About Nifty Music
Discography
Nifty Music is excited to offer its extensive discographical database online, primarily featuring classic Christian music from the late 1960s through the 1990s, but extended out into additional genres and decades. You can search or just browse releases by artist or record label. The database features all kinds of interesting information, including release dates, reissue data, pressing variations, pressing plant information, songs, detailed credits, scans of covers and labels, and more! Although the database will likely never be truly "complete", every effort is being made to ensure that the data which is present is as accurate as possible. The database will continue to grow as time allows and as new items are added to the store.

Store
Nifty Music specializes in making out-of-print and hard-to-find Christian music available. Although we have a large number of items in our inventory, our stock of individual items is very limited, with much of our stock being one of a kind items. You may find items of interest by browsing or searching the Store, or by exploring the Discography.

When browsing the Store, the Artist, Title, Record Label, Product Number, Copyright Date, Condition, Price (In US Dollars) And Other Notes will be displayed for each available item. You may filter by Format and Genre, browse by Artist, or search within the Store for a particular Artist or Release. To view more details about the item (including songs, credits, pressing details, etc.), you may click on the item's Title. You may also click on the thumbnail image of the item to view detailed images of the actual item for sale. To add an item to your shopping cart for purchase, simply click the "Add To Cart" button. If you are already logged into the system, this will place that item in a shopping cart. If you are not, this will automatically bring you to the login page, where you can either register or log in if you already have an account set up. You may then repeat the process to add additional items to your shopping cart.

Any item listed on the website is currently available for sale, and our inventory is automatically adjusted when an order is placed so that any product which is no longer available will be removed from the site. New items are added often. If you are interested in finding out when the site is updated, feel free to utilize the new Want List feature. Your email address will never be sold or given away and will only be used for correspondence regarding an order or website update information.

Want List
You can now add items to your want list! This can be used to track items that you might be interested in for a future order, or to add specific versions of a release from the discography which aren't currently in stock in our store. In the event that a new item on your want list is added to our inventory, you will be receive an email notifying you that it is available for purchase so that you can be the first in line!
You can also view your want list by selecting the "My Want List" link from the "My Account" dropdown.

Grading
We do our very best to grade our items accurately and completely. Vinyl is graded visually, but often we do sample play vinyl any note any particular defects in addition to assinging a visual grade. The visual grading system is as follows:
COVER GRADING: Described By Item
VINYL GRADING:
SS = Still Sealed (Never Opened)
M = Mint Condition (Only Used For Items Which Are Assumed To Be Unplayed)
M- = Near Mint Condition (Our Highest Grading - Nearly Perfect Visually)
VG++= Very Good Plus Plus/Excellent (Just Shy Of Near Mint - May Have Slight Sleeve Scuffing A Tiny Mark Or Two That Should't Affect Play) VG+ = Very Good Plus Condition (May Have A Few Tiny Surface Scratches)
VG = Very Good Condition (More Light Surface Scratches)
VG- = Very Good Minus Condition (More Light Scratches)
G+ = Good Plus Condition (Lots Of Light Scratches)
G = Good (Very Scratched But Still Playable)
G- = Good Minus Condition (Still Playable, But With Lots Of Scratches & Scuffs & Noise)
F = Fair (This Is Essentially Trashed - Will Certainly Play With Lots Of Noise & May Skip)
P = Poor (This Is Purely A Filler - May Be Badly Warped Or Damaged To The Point Where It May Be Partially Or Fully Unplayable)

CDs are graded similarly to vinyl from a visual basis, but often even a very scratched CD will have no issue on playback. We generally test play any severely scratched CDs to ensure they play.
Cassette tapes are graded visually (inlay and cassette shell), but are played from start to finish before listing and any specific sound defects are noted separately.
8-Tracks are graded visually and sold "as is" and untested.

Order Tracking & History
To view your past order history, select the "My Order History" link from the "My Account" dropdown. This will allow you to view past orders, and track open orders to see when payment was received or when your item was shipped. Orders will be displayed in descending order by Order Date, and will show complete order details, as well as the status of your order.

Shipping
Postage is calculated automatically by our shopping cart system based on the weight of your order and its destination. Nifty Music does not profit on shipping, so our shipping rates are calculated based on the actual postal rates plus the cost of our packaging.

Domestic customers may generally choose to have their items shipped via Priority Express Mail, Priority Mail, First Class Mail (for orders weighing under 1 lb.), or by slower Media Mail to save shipping costs.
International customers may elect to have their items sent via First Class Air Mail or Priority Air Mail. Unfortunately, The United States Post Office no longer offers Surface Mail shipping.

While we package our items carefully to minimize the likelihood of any damage, Postal Insurance is strongly recommended, especially for more expensive items.

Sales Tax
Sales Tax of 8.85% will be added to all orders shipped to a Missouri address.
