Homepage >> Help >> Buying FAQs

Due to the fact that there are many different methods for delivery or shipping an item, the time lines will also vary depending on the options selected by the Seller. An item posted via regular post will take longer to arrive than an item shipped via a courier service which may only take a day or two. Always check the Shipping Options offered by the Seller on the item description page. Should there not be enough information regarding delivery or shipping options available, we suggest you make use of the Q&A facility to pose questions to the Seller about shipping costs, delivery methods, insurance, tracking etc.

We recommend to Sellers to advertise all the necessary details before hand, making it easier for the Buyer to see what options are available and at what cost, this avoids any disputes after the sale is completed on the site. We also recommend that both Buyer and Seller utilise a service that has parcel tracking and insurance included, this ensures the item can be tracked at all times and should there be any damage or loss to the parcel that it can be covered by the insurance, especially when sending high value items or breakable goods.
