We ship to any country in the world and we generally use Canada post lettermail. For local mail within Canada, we charge $0.85; for U.S, we charge $1.20 and for foreign mail we charge $2.50. These are Canada Post's current rates for a standard letter weighing 30 grams or less. We will combine shipping on all orders and generally, we do not increase the shipping charges for mail falling into the next weight step. So, you can purchase with peace of mind, knowing that your shipping costs will not increase.
It is our experience that the postal system is extremely reliable. We have concluded over 10,000 transactions since we started on e-bay in 2010, and we can recall fewer than 10 instances in which we had to refund buyers due to non-receipt. It is therefore our opinion that registered mail is simply not worth the additional expense. We find that sending most items in #10 envelopes, with no markings or unusual stamps is the safest way to avoid attracting attention to items in the postal system. Consequently, we use regular, current stamps on our mail and do not, as a general rule, use old stamps. If you want us to use old commemorative stamps on our mailings, we will be pleased to do so, provided you let us know when you place your order. Should you wish us to register your items, please let us know and we will add a flat $10 fee to your invoice for local registration and $20 for foreign buyers.
While the postal system is reliable, it is not always quick. We have found that for some U.S. customers, your shipments can take as long as 3 weeks to reach you, and for most foreign destinations the mail takes 2-3 weeks. We would therefore suggest that you allow those times to elapse before contacting us to let us know that you have not received your item. We will respond in every case and work with you to ensure your satisfaction.
