See: link

They are $25 USD each plus $15.00 USD for USPS medium box flat rate shipping, and I will combine shipping if you buy more than one, they will all 3 fit into 1 box

$15 USD is excessive for shipping. You can ship a single book in a padded envelope at media mail rate for less than $5. USD

Gotta agree with chuck05 on this one.

My $.02 USD cents,

First, I think that the owner of the merchandise should be allowed to charge what-ever he wants for shipping. After all, it is his 'stuff'. 'Jozis' has been upfront regarding his price for both the merchandise and shipping.

Second, I bet you that Jozis has based his postal rates on somebody buying it, who lives on the far end of the U.S.

Third, perhaps Jozis doesn't have access to free shipping boxes, padded envelopes and other useful packing matterials. To buy them and charge the buyer--will put the cost at about his $15.00 USD asking price.

Fourth, Media Mail does not include insurance. Over the years, I have sold plenty of stuff on the internet. I really get irritated, when a buyer doesn't want it insured and then tries to blame me if it gets lost or damaged.

Fifth and last, I repeat "First", it is his 'Stuff'. He has been up front with both his asking price and the postal costs. It is his stuff. If you don't like his prices, then just don't buy it!

All, I appreciate the feedback. This may be an operator head space error on my part… I only sporadically sell stuff 3-4 times a year and have been slowly reducing my collection to a manageable level.

Here is my conundrum, I looked it up recently and could have sworn that I saw that USPS would NOT allow books to ship like that. I don't know where I saw that nor why it stuck in my Brain…

So, I am going to recalculate and update everything tonight when I get home with a USPS flat rate envelope, looks like that cuts the shipping considerably.

Seriously, thanks for the responses.

Jozis et all…

You are correct. Most of these items that are shipped media mail cannot be sent that way. If they are opened by the USPS they will be charged appropriately.

One key item is that a book cannot have any advertising in it at all. Do check the rules if you are worried about it.

These are books and can be shipped via media mail. Must be 8 pages at least.

I appreciate all the feedback and will sort this tonight and repost with a clean listing.

All I want is to magically convert these rules I don't use into Kallstra 10mm trench's while keeping it "revenue neutral" for the household budget.

Thanks, guys!

As a general rule, cheap shipping sells. Even if you have to charge more for the item itself. Books are heavy, media mail saves you a lot.

Third, perhaps Jozis doesn't have access to free shipping boxes, padded envelopes and other useful packing matterials.

In a couple of minutes, given a sheet of cardboard, a steel ruler and a boxcutter, I can make a make a book mailer the USPS can happily kick to where it's going. And in twenty years of ebay, I have bought maybe two dozen padded envelopes, and exactly two boxes. Recyling bins are awesome!

…while keeping it "revenue neutral" for the household budget.


I can relate to that one!

Beast Rampant: Can you share with us how to make these do-it-your-self mailing products (or provide a link to a web site that shows how)? I have a bunch of stuff I need to sell off and coming up with shipping containers on the cheap is a pain. It would be great if I could package books and ship them at media rates…

Jozis Tin Man Supporting Member of TMP09 Jan 2018 12:04 p.m. PST

Ok, two of the books are sold, one is just going to stay on my shelf. Thanks for the feedback guys and good gaming.


Now just waitingf or Kallistra to come back from vacation so I can get my trenches…

Jozis Tin Man Supporting Member of TMP10 Jan 2018 7:42 a.m. PST

Ok, everything sold now, thanks.
