Now my small items are placed in bubble wrap envelopes much larger than merchandise purchased with s/h costs to Buyer costing anywhere from 1.75 to 2.75 (which includes the mandatory USPS tracking).
For example: Today I received a stick pin measuring 2.5" x 1.25" in bubble wrap with a 5.5x8.5 cardboard within a 9x7 bubble wrap envelope - total postal weight: 3 oz! Postage cost to buyer: 2.75. The concern is: Items of this nature have previously always arrived safely (with bubble wrap -or- carboard) in a regular-sized envelope! We should be going GREEN. Save trees. Downsize rubbish.
eBay: Please accommodate your Sellers AND Buyers - - - do not impose unnecessary packing restrictions! Small items = small packaging. Tracking = ok. Leave it up to Seller to determine size of envelope!
