Priority for kits and large packages, First Class for decals and really small stuff here.

I started out giving choices and found most buyers don't give a hoot. They just want their purchase yesterday. I picked Priority but in some cases use First Class and/or Parcel Post. $10 might be for Express plus the packing materials, time, gas, etc. JMHO

Ditto for me, plus Media Mail/Bound Printed Matter for big books or big packages of smaller ones (well wrapped of course, that stuff really gets banged around).
Unfortunately a lot of these big sellers seem to think that their $10 S/H charge justifies slapping a mailing label on top of an unwrapped kit box... :-(

$8.10, it's how coin collectors send 50lb bags around and the box is a large cube.

... time, gas etc - how about if a 'buyer' charges the 'seller' for the time it took to read his massive laundry list in the listing? John

I usually don't sell books and when I do they usually go with a kit.
Priority boxes are free and if you need a bunch you can order them online then they magically appear on your doorstep. Some of the large or oddly shaped kits I have to buy boxes for and padded/stiff envelopes for decals but if the buyer buys enough stuff in one go I eat the cost of packaging.
Typically if the kit is under 2 pounds I weigh it, weight the box and add 4 ounces for dunnage if there's alot of airspace. Pop onto

and you get a shipping charge as long as you a zipcode or country. Sometimes it's a little off but it's close enough.

$12.75 is the lowest Express flat rate but I'd only put paper in that envelope.....I jusr overnighted some documents to someone. Of course if somebody wants Fedex next day air and wants to pay for I'll do it but.........

Then I'd have to charge for boxes since I don't keep more than one or two empties around and that would make first class for packages just as expensive as Priority. Decals alone via Priority is insane, most sheets i sell are under $10/sheet, usually $4-7.

Sorry, that's what I meant. I used the wrong term. Now I must make myself go stand in the corner. ;]

Considering how much attention my instructions get I can't imagine anyone reads them. ;]
