipment Options. You can pick one of three great options:

1) You can sign up for "One Week Autoship". This means that we will wait for a total of THREE sets of auctions to be completed before sending your purchases. For example, if you purchase on a Tuesday, then we will wait until the following Monday, and then ship your purchases from that previous Tuesday, but also combine in (if possible) your purchases from the following Thursday and Sunday (if you purchased anything from either of those). If you know on Wednesday that you won't bid on any of the Thursday or Sunday items, then you can email us and we will send your Tuesday purchases on Wednesday. Note that we will wait to charge you for your purchases until after the one week is up, and you MUST have a valid credit card on file to sign up for "One Week Autoship".

2) You can sign up for "Two Week Autoship". This means that we will wait for a total of SIX sets of auctions before sending your purchases. For example, if you purchase on a Tuesday, then we will wait until a week from the following Monday, and then ship your purchases from that Tuesday, but also combine in (if possible) your purchases from the following five auctions (if you purchased anything from any of those). If you know at any point that you won't bid on any more of those auctions, then you can email us and we will send your original Tuesday purchases when you email us. Note that we will charge you for each set of your purchases the day after each set is completed, and then charge you for shipping after the two weeks is up, and you MUST have a valid credit card on file to sign up for "Two Week Autoship".

3) You can sign up for "Three Week Autoship". This means that we will wait for a total of NINE sets of auctions before sending your purchases. For example, if you purchase on a Tuesday, then we will wait until two weeks from the following Monday, and then ship your purchases from that Tuesday, but also combine in (if possible) your purchases from the following eight auctions (if you purchased anything from any of those). If you know at any point that you won't bid on any more of those auctions, then you can email us and we will send your original Tuesday purchases when you email us. Note that we will charge you for each set of your purchases the day after each set is completed, and then charge you for shipping after the three weeks is up, and you MUST have a valid credit card on file to sign up for "Three Week Autoship".

4) ONLY IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE U.S., you can sign up for "Six Week Autoship". This means that we will wait for a total of EIGHTEEN sets of auctions before sending your purchases. For example, if you purchase on a Tuesday, then we will wait until five weeks from the following Monday, and then ship your purchases from that Tuesday, but also combine in (if possible) your purchases from the following 17 auctions (if you purchased anything from any of those). If you know at any point that you won't bid on any more of those auctions, then you can email us and we will send your original Tuesday purchases when you email us. Note that we will charge you for each set of your purchases the day after each set is completed, and then charge you for shipping after the six weeks is up, and you MUST have a valid credit card on file to sign up for "Six Week Autoship".

If you don't want to leave a credit card on file with us (and remember we ONLY store those numbers on OUR computers, and nowhere on the Internet), then you CAN'T be in this Autoship program, but you can either pay for your purchases as you make them, or you can join our "Pay and Hold" program.

Sign Me Up for Autoship!

Ready to join? Follow these two steps:

  1. Add a credit card to your account (or verify you already have one on file) by going to our credit card page.
  2. Then email us via our Contact Form and tell us three things:
    1. State "I want to join Autoship"
    2. Specify ONLY the last four digits of the card you want us to charge
    3. Specify from the choices above how often you wish us to ship your orders. That's it!

How our Pay and Hold works:

HOW DOES IT WORK?
After you win items, you pay the subtotal for your purchases (excluding shipping) within one week of the auction(s)' closing. You may then repeat the process for a time frame (three weeks for U.S. customers or six weeks for non-U.S. customers), and we will hold those orders in our warehouse until the end of that time frame! After the three or six weeks (or at your request, whichever comes first), we will send you a shipping quote on all of those purchases, and since you will have already paid for the posters themselves, you will just need to pay your choice from the quoted cost of shipping within one week of receiving the email, at which time we will send your purchases out to you, and the process can begin again!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? You are able to wait up to three or six weeks for us to ship items to you, and since we have THREE auctions per week, you will be able to combine purchases from a total of nine to eighteen different auctions and only pay shipping for the fewest number of packages possible for all the items (typically, one or two packages), resulting in a huge savings on the shipping costs.

CAN THE PAYMENTS BE AUTOMATIC? By default, you pay for "Pay and Hold" orders via our Checkout (using credit card or PayPal). But you may also join our "Autoship" program as described above.

SURELY THERE IS A CATCH! The only catch is that we may have to send you two or more packages instead of just one (which is much better than up to 18 packages!), and this is likely only if you purchased both "rolled" and "flat" items during that three or six weeks. This "pay and hold" program almost always results in far fewer packages and in far less shipping expenses.

WANT TO USE IT? Great! Just use our Checkout and choose the "Pay Now & Ship Later" option for your order. The Checkout will show you if your Pay and Hold is due and it will give you all the appropriate options available to you!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why do non-U.S. customers get six weeks for "autoship" and "pay and hold", while those in the U.S. only get three weeks?
A.
Because shipping charges to non-U.S. countries is much greater than within the U.S., and we have a limited amount of space in our warehouse for unshipped orders. But by using either of the above programs non-U.S. customers (especially frequent buyers) can save a HUGE amount on shipping.

Q. What about different kinds of packages (flat, rolled, linen)?
A.
We DO maintain separate "Autoship" and "Pay and Hold" orders for each type of shipment. This means, for example, when you win items that ship in flat packages, we set your "ship date" for that separately from items that ship rolled in tubes (and likewise for linenbacked items because we discourage combining linens with non-linens due to the chance of damage to the non-linens).
