New International Shipping Rates

Yesterday I had the misfortune of going to the post office and shipping a graded card in a caremail padded envelope to Canada for the first since the rate increase. I was expecting it to go up as Iw as told last Saturday that it would be and saw the rate sheet. Well my normal $3.95 shipment went up to $7.45 which was a shock and took a loss as a lot of people will until their current auctions end. These changes will undoubtly change the landscape for collectors of commons and lower priced singles and pricing of cards in genernal. One other area that sellers will feel this in eBay fees as sellers do get charged their shipping charges. For instance if I sell 100 cards to Canada and now have to pay 7.00 a card that is $0.63 per card in fees or $63.00 in total. That is a a good chunk of change and interested to see how this all shakes out and how it affects the hobby.
