The LDs in this shop are largely duplicates from my own collection, acquired by buying in large lots. I try to make the descriptions as careful and accurate as possible. In case of any problem, I will try to accommodate my customers and treat them as I hope to be treated.
Please note that I cannot be responsible for defects in discs described as "New, Sealed", unless you specifically ask me to unseal them & check. It is for this reason that I do not charge a premium for such discs.
All prices given include shipping to addresses in the United States via USPS Media Mail. Overseas buyers, or buyers preferring another shipping method, will be charged actual cost less an offset of the included postage charge. A discount of 15% (from the listed price) will be given on all purchases of 5 or more lots.
I will consider any offer to trade, either on a disc-for-disc basis or in a mixed transaction with both discs & cash. In the former case, each party is responsible for his own shipping cost, while in the latter I am willing to adjust the total bill somewhat to equalise shipping charges on both sides. Items of particular interest to me are:
Offers to trade can be made through the regular Checkout procedure, or communicated via eMail topubliusatcaldcdotcom.
I will make every effort to ensure that discs reach their buyers promptly and in good condition. If they cannot go out within two business days of my recieving payment, I will so notify the buyer. All discs will be packed securely in appropriate shipping cartons, with wadding as necessary, and generally with a new poly-lined paper sleeve to boot. Upon request, discs may be wrapped separately in plastic "U" sleeves.
While the United States do not restrict or tax the importation of videodiscs, the buyer's country may seize the discs, inspect them, or subject them to a duty. I have no control over this, and cannot be responsible for any kind of loss at international borders. Know your country's laws!
I do accept PayPal, to my registered LDDb address, and I have no problem sending a PayPal invoice. Other than that, I am amenable to a wide variety of physical payment media. I expect to recieve payment promptly upon agreement as to the transaction, allowing for the delay of the mails, but I will hold an item for up to thirty days on request of a serious buyer. If I recieve a payment instrument I cannot use, I will contact the buyer immediately to make other arrangements.
Again, I cannot be responsible for losses in the mails or at international borders. For this reason, while I will accept currency and gold, silver, platinum, and palladium (at negotiated rates), I cannot recommend this kind of payment. (No allowance for collector's value of coins and articles of precious metal can be made.) Please do not ask me to accept alternative means of payment beyond these, if there are any. I cannot make change for instruments not made out for the exact amount of sale, but will carry any excess on my books to the credit of the buyer.
My preferred physical form of payment is United States Postal Service Domestic Money Order, which is inexpensive and secure. Other money orders, cashiers' cheques, and certified cheques are also acceptable but may involve some slight delay. Personal cheques in general will be accepted, but will have to clear before discs are shipped. I cannot accept payroll and other third-party cheques or post-dated cheques.
Where possible, payment should be made in United States Dollars, such as by a cheque upon a U.S. bank, or by International Postal Money Order. Other major currencies are also acceptable, at a rate to be negotiated based upon current rates of exchange and the agio I can expect to pay for conversion.
