Shipping Fees

USPS - 3 to 8 Business Days

 $3.99

USPS - Priority Mail 1 to 3 Business Days

 $14.95

 

The above shipping fees are paid by the buyer and transferred to the seller’s PayPal account along with the listing price of the book. Please verify the weight of the book in the packaging you are using with the United States Post Office.  If the shipping fee will not cover the cost of the shipping and packaging, we suggest that you increase the price of the book to make up the difference.

For the USPS 3 to 8 Business Days, we recommend that you use either First Class Mail or Media Mail.  Use the USPS for the Priority Mail, and please keep in mind that you need to ship the items quickly to keep your customer happy and pleased with your service. You can use Fedex and UPS to ship your books, but you will find that the United States Postal Service will have the best rates.
