shipping question

The po was closed when i went(didnt realize they close early saturdays), i agreed to trade a gc for a dipe, anyway if i go to paypal to ship it wont let me send for any less than $5, i have a stamp already, just need a dc #, any idea how to buy just dc? Will i need to wait until monday to go to the po and do it? It doesnt seem right to pay so much just for a tiny little gc in an envelope, ive sent dipes for around $2.50 that were in bigger packages and weighed more(of course i paid at the PO). Im thinking there is a link to a cheaper shipping method that im not seeing?

Re: shipping question

Do you have a polymailer of a larger envelope? Just ship it first class on PP. It will cost under $2

i was shipping on usps, it doesnt give a first class option. She gave me her address, we didnt swap pp, i pm'd her to let her know but didnt get a pm back yet. I just have a standard size envelope, does the envelope size make a difference in the price?

You can't ship with dc unless you ship first class... But you can't ship first class without it being a certain thickness. I usually crumple up a piece of paper and put the ball into my envelope to make it thick enough. Shipping is usually $1.68 on pp with dc for it. You can not ship first class on USPS site. Hope that helps! And you can use the "multi-order shipping" on pp to print a label even if you didn't receive $$ from her.
