You can ship all your orders together, and have them returned together, if you ask them to do so AND are willimg to have everything returned to you at the slowest turn around time of everything you submitted. Also, if you create a FedEx account and provide them the #, they will ship it using your account (and therefore your insurance), which makes things cheaper.

I'm not entirely sure why it's such an operational anomaly requiring separate shipping; One of their 18 graders is going to look at all three and do essentially the same thing.

PWCC seems like a bargain in comparison.

Lol, those "outrageous" fees are less than any other auction house you can sell with...by a considerable margin.

They have a private collectibles policy that covers them for any and all shipping losses as long as they ship using an approved method, with signature confirmation after a certain $ level.

They DO NOT pay for insurance on any packages that they ship!!!
Yup, their private collectibles policy is free to them. I'm sure the insurance underwriter sees millions of dollars worth of product being sent out each month and insures each transaction for free. Use your head.

I was surprised to see the amount of neutral and negative feedback but I guess, being as big and popular as they are, I should have expected to see some.

What's not surprising, however, is most talk is about the cost of shipping and how their cards were packaged.

Has there always been this amount of negative/neutral feedback before or has it increased as of late?

My point was mostly the Negative/Neutral feedback about shipping their shipping fees and the "real" amount it costs them. Also, as you can see for yourself, not many are happy with how their cards were packaged.

What I have also noticed is their fees have jumped again already.
One thing I have read quite frequently on here, in the past, was that their packaging was always very good but that also seems to have changed based on the feedback.

There is no doubt in my mind, like I have said numerous times before, they are banking large with their shipping fees. Just because some auction houses may charge more sometimes, it still doesn't make it right, and each operation, which isn't an apples to apples comparison, is different from the next.

That is not necessarily true, in fact some of the advertisers on here, as well as a few others, charge 0% sellers fee, depending on item. You can list items on ebay for less yourself. Granted you or I may not get the bids/and or watchers they get.

And that is the part I don't get. Ebay is supposed to level the playing field. Do buyers REALLY want to pay double the price through an auction, when a lesser "no-name" seller is selling the exact same card in the exact same grade (sometimes in better condition) for less?

Oh, you're one of those people... if ebay/pp only charged buyers a fee of 13% instead...

I never claimed their policy was free. I'm just saying they don't shell out for extra insurance on each package that they send. Perhaps you should use your head???

Right, but they charge a buyer's premium which comes straight out of the consigner's pocket. Do the math. eBay is by far the cheapest place to auction cards.

They pay for insurance. Each parcel costs them something. You're a fool if you think they aren't "paying extra insurance". By definition, their insurance policy is "extra insurance". Look, I run multiple businesses and have first hand knowledge of how this works. You clearly don't know what you're talking about.
