PLEASE NOTE: MOST DISPLAYED SHIPPING PRICES ARE FOR SHIPPING WITHIN THE USA

FOR FASTEST SERVICE, WE RECOMMEND PAYPAL



We have no shipping cart for audio gear.  It would be too complicated to get you a real shipping cost either in the USA or the rest of the world.  You can use PAYPAL, use a credit card, or send a money order or check.

PAYPAL ORDERS

If familiar with PAYPAL,  ask us to send you a PAYPAL Invoice.

PAYPAL is an Internet payment method that is quite popular and easy to use.  We accept payment only is US Dollars.  Go to www.paypal.com.  After logging on, choose  SEND MONEY.  PAYPAL will ask to whom you wish to pay.  In that case, you will should specify: EsotericTT@aol.com.  If you haven't already discussed it with us,  you can use PAYPAL's "NOTE" window to list ITEM, DESCRIPTION, QUANTITY, PRICE and SHIPPING COSTS.  If asked on their form, specify for Good's Or Services.   We only ship to the PAYPAL Confirmed Address.

PLACING A PAYPAL ORDER FOR A SINGLE ITEM

To order a single item that displays shipping charge, you can simply PAYAL the total to us.  To ensure that we get your shipping address from PAYPAL, make sure that you indicate, where asked, that it is for goods or services.   In the PAYPAL area for comments refer to what you are purchasing.  PAYPAL to EsotericTT@aol.com

PLACING A PAYPAL ORDER FOR MULTIPLE ITEMS

To purchase several items, call or email us and request a total. 

CREDIT CARD ORDERS

You can phone or FAX in your order or send us a postal order or email order with the following information:  NAME, ADDRESS, CITY, STATE, ZIP, EXP DATE, and 3-DIGIT SECURITY CODE. 

To send CC info via email, we suggest that you send credit card details in two or three separate emails. Send some of the credit card numbers in one mail, and in others the rest of the numbers and  the 4 digit expiration date and the 3 digit security code from the card's back.  We only ship to the credit card "Billing Address."

NON USA ORDERS

Non USA Orders are welcome.  We accept payment only is US Dollars.  Payments in foreign currency will be not be accepted.

Please contact us for shipping  costs to your country.  We normally ship via the USPS.  This is safe, secure and reasonable in cost.  Often the cost of EXPRESS SHIPPING is approximately the same as PRIORITY.  If UPS, FEDEX, or DHL is desired, we will only ship using your account number.  These agencies charge exorbitant amounts and often charge us more than they estimate.

We will provide all shipping documentation required by the USA for shipment to your country.  If your country has special requirements for documentation, it is your responsibility to inform us of these documents.  It is also your responsibility to negotiate with your own customs departments and to pay all required fees.  We are not responsible for shipments returned by your  country's postal system because they could not find you, reach you by telephone, etc., or because you refuse to pay customs duties. 

To facilitate shipping accuracy,  please we require  the following information:  NAME, STREET ADDRESS, CITY, STATE OR PROVINCE, POSTAL CODE, COUNTRY and TELEPHONE NUMBER.  If possible, provide your EMAIL ADDRESS.

MONEY TRANSFERS (NOT RECOMMENDED)

If you wish to transfer money from you bank to ours, you are responsible for all fees.  Our bank charges a flat $15.00 fee for all incoming bank transfers.  So that will be added to the invoice.  Also be aware that sometimes the sending bank charges you a fee.
 

Be advised that a money transfer is very unreliable because neither you or we will not know the cost till the very end.  The banks are either liars or quite incompetent.  They may or may not use intermediate banks even if they tell you that they do not.  Additional charges can be added.  In short the amount that you think you sent may shrink by the time it get's here.  Then we have to request yet another transfer, and you will pay, pay, pay. Those fees are your responsibility We must receive the full price.

NOTE:  Non-USA buyers, please make sure that your bank does not use an intermediate bank.  Intermediate banks will charge their cost from your transfer to us.  We must receive the net amount asked for.  That fee is your responsibility.
