After checking my seller dashboard I see that I have low ratings for shipping & handling. Apparently people do not like to pay for shipping because 1. I mail everything within the stated time (or sooner) and 2. I take a loss on the shipping on every Parcel Post item I send - I make it up somewhat on the eBay priority discounts but overall at the end of the month there is out of pocket. 3. I pack all breakables with tons of bubble (not cheap) and have had no breakage. It seems I can't win.
