Yeesh! The Post Office makes more than we do on an eBay sale and they are going broke!

Don't get me wrong, the Post Office is still the best and least expensive for us to send our item to Singapore today but they are charging $3 more than what we are selling it for and that means our item could be sold for more if we did not have to ship it.

I sold a book to Germany a while back for $10 and it cost $40 to ship it. When we saw the price, we offered to cancel the sale but our customer still thought it was a good deal since he could not find the book anywhere else, but come on!
