    I sell some on eBay and for most items I charge the standard shipping of $3.50. I conduct my business at my local post office and for some items such as large coins, slabs, etc. that's the minimum price as they have to be sent first class. For smaller coins I can often get away with just charging 75¢ to cover sending it non-machinable. But I am more than happy to combine shipping for multiple items and I often buy from sellers that do the same thing. I agree though that some sellers try and cover some losses because they would refuse to combine shipping on two items.

    I see you send stuff for 75c that has no tracking....As ebay sides with the buyer, how do you know that the buyer is not going to say they did not receive the item when they did, leave you negative feedback and demand a full refund?? Remember there is no tracking number on those 75c shipped packages and the buyer can do and say what ever they like and ebay will believe them...I personally insist on tracking on all items , no matter where they are going to...You seem to have a lot of trust in ebay buyers but the majority of sellers in there dont.. I dont mind combining shipping but i do not charge full price...I charge 50c per added item due to the possibility of the weight of the coin going over the allowed limit. Some of the time the actual postage is more than my price quoted and i accept the loss. All my items i make as packages and send as such. This way tracking can be added and ebay has it on file...They are also sent non machinable . The nasty and dishonest buyers in ebay have made it bad for everyone....Another thing is you are doing yourself out of money as the price is now $3.75 and no longer $3.50...BTW, do you pay at the counter and have a sticky label on the package or do you place stamps all over it???..I use stamps as they are in my collection and the kids these days have no interest in them so i am just using them all up on all my packages. Lots of Luck...OIO

    Tap the OP's avatar, then tap the "start a conversation" option. That is PM (private message) the seller.
