Shipping and InsuranceThe Magician’s Cottage typically uses the USPS as its courier. Depending on the size and weight of your merchandise, your package will be shipped either by First Class mail, Media mail, or by Priority Mail. All parcels are shipped with a tracking number. Some parcels require signature confirmation.
Ordering Multiple Items: When ordering multiple items, we may be able to ship them in one parcel at a lower postage rate. But please understand that not all items can be combined (too big, too heavy, too high risk of damage). We try to provide cost-effective shipping methods. If shipping charges appear to be noticeably higher when checking out, we will credit your PayPal account the difference between ‘actual charges’ and what you paid, less packing and handling costs.
Once your package has been accepted by the courier, the Magician’s Cottage has no control over it. Therefore, we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage caused by any courier used for delivery. Issues with shipments need to be initiated by you to the courier. We can help by providing tracking number and postal receipt. To protect yourself, we encourage you to consider insuring your parcel before submitting an online order. By calling us, we will provide a revised invoice that is adjusted to include insurance.
Expedited Shipping: If you want expedited or next-day delivery service, call us before submitting an online order. By calling us, we will provide a revised invoice that has been adjusted to include expedited delivery.
Shipping Delays: Every effort is made to get your order to our courier within two working days. We will not be responsible for any delay caused by an incorrect shipping address. We only ship to the address given to us by PayPal. Please note that we are unable to ship to a PO Box. Sometimes delivery can be impacted by unforeseen occurrences, which are unavoidable and beyond the control of the Magician’s Cottage. We do our best to ensure prompt delivery; however, we cannot be held liable for late deliveries, or for delays caused by an incorrect shipping address, or by unforeseen occurrences.
“Refused” or “Non-deliverable” Returned Packages: “Refused” or “non-deliverable” returned packages will be treated as non-defective returns and refunded minus a 15% restocking fee and both shipping costs to and back.
Shipping Errors: If we made a mistake and you received an incorrect item, please contact us immediately at (919) 607-9529. ↑Back to Top
Damage to Parcel – Your ResponsibilitiesSome products are shipped with the request that the courier obtain your signature, or that of your assigned representative, before the parcel is officially released to you. In case of any physical damage to the outer or inner packaging, you agree to either (1) refuse to accept delivery or (2) accept delivery only after putting a suitable remark on the proof of delivery receipt document. Magician’s Cottage retains the right to withhold refund/replacement of the damaged product if you fail to put a note about the nature of damage on the courier’s receipt confirmation slip. If there is any damage to the actual product, you are required to inform the Magician’s Cottage within 24 hours of receipt of the product.↑Back to Top
Product ExchangesThe Magician’s Cottage does not issue store/site credits, or offer product exchanges in lieu of a PayPal credit. So please consider your purchase carefully before ordering. With such a large selection of timepieces and magic apparatus, you’ll likely have questions. To make a smart decision, please take the time to call us and ask. We will be forthright in addressing your concerns.↑Back to Top
Defective MerchandiseOur precision craftsmen are meticulous making your timepiece and accessories. Before mailing, we check these products for flawless operation. We also check out our magic apparatus in the same manner. In the rare instance your item appears to be faulty, or has a missing part, or appears to be broken, please call us within 10 days upon receipt. We’ll do our best to make things right. If there is a product defect, we will replace the item, or one very similar to it, as soon as possible. The Magician’s Cottage will pay for return postage as well as postage for the replacement. In the event we are unable to find a suitable Timepiece replacement, we will credit your PayPal account for the purchase price including all shipping charges. Magic apparatus, excluding timepieces, are usually in a moderately used or gently used condition, and typically are one-of- a-kind. Since we will seldom have a replacement item in stock, we will credit your PayPal account for the full amount including postage.↑Back to Top
Neodymium Magnet SafetyThe neodymium magnets that we sell with many of our Timepiece Accessories are extremely strong. They must be handled with care to avoid personal injury or damage to the magnets or to your Timepiece. The Magician’s Cottage Site urges all buyers of these products to be knowledgeable with the proper handling of neodymium magnets before making a purchase. For detailed information about Neodymium Magnet Safety (provided by K&J Magnetics, Inc.), click HERE.
Product Images and DescriptionsWe work hard to make product descriptions accurate and complete, but occasionally an error or typo might slip through the cracks. Do keep in mind that product EFFECTS are written from the vantage point of a spectator. We also do our best to photograph a product to accurately reflect its condition and color. Rarely do we photograph the “modus operandi “ of used magic apparatus, although we may choose to do so when photographing or describing accessories in our Timepiece Product Line. (We may also disclose the modus operandi in our video files for Timepiece Products and/or Accessories.) There may be slight color variations for any photograph or video you see in our Site due to the photographic process, and how your device renders/displays colors. Some of the wristwatches photographed on our Site and also used in our Instructions and Videos may look somewhat different from the one you received. Our wristwatch styles may vary just slightly based on vendor inventory. However, our Premier and PRO models have the same functionality as described in the Site and in our Instructions. In addition, we are careful to ensure that the one you ordered is identical in function and appearance as the one we identify, photograph, and describe on our Site at the time you place your order. If you feel an item was grossly misrepresented, let us know. It is never our intention to mislead. We are here to serve you. ↑Back to Top
