+fox-and-the-hound Posted May 15, 2007 Share Posted May 15, 2007 (edited) After reading a thread a moment ago asking for $5 for shipping....yes, that's right $5 for a single coin, I have to ask, "What's it costing you?" I routinely send a single coin safely and securely for about 60 cents including packaging (recycling is great) and sometimes I've even gone so far as $1.11 for a couple coins traveling together. So where are these prices coming from? I've sent multiple coins overseas for less than $5 so what gives? What are your tricks for cutting costs on shipping? How cheaply have you sent or do you send coins? Other than recycling packages, I favor wrapping a coin multiple times in cardstock paper and following up with staples and tape to be extra careful. I routinely hear positive replies upon receipt and the new postage prices actually favor this method of sending even though they're hand-sorted. Yes, I know there's a similar thread about postal rates, but I'd like to keep this one to tricks and tips to keeping costs low. Let's hear how you're doing it.
