Frequently Asked Questions

Do you buy license plates as well as sell them?

Absolutely. We are not only license plate sellers, we are also serious collectors who have been involved in the license plate hobby for over 30 years. We actively buy small / medium / large accumulations and collections of license plates and related items.

Are your plates guaranteed?

Absolutely! Everything we sell is fully guaranteed. If for any reason you’re not happy with your purchase (including damage in transit), simply return the license plate to us within 30 days and we’ll give you a full refund including postage. We aren’t happy unless you are. We make every effort possible to accurately describe the license plates on our website.

What form of payment do you accept?

You can pay with any major credit card or Paypal balance by using the shopping cart. We also offer a shipping discount if you want to pay with a personal check or money order. Please follow these instructions. Please make sure all payments include a description of your purchase so as not to delay your shipment.

How can I enquire about or reserve particular plates?

The most effective way is to e-mail us the 5 digit inventory control number that briefly appears when you hover the cursor over the listing image. This way, we can quickly and directly retrieve the plate listings. Sending us the number on the license plate e.g. ABC-123 is more challenging since these numbers are not entered in the database.

Do you sell license plates on eBay?

We have been selling license plates under the oakalla userid on eBay since 1998. We have amassed over 12,000 positive feedbacks with a 100% satisfaction rating.

Do you combine shipping with eBay auction wins?

We are happy to combine shipping of purchases from the easyPL8S.com website with eBay wins. Many customers combine website purchases with eBay wins to save on shipping costs. We will refund any excess shipping costs calculated by the shopping cart when purchases are combined with eBay wins.

What shipping services do you use?

We use the USPS within the United States and for overseas shipping. For Canadian customers, we use Canada Post.

How often do you ship?

We ship once per week by USPS, usually on Tuesday or Wednesday. For Canadian customers, we ship as soon as we receive your payment.

How much does shipping cost?

Here are our shipping rates within the USA:

Total order amount Postage
Under $10.00 $ 5.00
$10.00 - $39.99 $ 7.00
$40.00 - $79.99 $ 8.00
$80.00 - $119.99 $ 10.00
$120 + $12.00

I live in Canada. How does this affect the cost of shipping?

Generally, the online shopping cart accurately calculates shipping for destinations within Canada. The exception is if you purchase 3 or more inexpensive plates. In this case, Canada Post shipping costs greatly outweigh those calculated by the shopping cart. We will e-mail you to allow you to choose your shipping options.

I live overseas. How does this affect the cost of shipping?

The online shopping cart calculates shipping for destinations within the USA only; we will calculate international shipping charges. With the priority legal size flat rate envelope, up to 4 lbs. (1.8 kilos) of plates will generally ship for a USPS shipping cost of approximately $32.95 + $1.00 handling = $33.95. This rate now varies by country. Please email us for an exact quote.

Will I receive the actual license plate in the picture or do you substitute plates?

The plate you see on the website is the plate you will receive. We never substitute plates unless the customer requests a different plate.

What if I want more than one copy of the same plate?

Each plate is unique. Although the shopping cart will allow the entry of quantities greater then 1, multiple copies of the same plate are not available (except for certain booster plates).

Do you offer discounts?

Yes we do! Purchasers of over $100 (not including shipping) on easyPL8S.com will receive a coupon good for a 10% discount on their next purchase.

Entering a valid coupon number (e.g. ABC-123) in the appropriate place on the home page will automatically adjust the prices of all the license plates on the website. The coupon number must be entered for the discount to be applied. These discounts will be reflected in your online shopping cart.

Do you have more plates than are listed on your site?

We have tens of thousands of plates available, and if you have a special request, please email us at dave@easyPL8S.com with your requirements.

I’ve been burned before with plates that look better in the pictures than in reality.

We strive to post images that accurately reflect the quality of our plates. Since the image sizes are relatively small, the plates often look better in person than in the pictures. For example, newer plates generally have very nice color and gloss which is often not accurately reflected in the image. Any defects that are not apparent in the images are clearly noted.

I often see plates with incorrect stickers attached. Do your plates have the proper stickers?

Yes. Unless the plate is unissued or was originally used without stickers, all license plates are affixed with the correct, original stickers.

Do you sell reproductions of real license plates?

No. EasyPL8S.com offers a large selection of genuine license plates. All of our plates are the real McCoy. In some cases, we have listed booster or souvenir type license plates if we think they might be of interest to collectors of genuine license plates. These plates are clearly labeled as such in all cases.

Are any of your license plates repainted or touched-up?

No, except as noted in exceptional instances. We strive to maintain high standards in all facets of our business, including the quality of our license plates. In rare instances, where scarcer plates are involved, a particular plate may be repainted or touched-up. However, this will be always clearly stated in the description.

Can I register your plates for use on my car?

Not unless the plates are approved for use under your state’s Year of Manufacture program. Otherwise, our plates are for use as souvenirs, decorating, or collecting.
