Information For International Buyers
I welcome international sales. In fact, a great portion of the phones I ship go "overseas". The Ericofon is probably the most internationally used telephone.
Shipping Costs And Methods
To give you an example of shipping costs. To ship an Ericofon to most of Europe, it costs around US$17, to most of the Austral-Asia area US$18. When you get into heavier phones, you will be looking at more money for shipping. Most old American phones have a shipping weight of 6 to 9 pounds. You can go to www.usps.com to see what the approximate cost will be.
I ship everything via the postal service using "Airmail Letter Post". This is the cheapest. If you want insured shipping, then it has to go "Airmail Parcel Post" and costs considerably more. You can chose the cheaper ground shipping, but this takes forever and three days, I don't recommend it. If you have a shipper account with a carrier such as FedEx or UPS, I will gladly ship using your account.
Shipping to Europe generally takes about 6 to 8 days, depending on the season. Shipping to the Austral-Asian areas is about 9 to 11 days.
There are several options for payment, I will list them in order of popularity.
International money order. This is probably the safest method. I need to have the money order made out in US$.
Payment via Paypal. This is a very handy service to be on. If you pay with Paypal, your phone goes right out. I can send you a Paypal money request and that will help you get signed up. Just remember though, for most new international members, it takes three or four days to finalize your membership.
Bank Transfer. This is very expensive, and even costs me US$20 to receive the money. If you want to pay via bank transfer, contact me for my bank information, but also be prepared to add US$20 to the cost of your phone.
I'm asked nearly every time, "Can I use this phone where I live?". The answer is yes. All phone systems are are interchangeable as far as phones are concerned. I have found that the North American "RJ11" modular plug is very common and easy to get an adapter for. I do carry a couple of adapters for some regions, but not many.
The best advice I have for you is to find an adapter where you live. Just go to any electronics store and tell them you want to use a phone from North America with an RJ11 plug on it. They will know what you need, and they are generally inexpensive.
