It's highly recommended you email me before purchasing anything to get a shipping quote. Just send your zip code and the item(s) you are interested in and I can usually get back to you very quickly.
I ship with Fed Ex Ground and USPS. All Fed Ex shipments include free insurance for up to $100 value, additional insurance available by request. USPS shipments can also be insured if you request it. All Priority Mail shipments include free Delivery Confirmation and tracking as well as up to $50 value insurance. I send emails when payment arrives and have USPS or Fed Ex send tracking info directly to buyer when items ship out. If your item is being shipped by a method that does not include tracking I send updates by email.
I generally do NOT accept returns but will work with reasonable people if there is an issue. For legal purposes all items are considered second-hand and are sold as-is. I am not responsible for any problems arising from use or misuse of items.
Unlike most internet sellers EdsGoodStuff does not use online payments. The reason for this is because I want to keep things manageable and low stress- and this is the way that works best for me.
If you use personal checks then that is the safest and most efficient way to send payment.
A money order is also fine and will speed things up, You can purchase money orders at almost any convenience store or check cashing place. All US Post Offices sell USPS Money Orders.
Services like MoneyGram, Western Union Money Transfer, Walmart Money Transfer, and probably a few others are also fine. Usually you would go to a local branch and give them the money, email me the transfer details, and I will pick up within a day or two. You may also be able to do the transfer on their website using a bank account or credit card. I don't recommend these methods UNLESS you are outside the USA and don't have access to other methods.
For local pickup cash only is accepted. Sending cash though the mail is definitely not recommended. That being said I have received cash at my PO box many times over the years and never had a single issue. If you choose to send cash it is entirely at your own risk but you can lower that risk by sending registered or certified so it will have to be signed for at the post office. For low value items I can understand why this is a reasonable option for some people, for higher value items you are strongly discouraged from sending cash.
International buyers read this!
You are welcome to buy but since I do not use Paypal, credit cards, or bank transfer you may find it inconvenient to get me payment. Most of my overseas customers use either MoneyGram or Western Union Money Transfer. Any check or money order drawn on a US bank should also be OK. Please don't waste your time or my time by buying something from my website before you have figured out how you are going to send me payment. Thanks.
Shipping anything outside the US has become very expensive lately. For example the least expensive method to ship an item under one pound just to Canada is around $14. To Europe the least expensive for items under one pound starts at around $23. If it's over one pound the costs go up very quickly. Please KEEP THIS IN MIND before placing an order. No need to waste your time or my time...
