Actually ebay now takes 9 percent of the total sale including shipping.Padding shipping is against ebay policy and now totally senseless.It is best too go free shipping with all costs included in the sale.This way you get an automatic 5 star rating on your shipping cost stars.

If you use a medium flat rate box that will be just right in size and it is a set price too anywhere in america.It also ships very fast,like 3 or 4 days and you will have a happy customer.Don't forget too add delivery confirmation so you can prove the item was delivered.

These rights? where can i find them?

It's only worth giving free shipping for a product you're selling if you absolutely know that product will make some nice ca$h. Let's be honest...you gotta take a hit somewhere.

There should be an option on USPS's website; grab an empty box and measure the size & weight with GPU in it and use that as the data for shipping. On the other hand, for eBay listing, I recommend you calculate so the auction ends on a Sunday night, because that time is when most people are free or able to make bids.

hope that helps~

Once you make an Ebay account, I highly recommend you to chat live with Ebay support. They will guide you to everything you need to know as a seller. With PayPal, I had called support and the person had guided me to right places on their site that had explained what I had needed to know as a seller.

thanks, the card came in this solid looking box that fit the size, I am wondering if i should go for a bigger box? is it safer like that? also do you typically have to buy cushioning foams or does the shipper supply it?

Do you really want to put it up on EBAY? The fees are 9.5% together. As of this April this fee is factored in even on the shipping. How high is your EBAY reputation? If it's less than 10, most likely PP will hold your money hostage for 21 days. Also it won't sell as high, because the buyers won't want to risk it. There's more "great stuff" I can tell you by PM if you are interested.
