I started selling a few months ago. I have 171/100% feedback with 5 star ratings in everything except for shipping charges. That's around 4.6.
First off, it clearly states on any auction homepage what the shipping charge is. Mine is $3.50. If you don't like the shipping charge, do not bid.
It's not like my charge is exorbitant. It costs $2.01 to mail a 4oz package through Paypal shipping. The only place that carries Caremail #0 mailers charges $12.99 for a package of 10. So I'm up to $3.30 per package on cards I charge $3.50 to ship. Anything I sell for over $20 (which is nearly every card I sell) is shipped in a one-touch. At the LCS, those are $25 for a box of $25. So now I'm losing 80 cents on everything I ship. Not to mention the cost of packing tape, gas to get to the PO, graded card sleeves, printer ink and paper, etc.
Am I wrong to be pissed? This is getting ridiculous. I don't have the space nor inventory to buy 1000 mailers at a time. I do this out of my room at night
