My RETURNS & POSTAGE and PACKING Policies
If you wish to return a book please let me know as soon as possible but no later than three days after receipt.
If you feel, and I agree after we have discussed it, that my description was misleading or inaccurate then, upon the receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund all your payment plus your return postage.
If the book isn't what you really wanted and if we agree, then, upon my receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund your bid price.
I have found, so far, that the majority of my buyers are genuine.
For my part I try and describe the books as fairly as possible - I am not a professional - and do not like buyers to feel dissatisfied.
My Postage and Packing charges are calculated before wrapping as best I can with a very nominal amount added for packaging costs.
With the new Royal Mail UK pricing it is impractical (and expensive) to pack books together so multiple buys within a seven day period are posted at cost. This means that in the case of Pay Pal payers the first book is sent off for the quoted P & P charge and I either quote for the subsequent P & P minus the overspend on the first book, or if it has been paid, refund the difference.
