The white envelope shippers
Nothing irks me more than getting a card from eBay in a white envelope when I pay $3 or more for shipping. If I pay less than that, it's understandable because I paid for the cost it would take for a stamp and envelope. $2.50 in a white envelope even bothers me a little. It's borderline.
However, yesterday I got a white envelope with three cards in top loaders. It was mailed with a .42 cent stamp and I paid $3.75 for shipping for the lot.
I'm tired of the excuses of "eBay fees are too much. I have to recoup my money somehow." We sell on eBay too. We know about the fees. We know it sucks, but we don't rip people off. Don't try telling me that you lowered the price of the item, so you had to jack up the price of shipping only to send me cards in a white envelope.
So here is the post. Marie and I buy enough on eBay that I'm going to start the white envelope shippers list.
After talking to a seller and they refuse to give a partial refund on shipping (I don't want it all, just what is fair), their eBay name will make it to the list below.
Update: The seller emailed back and refunded some of the shipping without any arguments. He said he refunded because he cares. That was sweet of him. So, he doesn't make the list.
But let this be a warning to you sellers out there. I got this list and I am willing to use it!!!!!!!
