free for the buyer, free to register and free to use.

order proceeds once payment is approved
Once an attempt has been made to debit payment from your credit card,
PayPal sends out two emails to inform the success or failure of the transaction.
One goes to you (the buyer), one goes to paraphernalia (the seller).
Once your transaction is approved, we will immediately process your order.
When your order is dispatched,
paraphernalia will send you an email confirming the shipment date and
the tracking number. Please print out and safeguard both the transaction confirmation email
from PayPal as well as the shipment confirmation email from paraphernalia
as these are effectively your purchase invoices.
