- We require that you purchase
illusion by either bank wire or by Cashier's Check.
Please note: Though bank wire is more costly
than sending a Cashier's Check, it is quicker.
Due to the amount of fraud going on right now, a
payment with a Cashier's Check could be placed on
hold for up to 10 business days. You, as the
buyer, are responsible for all fees in addition to
the sales price of the illusion or effect whether
you choose to pay through bank wire or Cashier's
Check. We will also accept Paypal.
Please know that Paypal can charge up to 4.9% and
sometimes more. If you choose to pay with
Paypal, that cost will be added to your total cost.
- Once we receive your payment
and it has cleared the bank (generally 1 business
day for bank wire, up to 10 business days after
receipt of Cashier's Check, or 3-5 business days
with Paypal), we will notify the owner of the
illusion to prepare for shipping. The owner
will let us know the dimensions and weight of the
illusion or effect, and we will pass that
information along to you, as the buyer. You
will then get quotes from shipping companies and
choose the shipping method that is best for you and
for the owner. We will notify you once the
item has shipped. Upon receipt of the item,
you will have 24 hours to determine that it is to
your satisfaction. If you are not satisfied,
you will have to pay for the shipping back to the
owner of the illusion. Once the owner receives
that illusion back and says it is in the same
condition as it was when he/she sent it, we will
then refund your money. We hate to have to be
this particular, but we have come across some that
cannot be pleased and have tried to return an
illusion that was exactly what it was said to be.
- We highly recommend that you
purchase insurance. If you do not purchase
insurance, we are not responsible for the damage to
the item. If the item is damaged in transit
and you did not purchase insurance, the owner will
still be paid their asking price for the illusion
and you keep the damaged illusion and will be out
the cost. It is very important to
remember that shipping is always the responsibility
of the buyer and at times that may also require the
purchase of a crate to ship the illusion or effect
- Used Magic Illusions and the
Seller ARE NOT responsible for any additional fees
on illusions/props that your country may add such
as, but not limited to customs, broker fees (to help
complete customs), and government taxes.
We and the Seller are also not responsible for any
additional fees such as if your item requires a
special truck that needs a gate lift, mileage fees,
etc. if you choose to have the item delivered to
your door. These above fees cannot be
estimated in the shipping quote; therefore, you need
to plan for any additional fees that your country or
place of shipment may require.
- You may not return the item
because you decide you do not like it or don't need
it anymore. If you return the item without
trying to resolve the situation first, your money
will not be refunded.
- Please note: If you
request a to put a deposit down to hold an item,
this deposit is non-refundable. We are
sorry that we cannot give this money back, but it is
incentive to follow through with your order and it
keeps us from losing money on a possible sale that
could have taken place with another buyer while we
were holding the item for you.
- If for some reason it is
determined by all parties that you may receive a
refund of your purchase, please note we are unable
to return shipping fees, bank wiring fees, and/or
Paypal charges. This is money that does not
come back to us; therefore, we cannot return it.
- Important for overseas
buyers: When your item ships, we have to
give it a declared value, which is generally your
purchase price. However, if you contact
us and request that we claim a lower declared value
than what you paid, that is the amount you will
receive as refund should something happen in
transit. For instance, if you purchase an
illusion for $1,500, but request that we ship the
illusion with a declared value of $1,000, and then
it gets ruined in shipping, the seller will receive
their full requested sales price, and you will
receive the $1,000 back from the shipping company
because this is the amount you requested as the

danger. By purchasing any illusion, the Buyer

any other affiliations are not responsible for any
injuries, deaths, etc. that may occur from the

business days. We will be happy to send your
money this way if you would still prefer this
method. However, there is a $5.00 charge for
the Cashier's Check. We will also be willing
to wire you your payment for a fee of $30.00.
We are willing to try to accommodate your needs as
much as we can.

fair selling value. Please note that our
listed sales price is generally not the the amount
we receive due to negotiations, etc.

we receive. You are not obligated to accept
those offers, but we at least have to try in order
to move your illusion or effect .

illusion or effect, you are giving us the right to
use whatever means necessary to move the item such
as, but not limited to, the use of Facebook,
