Response Time: I will usually respond within 24 - 48hrs to questions and purchase requests, via the e-Rocks contact and invoice system.

If you contact me directly via email this will be the same.  I make no guarantee to respond via any Social media site(s).

Payments: All transactions must be currency requested in the invoice.

Preferred payment is via PayPal, this is accessed securely and automatically through the invoice.

Australian buyers may request bank transfer, or cash if picking up specimen(s) in person.

I am happy to combine items to save on postage costs, please contact me prior to payment of single items to arrange a combined invoice.  Along with this, I am happy to hold items for a short period, if you are considering other auction specimens which have not currently finished.

Buyer Protection: Transactions are between Buyers and Sellers on e-Rocks using PayPal are covered by PayPal's Buyer/Seller Protection - subject to their Terms & Conditions.

Under PayPal's terms, I reserve the right to use the Buyer's PayPal registered address only as delivery address.  Please contact me before bidding/buying if you wish to have an item shipped to another address.

Shipping: Please refer to shipping costs quoted on individual items and my shipping policy section on item pages.  All shipping costs are subject to my local postage rates. Due to this, I reserve the right to change these rates should underlying costs change.

I am happy to combine multiple items which will, in most cases make postal costs cheaper. 

Insurance, Signature on Delivery, or alternative Carrier can be provided at cost to purchaser.  Please remember though, this can add a reasonable amount to shipping costs at times.  ALL parcels sent within Australia have tracking to delivery as standard, and a tracking number will be provided once your parcel is sent. 

My mailing address/contact information is found via my profile page, or on the top of your invoice.

For All Customers: Once I receive payment, your specimen(s) will be packed, and sent within 48 hours– unless you request a Shipping Hold.

Returns: Should there be any discrepancies (missing or wrong items etc.) in your delivery, please contact me within 10 days of delivery.  All due care is taken in packaging your specimen(s), thus unless you choose to have postal insurance, I cannot be held responsible for breakages during shipping.  However, should an item(s) arrive damaged, please contact me immediately.

My goal is for 100% customer satisfaction.  If you are not happy with a specimen, you may send it back within 4 weeks. After receipt, I will refund the price minus shipping costs once it has been received in the condition in which it was sent.  Please contact me though before sending any item(s) back.

If any returned item is not received within 15 days, it will be assumed that you are intending to keep the specimen and the transaction will become final.  I may give a longer time for returns on more remote locations.
