Ordering Information and Legalese

IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION

PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING!

 
 
 

Please read the the sales policies below before ordering anything from this website. I appreciate your business and support of the BJJY. If you need more information about ordering or if you’d like me to put together a special or custom package for you, please click HERE.

 

PAY FOR YOUR ORDER

 

1] ORDER VIA PAYPAL [PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Visa] or OTHER ELECTRONIC DIRECT DEPOSIT: All of the products on this website can be purchased directly  through PayPal®.  Other means of direct electronic payment are also available. Contact me or read Kokoro for more information.
All parts of your transaction will take place on the secure PayPal site. No information is stored on the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Website.

 2] DIRECT MAIL ORDER WITH PERSONAL CHECK, BANK DRAFT OR MONEY ORDER: You may also order materials directly from me and pay with your own personal check, bank draft or money order. Your ordered items will usually ship within 5-10 days if you use a bank draft or money order Personal checks require 10-15 business days for clearance.

  • Money orders or bank cashier checks  are REQUIRED ON ALL FOREIGN ORDERS IF YOU ARE NOT ORDERING THROUGH PAYPAL.

  • There is a $35+ fee for returned checks, money orders or bank cashier checks!

  • PayPal [including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Visa] may be limited based upon refund costs to me.]

  • ABSOLUTELY NO PERSONAL CHECKS OR CASH ACCEPTED ON FOREIGN ORDERS! 

 

INTERNATIONAL & CANADIAN ORDERS 

  • If you choose Global Priority the postage fee includes “tracking” your parcel. It isn’t insurance but your parcel is safer than uninsured mail in most countries — depending upon where you live.  🙂 In some cases Priority Mail can be insured. If so, I will do it. In some cases I will ship by “Express Mail” rather than Global Priority in order to insure insurance coverage if available.

  • If you reside outside of the U.S. please pick the appropriate order line: “global priority”, “Canada” or “international” so that you will be charged the proper amount for shipping & handling on “buy now” purchases. In some cases I will ship by “Express Mail” rather than Global Priority in order to insure insurance coverage if available.

  • I will ship using  USPS Global Priority or Global Express whenever possible as long as the value of the items ordered doesn’t exceed $100 and the weight doesn’t exceed 2 lb [for Global Express]. It is more cost-effective than air parcel post & quicker too.

  • Why is Canadian & foreign postage so expensive? In order to get insurance coverage, most countries require that the parcel be “registered.” That’s an additional several dollars added onto the already high postage for shipping airmail.

  • If you are a Canadian or foreign customer and have a PayPal account, you can order from me & I will issue a refund if there is any excessive S&H overcharge that will be credited to your PayPal account after I ship your order — unless I can figure out the refund beforehand.

PAYPAL REFUND POLICY REVISION EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 11, 2019:

     PayPal will be changing it’s refund policy, effective October 11, 2019, as follows:

“In line with industry practice and according to our updated policy . . . the fees from the original transaction will not be returned. This policy will not apply to duplicate transactions, voids and most disputed transactions. You can review the PayPal User Agreement for more information on our return policies.”

     As a result, although I’d prefer not to, I will have to follow the same refund policy. I will refund your original purchase price minus the PayPal fee charged to me for your purchase.

     However, since the number of customers requesting refunds is almost non-existent, I don’t see this as an issue. Also, if I decide to give a partial refund on a purchase, you will receive the actual refund as offered or advertised.

 

REFUNDS, RETURNS, SALES TAXES AND OTHER ITEMS: 
–All prices are in US dollars & are subject to change. 
–California sales tax will be added to all orders shipped to California addresses.
–There is a 20% restocking charge on all returned unused/unopened goods plus you have to pay postage & insurance unless the product is defective.

–Non-defective goods altered or used in any manner may not be returned.

-All sales of mp4, pdf, or other digital/electronic products are FINAL. There is ABSOLUTELY no refund available  for any mp4, pdf, or other digital/electronic files purchased by you. Defective merchandise will be replaced.
