Make your PAYPAL Payment here:
Paypal is the #1 on-line payment method. Paypal also accepts most Credits Cards without an Account.
To send a Paypal payment, please use the below "PAY NOW" button.
If needed, my direct Paypal payment address to use is: dave [at] davebarton [dot] com.

                                                 PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
You will find that Paypal will NOT automatically populate your order dollar amount, so AFTER
please enter
your order total in the "Item Price" box and then click "Continue."
Entering a description of your order is not necessary if you have made an order using the shopping cart.

This is how your order dollar amount is added.  Click "Pay Now" below to find this payment page.
                                                             >>  Click image to enlarge.  <<
 Please read above directions first . . . . . .   
and when ready,

       Then enter your Order Number if known >>>                 click "Pay Now"                                                                                         

For your security, you should not send your credit card information using email.
To make things safe, I use a secure online credit card processor that will allow you to fill in your credit card information safely.
If you have placed an order using our online shopping cart, you will be directed to this page. Please click the below "Buy Now" button to begin your credit card payment.
Please remember your order total amount. You will be asked to enter it shortly.
If you don't know it, a copy of your order should be in your email shortly. You can email me if you have any questions. CLICK HERE.

Also if you have an Order Number, please enter it on the PO Number box. This is not absolutely required, but It helps me keep track of orders when I have several at once.

Some of you are confused by the security measure used below in this credit card processing application.  When you see this thing below, read the words on the images and then type them into the text box (i.e.: footpath doctor).
If you don't like the images or can't see them clearly, click the button shown to regenerate new images and try again.
Sorry, yes it's required.


Cash, Checks, Money Orders, Wire Transfers, Chase QuickPay.
A 5% discount is applied to all sales paid by cash or any of these methods. The discount is made automatically during your shopping cart check-out process when you select the cash payment method.  The send to address will be emailed with a copy of your order.

CASH:  Cash is accepted, however there may be a risk in sending cash in the mail.  I'll leave the choice to you.

CHECK/MONEY ORDERS:   A personal check or money order may be used for any purchase.  The U.S. Post Office sells money orders as does Walmart and many other stores. 

CHASE QUICKPAY (works for USA customers only):   Chase Bank now offers a simple and secure way to make or receive a payment to or from anyone with an email address. 
Similar to Paypal, except they charge NO fees.  Also, you do not need to have a Chase account.... only one person needs one (I have one of course).  And both accounts must be USA banks. 
If you want to try this service, you may send me an email and I'll invoice you through Chase, or if you're already familiar with Chase QuickPay, you may send payment using my email address: dbarton [at] linkline [dot] com.  More info can be found at:  Also, there is no fee for this service from Chase.  Other banks may charge a fee to send to Chase. So far I only know about Wells Fargo, who I was told charged a customer $3.00 for a transaction.  Use email address dbarton [at] linkline [dot] com.

INTERNATIONAL MONEY ORDERS:  Many countries offer International Money Orders.  If you are sending a Money Order from a country outside the USA, please make the order in U.S. Dollars (USD).

INTERNATIONAL WIRE or INTERNATIONAL BANK TRANSFERS:   Wire transfers are accepted for payment sent in USD. 
Keep in mind that my bank charges a $15.00 fee for me to receive a bank transfer.  You will need to add this $15.00 fee to your payment.  Please allow about 5-10 days for a wire payment to arrive.  Email me for account details.

Fundamental Ordering 101:  For those of you who don't get along well with computers, here are instructions for ordering just about anything in these pages. 
Step 1:   Find an item you want to order.
Step 2:   Enter order quantity, choose item (and any options if there are any) and click 'Add to Cart.'
Step 3:   When done shopping, find a link that says: When done shopping, proceed to shipping: CLICK HERE'.  Click the 'CLICK HERE.'
Step 4:   Look over the shipping options and choose one. Then click
'Add to Cart.'
Step 5:   Click 'View Cart' if you're ready to check out or if you want to see your cart.
Step 6:   You are now in your shopping cart. If you change your mind and want to continue shopping, click 'Continue Shopping.'  If you're ready to check out, click 'Check Out Now.'
Step 7:   Fill out the 'Ordered By' address boxes on the left side. The items in RED are required to advance further. If you're in the USA, don't forget to choose your state. If you're in a different country, don't forget to choose that. If the box next to 'Deliver To is the same as Ordered By' is checked, it will automatically fill those address boxes.  If you need the delivery address to be different, uncheck that box.
Step 8:   The 'Comments Welcome' text box is there for anything you might want to say.  Maybe there is a special instruction you want to tell us.  Anything can go there.
Step 9:   Check the 'Payment Method' that you prefer.
Step 10: Click 'Continue Check Out.'
Step 11: Please read the return policy and check that box.
Step 12: You may review your order. Then click 'Finalize Check Out.'
Step 13:  Your order has been made.  Now you need to make a payment. Click on 'CLICK HERE TO GO TO PAYMENT OPTIONS.'  That is in THIS page (above).
Thank you.

USA destinations:

  Most items shipped are shipped using USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail (choice made by customer).  I use reinforced envelopes for First Class Mail and sturdy Priority Mail boxes or envelopes for Priority Mail.  Small items, such as stickers, horn buttons and sometimes relays, are most often sent by First Class Mail because it's simple, efficient and inexpensive.  Priority Mail is usually faster than First Class Mail.  
All orders are shipped using the tracking service and the tracking number is always sent to your email automatically when your order label is printed.

For the FASTEST service, almost any order can be shipped using
USPS Priority Mail Express (Express Mail).  Express Mail typically has a faster delivery time than other services, however it is more expensive.  All of my shipments get picked up daily at my location by the USPS. Sometimes this pick up happens in the morning and sometimes in the afternoon. Sometimes Express Mail packages get back to the post office late. I can't control that, so for that reason I cannot guarantee one day shipping if the USPS web site quotes it as so. If my site doesn't show Express Mail as an option for your items,  I can give you an Express Mail price quote if you email me and send me your ZIP Code.
 I do not use
UPS or Fedex.

International Shipping:
I ship to almost every country in the world.  Most international shipments are sent using USPS First Class Mail International or USPS Priority Mail International (choice made by the customer). 
Smaller items or those that fit in a letter (such as stickers) are usually sent by First Class Mail International. First Class Mail International is usually a little slower
than Priority Mail International, but it's much, much less expensive.

Please Read: If you see that tracking for your order has stopped in Chicago (USA) or Miami (USA), this means it has left the USA and tracking in the USA has ended, since Chicago and Miami are departure points for international mail.
All orders are shipped using tracking service and the tracking number is always emailed to the email address toy provided when your shipping label is printed.  The tracking works for any package while in the USA, but I have found it will not always work in other countries. Some countries will show less information, such as departure from Customs and then final delivery. 

Many customers have told me that most First Class International letters and packages going to the U.K. and most other parts of western Europe arrive in about 10 to 20 days. Some as few as one week.  Some countries can take longer. Sometimes much longer. I have found that most long delays are because a package was held in Customs for long periods when entering a destination country.  
The worst countries for long delays are #1: Germany and  #2: Russia.  In Germany you might see occasional delays of up to 30 days due to slow Customs.  It's rare to be longer, but it has happened.

Faster shipping is possible using USPS Priority Mail International, but it is more expensive. This option is shown in all pages and may be chosen by the customer.  For the FASTEST service, almost any order can be shipped using USPS Priority Mail Express International. This method can be VERY expensive. No one ever chooses this method. Please email me if you need a shipping quote or have any questions.

Customs fees, duties, taves or other fees assessed by your country for an item CANNOT be paid for you by a sender from the United States. You are the recipient of the mailpiece and you are the only one who can pay customs fees.

Any mail items entering a foreign country may be subject to customs inspection and assessment of duties, taxes, and fees in accordance with that country's national laws. Customs duties and taxes are assessed generally, if the item sent is dutiable and if the value of the item is above the threshold set by the country's laws. Each country assesses their own customs, duties, and taxes. Check the Worlds Customs Organization website for general information, or visit the website of that country's customs service. 

YOU are responsible for knowing and understanding youre country's rules. So please don't ask me why your customs officials are charging you a tax or fee. 
Customer comments:  All packages and shipments originating from outside EU and worth of 22€ or more will be delayed/cleared in customs and taxes may be imposed.

Declaring a Lower Value for International Shipments:
If desired, I will honor your wish to declare a lower value of the purchase for customs declaration, but you must ask A simple request in the order comment box or by email is OK. 
Please remember that if an item is declared for less than the full value, then it cannot be insured for the full value.  I cannot be held responsible for the full value of a lost package if the shipment is not fully insured.

NOTE: Duty Fees for Canadian Customers
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) may charge an import duty on any item with a value over $20.  Their website is located HERE.
USPS First Class Mail International or USPS Priority Mail International are the best options for shipping to Canada. Even though UPS (United Parcel Service) may be faster in some instances, the brokerage fees they charge for import duties can be very high. It can really shock you!  A typical USPS brokerage fee (if one is charged, which I think is rare) might be $5, since USPS interacts well with Canada Post well. However, if you ship by UPS to Canada, their brokerage fees can be as high as $35.00, even for a very small item.

If your order is lost (or you think it might be), please first review the USPS tracking information that was sent to your email. The tracking service may be found here. Also check your shipping address for any errors. If you can't find the tracking, please email me. 

Please keep in mind that a replacement for a lost or damaged order can only be made if the order was insured. All international orders are insured automatically.  Not all USA orders are insured. Insurance for USA orders is chosen by the customer.  If you place an order in the USA and want your item insured, please choose and pay for insured shipping (yes, there is a good reason to stress this point).. 
Here's a good one: Please don't write me 4 days after your order was shipped and insist your order must be lost since you normally get mail faster (yes, I get emails like this). The mail is run by the government and that means you might need to be PATIENT.  If it is lost, USPS policies for insured packages do not allow for a loss claim to be made until more than 30 days has passed from the date of shipment.  If your order is lost and insured (and 30 days has passed), I will be happy to replace your order for you.

Non-Insured Shipments...  Please Read
If you choose a shipping method for your order that is non-insured, please remember that if your order becomes lost or damaged, I CAN NOT BE responsible to replace it.   It is very rare that mail is lost with my orders (less than 1%), but the possibility exists. Insuring a delivery is usually very little extra.  Please email if you have any questions.

Refunds and Returns:
  With the exception of wire harnesses, relays, sensors, voltage regulators or other electrical parts, I will normally honor returns on any item or part I sell, as long as it is returned unused, undamaged, uninstalled, and unalteredThe exception to all this would be if the part was defective. I'll take care of the problem if you get a defective item (see below).  Any other returns may be considered on a case by case basis.
Some stickers are custom printed to order, so they may only be returned for exchange on a case by case basis.  Email me.

You should be certain of the wire harness application before you order. Email me if you need help.  If you order the wrong part or find out later that you no longer need a wire harness you ordered, you must contact me first for approval before any return.  Returns for errors not caused by me will likely result in a Return Fee to help cover my labor costs and finance fees. The current Return Fee for any wire harness is 10% plus any finance fees if any exist (such as Paypal or credit card fees).

Try to be certain of the application before you order. Email me if you need help.  If you order the wrong part or find out later that you no longer need a part you ordered, you must contact me first for approval before any return.  A return fee may be levied on a case by case basis to cover my labor costs and finance fees. The default Return Fee for an electrical part is 20%.


This is really rare. Almost never happens. If you receive a defective part, please email me right away.  Depending on what the item is, I may ask you to return it to me so I can inspect or test it.  If a part was defective, I will gladly give you the option of a replacement or a refund.

Shopping Cart Troubleshooting Tips

1.  Only one item can be added to a cart.
Symptom: - The cart only allows one item to be listed at any given time.  When a second item is added, the new item is displayed in the cart, but the first item is no longer there.
Cause: - Your browser most likely does not have cookies enabled. When you try to add another item to the cart, no cookie is found by the cart to tell it if an item has already been selected.  The cart thinks you're starting a brand new shopping session.  If  cookies are enabled in your web browser, then as additional items or entries are added to the cart, the cookie informs the cart of the other items already selected. When cookies are not enabled, each item selected looks like your starting over with a brand new shopping session. 
A Shopping Cart cannot tell the difference between a shopper with cookies disabled and a new cart session.
Solution - See steps below for testing and enabling cookies.

2.  When I select "View Cart" it always shows an empty cart.
Symptom: - You added an item (or items) to the cart and continued shopping.  When you selected "View Cart" you discovered the cart was empty.
Cause: - Either cookies are not enabled or the "View Cart" request is occurring in a different instance of the browser.
Solution: - Use the TESTING COOKIES method below.  Enable cookies if they are not enabled.

  A cookie is a small file created by a web site (like mine) which stores bits of information on your computer, such as shopping cart contents during a purchase.  A Shopping Cart functions by asking your computer to remember a few things (these are cookies).  This way, your computer will be able to remind the Cart of the items you have selected, or even your name and address, shipping selections, comments you add, etc.
