Posted 20 Aug 2008I wasn't sure where to post this, but thought it might be helpful to some:
I am not sure if all of you know or not so I thought i would throw this out there to save you some time and money.
You can print your postage right from your Paypal account for each transaction. Paypal is teamed up with USPS and UPS and gives you a 5% discount to print your shipping from Paypal.
Within the transaction details there is a small tab that says "Print Shipping Label". All you have to do is fill in the weight and dimensions. The address and everything else is filled in as long as the buyer makes payment for "Goods". You can even do Interenational shipping and it even prints out the customs forms.
I exclusively use USPS Priority as i have found it to be the fastest and only just a bit more expense than Parcel Post. For shipping outside of the USA, USPS Priority is 40-50% cheaper than UPS or FEDEX.
I drop my packages off at the post office, but you can schedule for the USPS to pick it up (This has to be done at the USPS website and cannot be done through Paypal as far as I know).
For a complete bike, this is what I pay as the price varies by zone.
To give you an idea: USPS Priority 2-3 day with insurance and delivery confirmation
Oregon to NY is about $60.00.
Oregon to California is about $45.00.
Oregon to the UK is about $170.00
Oregon to Austrlia is about $180.00
Oregon to Germany is about $170.00
Oregon to Washington State (Next door) $30.00
Prices vary if you are shipping to a metropolitan area or a rural area. More information on USPS specs can be obtained at www.usps.com . You can also order all of your boxes on-line for FREE and they will ship them to you.
This is the scale I use and picked it up on ebay for about $20.00.
Posted 21 Jun 2008I just picked this up from a buddy out of Germany and I have never seen one of these. Has anyone ever seen one? Were these limited production?
Any help would be appreciated.
Posted 24 Mar 2008Does anyone remember this company and what TTK stood for?
Posted 12 Jan 2008I just have to say what a guy!! Right around Christmas he was "Paying it Forward" to the members here and he had a few items I was looking for. I offered to buy the parts from him, but he would have no part of that. Today I received the items unexpectedly and it blew my mind!!
What a gesture of kindness!!!
Posted 30 Dec 2007I thought I would scan my card set and share them with everyone.
