To avoid confusion! The automatic PayPal check out is currently deactivated! You do not automatically pay the order at check out.  I will get back to you with a payment info as soon as i can. This might take 1-2 days. More if there is a weekend or bank holiday involved. Please also check your SPAM Filters for a reply. I ALWAYS contact you or write back but it seems that some emails do end up in spam filters or have other weird troubles. Especially with french servers! Feel free to email me anytime! Thank you!


The Shipping Costs Module is not working anymore! All shipping costs displayed here are only an estimated price. Actual shipping costs can be slightly higher OR lower depending on the daily rates! I will review your order and let you know the final costs for Freight and Shipping while trying to find a cheap but reliable deal!


Now, happy browsing... Cheers, Stevie.

INSURANCE & CUSTOMS for NonEU (World) orders

If you don't want us to send an official invoice and custom declaration, we must charge 19% VAT on top of the given price. -Low value custom declarations are no longer a safe option. Especially if the price of vinyl is under 7.00 or 8.00 EUR per copy it will no longer work because we had many shipments returned because the customs believed the custom declaration was faulty... - believe it or not, they know about the vinyl comeback as well these days.

We have a custom EORI number that automatically is attached to our shipments leaving the EU and we need to report the export. - As a EU citizen you would have to pay the VAT Tax of your country. NonEU countries do not pay the VAT but might be charged with a import fee.


Payment should be made in (Euro) funds drawn on German bank. Any charges for foreign checks will be billed back to you. Shipments are sent by international registered PREMIUM, airmail, unless specified otherwise.


Titles published by RUIN NATION RECORDS & SKULD RELEASES are available from the following distributors/wholesalers: Punkdistro (DE), Sonic Rendezvous (Benelux/Europe), Ebullition (USA). We encourage you to go to whatever source is most convenient. Wholesale terms are available on all RUIN NATION TITLES titles.
