Please sticky this. It just took me 20 minutes to find it.


I agree this thread should be stickied b/c it's helpful for the traders on CAG. However, it seems like there is a low possibility of that happening since this thread has been around for awhile. Once you reply to this thread, it should be automatically entered as a subscription in your user cp, and it will never be deleted unless you delete it yourself. Or, you can click on the "subscribe to this thread" button instead of replying, and it will be added to your subscription list. Another suggestion would be to bookmark the link in the op instead of constantly searching for this thread (which is what I did hehe).

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

I've been doing this for months for my packages going to traders @ GameTZ/TGN/Goozex etc. I thought everybody was?

Bump! and another "sticky" request please

just used it for the first time a moment ago. works great!

and I Never send a package via USPS without DC (Had 2 lost last year without it, both were Medial Mail)

The discount on DC more than covers the ink, paper, and tape to provide my own label, not to mention the gas!

Can't believe I'm such a late bloomer to using this!

Media mail sucks though seeing it takes forever.... My thing is on top of regular shipping costs they jacked in-house DC to $.75 which in my case DC is pretty useless except for the fact you know it was shipped because it was accepted by the intial post office.. other than that I never get any more updates until the item gets delivered and sometimes thats a few days after the delivery has been confirmed by the other person lol..

Is it the intial being accepted by the senders post office that people look for with DC ?

Thanks

You really don't need to use the link in this thread. Just log into your PP account and go to the merchant services tab. There is a shipping link there where you can ship the same way as stated here (though it is a multiorder link).

Media mail has been gettting really bad, I had a package take over 3 weeks recently.

I pay about $15/mo for Endicia postage services, basically so I can hide the postage cost if its within the US.

I'm thinking about canceling though, and just using PayPal for postage.

PayPal lets you hide the postage cost as well.

There you go. It's my first time editing under wiki code, so if there's anything wrong, let me know. I also included the cheapest way to ship one game, as well as information on shipping two games via priority.

1. Weigh your package
2. Put said weight into paypal shipping
3. pick parcel post
4. pay and print...

I would use paypal to ship, but I don't have a scale. Anyone have anything suggestions on weighing things for free or a cheap scale?
