Baddog's Shipping FAQ

How Do I Pay?

Ebay requires payment via Paypal, so we must offer that. There is a cost to us accepting Paypal that has been built into the shipping and handling fees.

You may choose to pay us by money order or via online/email payments. They are accepted as well, but cannot be listed on Ebay as accepted methods of payment.

All payments must be made in U.S. dollars. If using a US Money Order, you can purchase a Money Order at a number of places: The US Postal Service; your local bank; Western Union; 7-11; American Express; and more. Please note that if you purchase a money order at the US Postal Service, you MUST request an “International” money order (regular postal money orders are not cashable outside the US). If you are purchasing a money order ANYWHERE else, the normal ones they give out are fine (no need for a special international one).

Why don't you accept cheques?

They take too long to clear our bank in Canada before we could safely ship something.

What type of Shipping do you offer?

We use USPS for all shipping to customers in the US from Canada – it does add a service cost to normal USPS fees, but allows for tracking and most items arrive much faster than using Canada Post.

What about shipping costs within Canada?

It actually costs more to send a package across the province in Ontario than it does to send to Hawaii! Plus, Canada Post charges HST of 13% on all postage. The costs for Canada shipping are ESTIMATED and must be finalized with the buyer's final address confirmed. This can sometimes jump the estimated cost up substantially, but be warned, we will only ship when paid the correct amount.

What about shipping costs internationally around the world?

We have sent hundreds of packages around the world and welcome International buyers. As with Canadian shipping, the costs for International shipping are ESTIMATED and must be finalized with the purchasers final country in mind.

AIRMAIL is the only shipping service allowed for any international packages.

How often do you ship packages?

We ship minimum of TWICE weekly (usually Tuesday and Fridays). Most of our auctions end on Sundays. This allows us time to receive your payment and pack items.

WE HAVE BUILT IN A 5 DAYS SHIPPING WINDOW TO ALLOW FOR Payment, packing, and dropping at USPS service company.

How do you send stuff?

All shipping costs quoted on EBay are based on having the item shipped via regular mail through USPS to the US and Canada Post to Canada and International.

How long does it take for stuff to arrive?

Using our drop ship to USPS – it should take anywhere from 3-10 days ON AVERAGE to arrive at its destination. When shipped, you will get a notice from Ebay with your tracking # on it – use that to track where your item is.

We have had packages arrive in 2 days and in 20, but the average is about 8 days.

Do you have references?

We have been on Ebay for over 15 years, sold thousands of items and have nearly 4,000 positive feedbacks at this time. We have tons of references and have been selling over the Internet and through appearances at Toy and Barbie shows for over 20 years. We can provide many references on request.

What if I don't pay for the item I've won?

We are patient, but unfortunately a few people have taken advantage of this in the past so we are now more strict with paying within a close time frame from date of purchase. If we have no received money from you within 3 days, we will send you reminder invoice. If at that point we have not received money by 5 days from your purchase/auction end, we file a complaint with Ebay letting them know you have become a “Non-Payer”. You have one more chance from Ebay to pay us in full within one week or we will close the file, you will have a STRIKE put on your record by Ebay and your item will be relisted for re-sale.

We reserve the right to forward non-paying names on to any other dealers to let them know that you do not complete transactions.
