Hey guys -
Not really an experienced eBayer by any means, so I thought I would bring this issue here. I won a card last weekend (about 8 days ago now) and right after, I decided to pick up another one from the seller. I sent them a request for the combined shipping quote they had in their auction description, and now with a total of 5 messages sent, I haven't received any response or invoice for the purchase of the two cards. What do I do from here?

Being an eBay newbie here. I hate it... HATE IT!!!! 4 of my last 5 transactions have all been sent in a PWE. And they have the audasity to charge $3 for Shipping. needless to say I only left 1 star where it says" Description and accuracy of Shipping" or something along those lines lolI collect Tiger Williams and other tough guys and fighters AND I PAY WITH CASH

I charge $2.75 to ship via PWE to Canada from the USA. Postage costs me $1.30 (letter rate for less than 2 oz's and non-machineable surgace) and supplies (envelope, paper for mounting/securing card safely, team bag, penny sleeve, top loader) cost me about $.30 each. Okay then, why do I charge the additional $1.30? Because to ship by PWE to Canada (with the non machinable surcharge) I have to travel to the Post Office and wait in line. I live in a busy city and the post office lines on average run about 25 minutes a trip. So yes, there is a handling charge that needs to be accounted for when shipping via PWE because as we all know, time is money.
If I ship via bubble mailer package, I can print the postage directly from my computer. You cannot print Letter rate stamps with non machineable surcharge.
So, please remember that 99% of sellers are not trying to make money off shipping on ebay. In fact, eBay charges fees for the price of shipping anyways so there is not much benefit to have an inflated shipping charge. Many sellers take pride in their DSR's and most issues that customers have can be easily resolved if you communicate.

I have no problems with someone using a PWE to ship.
However, if I am being charged $3 for shipping from Canada to Canada, I expect a bubble mailer. I personally know that the postage will cost $1.51 including taxes and the bubble mailer costs $0.37 ($1.12 for a pack of three at Dollarama in Ontario). So when I am charged $3, there is no mention of PWE in the listing and the card arrives in a toploader in a PWE with just a regular stamp on it, I am disappointed. The actual cost to ship was less than $1 and way lower than $3. I would have expected a lower shipping rate in the listing if I knew the card was coming this way. I would have been okay with $2 shipping that way.
From the US, I wish more sellers would offer the reinforced PWE option. I have received many cards safely shipped using this method and it is much cheaper than a bubble mailer.Looking for 2013-14 UD Team Canada Cards and
