I told my buyer that I'd arrange shipping for $25 plus actual cost. Then I started my arduous journey to locate an actual shipper. Twenty minutes later I "bumped" into uShip. So I posted the auction item photo (obviously I already had one, for the auction) and suddenly bids started coming in. I waited a day for the post to mature (thanks to my auction experience) and then my buyer chose a shipper. The shipper showed up the following morning (A Sunday!) and delivered the item on MONDAY instead of Tuesday as promised, since my buyer was home anyway and the shipper was ahead of schedule. I came in 30% less than the lowest price I would have gotten anywhere else, made $25 for a simple posting ... The only question I have is why is there NOT a button at the end of the auction for this service! I mean really! How cool was that! Why is this place a secret!
