Terms of Sale & Guarantee
All prices on this site are in US$. Other currencies accepted at the current exchange rate. (See "Payment") below.
Covers in the "BuckaCover" section of this site are priced from $1.50 for fresh new additions (some premium covers slightly higher), down to US$0.60 each, averaging out at about $1.00 each.
The price of thousands of covers from previous uploads drop each time we add fresh covers.
(See BuckaCover Pricing page for details.)
The Cover Box holds our premium covers, however there are many inexpensive covers there too. We don't believe in holding on to covers for a long time,
so we periodically place older items on the "Discount List", where they also drop regularly in price. See the "discounted covers" option in the search box in the Cover Box.
- Minimum Order
- The minimum order from this site is $10.00 plus postage. (see below).
We hope you will appreciate that this is a high volume, labor intensive effort. If you can't find enough for yourself, buy a few for your friends
or youngsters! Unfortunately, due to the high cost of handling small orders, we cannot accept orders under $10, even if the order is being added to a previous order.
Your order may include items from both BuckaCover and Cover Box.
- We accept orders placed through our shopping cart only.
Due to the high incidence of errors when customers transcribe stock numbers, we do not accept orders placed by email or by mail. If there is a reason you can not use the shopping cart, please let us know - maybe we can fix your problem.
- We do not ship everywhere!
- Sorry, but we do not accept orders from all countries of the world. This policy is the result of years of experience shipping all over the world, and knowing where we have consistent problems with delivery.
We do not accept orders from the following countries.
- All of Africa (including Egypt) except South Africa
- Russia and most former Soviet Republics (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia are ok)
- Mexico and all of Central and South America, Cuba, Haiti , Dominican Republic,
- India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal
- Bulgaria, Albania, Moldova, Greece (new addition - sorry, too many problems)
- PR China, Cambodia, Myanmar,
- Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Yemen,
- Postage Charges
These postage charges apply only to orders from the website, not eBay purchases. See "Combining Orders" below.)
All orders are carefully packed - protected with plastic sleeves and corrugated envelope stiffeners. You may make multiple orders. These rates apply to the shipment. We will adjust or refund any excess postage figured on multiple orders.

A Note About International Orders
Please note that due to tightening UPU regulations, all BuckaCover orders must be sent by Small Packet service. We can no longer send even small orders by Letter Mail. Small Packet rates start at approximately double letter rates. The above rates are well below our actual cost of postage, as we have always had the approach that we will share a significant part of the shipping costs.
Tracking and Insurance
All our shipments are covered by our own philatelic insurance policy. We will pay for tracked mail service (at our discretion) for larger orders.
(Usually over $300). If you require tracking for safety, please add $16.00 to the postage charges for orders less than $300. Tracked orders will be sent
by Tracked Parcel and, as required by postal regulations, will carry a Customs Declaration. You need to be familiar with your own country's procedures and
charges for clearing imported packages. We cannot help you with this, nor avoid it.
- Combining Orders from BuckaCover and Cover Box (and eBay)
Your selections from both inventories (BuckaCover and Cover Box) on this site will automatically be combined
by our Shopping Cart. You may go back and forth between the two inventories as much as you like.
Your shopping cart will automatically combine any purchases from the two different inventories!
Purchase anything from our eBay auctions, pay the postage as listed on the eBay invoice, and any additional covers from our website ride along free. Minimum website purchase of $10 still applies. You may ignore the automatically generated postage amount on your BuckaCover confirmation, or request a new PayPal invoice. If paying by PayPal, pay
the eBay invoice, and then pay for BuckaCover items with a separate payment.
Combined shipping on multiple website orders
We know there is a lot to look through at one sitting, particularly when we do a new upload! You may place multiple orders and have them all count toward
one shipping charge as long as the orders are placed within a reasonable period. We will adjust / refund excess postage.
- Orders will be shipped promptly upon receipt of payment.
Invoices are normally expressed in US$. Canadian customers may request an invoice in C$, converted at the current mid-market exchange rate provided by xe.com.
Canadian buyers in "HST provinces" are subject to HST at the rate applicable to their province:
(ON 13%, PE, NS, NL, NB 15%). All others provinces, 5% GST.
Many forms of payment are available, including credit cards (through the Paypal gateway -- Paypal account not required). Please see our "Payments Page" for more details.
Cash payments may be sent in Euros, Pounds Sterling, US dollars or Canadian dollars only.
We reserve the right to return items to stock without notice if payments are not received in a timely manner (one week from the order date for PayPal and other online methods, three weeks for mailed payments).
- Additional information about BuckaCover covers
- Sorry, but at this price, we absolutely cannot offer additional information about covers listed on the BuckaCover portion of this site.
Please do not ask us for more information about the cover, closeups, scans of the back or anything else. Remember, we're talking about an average of $1 each here!
If you can't tell you want it from the scan, don't buy it! We will be glad to address any questions you have about covers in the Cover Box portion of the site.
- Condition & Guarantee
Condition is as you see it in the scan. We do not list covers that have significant faults that are not visible in the scan.
Commercial covers may have insignificant opening tears or flap tears that are not visible in the scan, but never anything that in our opinion makes them undesireable for $1.00.
If you require perfect, selected condition for all your covers, you probably shouldn't be shopping in a dollar box. If you are ever truly unhappy
with a purchase, let us know and we'll make an adjustment, but returning one or two covers is a waste of everybody's time and postage!
Your satisfaction is unconditionally guaranteed. If you are not happy with a cover for any reason, we will
cheerfully refund your money - no questions asked.
(We are confident in our stock and are happy to make this guarantee, but please do
not use this as an approval service and order more covers than you intend to buy - it costs us time and effort to restock.)
