eBay Auctions Terms of Sale

All sales are final. No refunds, returns, exchanges, or turndowns.

Condition: Items are offered “as is”, with no warranty. Known defects are listed, but the absence of any indicated deficiencies does not mean the item may not have deficiencies.

Payment: Successful bidders are required to submit full payment (including New York State sales tax, unless otherwise exempt) within 2 business days of the bid award.
