Default Absurd PWCC Shipping Cost........BEWARE

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1910-L40-Mu...p2047675.l2557

As if the shilling isn't enough.....I won an L40 Amherst Baseball leather on ebay last night. It said $15.00 shipping, so I should have emailed them but their Shipping matrix shows $4 for a single item won between $0-$250. I emailed to confirm after winning and was told that it fell in the oversize clause of their shipping. The leather is 2-9/16 by 3-9/16, exactly 1/16 by 1/16 larger than a standard sized card. It comes with an envelope that it came in which is maybe 1/16 larger than that as it fits snugly inside.

I was informed by Bobby Rittenhouse of PWCC that the $15.00 was, indeed, a good shipping charge for the item. Should have checked with them first because didn't think they would try to go with the absurd shipping. SOOOOO.....be sure you look very closely as they do not really understand the true meaning of the word oversized. I'll be expecting this item to be shipped in the sturdiest of containers, double-boxed due to the extreme fragility, in the timeliest of manners.

Indeed. Far more interesting than a major hobby figure found by a federal jury to have committed market manipulation.

The shipping price was clearly listed. You should have only bid if you were willing to pay the published shipping cost.

However, as an eBay seller who values customer service I would have offered you a reduced shipping cost if in fact the actual shipping costs were going to be significantly lower than what I charged you.

Sounds right on both accounts.

Yep.

Listed or not, $11 extra for 1/16 x 1/16 larger is a bad way to run your business IMO.

Having gotten shipments from them before, they are not spending 11 bucks extra to ship Tom's item, I can promise you that.

Default Shipping Costs

Interesting...i've always found that PWCC is pretty fair with shipping costs considering the card is insured as well. However, if you are looking for similar quality and free shipping and insurance, you may want to look at www.cardboardpicasso.com. They have an Ebay store too but the prices on their direct site are always cheaper.
