++ this. It's not 1984. No one works for $3.50/hour any longer. If PWCC stayed in CA, it would be double that. The days of doing anything cheap in America are over; China does that for us.

Nobody else gets that .. that I am aware of (unless shipping was free)

$25 ship on 6 cards on most recent, then then they show up in a cheap, flimsy $7 USPS flat rate envelope.

I am not sure how charging $25 dollars for shipping then having your pkg show up in a $7 envelope equates, but I guess some are OK with that it seems.

People aren't really mentioning the insurance aspect. 6 cards could be $50 or it could be $2,000. Insurance is a real cost. That's where the majority of PSA's return shipping comes from, not the boxes or weight themselves.

Yep, insuring a $2,000 card is well over $25 without even considering the actual shipping charge.

I am not sure if I had ever looked in the past at PWCC's feedback, but today, for some reason, I decided too.

I was surprised to see the amount of neutral and negative feedback but I guess, being as big and popular as they are, I should have expected to see some.

What's not surprising, however, is most talk is about the cost of shipping and how their cards were packaged.

Has there always been this amount of negative/neutral feedback before or has it increased as of late?

I think 76,500 positive vs 22 negative is pretty good. It's actually
funny when you read some of the negative responses one person
left five of them. On an auction that ended on July 31 he left feedback
and said they "continuously shill their auctions". He left the same feedback
for a card he won on August 30 on an card he won on august 22 he left
off the "continuously" and just said they shill their auctions.

What is PWCC's alternative auction website though...? I agree ebay fees are outrageous, but PWCC likely needs ebay as much as they need him.

I'm sure PWCC loves to quote "insurance" as one of the reasons why they overcharge so much for their shipping, but it's a huge lie - don't buy into it!

They have a private collectibles policy that covers them for any and all shipping losses as long as they ship using an approved method, with signature confirmation after a certain $ level.

They DO NOT pay for insurance on any packages that they ship!!!

So a private collectibles policy is *not* insurance? Thanks for the clarification.

What I'm trying to say is that they don't shell out $25 to insure a $2000 package.

Yes, a private collectibles policy certainly has costs associated with it, but spread out over thousands of packages per month, it's a minuscule amount to fully insure each package - plus it also covers them in the event of a fire, flood or theft at the location where their merchandise is stored.
