    I'm going to be listing alot of eMacs and G4 towers on eBay and am going to need quite a few supplies for shipping them across the country. Where do you recommend I buy the material if I'm buying in large quantities?

    would it be more cost effective to do it that way?

    In my eyes it would be cheaper b/c you have to pickup all the supplies. Then lug it to where you are shipping from and get insurance. If you priced the shipping price on eBay a little higher it would make out on both of you (seller, buyer). I tried your way and it seems a lot more time spent preparation then its worth

    Also I would recommend you get insurance on the shipment. As for your Return policy I would also add you will not accept returns unless you want to. To make a long story short I got SCREWED on my sale with my MDD and the buyer sent it back broken which UPS broke and since she shipped it back I got stuck. Best of luck in your sales
