Payment Methods
(must be received within 10 days)
I will let you know when your payment arrives and when I intend to mail out your order.
 I am sorry, but I will not  be held responsible for lost payments.
I do not accept returns, so make your choice wisely

USA Orders -- these are the only forms of payment that I will accept:

Money orders or Certified Bank Checks --  I prefer the postal variety, but any grocery store or bank money order or certified check will do just fine.

Personal Checks -- When I receive your check, I will hold your order for a minimum of 10 (ten) days pending clearance.  I know that you are an honest person and I understand that some checks may clear sooner, but I have no way of calling your bank to find this out, because itís considered private information and due to US privacy laws, no bank will give out any info on any check.  If your check bounces for any reason, you will be responsible for the bounced check fee (minimum of $15) and will need to Express mail me a Postal Money Order or Cash to replace the check that bounced.

Cash -- I will accept cash in the form of US dollars or Japanese yen only.  Most countries, including the US and Japan do not condone and will not replace lost funds, whether insured or not.  Though I do suggest that if you must send me cash, that you mail it via registered or express mail.

Please note:  I do NOT accept credit cards online or over the telephone.  This includes any form of credit card processing service, such as Paypal or Billpointe.  I also do not accept any form of wire transfer, including postal, bank or Western Union.

International (Eastern Europe, Latin America, Hong Kong, Middle East) Orders  --

Due to the high risk of having mail lost via regular airmail from countries in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Hong Kong and the Middle East, I can only accept US dollars Cash or Japanese yen Cash via an overnight insured carrier, such as Express Mail, UPS Express, Fedex, Airborne Express etc. (your choice) and I will ship to you also using an over night insured carrier (my choice).  Your cash must be received within 7 days, which is enough time for an express service or your order will be automaticly canceled.  Sorry to be so strict with this, but I don't want to risk anything getting lost and anyone being unhappy. 

International (All other Non-USA) Countries these are the only forms of payment that I will accept:

Money orders or Certified Bank Checks --  Postal or Western Union are good, but other kinds are just fine too.  They must be in US dollars only.  For Postal money orders, I will accept them from Canada and Japan only and they must be the International type.  All other money orders or certified checks, bank or otherwise, must be drawn on a US bank (can be a US based branch of a foreign bank).  The US name and address of the bank must appear pre-printed directly on the money order.  

Personal Checks -- They must be in US dollars only and drawn on a US bank (can be a US based branch of a foreign bank).  The US name and address of the bank must appear pre-printed directly on your check.   When I receive your check, I will hold your order for a minimum of 10 (ten) days pending clearance.  I know that you are an honest person and I understand that some checks may clear sooner, but I have no way of calling your bank to find this out, because itís considered private information and due to US privacy laws, no bank will give out any info on any check.  If your check bounces for any reason, you will be responsible for the bounced check fee (minimum of $15) and will need to Express mail me Cash (US dollars or JPYen) to replace the check that bounced.
