Do you read my iTrader or something?
I think you stated it was ok when you stated before you would be shipping in a PWE... doesn't appear you informed this buyer what was taking place.

Doesn't really matter. It's $3. If any one of the cards had arrived damaged, I would have gladly given him his entire $3 back.

Question... When listing cards is it better to list in lots or individual cards?

Cut two cardboard pieces that are slightly larger than the cards. Insert one on either side of your cards. Fill the rest of the box with packing peanuts or paper towels.

"low end"

Do you mean low value cards?

Simple just get an Ultra Team Bag, a white paper, a comic card board, "magic" tape, 3 cushion peanuts, and a padded envelope.

1) Cards inside the Team Bag.
2) Use magic tape to secure the Team Bag.
3) Cut 2 pieces card board that can fix inside the padded envelope.
4) With the magic tape fix the Team Bag to 1 piece of the card boards. Then tape the 2 together. It will be look like a sandwich.
5) Then cover the "sandwich" with the white paper.
6) If you use Internet postage labels. First fix the postage to the envelope.
7) Put the "sandwich" in the padded envelope. If you are shipping as package. The with must me more than 3/4 in. So addig the 3 cushion peanuts will work.

I didn't see this yet, but has anyone shipped full 3000-5000 count boxes? Looks like the cards weigh about 25lbs each box and it costs around $40/ea across the board (USPS, UPS, FedEx). I have to haul about 10,000 cards cross country and I don't know if I should try to check them as baggage when I fly or ship them.

You check if you can just fit them into a couple flat rate USPS boxes? Might be cheapest route to go.

Cheapest way is to make them yourself from older boxes (insert here for legal purposes I'm not saying using the free flat rate boxes from the USPS is your best option for this, but seen it done and since your still shipping via USPS it could be considered legal).

I know from time to guy guys will post a thread up on the forums and buy them from members. I save mine and once I fill a flat rate box I sell them for the costs of shipping and my supplies

I save any cardboard boxes we get , usually diaper boxes but also keep the boxes my cases are shipped in. Another cheap way to save $$ is when you receive a bubble mailer after buying a card save it , then cut it in to pieces just bigger than a toploader. If I don't have any dummies or cardboard cut up Ill use some base cards in the small team bag with the card that I sold then place them into a large team bag with the cut up bubble mailer.

Shipping question. Did a paypal shipping today dropped it off at post office when since I had to go there for other things. Checked the tracking number and it shows delevered already at the time I dropped it off. So clearly they scanned it wrong. Has this every happened to anyone else? Will the tacking update if scanned again? Wondering because sending cards to a guy and don't want him to say he never got them with the tracking being messed up.

Did shipping just go up for PayPal? 2-5 first class looks to be 2.05 now not 1.93. I wasn't sure if I read that somewhere. Clarify?

edit:wrong thread.

Please Note: I do all my transactions through COMC. This DOES NOT mean you need a COMC account to buy my card. You can still buy it directly through COMC using PAYPAL but we will need to agree on a price here because you can only buy it for the price I have it listed at on COMC. Just PM me and we can negotiate a price. Thanks!
