So I have actually a pretty substantial video game collection that I’ve been gathering because I was young, and I’m now considering marketing them on eBay.

You are watching: Best way to ship video games

Those that have actually offered these before, exactly how did you do it? I’ve noticed that shipping on these games is normally cheap or complimentary, so I don’t think they’re including expedited or tracking.

Value of these games averperiods $20-50.

I’m assuming a bubble envelope using fundamental lettermail?

I desire to make certain I’m shipping these effectively but I also don’t want to spfinish all the auction winnings on shipping.

Thanks for the aid.

Further question: perhaps this is a matter of choice, yet would auction or fixed price be much better for games?

Edit:I have to have mentioned this earlier, yet I live in Canada and so much have just offered Canada article. I arrangement on shipping to Canada and also USA

Try and also remain ameans from bubble envelopes. I buy most games and also you won’t think how many come with broken situations, I would say 1 in 4. When i ship out games, I usage an 8 x 6 x 4 box, wrap the game in a couple layers of bubble wrap, and put a couple air pillows in package. The box does not include that a lot weight, but protects the game so much better than a bubble envelope.

K that’s what I was came to around. Don’t want to threat games being damaged while shipping. I currently have bubble wrap from bigger sales, and boxes themselves can be cheap.

I was simply worried if a box have the right to still be sent lettermail (around $1-1.50 here). Or if being a box grossly rises the shipping cost

for cd/dvd based games favor ps4/xbox, I usage 7x9 paper bubble mailers inside of 8x10 poly bubble mailers for the included defense. For catridge based games I will certainly usage the exact same envelopes and also usage scrap cardboard pieces to wrap the cart.

shipped using usps first course.

if its a much more expensive game choose ncaa footround 14 (xbox360), I ship usps pincluded flat price (and safeguard the game through cardboard) for the contained insurance and/or pay for enough insurance simply in situation.

I constantly include/account for shipping price in my buy it now listings and I do not execute auctions.

As with anything else, I research "marketed comparable items" to aid determine the going price for the item. Ill readjust the price for a "fast nickel" or "long dime". Sometimes Ill accept a finest market.

Yea for even more expensive games, I would have actually insured shipping. But that’s usually a minimum of $15-20 right here (unmuch less I missed an option) and I figured that would certainly kill a sale on a game that expense around the same

I carry out have extra cardboard and also bubble wrap though, I might add that in the bubble envelope for added protection

Thanks
