Seller's Shipping Information

Firstly, I live in Victoria, BC, Canada, and I know of a few other sellers who live in Victoria as well. Please check these stores out as well if you're looking for cool stuff to add to your order.

Ships from Victoria, BC, Canada. Buyer pays shipping, I will combine items to save on shipping, and I'm more than willing to decase items to save on shipping or fulfill a specific customer request.
I charge the cheapest shipping I possibly can, and I do not make the buyers pay for supplies/seller fees through my shipping charge. What I pay the post office, you pay me. Because of these tight margins, I'd rather not waste time, energy and resources on needlessly cheap orders.
All my items for sale you can make offers on - however I will usually deny low-ballers unless they're purchasing multiple items. I do list a lot of items without sales histories or accurate pricing references, though, and for these I'll almost always entertain offers.
All items are shipped via Canada Post - please be advised of the limitations that Canada Post has in comparison to UPS, Royal Mail and other more prominent shipping services on the global market. This means that tracked shipping for international orders are VERY expensive and usually not worth the money.

Here's a rough list of shipping estimates for Canada, the US and frequent international locations I ship to.
All prices are in CAD.

Canada
1CD via Letterpost:
2 dollars without jewel case.
4 dollars with jewel case.
Multiple CDs (up to 4) can be shipped for 4 dollars without the jewel case using Letterpost. Only 1 CD with the jewel case may be shipped using Letterpost.
This method does not include tracking.
These rates roughly apply to cassettes, as well.

1LP:
Victoria, BC and surrounding area - 0 dollars. Contact me and we'll arrange the exchange in person.
British Columbia - 11-13 dollars.
Alberta / Saskatchewan - 14-16 dollars.
Yukon, Northwest Territories, Manitoba, Quebec - 15-17 dollars.
Ontario - 16-18 dollars.
Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick - 17-19 dollars.
Nunavut - 20 dollars.

All prices are via Expedited Parcel, which contains a tracking number and arrives within 5 business days. I have a Canada Post Small Business Card that decreases the price of Expedited to the price of Regular.

Note: I am forbidden by Canada Post regulations to send any item via Letterpost that isn't purely paper internationally. That means the minimum I can send CDs for is 7 dollars US via Small Packet Air, whether they're decased or not. This method does not include tracking. Decasing on multiple CDs will still decrease the shipping cost, though.
US
1 CD will be 7 dollars without the jewel case, either 8 or 9 dollars with the jewel case (depending on if the package exceeds 100 grams or not).
4 CDs with the jewel cases equal roughly 15 dollars.

1LP
12 dollars via Small Packet Air - any state. This option does not include tracking.

All 2xLP albums count as 2LPs, and all prices are subject to change according to the weight of the package and the discretion of Canada Post.
If you're from an area of the world not listed, you're ordering formats not listed or you're ordering multiple items, please contact me for a shipping price. I'll package the item beforehand, measure it and weigh it without the obligation to pay - if the price doesn't suit your needs then you're more than welcome to cancel the order.

Grading Accuracy, Pricing and Refunds:
All grading follows the Goldmine Grading Standard. I try to be as accurate and as honest as possible with my grading, I'm as much of a collector as I am a seller and I deeply believe in the importance of grading accuracy for every collector. If you think my grading is either inaccurate or doesn't reflect the price of the item, please contact me before leaving feedback. I'm more than willing to offer refunds based on errors in judgement so long as they're proven with either audio or pictures.
NOTE: When I say Visually Graded on an item - this means I have not listened to it, and therefore I'm not responsible for issues with playback on the item. I'm only one man, and I can't listen to every single one of the thousands of items I list.

Shipping methods:
Vinyl:
All records are shipped in a generic white sleeve outside of the LP sleeve, in a plastic sleeve containing both. If the inner sleeve is a picture sleeve, then the record is still shipped in a generic white sleeve and the picture sleeve is stored inside the LP sleeve. All LPs are cleaned before shipment, wrapped in one layer of bubblewrap and put into a homemade cardboard mailer made out of two 15x15 squares of cardboard, firmly sealed at the seams with an excess of shipping tape.
All CDs and cassettes are cleaned before shipment, and sent in a standard bubble-mailer.
78rpm records are sandwiched between 2 cardboard 10' squares, wrapped in bubble wrap, and then mailed in a larger parcel with adequate stuffing inside such that the original sandwich does not move. This is the same for a single 78, or 100 of them.
Before shipment, all items are regraded to ensure grading accuracy - if I determine that my Discogs listing grade was inaccurate then I will contact the buyer before shipment to notify them of the potential mistake, and adjust prices as necessary. I'd rather lose a sale than get negative feedback, and I'm sure my buyers feel the same way.

If there is no tracking number on the shipment, then it's officially out of my hands and control and in the hands of the postal system. This risk is absorbed by the buyer in full, if you're not willing to take the risk or pay for tracked shipping, please don't order.
I've never lost an item in transit before, but I have had items take up to three months to arrive. Please be patient and communicate with me if the item hasn't arrived.
I will gladly provide proof of purchase, as I store all of my receipts from the post-office in filing.
Once again, DO NOT leave neutral or negative feedback on the order before contacting me. I honestly do try to do everything in my power to ensure that the item arrives to you as cheaply, safely and quickly as I can possibly provide.

Lastly, I do NOT provide refunds on items damaged or broken by the postal service. Buyer takes this risk.

Thanks!
