ORDER THROUGH THIS WEB SITE
You can order through this web site. Payments are processed through PayPal. You do not need to sign up with PayPal in order to complete your transaction. If you wish to place an order without using a PayPal account, simply click on the link on the left side of the screen under the heading: Don't have a PayPal account and you do not want to order online?
PHONE ORDER BY CREDIT CARD
Instead you can also place a phone order to (916) 419 6649. You will need a valid credit card. Visa, MC, Discover, and AMX are acceptable. Card number, expiration date, and 3 or 4 digit approval code are necessary. Your credit card billing address and shipping address are necessary along with your phone number and an email address if you have one. We do not maintain a data base with your credit card. So if you want to place another order later, you will have to again provide your credit card information. NOTE: You must provide accurate billing and shipping address info. We cannot complete a transaction if any error in your credit card numbers or billing address is made. We cannot successfully ship to you if any error in the shipping address is made.
PREPAID CHECK OR MONEY ORDER
Checks and money orders are accepted to Bob Szabo, PO Box 340873, Sacramento, CA 95834-0873. Orders will not be shipped until full payment is received and cleared. Checks from the US or from overseas MUST be made out to Bob Szabo. We are NOT able to process foreign checks made out any other way, and they will be returned.
COD FOR US ADDRESSES ONLY
You can also call in a COD order to US delivery addresses only. Your phone number, address, and email address (if you have one) are necessary at the time of the order. With your order, we will notify you of the amount of the COD payment. We will ship to your address or to your local US Post Office. Payment in cash or a prepaid US Postal money order is acceptable. Sorry but company checks, personal checks, other money orders, or cashier's checks are NOT acceptable.
If your purchase is a gift and it cannot be delivered in time, we can email or FAX a certificate of purchase to give to your friend, collegue, or loved one in the mean time until your purchase arrives. This is especially helpful for last minute purchases during holidays such as Christmas, Father's Day, and birthdays.
