How To Send Your Collection

Step 1: Provide a List of What You’re Selling

Send a record of the books and DVDs you intend to sell via email at heyanimecafe@gmail.com. Only the approved items in your provided list will be considered and inspected for purchase.

Expect the following rates for your collectibles:

  • Manga Books: $0.25 to $3.00 each
  • Anime DVDs: $0.25 to $5.00 each
Step 2: Wait for a Confirmation From Us About the Allowed, Sellable Items

Within 24 hours or so, our staff will let you know the approved books and DVDs we plan to purchase along with the estimated amount you will be paid. This assessed payment is still not final since we still have to see the items to determine if they are acceptable by our standards.

Step 3: Ship Your Approved Items to Us

Your package must be shipped and postmarked within a week of receiving the confirmed list. Please include a copy of this list in the parcel and make sure to use acceptable plastic wrapping materials to package your books and DVDs since we are not liable for any loss or damage to the merchandise during transit.

You should also use a reputable shipping service to send your approved items so that your package can be tracked and insured. We highly recommend USPS Media Mail for boxes up to 70lbs. and UPS Ground Delivery for larger packages than that. If you use either one of these delivery services, we will reimburse your shipping costs.

Send your parcel to either of the following locations:

Step 4: Receive Payment

Our only method of payment is through PayPal credit. That is why you should have a PayPal account with a verified mailing address. We usually send our payment for the items within three days after we receive your package.
