About PayPal
VisaMasterCardDiscoverAmerican ExpresseCheck

Q. What is PayPal?

A. PayPal is an account-based system that lets anyone with an email address securely send and receive online payments using their credit card or bank account. You no longer have to be a member to pay online with a credit card.

Q. Is PayPal Secure?

A. Yes. PayPal uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to keep your information safe. In addition, when you send a payment using PayPal, the recipient won't receive sensitive financial information like your credit card or bank account number. This way, you don't have to worry about paying people you don't know.

Q. Why have we chosen PayPal as our payment method?

A. PayPal is one of the most trusted method of payment on the Internet today.
PayPal protects the customer and monitors every purchase.
PayPal is used by over 6 million sites on the internet.

Q. What are the advantages for the customer?

A. Your credit card number is never sent or seen by the merchant.
Your transactions are monitored and guaranteed by PayPal.
Once your PayPal Account is set up, there is no easier way to buy online.

Q. What do I have to do to get a PayPal Account?

A. When you make your first purchase on our site, you will be redirected to PayPal. On the PayPal site, you can easily create a PayPal account for yourself. There is no cost to create a PayPal account. The next time you buy on ANY PayPal approved site, you will only need to provide your password. The process is very simple and very safe.

Shipping and Handling

NON UNITED STATES CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE: The shipping and handling charges quoted on the listing pages of this website are for the United States only. Outside the United States the cost varies greatly and is usually more. The cost will be determined after we have your mailing address and a list of the items that you wish to purchase. All non-U.S. items will need to be packed, and weighed for available mailing options and price quotes. Customers outside the United States will not be able to complete the checkout process until their address is known. You will be instructed to send an e-mail with the items you are interested in with your mailing address. At that time your total s/h cost will be figured and you will be sent an e-mail with the total cost.

Please note: Honesty is our policy here. On any and all customs and/or insurance forms forms the exact purchase price will be claimed.Customs forms will be marked as merchandise and not as gifts or samples.We will not lie on these legal forms in order to obtain lower duty tax or import charges.Please do not ask us to do this.

There is a $2.50 minimum shipping & handling fee. Multiple items or lots purchased are automaticly combined on the check out page for lower s/h costs.

Because of the high costs involved we prefer not to offer Express Mail service. Packages are generally mailed out either the day payment is received or the next business day by First Class, Priority Mail, or Parcel Post Mail. If Express Mail is an absolute must, please expect to pay a minimum of $25.00 for this service and packages will still only be able to go out on business days.

Delivery Confirmation is optional for sales from this website. The cost is 75 cents. If chosen this cost will be automatically added to your s/h total on the check out page.

Even if requested, no item(s) will leave here simply stuffed in an envelope. Self addressed stamped envelopes are not accepted. Every outgoing item is well wrapped, padded, and packaged.

Time Passages Nostalgia Company uses the United States Postal Service exclusively. Requests for U.P.S., FedEx, or other carriers are not honored.

Orders processed through PayPal will be sent to the mailing addresses that they provide for us. Please be sure that your mailing address on your PayPal account is current and correct.


Mailing insurance is extra and must be requested. There is an option button on the check out page. You can trust that all items will be packaged with great care and mailed. By sending payment for purchases you agree not to hold Time Passages Nostalgia Company responsible or liable in the event that packages are lost, stolen, or damaged while in possesion of the U.S. Postal Service.We have found that there is no recourse if insurance is not purchased. We have no control over your item(s) once your package leaves here. Here are the U.S.P.S. insurance rates.Other countries are different and mail to some countries is not insurable.

  • $1.70 for up to $50.00 insurance
