Jason, if you ship internationally, to make it easier on yourself just let everyone know there is two methods:  Flat rate envelope ($12) or Flat Rate Box ($40).  If it doesn't fit inside the envelope, it's going in the box. No muss no fuss.  That should cover 99.9% of your overseas stuff.  The only time consuming item is filling out the customs form, and if you print it out online (which I do) you just check a few boxes and it's done (the printer prints out the customs form as a part of the shipping label).  You do still have to wait in line (or go to the dutch door if you post office has  a pickup/drop off exclusive window) but you just hand the items to the mail person since the postage is already printed and affixed to the package.  Best decision I made a year ago was printing out my own postage at home!

Thanks I'll definitely try that out.

I don't plan to ship internationally to people I don't know and who don't know me, but if someone has a recommendation or is a reular here then I don't expect the same problems and I'm willing to make an effort for the shipping. But I do want to streamline it as much as possible.

Hey, I mentioned this in another post, but any memebrs here who are outside the US who'd like to bid should let me know so I can put them on an exemption list. Otherwise I have it set up to block international bidders.


i posted a msg about this on another thread. seems a shame to operate like this. i dont buy that often of late, so only spot things last minute sometimes and then find there isnt enough time to msg you and then bid. you have had quite a few things up that i wanted to bid on.

US only does my head in anyway

Shrinkwrapped Nanorien Stones:

Only a three day listing so not surprised that the price is as low as it is.

Why do sellers post things like RARE and Super Mint. If a buyer needs to be told that an item is rare they aren't going to be the one paying a lot for it. And what is SUPER MINT! I think it comes from the days when I managed a comic book store, but the Mintyness of things just irritates me.

Are we looking at the same auction?  Where does it say either of those comments on the Nanorien Stones auction?  And why is it that the "mintyness" of an item irritates you?  Is it because that word is used way too much to describe items?  Or is it something else?

Plus no Paypal accepted.


Have a little faith in people and the postal service Shane.  Of my 400+ transactions on Ebay over the years, over 75% of them I paid with a money order.  Only twice did I have a problem.  I have had more than my share of PayPal problems.

I believe this seller used rare and minty many times on his other auctions.

Mint is not only used to often it is inaccurate and Super Mint is just plain stupid. Near mint has a definite meaning but nothing, even shrinkwrapped items, are without flaw.

Oh I do, but as Al even alluded to with his comment, it lessens the amount of people bidding.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I have no familiarity with the non-GDW stuff, but of the GDW stuff there I know that the Atlas of the Imperium, Signal GK, and Secrets of the Ancients can be slightly more difficult to find than others.
