How do I buy? Popsicle uses the Paypal shopping cart system. What's more, they have updated it so you no longer need to be a Paypal member to use it! When you checkout you may simply use any credit card info you like and it will process your order quickly and send you a confirmation email. If you are a paypal member, simply log in as usual. So anyone can purchase and use either an ATM or regular credit card. The choice is yours.
To purchase items, simply click the add to cart icon for that item. The cart screen will appear showing your purchase. You can close or minimize the screen, the info will be saved either way. From this screen you can increase quantity or remove items as you desire. However, when you are ready to check out you must first go to the step below.
How do I determine shipping? Due to the complexity of items and that we ship world wide, adding shipping to the script was impossible. When you are ready to checkout, click the shipping tab at your left. It will take you to a page that will show you how to determine your charges. (and we even have a shipping cap) Simply click the appropriate tab on that page to add shipping, and then you can click checkout from your shopping cart page. It's that easy!
Where does my order ship from? Toronto, Canada.
What if I forget to add shipping costs? It would seem like the obvious thing would be to remind you and have you submit it. However, I get charged 2 seperate paypal fees then which can really add up. If you mess up and forget, your payment will be refused and the order stopped. You will be sent a kindly email stating the problem and asking for you to resubmit the order correctly. What's more, if you're trying to get the last copy of something you could lose it to someone else while this gets resolved. So to prevent this unpleasantry for all of us, please do it right the first time! Thanks!
Who am I dealing with? My name is Luke. I discovered Scandinavian pop music when a member of my high school band introduced me to Beagle and The Cardigans when they were releasing their first albums in the early 90ís. When I bought a computer in 1999 one of the first things I did was get online and do a tape trade with a Swedish fellow named Tommy who got me into dozens of great Swedish bands. It was all downhill from there. Spinguy from the indiespinzone designed the site and we collaborate on which bands to stock. Itís about quality here at Popsicle, not quantity.
To get to the Indiepop Spinzone if you got here some other way, simply click the icon at the top right of your screen.
Where is my order? Times are such that customs can be unpredictable. Most orders to the states arrive within a week to 10 days, but on odd occasions it can take longer. I only ask you be patient and know I feel your pain. It will arrive. World orders, well, you know how long it takes for things to get to you I am sure.
Can I email and request items not listed? Yes.
I was told an item I ordered was not in stock anymore. How did this happen? As things sell on a daily basis I inform John at the Spinzone when I no longer have an item and he removes them from the listings. So there is the chance that until I tell him and he removes it you may order it. In such a case I will refund you the amount as well as shipping if it so effects that. Given that we are dealing with many OOP titles I can't do backorders or give any guarantee of getting another copy soon, if ever. If you see it and want it, don't wait!
