Yes. 50 cents less for better shipping.

Other seller = $4.50 for 1st class mail
You = $5 for ****tier shipping
Also you = $8 for 1st class mail

Sounds like you're gouging.

I already explained that we charge a flat $5 fee for anything domestic. Dude could have ordered 13 records for that. He only ordered a CD, which rarely happens, so my partner upgraded to first class because it's based on weight. First class actually costs more in postage. It's like going from $3.33 to $4.20. That other seller makes 30 cents to pay for packaging and handling. We charge $5 because our mailers cost us $1.20 each which leaves us with 53 cents profit that gets obliterated everytime someone orders more than one item. Weight goes up. Postage goes up.

You're not understanding the concept of shipping and handling. Also, there are thousands of sellers on discogs. I know a guy in Europe that ships to the US for 5 euro. No idea how he does it because it costs me $23.50 to ship there. He either takes a huge loss or he has a discounted shipping service.

Shipping charges aren't standardized. They're case by case depending on materials used.

Also, the ****tier shipping is the cheapest for the buyer, not for me. Once you go over 8 ounces, first class is out, media mail is available at $3.33 or you can go priority for like $7.60.

Do I lecture you on how to cook a ****ing whopper?

Now why didn't you say all that before instead of being evasive?

I was challenging you to do the research.

I got off work yesterday and got in my truck to go disc golfing, it was sunny and mild, I turned on Sirius to the Deep Tracks station and this came on:

Still a favorite after hearing it 40 years ago. It reminded me of how I'd feel when I was a kid listening to FM radio and Ozzy would come on and I'd somehow feel connected to other people in a shared experience. Kind of exhilarating actually.

Maybe it's just with discogs, but if the post office ****s up it's still expected that the seller will reconcile it, (ofc in this case all you could say was it's still on on the way)

This is one of probably 85 similar questions about where their packages are. People don't understand and are stupid.

When an I going to see this? This order is from 12/21, as of 1/3 there is no information from USPS tracking, you need to contact them and let me know if you are going to get the package to me or provide a refund.
The guy starts off like this with his panties in a bunch using disguised language to try to exploit an uncontrollable situation to get a free record. **** him.

I'd have given him a tip or something for being a good person. Decent neighbors are a blessing.
