One guy bought multiple items and I gave him combined shipping and he hit me with 1's for all 6 items, then came back and bought 5 more items and left 1's on all 5. Why did he buy again if the shipping was too high? Also, the Positive FB he left didn't count as 11 separate FB, but the 1's did count as 11 different so my account was in danger. I have since blocked him.
I then had to switch everything to free shipping. Doesn't seem fair that one buyer can screw my account so bad - I'm still pissed about it.
Unfortunately ebay has it set up that way so that anyone can leave bad star ratings and ruin your good standing. I still have 100% positive, but have been fighting to bring up my shipping stars (5 of 5 on the other categories).
Now I start all of my listings at an amount that covers shipping - it does hurt sales on the lower value cards, but haven't had a problem otherwise.
I think eBay needs to be willing to review the 1 and 2 star ratings and allow us to show the shipping costs and remove those if they are unwarranted. But they don't really care about the sellers right now.

I've always been one to use DC# and bubble mailer whether the sale/trade is $2 or $200.
I've never used PWEs to mail in, but feel would need to if I sell a card for $2 and do free shipping. Any thoughts on PWEs?
