    Hi folks, it looks like the old rules post has vanished, so I wanted to revisit the basic trading forum rules. Phil allows us to use his webspace, out of his own pocket, so let's try to live by the following:

    1) Please do NOT post to BUY or SELL plants in this forum. You may ask for compensation for shipping, but that is all. Also, please don't say "free plants" and charge $8 for shipping.

    Just a friendly reminder for everyone.

    I agree, but I do have to add one thing. $8.00 for shipping is not high. I like to use priority mail flat rate boxes, and those cost $8.00, and that's not even adding anything extra to cover your packing material.

    $4.05 is the flat fee for priority mail, and boxes are free [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Price gets higher if it weighs more.

    Rules are gone? Nope, they are still stuck to the top. You can also get to them from here.

    depending on whats being shipped $8 may or may not be to high but it can easily be seen when its not unreasonable. depending on what being shipped when you factor in packaging materials and insurance and such you can get close to $8 easily especially with neps larger than youngins.

    I meant the flat rate boxes. They are a flat eight dollars to ship. I try not to use those unless I am sending something heavy and I can save money that way, but regardless of what you put in those boxes or where it is going, it costs eight dollars to ship. They are different from the regular priority mail boxes. I mail a lot of stuff since I sell on ebay. Now, charging 20.00 for shipping and handling is going too far, but eight dollars is not. You can ship cheaper than that, though.

    Well, unless you send to another "continent", it's cheaper to use regular priority mail, even you include insurance and Track and Confirm. Also it's not the plant that weighs a lot, it's the soil. Maybe it costs a lot for inspection that country requires.

    Hello guys! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    If you ship anything thru USPS Priority Mail from any part of the Nation to any part of the Nation (including 50 states and all the terrotories) and its weight is 1 lbs or less the standard rate is $4.05. If you are going to send it in a flate rate Priority Mail Box, as long as what you are sending can get into that box it will be $8.10. So the boxes that USPS have as a flat rate (boxes) are $8.10.

    Just to give you the exact rates [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
