In fact, I prefer payment via PayPal. Here's why: it doesn't charge buyers a fee, it guarantees the safety and security of your transaction, and PayPal provides both you and me with a confirmed mailing address.
I will, of course, accept money orders or cashier's checks, and will ship immediately upon receipt of these forms of payment. Personal checks are fine, too, but I may delay shipping for as long as 10 days to allow for check clearance.
I am happy to ship via either USPS First Class mail, or USPS Priority Mail, unless an alternate shipping method is requested by the buyer.
I recommend that complete outfits be shipped via Priority Mail in the small flat rate box, at a cost of $5.00. (Dolls won't fit in this sized box, but typically can be shipped Priority Mail by weight, at about the same cost.) Delivery should occur within 2-3 days from the date of mailing, and even without the additional cost of insurance, postal handling is quite reliable.
USPS First class, or parcel post rates are generally lower, but (as an Ebay purchaser!), I've found that delivery can be greatly delayed. Rates are based on package weight and zone, so they'll vary depending upon what you purchase and where you're located. If you choose this shipping option, your cost will be determined using the USPS rate calculator.
Smaller items will arrive swathed in tissue paper inside a bubble-wrap lined mailing envelope. Shipping cost is $2.00.
If you wish, you may request USPS postal insurance coverage, with rates based upon the declared value of the package.
