Kings, you have to get into the private forum that was set up, its the bawlz. I'll send you instructions by PWE if you send me $25 PP gift and that will give you access to the black list too!

You should open a business. You seem very business savvy.

Any professionalism you claim to have in your shipping practices has been counteracted by your lack of professionalism in communicating with other board members here that agree consensually to have a low dollar item hipped in a PWE.

Honestly this thread has kinda changed my openness to using pwe. I've always shipped dollar cards in bubble mailers and always charge higher shipping for it. I could probably move a lot more cards shipping pwe and take the small risk and come out much better in the long run. I guess my question for those who ship pwe, what is a fair shipping fee? I'm think $.99 after supplies and such?

All my PWE items are free shipping, but they are usually store items. $2.99 delivered with PWE. Problems are minimal to say the least and again, if there is a problem, I lose $2.99 with a $.65 investment as the cards are usually not worth much anyway.

hoopster, how do you feel about used bubble mailers?

Carry on kids.
cheapskate? Amateur? I beg to differ....let me know when you have done 5000+ deals and then you can maybe have a clue on who an amateur is. I think practical is a better word than cheapskate in sending this way. This guy makes me laugh all the time!

I ship all of my low end cards, $4.99 or less (FREE SHIPPING) in a PWE. Sleeved, top loaded, team bagged. It costs me 65 cents if it's 1 oz or less. Best way to go. Haven't had a problem. Anything $5.00 and higher gets shipped via bubble mailer w/ delivery confirmation for $2.50

Just wanted to add to this thread that the card I asked the OP to ship in a PWE made here safely and with no condition issues; another flawless transaction in a PWE.

I am trying to complete all of the Topps Chrome Refractor back to 1996. I am buying commons 1 or 2 at a time all the time. They sometimes sell for a quarter. I can't imagine having to add $2.75 to ship my quarter card in a bubble mailer.
