Buying & Trading

Placing an order with Pranceatron Toys

#1: Find an item you want to buy.
The item you are interested in should be in a plain white box, like the one shown left. That means it is most likely available.*  
The box on the far right should not contain any words like "On Hold" or "Two Day Hold."  Prices are in US funds.
*Occasionally items are not available because, despite my best efforts, I haven't updated my page recently enough, or your browser may not be current.  This is especially a problem on "update days".

#2 Email Me.
On top of each sales page there is an email link for <>.  Clicking it should open an email through your email program, or you can copy and paste the email address into your emailing program of choice.  
In the body of the email, copy & paste the description of listing(s) that you are interested in.  

#3: Await my order request email.
Providing that your choices are available for purchase,  I will place your items on a "two day hold", while we negotiate the sale.
I will weigh the item(s) you are interested in, and get back to you with the shipping quote and any applicable discounts, and my paypal information.  I try to do this within a day, but sometimes it can take a bit longer. 

If I receive no reply within two days (that's why it's called a two-day hold!), I will assume you do not wish to purchase the order and the items will go back on the list.  

If you agree with the total price, you can paypal me right then and there, or you can let me know you prefer a paypal invoice or wish to pay by money order through the mail. If you are a buyer from the US, regular US money orders are fine -for example the green postal ones or grey western union ones - they don't need to be international ones.  With your payment, please include your email address, mailing address, and a brief description of what you are buying (ie: "Ponies")

#4 Payment Pending
After shipping and payment time frame are agreed to, I will place your item On Hold - as shown on the left.  I expect payment within two weeks, but I am flexible about payment times, just as long as I know what's going on.

#5 Await & receive your package
After payment is received, I will pack up your item and ship it out within 2 business days.
Generally items take 2 weeks to arrive via surface mail to the US, or via airmail to Europe, Japan & Australia; within Canada is typically a week.  Items sent via surface outside of the US can take a very long time, usually a month, possibly up to three.  I will keep you informed during the sale negotiation period as to shipping times based on the method of shipment chosen.

Trading is done on a per-person basis.  Generally, a day is picked that is convenient to both parties and packages are sent out at the same time, with the same type of mail service (air mail or ground).  Each person pays shipping on the package they will ship.  Package size and weight will be considered in the value of the trade.

Please see my Want List if you want to trade!  I trade only for things I personally collect, so I will trade generously.  I don't trade for things to resell, it's just not fair on either end.
