Contacting a seller

You must be logged in to contact a seller about an item. When you click on the thumbnail image to bring up the detailed description, you'll see a link to Contact This Seller.

When you click that link, you'll be taken to a form that will allow you to send a question related to that particular item.

This feature is designed to allow you to contact a seller with a specific question related to an item. It is not designed to provide you with access to seller's contact information for any other reason, so we appreciate your adherence to these guidelines and your respect for other member's contact information.

Buying an item

You must be logged in to buy an item. You can view any item and its details without being logged in, but will not have the option to contact the seller or purchase the item.

When you are logged in, you'll see the Buy button on the category listings of items and in the detailed description of the item. It's extremely important that you look at the detailed description for each item. You need to know as much as possible about the item, including the seller's accepted payment methods, before clicking the link to buy it. Making a purchase is an explicit acceptance of the terms as they're specified in the listing.

Payment options

Sellers have the option to allow a variety of payment methods for their sales. Those include credit card, check, money order, and PayPal.

It's important to check each item before you buy, to find out what methods the seller accepts. Only buy an item if you're willing to submit payment by one of the accepted methods.

Here at the Toy Peddler, we accept all of those payment methods for registration/renewal fees and listing credit sales. Credit card payments must be made with a Visa or Mastercard, PayPal payments should be sent to our PayPal account under the email address pb@thetoypeddler.com. Checks and money orders can be mailed to us at:

Buyer obligations

Just as we hold seller's to a strict list of obligations, we expect just as much from buyers on our site. By agreeing to list items accurately, package them well and ship them promptly, seller's have the right to expect an equal commitment from buyers. Toward that end, we expect all buyers to:

  • Only click the "Buy" button when you are 100% positive about completing the purchase. That means you should be ready to submit payment and have the available funds to cover the cost of the item. It also means that you agree to abide by the terms of the listing; by clicking the Buy button, you are implicitly accepting the payment terms and description of the item, so pay close attention to these before making any purchase.
  • Submit payment in a timely fashion. If you agree to pay by PayPal or credit card, we expect you to submit the payment or provide the card number to the seller within three business days of clicking the "Buy" button and receiving confirmation of the total for the order (if necessary). If you are paying by check or money order, that payment should be in the mail within three business days, ensuring prompt receipt by the seller within a reasonable amount of time.

Tracking your purchases

You can keep track of your purchases by accessing the Your Account area of the site. Click on Your Account in the menu, and you'll see the link to your list of Purchases in the main menu for your account.

Your items will be organized by date, and you can easily access all of the important details of each purchase by clicking the linked Order ID number. If you no longer have your confirmation email, you can use these links to find the seller's email address and other contact information in order to complete the purchase.
