In case you haven't been to the post office in a while, its 1.71 to ship.
Which is why I said in my post that I always ask first. Always. Why can't I use a PWE if it's ok with the other trader and the other trader sends in PWE and its ok with me? I'm trying to figure out the problem when both traders have agreed beforehand to ship with PWE.
My main point that you missed:
If I'm trading for a 3 dollar card, I have to spend 2 dollars to ship and trade 3 dollars worth of my cards. Or I could just spend the 2 dollars to get my card on ebay and keep the cards I would be otherwise be trading away and save a trip to the post office which also costs money to drive there. Call me cheap but I don't throw my money away by making trades for cards when I could just buy them for the same money. Which is why I use PWE for cheap trades, otherwise its just not worth it.

Yeah good thought but a) you could damage the card cutting the tape b) you could dameage the card pulling it out, by getting caught on the tape and c) the card sticks to the tape because like stated above no penny sleeve.
