Item Description:

 

This Furby electronic toy is a rare Vintage Collector’s item which is almost virtually impossible and difficult to find.  This toy is no longer manufactured so you will not find this on any store shelf.  Super rare and original!  As each day goes by there are less and less of this type of vintage collector pieces - so don't delay in your purchase!

 

This listing if for one brand new original 1999 Tiger Electronics interactive talking VINTAGE Furby "Kaola Bear" edition toy (model number 70-800) in the color black and gray.  I have also heard of this being referred to as a Furby owl. 

 

It has gray eyes and white inner ears.

 

This Furby toy has never been taken out of the original factory carton and the Furby and box are both in MINT condition, except for a small minor dented area in the middle of the plastic part of the display box.  The original tape used from the factory is still intact to keep the top and bottom of display box closed – completely sealed - tape has never been broken or cut through. 

 

I am assuming since this toy is BRAND new, that all instructions papers and the ‘Furbish – English dictionary’ is enclosed in the package as with all new Furbies – but since this has never been opened I cannot verify that fact.  The plastic hanging tag is attached to the side of this furby.

 

I believe this particular Furby was first released in 1999.  UPC:  050626006603

 

When you first pull Furby out of the box, he speaks his own language, Furbish, then he gradually begins speaking English.

 

Part robot, part animatronic, part fur, and part love, Furby took the toy world by storm. His original production run lasted thru 2000, and sold over 40 million Furbies in 24 languages.

 

Furby was re-released in 2005 in a run including Emoto-Tronic Furby (Furby, Baby Furby, and Funky Furby). Emoto-Tronic Furby was much larger than the original classic Furby. Furby was once again retired in 2007.

 

Furby was also available as a plush non-talking "beanie baby" type pet called Furby Buddy / Furby Buddies.

 

A Furby is "your emo-tronic friend," according to Hasbro's "Furby Care Guide." The interactive toy has four sensors and a microphone; it responds to having its back rubbed or its tummy tickled, being fed and being tilted from side to side or upside down. It also responds to 10 commands, provided that you speak them exactly as they're written in the manual.

 

A Furby (plural Furbys or Furbies) was a popular electronic robotic toy resembling a hamster/owl-like creature which went through a period of being a "must-have" toy following its launch in the holiday season of 1998, with continual sales until 2000. Furbies sold 1.8 million units in 1998, 14 million units in 1999, and altogether in its three years of original production, Furbies sold over 40 million units. Its speaking capabilities were translated into 24 languages.

 

Furbies were the first successful attempt to produce and sell a domestically-aimed robot. A newly purchased Furby starts out speaking entirely Furbish, the unique language that all Furbies use, but are programmed to speak less Furbish as they gradually start using English. English is learned automatically, and no matter what culture they are nurtured in, they learn English.[1] In 2005, new Furbies were released, with voice-recognition and more complex facial movements, and many other changes and improvements. The Emoto-Tronic Furbies (Furby, Furby Baby, and Funky Furby) continued to be sold until late 2007, when these toys became extremely rare.

 

Furbies originally retailed for about US $35.00 and upon release, Furbies flew off the shelves in toyshops. Catapulting demand for these toys during the 1998 holiday season drove the resale price over $100, and sometimes as high as several hundred dollars. Furbies sold for over $300 in newspapers and in auctions. Nicknames were given to them, and sellers assigned rarity values to them. Some people continue to call their Furbies by the terms 'wedding Furby', 'tuxedo Furby', 'snowball Furby', 'biker Furby', among others. All, of course, were dubbed rare by sellers, because they were so hard to find at the time – and even harder in today’s markets.  In a sure display of the demand for the toy, some sellers scammed people out of a great sum of money, without even having first given them a Furby. Parental battles, arguments, and fights increased rapidly as supplies dwindled, and when retail supplies ran out, parents turned to the Internet, where Furbies could be finally once again be purchased.

 

You are certainly NOT going to find such toys as this on any retail shelf – so grab this amazing toy while you can!

 

Great vintage collectible gift offering great fun and conversation.

 

Tiger Electronics is an American toy manufacturer, best known for its handheld LCD games, the Furby, and Giga Pets.

 

Tiger Electronics has been part of the Hasbro toy company since 1998. Hasbro, previously shy of high-tech toys, was very interested in the development of the cuddly "Furby". With Hasbro's support, Tiger was able to rush through the development process and get the Furby on the shelves for the 1998 holiday season, during which it was a runaway hit -- the "it" toy of the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

 

Don't miss out on the opportunity to own this wonderful creative Furby.  It would be the ultimate present for yourself or that special Furby collector in your life.

 

Learning to use a Furby is fast and fun, leaving you more time to get to know your electronic pet.

 

Sensors

Your Furby robotic toy uses five sensors to interpret your interactions with it. The light sensor, located just above Furby's eyes, allows Furby to know whether it is day or night. The front sensor, located on the stomach, lets you make Furby laugh by playfully tickling his tummy. Furby's inside sensor lets him know when he has been picked up or turned upside down. The sensor located on Furby's back allows you to give him affection by rubbing or petting him. The sound sensor, located under Furby's left ear, allows Furby to hear and interpret sounds and commands.

 

Setup

Before you can play with your Furby you will first have to perform a basic setup. Begin by turning your Furby upside down and installing four AA batteries in Furby's battery compartment. The manufacturer recommends using high-quality alkaline batteries to power your Furby. While Furby is upside down, hold down his tongue switch and press the "Reset" button. This will cause Furby to wake up and tell you his name. Your Furby is ready for play.

 

Developmental Stages

Your Furby will go through four developmental stages before his programming is complete. When your Furby is new it will speak only its native language of "Furbish." During the first developmental stage, your Furby will be getting to know you and helping teach you how to take care of him. The second and third developmental stages are transition stages where Furby begins to learn English. The fourth developmental stage is Furby's "mature" stage, where he will begin to speak both English and Furbish, as well as follow commands.

 

Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance will help ensure that your Furby is functioning at its best. Care and maintenance for your Furby includes keeping him clean and dry. If your Furby needs to be cleaned, use a soft cloth dampened with a solution of mild soap and water to clean his fur. Should your Furby be immersed in water, remove the batteries and dry him with a hair dryer before inserting new batteries.

 

Troubleshooting

If your Furby fails to respond to commands or appears to be malfunctioning, you may need to perform a reset. You can reset your Furby by pressing the "Reset" button or removing the batteries from Furby's battery compartment. After a reset, your Furby will remember his name, as well as all of the tricks you have taught him. If, after performing a reset, your Furby is still malfunctioning, try replacing the batteries in your Furby. If, after replacing the batteries, your Furby still does not function properly, you will have to perform a restart. To restart your Furby, hold him upside down while pressing his mouth switch, then press the "Reset" button. This will restore your Furby's programming to factory settings.

THE STORY OF FURBY:

Some furbys are grey, and others are white.

Some Furbys are black, as balck as night.

Some have tails, and others manes.

Some of stature, big of heart, all furbys are so very smart.

They speak a language all their own, for furbish is a language quite unknown.

Furbys need “may-may” (love) and “may-lay” (hugs) and they “wee-tee” (sing) and “loo-loo” (joke).

So when you take a furby home, you will never be alone.

The more you play, the more they do.

Furby will keep amazing you!

"noh-lah" (dance) and "wee-tee" (sing), "e-tah/e-tah" (yeah-yeah); furbys have come for "u-nye" (you) and "kah" (me).

What?  You have read all the way down to here and still have not clicked the Buy-It-Now button.  Why not?  What are you waiting for?  Better refresh this page because someone else may have started reading before you and already bought this.

 

USE BUY IT NOW to ensure you get this item!  Not long ago, after allowing myself to get distracted by something else, I clicked the Buy-It-Now button on a listing, only to discover it had already sold!  Lesson learned!

 

The downside of “Watch this item”

Often I hear from people hoping I had another one to list and saddened because they had added my item to their watch list while they were waiting for another auction to end (thinking that for some reason the rest of the world missed what they thought was going to be a bargain) only to be disappointed again in the end when the other item bid up in the last few minutes as often happens and sold for far more than they could have bought mine with buy-it-now.

 

Unfortunately for them, the only one I had was sold days earlier and the new owner had already received it by then (since I usually ship same day - read some of the comments in the feedback buyers have posted for us).  You will notice in our feedback that many buyers are proud of their wise decision to secure their purchase and receive their item right away through buy-it-now.

 

If you are like me when I want to buy something, I want it now - not “6d 17h” from now, and then only IF I win an auction days in the future.  My time is far to valuable to spend searching for a potentially slightly better deal or waiting for auction after auction to end, having to inquire as to incomplete details in multiple listings, or evaluate multiple sellers feedback.  When I find a fair deal from a reputable seller who charges just the actual cost of shipping and will ship same day, I use his Buy-It-Now immediately, because life is too short to dink around.

Information to Consider Before Your Purchase

 

About Us:  We are not dealers, just a husband and wife clearing out an accumulation of “spare stuff” for the first time after 32 years together.  As eBay buyers ourselves, we avoid listings with vague details or incomplete descriptions and knowing that any other wise buyer will do the same, we offer an honest and accurate description of all items (most of which we bought new) to the best of our ability, including our own original digital pictures of the actual item you will receive.  We strive to provide you the same information we would want to know if we were the buyer.  If we have missed something in the description that you would like to know, please ask and we will be glad to accommodate.  All items are in our possession, will be packaged very well for shipping, will ship immediately after payment clears, and arrive exactly as described in the listing.

 

Buy with Confidence:  By participating in one of our listings, you have the confidence that your transaction from start to finish will be a smooth flawless one.  One big advantage of buying from us is that you have the opportunity to check out our long positive eBay feedback record and other background information through our websites to get to know us in advance, rather than being stuck with gambling on trusting an anonymous trading partner (often in an undisclosed location, with inaccessible contact information, or contact phone number).  We have had the same eBay user name and verified I.D. since 1998 with over 1,000 positive eBay feedbacks earned through flawless transactions, same physical address since 1973, same bank account number and telephone number since 1977, same business location and spouse since 1979.

 

Our Reputation:  As full-time self-employed small business owners since 1979, having successfully completed thousands of long-distance high-dollar transactions from a bricks & mortar location with customers worldwide since long before the Internet came along, we understand the importance of accessibility, clear communication, and the concerns buyers face.  We have always been richly rewarded by our repeat customers since we know that if we do it right, they will tell two friends, but do it wrong and they will tell everybody!  It takes a lifetime to earn an impeccable reputation like ours and we know that it only takes a moment to destroy it.  This is why we have always dealt with our customers the way we would want to be treated.  Naturally, we have applied these same principals to every Internet transaction since we came online in March 1998.

 

Our References:  We are always willing to supply credible references that are easily VERIFIABLE through local business, government, and law enforcement upon request.  We hope you will start with viewing our outstanding feedback record.  With our eBay accounts combined, more than 1,700 satisfied people have already voluntarily taken the time to leave feedback for us, 100% of which is positive.  Since statistically only about a third take the time to leave feedback, it is safe to assume that there are easily another 3,400 people who are just as satisfied but did not take the time to post feedback.  Believe me, unhappy people will almost always leave negative or neutral feedback, of which we have none, for good reason.

 

Questions:  Although we do our very best to provide the most complete information possible in the description of every item that we list, we cannot possibly presume your knowledge level or familiarity with the specific item listed or anticipate your needs or intended use for the item, so we cannot be responsible for any questions that you may have not resolved to your satisfaction BEFORE you purchase from us.  To eliminate any possible misunderstanding, please do not assume or take for granted anything not specifically stated in listing description.  If you have questions, you can phone us at 217-762-4846, or simply go to the “Meet the seller” section located on the top right-hand side of this web page, and click on “Ask Seller A Question”.  We will reply as promptly as possible.

 

Terms:  While we are a private party selling our own personal property, where applicable, the terms of this transaction shall be in strict accordance with the Sales Information & Policies we established in 1979 for our business and as stated herein.  Unless otherwise expressly stated, all items are sold in untested used condition having wear, tear, and/or deterioration, without any express warranty or any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for any intended use.  All items are sold "as is" and "where is" by a private owner, with no expressed or implied warranty, representation, or guarantee.  Only what is specified in the description and/or pictured is included.  All transactions are FOB/FCA our location in Monticello, Illinois 61856.  Since this is a private transaction, there is no sales tax.

 

Payment:  We accept PayPal, Cash (in person), and Bank Wire Transfer.  We also accept payment through your Bank’s online bill payment service.  Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Credit Cards, Debit Card, and Electronic Check payments accepted via www.PayPal.com.  For your protection and to prevent fraud, we will deny any payment sent through PayPal that is not marked eligible for seller protection on the PayPal Transaction Details page, and require you to use another form of payment.  Unless we have agreed to special payment arrangements in advance, payment is due as soon as you win an item or commit to buy-it-now.  So that we can ship your purchase right away, all forms of payment must be in US Dollars, received within 24 hours, one single payment for the full and exact transaction amount, and are subject to verification and authentication by PayPal and/or our bank.

 

Other Payment Options:  For some categories, we also accept Bank-to-bank transfers (also known as bank wire transfers and bank cash transfers), Money 0rder, Cashier’s, Personal, Company, Certified, or Electronic Check drawn on any bank located in the USA and any International Postal Money 0rder honored by the United States Postal Service.  We will also consider receiving payment through one of the following eBay-approved online payment services: Allpay.net, cash2india.com, CertaPay.com, Checkfree.com, HyperWallet.com, Nochex.com, Ozpay.biz, and Xoom.com (and perhaps in the near future Moneybookers.com, Paymate.com.au, and Propay.com), but please ask before you bid or buy-it-now if you wish to use one of these services as certain terms and conditions may apply.  As per eBay regulations, the above other payment options are offered only for items in the following categories: eBay Motors - Cars & Trucks, Motorcycles, and Other Vehicles & Trailers; eBay Motors Parts & Accessories - Engines, and Engines & Components; and Real Estate.  Due to the recent epidemic involving counterfeit negotiable instruments, all payments by money 0rder, check or other bank draft will delay shipping 12 business days for clearance, after deposited into our account (not including Saturday, Sunday, or holiday).  Bank wire transfers inside the USA must be via FedWire and from outside the USA via the SWIFT wire service (the same services most banks use).  If credit cards are used, no charge-backs are allowed for any reason.  We also offer interest free layaway and since it would be a violation of eBay rules for us to list other well-known point-to-point money and wire transfer services as payment options, we can say that after more than 32 years in business, we have never refused to accept a payment through any method a buyer has offered.

 

Buy-It-Now Listings:  Unlike an active auction where a buyer enters a proxy bid and may not be online to complete payment the moment a listing ends, Buy-It-Now listings end as soon as buyer completes the buy-it-now.  Since a buy-it-now bidder is online when he or she ends the listing with buy-it-now, we require that buyer complete payment immediately.  Failure to do so will result in the item being considered unpaid and dealt with accordingly (see “Unpaid Items” section below).  If you have already committed to a buy-it-now and for any reason are unable to complete payment instantly, please contact us immediately to discuss this.

 

Escrow:  Provided Buyer sets it up and pays all associated fees, payment for any item we sell can be processed through eBay's approved escrow service www.escrow.com.

 

International Buyers – Please Note:  Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.  These charges are the buyer's responsibility.  Please check with your country's customs office to determine what (if any) these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.  These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.  We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.  While we have to declare the value at exactly the purchase amount and not as a gift, there has been a trend lately for international buyers to have a friend or relative in the USA purchase an item, and then send it overseas to them as a gift, which is perfectly legal.

 

International Payments:  Payment for international transactions totaling more than $1,000.00 USD accepted by Wire Transfer only.  Any item that is classified as restricted or prohibited for the destination country at http://pe.usps.com/text/Imm/immctry.htm is shipped at Buyer’s sole risk and must be paid for by Wire Transfer.  Occasional exceptions are made with copious identification and proof that buyer owns the account being used for payment, to the satisfaction of our bank.

 

Shipping:  No hidden fees, we only charge the actual cost of shipping with delivery confirmation from zip code 61856.  We take pride in everything we sell, have extensive experience with shipping, and personally package every item we ship extremely well ourselves to ensure safe arrival to your destination.  Sometimes it takes longer, but normally we ship items within one business day after full payment has cleared.  We reserve the right to hold any shipment until we can confirm full payment has cleared.  We will ship to APO/FPO, U.S. Territory, and Post Office Box address provided any delivery confirmation as required herein is available to that location or if payment is by wire transfer.  For your protection, to ensure that we are shipping to the person who set up your account, we only ship to the address shown on the PayPal transaction details page, or in the case of non-PayPal payments, to the address shown in the eBay end of auction confirmation email and/or pre-printed on the payment instrument you send by mail.

 

Shipping Calculator:  No hidden fees or “handling charges” are concealed in the shipping calculator in our listings (and only the true weight & dimensions are factored).  If a shipping calculator is included in this listing, it is intended only to provide you an estimate of shipping cost.  The total amount to be added to the winning bid or buy-it-now price will be the actual cost of shipping at published rates as determined by type of delivery service used, weight, size, destination, and all required tracking, delivery confirmation, and insurance fees.

 

Shipping Options:  We strive to provide you with the lowest cost mode of transportation and multiple shipping options from which you may choose.  If you have special shipping needs, please contact us before you enter a bid or buy-it-now and we will try our best to accommodate.  For all PayPal transactions totaling $250.00 USD or more, buyer must select and pay for a shipping service that provides detailed online tracking documentation with adult signature proof of delivery confirmation signed by the buyer.  For all other transactions, buyer may select any service providing standard delivery confirmation that can be tracked online to their destination.  Online tracking, delivery confirmation, and insurance requirements are for our protection and yours, ensuring that you receive what you pay for.

 

Combined Shipping:  We are happy to combine shipping if you purchase more than one item from us.  Combined shipping cost is the actual cost of shipping based upon total combined shipping weight, package dimensions, and delivery destination at carrier published rates.  No hidden fees or deceitful surcharges!  Since we normally ship immediately upon receipt of payment, if you wish to bid on or purchase other items from us, please go ahead and pay for your first purchase as usual and simply notify us to hold shipping until all your purchases are complete.  This way we can adjust the shipping fee on invoices for your subsequent purchase(s) and often eliminate additional shipping costs altogether.

 

Insurance:  If the cost of insurance is factored in the shipping rate quoted in this listing, it is done so at the actual cost (no hidden fees) and clearly disclosed near the top of the listing.  Delivery in described physical condition is not guaranteed without buyer purchasing shipping insurance.  To prevent fraud, we document every order shipped via photos, video, and/or a confidential mark strategically placed in an inconspicuous location on all items.

 

Delivery Confirmation:  Third party commercial carrier delivery confirmation shall be sufficient evidence that any shipment has been delivered to buyer, whether or not acknowledged by buyer.  Buyer must provide a secure environment at PayPal confirmed delivery address location, or make special arrangements with the carrier to pick the shipment up in person (held at Post Office or carrier terminal for recipient pickup). 

 

Local Pickup:  No handling fee for local pickup, which we welcome and encouraged by appointment at our home or shop in Monticello Illinois (Halfway between Champaign and Decatur Illinois, 1 hour east of Springfield Illinois and 2 hours from Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis).  Full payment must clear as referenced above in advance or be paid in cash (U.S. currency) at time of local pickup.  Buyer must provide valid current government-issued photo identification matching buyers’ registered contact information on file with eBay and/or PayPal and sign a statement of items received.

 

Freight Shipping:  Cartons measuring longer than 108”, over 165" (length of longest dimension + 2x width + 2x height), or weighing over 150 pounds (70 pounds for residential delivery address) must ship via motor freight, freight charges collect, FOB/FCA Monticello, Illinois, with insurance and adult signature delivery confirmation.  Since we have accounts with Yellow Transportation, Con-Way Transportation, (and D & D express for delivery inside Illinois), the same discounted rates we receive pass the same savings on to the buyer.  Buyer is also is welcome to make his own transportation arrangements and we will provide coordination with buyer's carrier for pickup.

 

International Shipping:  As we have for more than 32 years, we ship internationally to destinations all over the world.  Since we have no way of knowing in advance where a buyer is located, buyer is required to know their own country's importing restrictions, rules, taxes, available delivery services, and eligible payment methods that meet our requirements as stated herein before purchasing from us.  If required, buyer is responsible for clearing the item for export from the United States of America, import to the destination country, and compliance with any additional rules or regulations imposed by any country whose borders the shipment will cross.  If an item is restricted or prohibited from importation to Buyer’s country by any government regulation, Buyer is solely responsible for arranging transportation FOB/FCA our location in Monticello, Illinois 61856.  In some countries, buyers will be required to pay additional customs brokerage fees, duties, taxes, tariffs, or additional local delivery fees imposed by foreign governments, shipping companies, or third party freight forwarders or handlers upon receipt of shipment and in addition to the transaction amount.  If regulations require us to prepare export documents, buyers outside of the USA will be assessed an additional $20.00 document charge.  International buyers must add $.01 handling fee for each $1.00 of total payment (unless payment is by wire transfer or mail).  The value of all items being shipped will be declared at exactly the purchase amount and not as a gift.  Buyers outside of the USA must select and pay for a shipping service that provides detailed tracking information and adult signature proof of delivery confirmation that can be tracked online.  We also need the recipients contact phone number for the shipping documents.  Since international shipments usually take longer than domestic deliveries and customs clearance sometimes further delays the delivery, to prevent misunderstanding or negative feedback, international buyers must acknowledge the estimated time in transit for the selected shipping service with their payment or through the eBay message forwarding service.  If the cost of insurance is not specified or added by the shipping calculator, please wait until you receive an invoice from us through eBay to pay for your international purchase.  Since online tracking and/or full value insurance is not offered by some shipping services to all international destinations, shipping outside the USA will be restricted to those carriers offering these services if required by the terms contained herein.

 

Damage in Transit:  Delivery of the item in good condition is the responsibility of the carrier.  In the unlikely event an item is damaged in shipment, buyer will be responsible for notifying and filing any damage reports required by shipping company.  Should any carton arrive in damaged condition, immediately bring the condition to the delivery person's attention and open the carton and inspect the contents while in his presence.  If the contents are damaged, immediately notify the carrier of damage and preserve all contents and original packing materials for inspection.  Contact us with all the details of the damage immediately.  We will contact the carrier and file a damage claim and they will contact you to coordinate an inspection and/or retrieve the shipment.  Claims for goods damaged in transit can take up to six weeks.  As soon as the carrier completes the inspection process, pays the claim, and/or returns any undamaged portion of the shipment to us, we will replace the item if we can, and if not we will issue an immediate refund.

 

Privacy:  Information provided to us will never be provided to any third party - unless you give express permission to do so.  We respect your privacy and do not partake in the practice of selling or distributing buyer information for any reason.  We will never use your personal or business information in any way that violates your privacy.  When you provide any information to us, it will only be used in such a manner as has been made clear to you, with your acknowledgement and prior permission.

 

Money back guarantee:  If you do not receive the item as described in this listing, we will offer you a full refund upon return including all shipping charges.  Any other item purchased will be subject to shipping charges in both directions plus a 25% restocking & inspection fee.  We do not accept returns or cancellations because you changed your mind or committed to purchase the wrong item, nor do we have a price matching policy.

 

Return Policy:  Since we no longer have supervision or control over its care, treatment, maintenance, or modification once it leaves our possession, items are not eligible for return.  Therefore, unless otherwise stated on this page, we will allow no returns, refunds, or exchanges and all sales are final.  If allowed by the terms expressed in this listing, all returns/exchanges must be in the original sale condition and packaging, receive our prior approval, and be shipped prepaid with insurance within one business day following date received by buyer.  Shipping and handling fees are non-refundable.  Any transaction correctly processed by us, but refused by, returned by, or otherwise undelivered to, the buyer, will be subject to a 25% handling fee, the cost of any return shipping, and/or any other associated costs.  Any shipment sent back freight collect, postage due, or bill recipient, will be refused.  To prevent fraud, we document every order shipped via photos, video, and/or a confidential mark strategically placed in an inconspicuous location on all items, often under the supervision of the carrier’s personnel just before sealing and their acceptance of the shipment.

 

Unpaid Items:  By placing a bid or committing to buy-it-now on this listing, you are agreeing to the terms contained herein and entering a binding contract that we will honor and enforce to the full extent of the law.  We recommend the use of an online instant payment service, next day overnight letter service, or wire transfer to ensure that your payment arrives within the required 24 hours.  If buyer fails to contact us within 24 hours after listing ends, or we do not receive payment as specified in the payment instruction section, or in accordance with special payment arrangements expressly agreed to by us BEFORE you bid, you forfeit all rights under said contract, and we reserve the right, but no obligation, to void the transaction and re-list the item.  We file to recover all associated damages for any unpaid bid or executed buy-it-now through eBay and the courts.  Any payment less than the total amount due by the terms contained herein is received as a non-refundable deposit and will be forfeited if full balance due is not paid within the allotted time.

 

Feedback:  We pride ourselves in making sure that each buyer is satisfied before, during, and after every transaction.  Our feedback is extremely important to us.  Our goal is to successfully complete each transaction flawlessly (hence our user ID Flawless-Transactions) and earn another positive feedback and all 5-star Detailed Seller Ratings for every item we list.  If for any reason you wish to contact us after receiving your purchase, please do so within 24 hours so we may immediately resolve any issues or concerns.  Whatever you do, please at least contact us and allow us a reasonable opportunity to resolve any possible issue or misunderstanding before you consider hastily posting neutral or negative feedback for us.  Failure to do so before leaving negative or neutral feedback will negate our return policy.  When you post positive feedback for us, please mention the item by name and its quality only (no general or generic comments please i.e.: quick email, fast shipping, exact description, well packed, highly recommend, very good transaction, etc, as we already have enough of these feedbacks).  When you leave positive feedback with all 5-star Detailed Seller Ratings for us, we will know your purchase arrived safely and close another successful transaction by posting positive feedback for you.

 

Thank you for understanding our terms and policies.

 

We look forward to trading with quality buyers like you.
