Terms of Sale - How to Buy an Item

USA and Foreign Orders ... Send me an email for what item(s) you want to buy along with your shipping address. I will put them on hold for you. If you don't speak English, use Bing to translate. Keep your sentences short and simple.

Wisconsin Sales Tax ... If you live in Wisconsin please add 5.5% to the price or mail me a completed and signed Wis Resale Certificate along with your payment.

USA Shipping: I will safely pack your items. The buyer assumes all risk of loss and damage the moment the package/envelope is mailed by me. If you live in the United States there is usually no charge for shipping, it is already included in the price. I go to the post office once or twice per week. Add for insurance if you want it ($5 and up). Add $15 for Registered Mail to cover USPS fees and special packaging, but remember, registered mail is slow because it is under lock and key every step of the way!

Foreign shipping: I will safely pack your items. The buyer assumes all risk of loss and damage the moment the package/envelope is mailed by me. I go to the post office once or twice per week. Postage for most thin items (3/8 inches) is only about $4.50!

USA Payments: Cash, Check, MO, Postal Money Order. I don't like Paypal so I don't take it for USA customers. If I did: Paypal Goods Option: Add 4% for PP fees plus Insurance ($5 and up). Signature Confirmation (USPS: not available anymore). All payments must clear before I ship. I am not set up to accept credit cards or bank to bank transfers.

Foreign Payments: Cash by registered mail, International Money Orders (for Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean), email Moneygram, Western Union MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number); Europe & Asia (Paypal FF: friends/family/gift option), and (Paypal GS: goods/services option).

Foreign Paypal (Family-Friends, Gift Option): Use this F/F Option when you only want to pay for the low cost 1st class airmail shipping. Most thin items (3/8 inches) can be mailed for $4.50. Postage for items that need a package start at $13.50 per oz. You will not get package tracking. I get the exact amount, you get zero or very low fees. You will not be eligible for "buyer protection." The USPS purposely does not sell tracking or insurance on 1st class airmail to foreign countries. Some foreign countries now track some packages using the customs number but you can't count on it.

Foreign Paypal (Goods/Services Option): Use this GS option when you want package tracking and Paypal "buyer protection." Only available with USPS Express Mail (Federal Express). The cost is high: $59.50 for a 12x9" tracking envelope (anything you can stuff in up to 4 pounds). The buyer also pays for full insurance, plus 4% to cover Paypal fees on the total payment. Paypal G/S is extremely expensive!!
*** If you pay with the Paypal Goods option and only add the low cost $13.50 postage plus PP fees I will cancel your order and refund your payment. Why? Because I can't buy a tracking number for 1st class shipping, it is not available! Without tracking, the buyer can complain to Paypal they never received the item. Paypal will then take the money right out of my account. So please, if you want the PP Goods/Services Option you must pay for the Express Mail Monopoly Fees.

Email notification ... I will email you the day I receive your payment and the day I ship your order.

Payment by Trade or Consignment Items ... I am always looking for nice quality original items. What do you have to trade, sell, or consign? Send me an email or give me a call. E-militaria.com has been online since 2005.

Returns ... Any item may be returned for a full refund, less actual shipping and insurance costs if returned within seven days following receipt of the item(s) as long as they are returned in the same condition as sent. Any damage resulting from untoward disassembly, cleaning, "polishing", or other alterations may result in the denial of a full-refund. All returns must be safely packed and fully insured.

Prices ... The items in this online catalog are either mine or are on consignment from others. The prices are pretty much what I have to get. Unlike some other dealers, you know you are not getting gouged on shipping and handling charges. When something really nice comes along I pay up and that's what you must do too. I do not give volume or dealer discounts. If an item doesn't get many page views or has been around a while I may lower the price to move it out. If it still doesn't sell I will put it up on ebay (if it doesn't have a swastika) for a 99 cent opening bid. With the value of the dollar always declining 3% or more per year my advice is to spend those shrinking dollars on assets that will appreciate over time.

Send Payment to:

PO Box 1033 - Brookfield WI 53008 USA
