At shipment, we advise you by email with the registered number. Be advised that priority mail has limited and no live tracking ability.

DHL / FedEx / UPS
For $ 50 - € 75 pending on destination, we can use the 3-4 days courier service by DHL, FedEx or UPS. Please advise us when you want to use this service.

Your items will be mailed out usually 2-7 working days after we receive payment.

If you need to request special instructions or DHL, FedEx or UPS shipping and have not indicated so before on your personal data page, please contact us immediately following the auction. Be advised that we use the shipping address that is on file.
Please update this info immediately if incorrect.
If you update the shipping address AFTER you get the shipping advice, you need to confirm your change immediately, as your address label is most likely already printed.
