**Rules For Using the Free For Shipping Forum**

When offering items in the FFS forum, you must only charge actual shipping cost plus dc (.19 if you print the label via Paypal or .80 if you mail via the post office). You can also add in the fees paypal will charge by using the paypal fee calculator found here.

Sending priority, you can use a free flat rate envelope, flat rate small/medium/large box. DC is free when sending priority if printing the label online and .65 if you take it to the post office.

You can not charge for supplies unless you have to go buy them, if you have polymailers at home, you can not charge for using one. They are only about .08 each.

You can not charge for packing/handling or for gas to get to the post office.

If you have any questions,feel free to contact a member of the Admin/Mod Team.

By using our FFS area, you agree to these rules.

Can I just say that this may not be entirely true for all areas? My PO changes .80 whether you're shipping first class or priority for DC... Don't know, maybe they're overcharging, but that's what they always do to me

This is true!I always paid 80cents for DC whenever I went to the PO!Maybe the PO is just a collection center within the office premises where DH works.I print labels from home now!

Re: **Rules For Using the Free For Shipping Forum**

I'm just curious, I have some items to list and have seen people post saying they will only respond to pm's from active members, not just for those who post in ffs only, is that ok to put in your ffs listing? Just want to check before I post

My post office charges $0.85 for DC. PayPal fees are $0.30 per transaction plus 2.9% of the total amount. I always use PayPal to print my shipping label to get the free DC.

Re: **Rules For Using the Free For Shipping Forum**

In order to list anything you need an fsot badge, you do not need one in order to buy, though many sellers prefer you have one so no harm in completing the paypal verification process.

Re: **Rules For Using the Free For Shipping Forum**

What does DC stand for? I would like to FFS some items but I don't know where to start... should I list my items first and then figure shipping after someone says they'll take the items? Or do I need to figure out how much it will cost before I list them?
