    What happens if I ship with the wrong information ( W/h/L x weight)

    Probably nothing, as long as you aren't overweight. I usually just select the "large envelope or package" options rather than specifying dimensions. But I think the main concern is weight.

    true weight was .560 grams - i put it as .650. I think i'll just void and reprint. (canadian paypal might be a bit different)

    Weight as well as any dimension being over 12" will affect ship price. I'd just void and buy a new label.

    Sorry - no experience with Canadian shipping - ignore anything I said. :)

    I'm going to be selling a bunch of Nikon lenses and three DSLR bodies (D2X and D3) for a friend. If anyone here is looking for a lens, let me know. I can probably sell for less than you'll find anywhere else. All gear is used, but very well cared for.

    Yep you can void through PayPal (you have 24 or 48 hours I think?). If you're over 500 grams, you're already in the 17$ Expedited shipping right? 560 or 650 would be a few cents different

    Are you guys noticing E-Delcon Countries tracking padded FRE? Shipping a tie to Australia, and regular priority is not tracked, FC offers E-delcon, and now when clicking on Padded FRE, that now offers E-Delcon Tracking.

    It confuses me why 1st class is tracked but priority is not. Interesting on the Padded FRE.

    Just noticed both priority envelopes offer it to Australia. Padded & legal. I'll keep an eye out to other E-Delcon's and see if they all include those.

    Quick question about condition: I have a pair of pants I bought NWOT tags at a discount store that have been altered. What do you list that as? NWOT? Pre-owned?

    I wouldn't have a problem listing them as NWOT/Altered, but I assume there are others here who would disagree with me.
