Additional Policies

Payment Policy

At the moment I only accept PayPal payments. Paypal is the safest and most secure form of payment, for both the seller and buyer.


Please note this does not mean you need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal. You can enter your card details as normal, like any online transaction.


Payment must be made in full and have cleared before the item is shipped. If you are having any issues with PayPal, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will assist you in anyway that I can.


Customers in the UK can pay via a direct bank transfer if they wish, please contact me directly if you want to use this method.
