Shipping & Returns Information
Here's the basics.
Magazines ship by USPS Priority Mail. Since the minimum for a flat rate mailer is now $9.60 (and we only charge $8.00), we suggest you purchase more than one magazine. We can usually fit two into a Priority Mailer, but the best bet is 3 or more magazines per order, because we cap all shipping at $18.00 (Medium Flat Rate Box).
Everything is too expensive today and there is not much we here at Mostly Magazines can do about it. But we can save you on shipping. Note that while books qualify as Media Mail, magazines do not, because they contain advertising (we don't make the rules; the USPS does, and that is the way it is).
Order multiple magazines. Not only will you get more reading, viewing, and collecting pleasure, you'll pay a fair price for shipping. Nobody will ever pay more than $18.00 for magazines shipped from our store, even if they order 100.
Books, LPs, CDs, and DVDs ship by media mail. Very inexpensive, and slow, but subject to search by USPS, which is why we use Priority Mail for magazines. We've had shipments disappear in the past and simply won't ship magazines Media Mail.
Please note that Book weights may not be accurate. They will usually show up in the shipping section as a fraction (0.25, 0.50, etc.). We do this so that our shipping calculator will find the best (lowest) price for shipping.
Everything Else ships either USPS 1st Class or Priority Mail, sometimes, FedEx or UPS, calculated by weight. Maximum shipping cost: $18.00.
RETURNS: Downtown Magazine and the Mostly Magazine store honors returns within 30 days of purchase. We sell quality items and usually grade them lower than their actual condition and sell at very fair prices.
Mostly Magazines ships only to the USA. No exclusions. Shipping outside the USA is ridiculously expensive and a pain in the behind because of customs forms and restrictions.
