International Postage Calculation

  • The international postage depends on their weight.
  • Before receiving the books (and/or other items) from the shop/auction/circles/events it is quite difficult to estimate.
  • If the customers insist to get the rough one I can report but they must be suspenseful.

There are some method of transfer each has the characters:

  • EMS ... The fastest and the most reliable still expensive. Usually size limit is 1.5 m length and the total (length + width + height) is 2.75 m or 3 m (depending on the countries), weight limit 30 kg. With tracking number. Taking around 5 days to reach.
  • Air ... Fast and sometimes faster than EMS (for not all packages examined by the customs). Price is cheaper than EMS. Taking one to two weeks to reach.
  • SAL ... Nonscheduled airlines. The cargo plane flights go and back every night but this package waits until the container becomes full. So it will take some two weeks or more to reach but cheaper than Air. Some countries do not accept SAL so please check here.
  • Courier ... Usually the price is more expensive than above all. But it can carry the larger things. So in case of the items is very large but weight is light, it is useful. Size and weight limit same as EMS. With tracking number. AIR, SAL & surface available.

Air and SAL can feature the tracking number option @410 which is strongly recommended preventing postal accidents.

Month-End Deposit

Every twenty-seond of the month I ask the customers to transfer the amount those who have a stock and not enough deposit. The customers who asked it, please take action immediately and send the amount asked by end of the month.

I used to owe the valeur of the stock with my own budget. When I started the business in 2010 it was not a problem. But nowadays the number of the customers are increasing and keeping stock value is out my control. So I decided to ask the customers to owe their own marchandise stock amount even before they receive.
