Payment and Postage
Paypal is accepted and I do not add a surcharge to cover their fees. UK buyers
only may also pay by cheque or postal order. If it's a cheque, please allow 7
to 10 days for it to clear. It may be possible for overseas customers to pay by
another means, such as bank transfer, by arrangement.
All buyers please make contact within 3 days of auction. Payment is required
within 7 days.
All non-paying bidders are, without exception, reported to eBay. This is not
for the sake of being vindictive, but because eBay charges retrospective fees
calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be
retrieved. Believe me it is hard enough to make ends meet on here as it is!
Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to eBay's policy on non-payment
for more information, including its ramifications for the bidder. If you have
any doubts, please do ask before bidding.
Condition of items
Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for
vintage/antique objects and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in
the same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured
that I always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the
item's condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.
Vintage electrical items
Unless clearly stated otherwise in the description, vintage electrical items
are sold in their original condition so should always be safety checked by a
qualified electrician before use.
Returns are possible, if reported within 7 days and by prior arrangement, if a
mistake has been made in the listing and the item is not as described, but for
no other reason.
