    What your doing works so IMHO why change it. .
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    The reason he wants to change it.....it is a huge hassel to have to go to the post office everytime you need to ship first class. If he gets a scale, ships First Class USPS through paypal...it will make his life a whole lot easier!! He can still ship the most economical way...but with a lot less time involved! ZQ

    Dutch, I also ship first class through paypal. I would imagine you could just drop virtually all your packages in a mail box (less than 13 ounces). I just mail everything on my walk to or from work.

    Thanks ZQ, I then change my vote to change the shipping method. The easier and faster it is for you to ship your gear the more time you'll have to develop new gear for us

    I guess I'm echoing others in saying First Class is fine, but giving the option of faster if the customer wants it would be great.
    +1 on the above.

    First class isn't always slow, closer zones are just as fast a priority. With Paypal and a scale, all you have to do is weigh it, throw it in an envelope, and hit "print shipping Label". Done

    If that is your machine shop I just saw on a hammock sock video, I think you can handle this small task.

    Keep in mind, you must have at least 1 Priority package to schedule a pickup online. Otherwise, you have to drop First Class mail off at the Post Office.

    My mailman picks up and drops off my packages on my dining room table.

    Althought 1 priority package is a must for scheduling a pick up, I put first class mail packages out for the mailman all the time, and he picks them up without any issues. ZQ

    Yes, that's true. I wasn't thinking about leaving it out by the mailbox. I was thinking bigger stuff than Dutch is likely to send out.
