Terms and Conditions.
Shipping: All items are shipped
via Canada Post unless otherwise specified. Shipping via
uninsured mail is in the $10 to $20 range anywhere in North America and
$30 to $40 insured. Shipping internationally is roughly double
the price of North American shipping. Shipping will be as close
to actual shipping costs as possible. If I overcharge for
shipping by more than $8 I will refund the difference. Likewise,
if I undercharge for shipping by more than $8 I may ask for some
additional funds which you are at no obligation to comply with.
Currency: All prices and shipping
quotes are in US dollars.
I can accept payment in any currency but the conversion will always be
made into US$. I use this site
for all my conversions. I prefer to accept payment by
international money order, Western Union Money transfer or cash(sent at
your risk) and will ship immediately with these payment forms. I
can take a personal check but they take up to 20 business days (4
weeks) to clear and shipping is delayed until payment is clear.
In some circumstances, I may accept Paypal but these are negotiated on
an individual basis. I cannot accept credit cards unless it is
through paypal or another online payment service, ask for details if
you wish to go this route.
Time payments are available on most items. I usually set a time
limit of 6 to 12 months on
payments but for large items this may be extended to a more appropriate
time frame. I am quite flexible within this but every change in
our initial agreement must be acceptable to both parties. In the
event someone is unable to complete an agreement with several warnings,
the partial payment that has been made is forfeit but I will give you
credit towards the purchase of other art on my site for up to an
additional 12 months. At that point, if no further communications
or agreements have been made, all rights to refund or credit will be
forfeit. Once we enter in to a time payment agreement, it is your
responsibility to keep me up to date with what is going on(unable to
make payment, illness, death in family, loss of employment,
communication is crucial, especially when the unexpected happens.
Damage and Lost
Goods: Items shipped uninsured
are done so with the
understanding that all risk of
loss or damage is assumed by the
buyer. I pack very well but no one can say with any
what will happen to any package. I will have proof of
shipping on all items unless sent by regular mail in a large
envelope. Insured packages are insured for up to $1000 CAN as per
our agreement. Your insurance is with the Canada Post and not
with me. In the event of a claim, I will facilitate the claim
process however I can
but you will have to wait for a refund to be issued by your insurance
policy with the Postal service, I will not provide the refund
myself. See images of a worst case scenario of art packed with
two masonite boards here. 1 and 2.
Refunds: All items maybe
refunded within 7 days of
arrival for reasons such as errors in artist attribution, failure to
describe a significant condition issue or other such errors and
oversights. Minor imperfections are present on almost all
artwork, things like white out use, paste up word balloons, editors
notes and other such things I usually try to mention but are not
considered significant. Also, most scans should show the defects
so you know what you are getting. Refunds for other reasons
(personal, financial or change of heart) are totally at my
discretion. Shipping fees on all returns are refunded (unless we
agree otherwise) but for the most part the cost of return shipping to
me will be assumed by the buyer.
and do some research before you buy the page. I
have done mine but I don't guarantee any of the information about any
page on the site.
Also, I am very easy going, understanding and flexible. These
rules may not reflect it but they are here so everyone has some
guidelines about how I do business. Also, know that I will
deal in good faith.
Once I agree to sell a piece, I will never back out of the deal from my
end, regardless of whatever else is offered to me or if I change my
mind. Once I am talking with someone about a piece, I will not
entertain any further offers on the piece until business is concluded
with the first party as long as communication is maintained.
Thanks for looking at my site.
