DOMESTIC SHIPPING: The shipping quote is for USPS Media Mail anywhere in the USA. I believe in packing books properly. I can’t tell you how irritating it is to receive a good book that has simply been dropped into an envelope.
If you would prefer 1st Class or Priority Mail the rate will be more. We will have to arrange that before I ship. If you buy this book with Google Checkout, then want to upgrade, it will trigger a lot of complications. I prefer payment by postal money order in all cases, especially these ones.
If you pay with check or money order you will pay exactly what you have to, because I will be able to invoice you. If you pay instantly with Google Checkout I will have to refund any overages, or re-invoice you afterward because the “flat rate” is not flexible. Please see the FAQ for particulars.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International will be much more; ask for a quote if you're interested. Canada pays for 1st Class Mail with registered delivery and return receipt if you pay with Google Checkout. If you mail me an international money order your shipping rate will be $10.00 US.
PAYMENT BY CHECK OR MONEY ORDER PREFERRED,
GOOGLE CHECKOUT OK
SUSHIDOG'S POLICY: I will disclose any defects to the best of my ability. You may generally assume that, in the absence of a disclosure of a defect, there isn't one. I don't like getting ripped off or lied to and I'm sure you don't either.
PAYMENT: Payment for an auction must be here within 7 days. Checks and money orders are automatically accepted. There will be a hold on checks until they clear. That could be as long as ten days depending on the item. Items paid by money order ship the next day.
Please be sure to review my terms of service and the FAQ.
