These are fairly standard grading terms, but there is some play in their use. Here is a more explicit explanation of how we use these terms. We try to get the BEST possible condition magazines, and keep them all in a clean, dry facility. This site has its own condition designations, so these terms are used in conjunction with those.
FINE: You'll need glasses to find any imperfections, if any. Pages clean and bright. Binding as new. COMPLETE, nothing missing. [Designation on this site: "Very Good"]
VERY GOOD: Minor imperfections. Binding tight, may show some sign of age in the pages, may be a few small folds or minor tears. COMPLETE, no missing pages. [Designation on this site: "Very Good"]
GOOD: May be a fold or tear here or there, or a loose cover, but this will be noted. May show signs of age. COMPLETE, no missing pages. [Designation on this site: "Good"]
FAIR: Folds, tears, or even possibly missing pages, or a cover. May be some water damage. You'll RARELY find these among our listings -- These will only be listed if they are so rare as to be of interest in this condition, and then with the faults noted. [Designation on this site: "Acceptable"]
SHIPPING, GUARANTEES AND RETURNS:
OUR POLICIES: No long multi-page list of rules you have to follow! It's really quite simple: Buy what you'd like, and after payment has been made (And we take payments with PAYPAL, and payments mailed to our address), we'll ship it to you. If you are satisfied, let us know. We always love comments about what you were looking for! If you have a problem, let us know that, too, as we have a 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. All emails are answered, usually within one/two days.
Specific SHIPPING CHARGES and OPTIONS are listed in the shipping section/tab. We INSURE, TRACK, and GUARANTEE each item, including its SAFE DELIVERY! We look for the least expensive and best way to ship each item, and the results of our research will be on each pages' shipping options, which will also include various expedited ways to ship, if possible. (Again, with the best rates and best services we can find -- remember that most magazines CANNOT BE SHIPPED via MEDIA MAIL anymore!). SHIPPING CHARGES JUST COVER OUR COSTS, barely.
SHIPMENTS are processed and shipped EVERY BUSINESS DAY, so your package will be on the way within 24 hours (or less) of your payment. All magazines are placed in an archival quality polyethylene sleeve, and packed with cardboard backing so they are protected in shipment, using our exclusive and GUARANTEED process. All deliveries are guaranteed, tracked and insured by MORE MAGAZINES. A receipt will be included with the package. DISCOUNTS for Multiple items for USA (only) delivery available! (See individual shipping pages for availability)
GUARANTEE: Your satisfaction is guranteed! We try to eliminate errors, but they can happen! If you need to return any item within 30 days, simply email with the problem or mistake, and upon return of the item, refunds will be granted, and in most cases, so will your return postage, or replacement. You won't have to spend a ANYTHING on a mistake of ours. Please email first with the nature of the problem, and we will do our best to take care of it.
Please remember that although most deliveries take from a few days to a week, the mail can sometimes take a little longer, so be patient. If you requested expedited shipping, of course you should get your items sooner. We want to earn our FIVE stars from you!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS|
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?
100% Satisfaction guaranteed! Returns or exchanges at no cost to you. If for any reason you are not satisfied, PLEASE email with questions, problems or suggestions -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS THE CONDITION OF THE ITEM?
The condition of each item is listed at the bottom of the contents section, Right BELOW the list of contents, in navy blue type. Also check the photo. For more specifics on grading conditions, see the condition page at our store (Link on every listing page). Email if you need more information about an item.
IS THE ARTICLE/WRITER/ILLUSTRATOR/PHOTO I AM LOOKING FOR IN THIS ISSUE?
We pride ourselves in as complete a listing as is possible, and go through each page to find these items for EVERY magazine. It is still possible to miss something, but before you ask us about it, please read/search the listing page itself, as it may already have the answer to your question. Detailed questions may take a few days to answer.
HOW TO I FIND THE ARTICLE/WRITER/ILLUSTRATOR/PHOTO I AM LOOKING FOR?
The SEARCH function available on EVERY listing page as well as our main store page is very powerful, and INCLUDES the contents of EVERY magazine we have listed. Give it a try, then if you have further questions, please ask. If you ask a detailed contents question, it may be a few days before you get an answer, but we WILL answer.
CAN YOU DO SOME RESEARCH FOR ME?
We've found some lost items for people in the past, and love to try, but remember our time is very limited. If we can't help right away, we may be able to point you in the right direction. If you ask a detailed contents question, it may be a few days before you get an answer, but we WILL answer.
I JUST WANT TO READ AN ARTICLE. CAN YOU SCAN IT?
Possibly. But we don't have time or desire to work for free, and it takes less time to package and ship a magazine than it does to scan it, so for most magazines it is less costly just to buy it.
HOW MUCH FOR SHIPPING?
The total delivery charge is in under the "Shipping and payments" tab on every listing page. We can keep our shipping rates low as we only cover our costs to pack and ship these items. DISCOUNTS for Multiple items for USA (ONLY) Delivery available!
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY? WHERE TO? HOW MUCH?
We'll ship ANYWHERE in the world where mail can be delivered. The total delivery charge is in under the "Shipping and payments" tab on every listing page. We keep our shipping rates low as we can and only cover our costs to pack and ship these items. For an estimate on shipping multiple items, please ask about specific items.
DO YOU COMBINE SHIPPING FOR A DISCOUNT?
YES! For U.S.A. orders, add only $1.00 for each additional item! FREE SHIPPING for large orders! For International orders, shipping is based only on the total weight, which will be reflected in a figured total invoice, sent after purchase. Or email before purchase for estimate. See listing page shipping TAB for details!
WHEN CAN I EXPECT MY ORDER TO ARRIVE?
Items are shipped within ONE BUSINESS DAY of PAYMENT. These are estimates:
STANDARD: Delivery time: 4-10 days, but CAN be longer. If you are in a hurry, use Priority Mail!
EXPEDITED Priority Mail, Delivery time: 2-5 days. If you are REALLY in a hurry, use EXPRESS MAIL!
EXPRESS MAIL: Delivery time: 1-2 days.
CANADA/INTERNATIONAL: AIRMAIL is 7-10 days, but can vary widely!
WHY DON'T YOU USE MEDIA MAIL?
MAGAZINES cannot be shipped Media Mail, according to Post Office rules. Yes, there are some sellers that use Media Mail for magazines. But Media Mail is randomly inspected by the Post Office, and they CUT the package open to do it. If they find a magazine, they will either send it back to us (damaged), or send it forward (damaged) with Postage due!
DO YOU ACCEPT OTHER PAYMENT METHODS?
YES, if it is allowed by eBay. These include payments mailed to us in various forms, if eBay allows me to say that. :-) Our address and payment details are listed in the invoice sent right after each purchase.
WHY DON'T YOU ACCEPT OFFERS?
TIME! If I spend a lot of time answering questions about ways to lower my price, I will not have time to index the contents of more magazines! We think these prices are reasonable, especially considering the work gone into each detailed description. HOWEVER, we discount shipping, and have FREE shipping on large orders!
MY QUESTION IS NOT ANSWERED HERE!
Then please send a question, I'll be happy to answer within 24-48 hours. For best results, do not hide your email address.
Thank you for your interest! --
