I charge $2.25 in the USA for 1-5 cards. I have it listed as 4, but I always throw in a 5th.
69 cents is his post office giving him the preferred Non-Machinable Rate. If he was at a PO where they refuse to do this, then his cost would have been $2.07.
He is being hit with .30 cents shipping commission, plus the cost of the Toploader and bubble, as some people have to physically buy each one.
I would NOT give him a negative, perhaps he has more cards that you need and can combine in the future. Don't shoot the horse you rode in on, as it might be the one to get you out as well.
Too many negatives are given to sellers. Now if he charged you $5.00-$6.00 or more for shipping for 1 card like the Trolls in Quebec do, then yes, Neg-Away.Collecting many HOF Cards, Old OPC, Old Parkhurst, Old Topps.

Welcome to Clown College Friday!
Got this from a twit with all of 6 feedback.
"Just wondering... The sticker with your company logo was placed on the picture itself (not on the plastic sheet) and it's leaving a residue on the actual picture.
I don't remember this being described in your eBay ad for the item. Would you be able to ship out another copy of the picture? If not can we work something out?"
Where else would I put the COA holo foil? On the protective sleeve? I'm not guaranteeing the authenticity of a plastic sleeve, I'm guaranteeing the authenticity of your photograph.
He's also trying to claim that there's a scratch on the photo underneath the tamper-proof foil. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAMPER WITH THE HOLO FOIL!!!!
Clown has now left me a negative stating the following:
"Place of holofoil wasn't stated in descripion. Scratch was under holofoil"

Brutal. If that negative will haunt you for the next 12 months this is what I would do. Load on the sugar, eat my pride, accept all responsibility and send a very nice well worded request that the buyer revise the negative they left you.
If you feel your sales won't be effected then slam them with a response describing to the Ebay community just how ignorant that buyer was.
Removing a COA sticker, how stupid.One day at a time, lol.

Never mind, noticed you already provided a rebuttal, nicely worded I must add. I don't think that negative is going to hurt you. I would like to give most buyers the benefit of the doubt when they read that feedback and response that they will most likely have the same reaction we all have had to this situation, usually words in our heads saying "what an idiot".One day at a time, lol.

I was dumbfounded when he contacted me. I've seen a lot of clown behaviour over the years and Wess & I had a chuckle about this guy's response. But it's going to bug me because it is so thoroughly undeserved. I delivered him a Borje Salming auto, just as described. He defiled it by trying to remove the COA, and somehow I'm the bad guy here. I've petitioned eBay to have that removed because it is so unjustifiable. We'll see if they take the proper action to protect a 13-year member's perfect feedback rating in the face of such petulance.
