    There's an economy option when you ship at the post office... It would be cheaper to ship Priority, I suspect.

    Wow, that's shocking and almost seems unfair. I'd be pretty frustrated if I was misled into a purchase and then was expected to pay to send it back.

    Had a similar event last week, purchased two dress shirts from the same seller. $6ish per shirt for first class shipping, I asked for a price on combined shipping and did not get a response. I requested an invoice with combined shipping and received 2 invoices with each individual item with the $6 per. I then went back to the auctions, noticed there was nothing in the text regarding combining shipping and decided to just pay the cost. They each arrived in individual gray tyvek bags.

    Interesting, thanks for the additional information.

    Quick one for the more experienced folks: Spoo had mentioned how a Short or Long has a significant impact on sale price. What about odd size SCs? I'm talking literal odd sizes, 41, 43, 45, etc. I'm guessing most buyers search or filter by their size, and most places that measure you plug you into an even number.

    I have better luck setting those up as 30-day BIN or BINOBO listings vs. auctions. Without the large audience some sellers have, I'd be lucky to get a single bid in 7 or 10 days. That said - I just noticed I have a 41R Loro Piana blazer on auction (not sure why I listed it as an auction) with 1 watcher - so - that tells me it probably won't even sell.

    I never pass, unless it is really dirty. I was getting about $150 a suit (no-name) last year. We'll have to see how they go this year.

    Any Seller would encourage good will by offering combined shipping. Obviously they wont be on your radar anymore.
