If you’ve been holding your low priced single cards in anticipation of the new shipping option from eBay and the USPS that will allow you to ship a card or two—with tracking—for less than a buck, the wait is almost over.
eBay tell us the new program should be up and running by next weekend.
As we told you a few weeks ago, Standard Envelope looks like the answered prayer for thousands of collectors who love to sell on eBay but realize that charging $3 to ship a low cost card just isn’t attractive to buyers. The other option—slipping it into a plain, white envelope and charging, say $1– invites some nasty buyers to claim they didn’t receive the card. That usually means the seller has to refund. Standard Envelope should put an end to that dilemma, lopping off more than $2 from the seller’s cost but still making your package trackable.
We’ll let you know when the program goes live.
The team has partnered with I Got It, a digital auction platform that will work with the Bucks’ app to allow fans and collectors to bid on items.
“Bucks Bids” will be held during every Bucks game and will be live throughout the duration of each game. Some of the items will be worn by players as auctions take place. In addition to other items and experiences that will be up for bid each game, there will be opportunities throughout the season for fans to purchase “buy it now” items through the Bucks Bids platform.
I Got it has also partnered with the New Orleans Pelicans and Saints on similar deals.
