No problem I understand how it goes.. At times I think that I'm in the wrong business and should start a shipping service at those rates LOL... Thanks for the kind words about my items, The moose is always flying out of the door daily Smiley

Yes the entire thing is pretty crazy. Gas prices go up then our shipping goes up, someone says Boo and the prices go up. As I mentioned above. Try setting up accounts with all shippers (fedex, dhl,ups, etc) I have found these poeple really do compete with for rates. As you can see from the stuff we make, I'm shipping out tables, ET Centers, etc. I find the shipper and get the quote then I call my sales reps from the other places and let them bid for my shipping (of course we ship over 50 packages a day so that may help as well) but hey atleast it makes those poeple via for the business  Grin

I fully agree with your USPS situation and think it is pretty crazy, I for one do not understand why poeple would come up with diff. rates (just goes to show you that they USPS do not know what they are doing) I swear you can call them and have one thing said then go in and have another thing said. If you ask me I do not like the new change by size when all pretty much do by weight. I'm fully aware they are trying to compete with the others! However like I told them if you are going to compete then you better come and pick up!! wich in turn is another mix up as they tell me over the phone they will not pick up anything over 25 pounds, however my local post master tells me they will... Now I know why people that work for the post office snap LOL...
Well hope it all works out for you... In the end atleast you have gained some knowledge about this and can now choose other places to ship..

Sorry I did not have the time to read all 5 pages (bit busy these days) was just trying to help you out some...

Any how! Wonders why you have this price?? I just used our USPS account and came out with $12.75 maybe they offer dif. rates for some who knows...

Also did it via ups and came up with

UPS Next Day Air Saver
Billable Weight: 1.0 lbs.
 1 By End of Day
July 23, 2007  38.59 USD*
UPS 2nd Day Air
Billable Weight: 1.0 lbs.
 2 By End of Day
July 24, 2007  19.86 USD*
UPS 3 Day Select
Billable Weight: 1.0 lbs.
 3 By End of Day
July 25, 2007  16.00 USD*
UPS Ground
Billable Weight: 1.0 lbs.
 4 By End of Day
July 26, 2007  9.10 USD*
Then again we are speaking of the USPS whom change things around all the time. I do see the size charts on the tables they use and it is pretty funny.
After looking at the rates by UPS I would start using them, in fact if you use all of them you can call your rep and work the prices better.

  Well I did not read all the postings on this topic so maybe you solved the problem (or looks like you are working on it). Maybe some of this will help (from what I did read).

1. PayPal does offer several 800 numbers to call and speak with them, try some of these
866-837-1851 or 800-852-1973

2. Being an ex Ebay Power Seller, I can tell you that 1. If you sent the item that is registered via PayPal you are safe and any negative feedback left will be removed.

3. Chances are you are dealing with a person that made the mistake on their own and are trying to blame you (very famous for Ebay users).

4. You are not responsible to ship the item a 2nd time out of your own pocket as you made good on the first time. Tell them to send you the money for shipping for a 2nd time. They messed up and did not update a paypal account so the problem of getting the product sent a 2nd time is on them

5. You are paying way to much shipping (you must be overseas or something) as nothing should cost that much to ship a small item as you have described. (example, I just sent a rustic business card holder at 1 pound "rounded up in weight" from California to Poland and was only charged $15.82 using USPS.. So you need to look into this a bit.

6. I hate FEEBAY lol

Best of luck with dealing with your problem, hope some of this info helps you out some.. Have a great day

That is a tuff question! How much does it cost you to make?
as for shipping I do not think it would be that hard to ship (after all I ship out coffee tables) just make sure you are not getting into oversize.

Try heading over to craftersbuzz.com they have a pretty neat section to sale your crafts. It is free so you will not have to worry about a credit card. As for the PayPal thing, you should not need a CC to set it up! just a checking or savings acount
