1. Ive been selling a lot of surplus DB Systems
inventory on eBay (currently 40 auctions).
Ebay wants to sell you a shipping label, but for small items
I can do better with First Class Mail (which they dont
consider since there is no tracking or insurance). If it doesnt
arrive I just ship again.
Here is an example where their label is dramatically cheaper.
I sold a box of open reel tape, one pass, weighing 20 lbs,
20 by 12 by 10 and eBay charged the customer
$30.70 shipping, based on my supplied weight and size, which
is about right for USPS ground. Going to the shipping label
page eBay offered to ship flat rate envelope for $8.50, which
If you click more options and scroll down, by USPS ground its
$23.31. Significant savings.
By UPS $14.88. By Fedex $11.88! Theres a Fedex dropoff
in the next town so I used that.
