Agreed. In all these years nobody has yet come up with an auction site that touches ebay.

You know what’s interesting to me is that as I recall you’ve always had the option to leave star ratings for PWCC .. until now .. and since the recent fat shipping change padding. Knowing that many would not be inclined to leave that 5 stars (regardless of whether or not they post it, logic would say few would find it “very reasonable”) and the likelihood that would drop them below a 4.8 - it seems that eBay just removed that option.

Indeed rank does have its privileges
In that case, you're probably paying for insurance. I don't see a problem with it, especially since they are upfront with shipping costs. Just price shipping into your bid. Simple.

That's nothing, Heritage got me $30 for a single $1300 exhibit in that same envelope.

I think if PWCC chose to NOT sell on Ebay and move their business to a catalog auction house like Hunt and Huggins & Scott, they would be just as successful.

I don't know...they move a LOT of product. I think that if they could make a viable business on their own, they'd have done so by now. Brent seems pretty savvy, so if there was a chance he could cut out the eBay commissions, he'd have done it. He pays eBay every month because he sees value in it. Personally, I don't think they'd make as much money on their own.

No question they have the following but I am not sure I see them doing as well outside of ebay. I think it could get more expensive and due to the sheer volume of product I think it would not move as efficiently especially if they went to a printed catalog.

The volume of material they sell, and the types of consignments they get for the most part, are not compatible with a catalog auction.

Nobody else gets that .. that I am aware of (unless shipping was free)

$25 ship on 6 cards on most recent, then then they show up in a cheap, flimsy $7 USPS flat rate envelope.

Either those rules aren't enforced or some have immunity.

Well, consider what PSA charges in shipping for even low $ cards. To top it off, they require every type of service be sent with separate orders. So, if you have a regular submission, a review, and a crossover, you're paying high shipping costs THREE separate times.......and both directions. 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.

Shipping costs also include packing materials and labor costs. It does take time to properly package a shipment.

As for the feedback on communication I believe this is only an option if you asked a question related to this purchase. I have received a quick response any time I've contacted pwcc and have never found their shipping costs to be unreasonable.
