$0.45 for mailer where I live.
So if I want it the $0.80 isnt going to keep me from getting it...

So I am already up to $2.55, plus the card supplies then, so I think $3 is fair.
Also, to those that say shipping is to cover ebay fees, that is 100% against the rules and if they tell me that is what part of the fee is, I ding them on shipping costs, obviously still positive though if everything else is fine.

My costs are $1.71 (first-class parcel postage), $.80 (DC#), Bubble Mailer, top loader, and other means of added protection make up the remaining $.50. What ticks me off are the sellers who charge $3.00 and then ship in a PWE. I understand it's a redemption, but depending on who it is of, it could still sell for a high price and I'd have to provide proof of shipment. You technically can't get a DC# on a first-class envelope, so I'd still have to charge the $3.00 to ship as a parcel.

1- Buy the 100 count box of mailers off ebay, they come up in an auction with free shipping sometimes.
2- Use paypal shipping, even if you don't sell on ebay you can still use the "multi-order shipping" under "my account tools" on the right side of the page.
3- Even if you don't have a scale this is fine because 1-3 oz is the same price, just make your package 3 oz. If you are shipping alot of cards obvioulsy you will need a scale. But 1-4 cards or so is fine. It costs $1.75 with DC and you can print the label and put the card in your mailbox. Message the person there dc code and you are done.
I will be happy to walk any of you guys through this process. Just send me a message.
