so 3 dollars isnt unreasonable to expect for a card for shipping

I trade alot here and on other sites and use it for that too. just click on multi-order shipping. you are correct $3 is not unreasonable just not necessary. in most cases it is a cheap way to make a buck. why ship for $2.51 when you can print your own label with DC for $1.75?
