So... the bad news is that I have got more than my share of stubborn idiots this month.
The good news is that, since I need to have some sales in the next few days in the most desperate way, so that I can get out of my negative paypal balance and become able to ship packages from my paypal account again, I'm having a FREE SHIPPING SALE.
If it will fit in padded envelope, it will ship for free, via first class mail, to the United States OR to Europe or Canada. If you are purchasing from ebay, you MUST request a combined invoice before paying and send me the code NOVFREESHIP in the "comment" box of the "request invoice" page.
If you want to order from the website, you need to send me a list of what you want so I can send you an invoice. The coupon code will NOT work on the website checkout - I have to fix the shipping manually.
Please don't pay shipping and then ask me to refund the shipping because of the coupon - I can't, because my paypal balance is seriously, seriously negative due to a buyer with a chip on his shoulder. Any money that goes into my paypal account gets immediately sucked up into the black hole of GIANT EBAY ASSHOLE. So please, please ask for the free shipping BEFORE you pay.
If you are a US buyer and you purchase $50 or more in merchandise, your package will be upgraded to free priority mail. If you are an international buyer and you purchase $75 or more in merchandise, your package will be upgraded to free priority mail (the only way to get tracking info for an international package - it's not available for first-class packages).
(Yes, I will ship your order - I have borrowed money from a colleague in order to keep my business open until paypal can do its thing and confirm receipt of a package overseas [which could take weeks, and which in the meanwhile makes my business my colleague's business. I don't upload every pissy buyer's userid into toolhaus.org or similar databases or ebay "bad buyer" clearinghouses, because it's not always worth it. Sometimes a buyer is a jerk or annoying but there's nothing illegal about being a jerk or annoying. But this is about money, and about fraudulently withholding payment in violation of the ebay buyer/seller contract. And when people rip off sellers with false paypal claims, chargebacks, false information, and the like, we have to protect ourselves this way, because ebay has removed the ability to leave negative feedback for buyers. The only feedback you can leave a buyer is positive feedback - so buyer feedback on ebay is completely meaningless and useless. Thank God it only happens about once a year.])
This sale is on until Monday the 15th at 10 am Eastern time.
The whole story is behind the cut.
