Seller Terms

Payment is due within four days of invoice.

Our current post office drop-off schedule is generally Monday, Wednesday, and Friday only. Due to the pandemic, postal delays worldwide may slow arrival of your package. Thank you in advance for your patience

US Shipping: shipping charges should be automatically calculated.

All US shipping includes Delivery Confirmation. Priority Mail, Express Mail, and insurance are all available on request—but please request before paying any automatically generated invoice.

International Shipping:Currently, we only ship to international destinations which offer door-to-door tracking from the US. Shipping charges should be automatically calculated, but due to the limitations of Discogs new shipping calculator, mixed orders (LPs + 7"s or CDs, box sets, etc.) may be misquoted. Please do not pay for your order immediately but rather contact me for an exact shipping charge. Similarly, large (6 items or more) or especially heavy orders may show an inaccurate shipping amount. Again, please just wait for me to provide an accurate quote.

Unfortunately, international shipping from the USA is expensive. But in most cases, two records (or CDs) will ship at the same price as one.

LP Shipping: All LPs are shipped in mailers made specifically for vinyl with additional cardboard padding. To prevent seam splits, the vinyl in its inner sleeve will be placed outside of the cover.

Sealed Records: Upon request, I will open a sealed record for the buyer once payment has been made but before sending it. If there is any problem (such as a warp), we will work it out or agree to cancel the order. But if the record is sent to the buyer sealed, it is purchased "as-is" and it can only be returned at the buyer's expense in still sealed condition.

LP Inners & Inserts: If a printed inner sleeve or insert (poster, booklet, etc.) is present in a particular album, it will be noted in my description. An absence of original inner sleeve or insert will not be noted. If an inner or insert is important to your purchase, please confirm with me before purchase.

CD or Cassette Cases: CD or tape cases are easily replaceable by the buyer if so desired and are not considered in grading.
