I am always happy when people email me with questions about my auctions and will try to answer it as quickly as I can!
I will send high bidders a notification email after the end of an auction. You can find your total, my address, and some basic instructions in it. All you have to do is read this email carefully and respond to it with your address and shipping method and I'll be a happy camper!
(in order of preference)
I am not your psychic friend. If I don't know what you won, I will have a hard time sending it to you. Moral of the story? Please include a note stating clearly your name and address, your item, and how you want it shipped. I don't know how many times this needs to be said since it just seems obvious to me, but I have gotten a lot of payments that are just naked in a plain white, non-security envelope. That spells potential disaster to me! Be safe and conceal your payment!
First Class- I like to send flat or small items via first class mail. I use either a business size envelope or a manilla envelope with a clasp depending on the item's size, and do my best to ensure it will not be bent or crushed due to postal negligence. This is also the cheapest method since it usually doesn't cost more than a dollar. I try to be as accurate as possible with shipping estimates, but until I get a postal scale I might be a few cents off in either direction. If I mis-quote you it will likely not be by more than $0.50, and the extra change will be applied to buying things like envelopes, bubble wrap, and packing peanuts which are cheap but not free.
I leave feedback after every buy or sell transaction and expect the same in return! It seems crazy not to leave feedback since it only takes a few seconds and is the only way to build up a reputation on ebay. Check out the feedback forum, they have a way you can leave feedback for all your transactions in the past 60 days at the same time!
I obviously cannot cash money orders made out to the wrong person. My name is Nicole Simon. I understand that winning multiple auctions around the same time can get confusing, but it makes it a lot easier for both of us when information is double checked. Please make sure that money orders and envelopes are made out to the correct name and address! It would take an entire web page to list all the variations on my name and address that I have seen, and I've always considered my name to be rather simple ^_^
