Which includes but not limited to direct, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages
Not all items are guaranteed to be in stock when your order is filled. The fill rate is approximately 98%. It is simply impossible to have a database of over 150,000 items and have it be 100% correct. The database can never be perfect and unanticipated outages do occur. You will be properly refunded or credited for any outages. Unless the shortage is more than 20% of your order, you will not be notified first unless you let us know otherwise.
Scott's Comics is not responsible for any damages that you may have for not being able to completely fill an order. Please let us know how you would want to handle any out of stock items when checking out (like contacting you first or cancelling the order).
The item scans on the website are provided to help you identify the item, but is not the specific item being offered, nor does it represent the condition/grade of the item being offered. The item scans are stock scans and are not a scan of the actual item.
If it is the actual item, it will be noted in the description.
HOT COMICS THAT APPRECIATE QUICKLY
Recent TV and movie announcements and mentions on speculation websites have caused some comics to greatly increase in value, sometimes 3-10+ times in just 24 hours. In response to this. Scott's Comics reserves the right to decline orders of books that have quickly appreciated in price. A recent example is the announcement of the Ant Man film that caused Avengers #181 to go up from $4-10 to $30-60 in one day . Think about this in reverse: would you want to sell us a hot comic now worth $30 for only $4? I doubt you would.
Generally this policy is enacted if the the item has gone up at least 3 times its original value. We try to remove these items quickly or adjust the prices when we hear about them, but since this is a part time business, it is sometimes too late before they have been ordered. Scott's Comics apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, but we want you to understand if you order these types of comics - you will likely not get them. In all cases, you will be refunded any monies paid. If you think this policy is unfair, please do not order.
Scott's Comics reserves the right to cancel any order with a complete refund of payment to the customer, if any. Generally, cancelled orders are due to non-payment by the customer (bad credit card, didn't mail payment, bounced check, etc.).
We also reserve the right to decline orders from what we consider "Bad Customers". Behaviors could include customers that: return too many items, have unreasonable expectations, use credit card or Paypal chargebacks before contacting us, airing grievances or problems on online forums, or use abusive language. We would rather you shop somewhere else.
Generally, we do not want to change your order once it has been placed, but are willing to work with you as long as it has not been pulled or shipped. Scott's Comics is not responsible for change requests that are not received prior to shipment. If you want to change or cancel an order that has been pulled (but not shipped) there may be a 15% restocking fee (maximum $5) for the unwanted items.
