Shipping Fees and Methods

Updated Shipping Rates as at April 15, 2021.

We offer a variety of shipping methods at GreatCollections. When you are ready to pay for your open invoice, please go to MyGC and click on Buyer Invoices. Here you will see any auction and/or Buy Now item in your fixed "cart". You can now select a shipping method and pay for your items.

Since we have a very flexible fixed "cart" system, you may combine multiple auction wins and Buy Now items into the same shipment. We encourage you to take advantage of the shipping savings!

All shipments are insured against loss and/or damage.
