And for the buyer (or maybe it's just me as a buyer) $1 can be a big difference relative to the value of the low-end deal.

Also, how many stamps does a single card in PWE take? 1 or 2?

Thanks

penny sleeve, top loader, team bag...seal that in a pwe....tape the seams of the envelope...write non machinable on the front
.....cost= 65 cents and. It bypasses the sorting machine...do it all the time with no issues

How can you say it is amateur when you have never done it? I have done over 500 transactions in a PWE (400 nonmachiaable) and not once where there was damage. I have done about 500 transactions in a bubble mailer and have had three issues with damage.

Second, especially with trades, the saving on shipping is worth it. I made a trade with the member I quoted below for cards that I wouldn't even be willing to trade in a bubble mailer. You say oh well the DC is on a bubble? I am saving $1 per PWE deal compared to a bubble mailer. Regardless if selling or buying. Mainly, I get rid of cards that I couldn't with $2 shipping or $1.64 whatever.

Thirdly, I have sold many cards in a PWE that I couldn't sell in a bubble mailer because the price was a lot smaller. That $1 saving for a buyer adds up.

Here is one of the members that just received a nice PWE deal from me. No issues.

I can't believe that everyone that thinks this method of shipping is okay. What a bunch of cheapskates, amateur's, and don't want to protect themselves for just a lousy dollar or less.

Carry on kids.

There are examples in this thread of people who have done hundreds of PWE deals each with little or no bad experiences, so your statement doesn't exactly hold water....

Well at least we will continue to do deals. Instead of responding to me like an adult, you act like an amateur and name call. You must be new to this hobby, actually I know you are. I can tell. Anyone who buys for a PC wants to buy as cheap as possible. I have a PC of a player where I won't buy an auto worth $3 total with shipping. I see his cards not sell for $.99 plus $2.99 shipping. Yet that same card will be FS for $.99 plus $1 shipping I buy it. Buyers have this mentality. If THEY (buyers) can save a $1 over 100 deals. That is $100! Same with selling. I have so many cards in front of me that aren't worth the price of shipping in a bubble mailer. So if I get $1 shipped for it and profit $.50 from it, awesome. If I make 10 sales a week doing this, that is $5 more a week. $20 a month, $260 a year. All by saving on shipping so buyers will be willing to purchase.

Uh oh...he broke out the "kids"...he must be mad serious! Dude, it's a baseball card message board. That means we are dealing with cardboard. It's not life or death.

Also, resulting to name calling is the last defense of someone with no valid argument.

Exactly what statement have I made calling anyone names? Just calling a spade a spade.

Do you have any argument other than "you guys are wrong, I'm right,"? There is more than a large enough sample size to show that PWE is perfectly acceptable with a low-end deal, especially when jersey/patch cards aren't involved.

You called people who ship in a PWE a cheapskate? I have posted legit reasons from both buyers and sellers and you can't respond to it because you know you have been proven that it isn't, so now you are trolling. Then you say, "carry on kids.' I mean come on, you are the kid in this thread, acting all upset because no one is on your side so you pout and start trolling.

I've sold dollar cards, and even lost money due to shipping in a bubble envelope, toploader, sealed in a team bag with delivery confirmation. I never have ever sent anything PWE, and never will.

100 deals with a PWE using jersey cards and a couple patches. No issues there either. Nonmachinable PWE is really not a bad thing. it is a cheaper method for everyone around to get rid of low-end stuff. We aren't talking about shipping high-end stuff in a PWE, that is crazy. But low-end deals, it saves everyone.

So, other than losing money because of your own stubbornness, do you have an argument as to why sending in a PWE is "wrong"? Especially since you've never done it.

So you cannot comment on it then. I mean you have never done it, you just assume it is bad, with no proof. Why did you even post in this thread when you have nothing to prove?

Ok, great. Good for you.

Notice I didn't call you a horrible business person for losing money on a low end deal.

There you go again, grow up. I know the UP is boring but grow up.

You are that worried that people will try and scam you over a few bucks? I mean most of my PWE sales are under $1.64 which is the way you ship. People wouldn't even pay $1.64 to buy things that I got rid of for $1 shipped.

I think you are missing the point. In this thread alone there have been close to a thousand instances of PWE shipping going off without a hitch. If you don't agree, then fine. The name calling and puffing out of your chest over your internet respect is pretty funny though.

I have received PWE's, all bad transactions.

I'm not getting all puffy here. You tell me to grow up, but I'm almost trice your age. And by the way, I have plenty to do here in the UP. And I'm retired!

PWE's are an unprofessional way to ship, do it right and spend the extra buck.

That is all I wanted to hear, your reasons. Took you long enough, although I don't believe all were. Unless all means 1 or 2.

Because you name to name call and puff your chest out. Hence why you need to grow up.

And who said PWE is unprofessional? You? Was unaware you also made the shipping rules in cards.
